The classrooms and gym are expected to be open when students return after winter break on Jan. 8, 2018.&nbsp;<br /><br />The construction began with the removal of the mobile classrooms. During the project, the school office is being reconfigured and provide a more secure entrance to the school. Remodeling also will include adding a small group office, new building access and a vestibule on the west side of the school, additional teachers-only parking on the west side, and updating and replacing the building sprinkling system. The east side parking lot will be resurfaced and the roof over the school office and multipurpose room (the current gym) will be replaced. &nbsp;</p> Mon, 25 Sep 2017 11:55:44 -8200 http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=5#5357 Calendar for the 2017-18 School Year http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=5#5397 <img src="http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/icons/calendar.png" style="float:left; margin-right:3px;" /> <p>The <a href="http://www.d70schools.org/lib/redirect.php?res_id=1301">2017-18 school year calendar</a>. &nbsp;</p> Mon, 23 Oct 2017 19:41:48 -8200 http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=5#5397 What's New In Language Arts http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=5#5311 <img src="http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/icons/notebook.png" style="float:left; margin-right:3px;" /> <p><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2F63qrD5jo4">What&#39;s new in the kindergarten through fifth grade&nbsp;language arts and literature program.</a>&nbsp;</p> Fri, 25 Aug 2017 14:50:24 -8200 http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=5#5311 Bundle Up! http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=5#5418 <img src="http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/icons/snowflake2.png" style="float:left; margin-right:3px;" /> Cold temperatures are here!&nbsp; Students will go outside for recess if the temperature is above 10 degrees fahrenheit and above zero degrees windchill.&nbsp; Kids need fresh air and exercise, so please send them prepared to be comfortable outside playing on cold days for a 20 minute recess!&nbsp; Fri, 10 Nov 2017 15:43:08 -8200 http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=5#5418 School Supply List 2017-18 http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=5#5283 <img src="http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/icons/supplies.png" style="float:left; margin-right:3px;" /> <a href="http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/lib/redirect.php?res_id=688">Here is the school supply list for 2017-18. </a><br /><br />If you pre-ordered the school supply box from SchoolKidz, it will be waiting in your student&#39;s classroom on the first day of school.&nbsp; Remember to check the above list for things that will not be in the pre-ordered box, such as gym shoes to leave at school and backpacks.
