Greetings Osprey Community,
Juniors in Ashley Carruth's Humanities class have been diligently preparing for their exhibition next Thursday, from 12:30 to 3:30 at the La Plata County Courthouse, where they will engage in a mock trial for the Supreme Court case Korumatsu v. United States. This case, argued in 1944, challenged and ultimately upheld the constitutionality of internment camps for Japanese American citizens during WWII. In our society today, the forced relocation and incarceration of American citizens has come to be viewed as a discriminatory practice that violates individual rights. Come see how the case will turn out this time around!
Tina Hott is seeking a full-sized refrigerator for her Biology classroom. Do you have one that you're able to donate, so she can safely continue to store specimens for dissection? Her old fridge has gone kaput. Please contact Tina directly at
We're also looking for parent support in getting our students to XBlock on Wednesday afternoons, leaving school at 1:40 and transporting to Catacombs CrossFit on East 8th Street near Horse Gulch. The rest of our off-campus XBlock classes travel by bus, but CossFit relies upon drivers. If you're able to help, please let Bridget know in the main office; you can contact her at
As a reminder, school will be closed on Monday for the Martin Luther King holiday. Enjoy the three day weekend and many thanks for all you do to help the Ospreys soar!
