CoreVirtues  Letter from Sharon Aguina, Executive Principal

Dear Dragon Families,

We are now heading into the busiest time of the school year. I always like to remind students, teachers, and parents that we still have many learning opportunities coming up and that it's important to take advantage of every one of those opportunities!
With that, we want to acknowledge our wonderful Assistant Principals, Mrs. Katie Gustafson, Mrs. Gael Lester, and Mrs. Jessica Warner, during the National Assistant Principals' Week. These hardworking individuals are the backbone of our school. They are involved in every facet of our school's functioning. To run an excellent school we need a team, and we are lucky to have our dedicated and hardworking AP's! When you see them, please let them know how much they mean to our Dragon community. 
Assistant Principal's Poem
I couldn't decide whether I wanted 
to be a teacher, a lawyer, a police officer,
a politician, a healer, a counselor, 
an arbitrator, a manager, a dispute mediator,
a nurse, a comedian, a researcher,  a coach, 
a security guard, a detective, or a lion tamer. 
So, I became an Assistant Principal!

Please watch the PowerPoint presentation that our Assistant Principals recently gave to SAC (our School Accountability Committee):

Over 40 books have been published depicting his Colorado photography. He teaches photography workshops to adults and children. His latest books are Wildflowers of Colorado and A Colorado Winter .
