Kepner Beacon Community,
“If you cannot measure it, you cannot improve it.”
Lord Kelvin

Next week our students will be taking their third round of interim tests in Math, Literacy, and Science. We are excited to see how much they have grown! Ask your student what their goals are for each test and remind them that they have been learning and they can reach their goal! 

Have a great weekend KBMS families!

DPS Declining Enrollment
Advisory Committee

The Declining Enrollment Advisory Committee will work to create recommendations on how the district should address ongoing declining enrollment, which impacts our ability to provide equitable, high-quality educational programs for our students. Superintendent Marrero will review the committee’s recommendations on criteria to identify, close and/or consolidate schools with significant declining enrollment.
Diversity and inclusion will be an important consideration for this task force and members will include families, students, community partners, school leaders, teachers and staff, and central office leaders. 
View the online form to learn more about the committee selection criteria and submit an application.

When you walk down the hall on Wednesday afternoons something you may overhear, or think to yourself, is “what is that delicious smell?” The answer is always the Kepner Cooks class! During this class the students were making Egg Bites in muffin tins. Yum!

Did you know the Girl Scouts of Colorado offer a variety of virtual educational programming for all students K-12 in Colorado? Inspiring Futures is a career series where youth get to meet various professionals over Zoom and learn about their career path. Monthly Equity Talks series are virtual chats and presentations with a different topic each month that focuses on equity and justice work in different Colorado communities. There are also upcoming (virtual) events for Black History Month that are open to community members across the state including Black History Family Trivia Night, a Community Presentation on Black Women in American History, and a K12 showcase where kids and families can join us over Zoom to share what they've learned throughout February.
