Remote Learning in Englewood Schools
This week, the Englewood Schools community started a new adventure: Remote Learning. Some parents may be feeling relieved while some are feeling pressure and uncertainty. This newsletter contains resources for parents to help with the logistical and emotional complications that may come from Remote Learning.

As a reminder, your student's teacher, principal and our district's Learning Services Department are here to help you every step of the way. If you need help, please reach out.

Free Meals
Englewood Schools is offering free "Grab & Go" meals to all children 18 and under Monday through Friday. Meals are served from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Bishop Elementary and Cherrelyn Elementary.

Drive ups and walk ups are welcome. Children do not need to be present to receive meals.

If your family needs more support with food and meals, please see this list of resources.
Technical Support
If your student's device gets broken or lost, or you need some other type of technical support during remote learning, please email to get assistance.

Good News from Our Schools
Addams Family Musical
The Englewood Campus theater arts department, led by Amy Pickering and Garlyn Saddler (with the help of many others,) gave a memorable performance of  The Addams Family ! Cast included EHS, ELA & EMS students and they brought out record crowds to their two recent shows.
Old Maddox Demolition
On Wednesday, March 11, demolition started on the old Maddox building. Students at Englewood Early Childhood Education had a front row seat to watch the exciting process! The old school is now fully demolished and a bigger parking lot as well as a public playground will be put in its place.
ELA/EMS Wish Week
The EMS/ELA 2nd Annual Wish Week was a success the week of March 9. Despite having to cancel some events at the end of the week, the schools raised just over $2000 for their wish kid Isaiah to visit Disney! Special thanks to Ms. Crispino and Ms. Mulry as well as our student leadership for all of their planning and hard work.
All State Choir
Congratulations to Elspeth Wooldridge, EHS Junior, for her outstanding showing in this year's Colorado All State Choir! After a rigorous audition experience in the Fall, Elspeth had to prepare high-level music in varying languages to pass through a 2nd audition upon her entering the 3-day All State Choir event in February 2020. Not only was Elspeth 100% prepared, she earned a solo spot in the All State Choir performance at the Buell Theater, DCPA, and represented our school with excellence! Way to go, Elspeth!
EHS Senior Chosen as Daniels Scholar
