Kepner Beacon Community,
“It does not take many words to tell the truth” - Sitting Bull
It's this time of year that I take time to reflect and appreciate my own family. I have a wonderful wife, two beautiful sons, that I give all my thanks to this season. I hope everyone enjoys the break, finds time to rest, rejuvenate and be grounded. When we return we will be all in and ready to wrap up semester 1. Thank you for all of your dedication and support. KBMS is grateful for each and every one of you. See you when we return to school on Monday, November 29th.

Kepner Beacon was selected as an awardee of Colorado Creative Industries and Think 260 Arts’ 2021-2022 Colorado Arts Partnership (CAP) Grant! 

Colorado Creative Industries, a division of the Office of Economic Development and International Trade, and Think 360 Arts for Learning have joined forces to launch this new collaborative grant-making program. CAP Grants support Colorado schools in executing innovation and creativity surrounding their arts in education. 

KBMS will use these funds to collaborate with our community partner New Cottage Arts to continue to provide music education through enrichment programming with their Guitar and Voice & Instrument exploration classes.
