District News

  • Career Day

    We will be hosting a Career Day on April 4th that will include speakers from a variety of different career fields to include law enforcement, healthcare, audio/video technology, music production, education, and cyber security to name a few.  In addition, there will be an employment and college fair on this day.  As part of this, students will be able to practice their interviewing skills and potentially earn a job on the spot! Students will also be able to talk with admissions representatives from a variety of community colleges, technical schools, and 4 year colleges.  We were able to host our first Career Day last year and it was very meaningful for career speakers and students alike.  Please help us promote this exciting day by having career conversations with your student beforehand.


    Testing Schedule

    As many of you know, the State requires the standardized assessments known as CMAS (Colorado Measures of Academic Success), PSAT and SAT for our different grade levels of students. These tests are a key component in measuring students’ progress in their learning. They are valuable tools for our school as well as for colleges/universities, when students apply. We use the assessments to guide our programming and instruction and colleges rely on the SAT for entrance requirements. For these reasons it is very important to us that all students take these tests and try their very best. The following dates and times outline these tests, which will take place in April. Transportation has been adjusted on these days to accommodate the late start that students will experience on testing days. 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students in the Phoenix Program will need to be dropped off by 8:00 AM to attend these testing dates. If you are unable to provide transportation for your Phoenix Program student, please contact the front office at 719-382-1550 and we can help arrange transportation.

    Homework will be reduced during the testing window to ensure that students are well rested and prepared to perform their best on these assessments. Please refrain from making appointments for students during these test dates to avoid students missing additional class time, due to having to make up tests that were missed. Also, please encourage students to get plenty of sleep and to eat a healthy and hearty breakfast on the days of testing, so that they may show their best and strongest work on these days.

The food pantry is open every Thursday from 3:30-5:30 p.m.  The food pantry is open to District 8 staff, students, and families. Staff will need to show his/her staff ID, students will need to show his/her student ID, and parents will need to verify that they have a student who attends a District 8 school in order to receive food.
