Fall Fling

Englewood Education Foundation (EEF) provides scholarships each year to graduates of Englewood High School and Colorado's Finest High School of Choice. EEF also supports teachers with creativity grants to fund above-and-beyond learning projects and field trips!

Attending the Fall Fling is a great way to support Englewood Schools' students now and in the future!

Tickets can be purchased online or at any school site and at the Roscoe Davidson Administration Building.
State Test Scores Celebration
We are so proud of the hard work of our staff members and students as we celebrate overall increases in our state test scores and performance ratings!

As a district, Englewood Schools saw large increases in the number of students who met or exceeded expectations in almost all subject areas in almost all grades. We are particularly proud of:
  • A 13% increase in the number of students who met or exceeded expectations in third grade English Language Arts
  • A 16% increase in the number of students who met or exceeded expectations in fourth grade English Language Arts
  • An 11% increase in the number of students who met or exceeded expectations in fifth grade English Language Arts
  • An 18% increase in the number of students who met or exceeded expectations in eighth grade Math

Based on these scores, and the overall growth of our students, we are proud to say that preliminary ratings by the Colorado Department of Education show Englewood Schools as moving up an entire rating level on our District Performance Framework. Many of our schools have also moved up a rating level, or even two, or they have maintained the “Performance” rating they had in years’ past.
Top 10 Homework Tips
Showing an interest in your child's schoolwork is a key to their success. They want to know that how they do in school is important to you, and homework is a great way to show your support.

So, what are the best ways to help your child with their homework?

  • Be a motivator and a monitor. Ask about assignments, quizzes, and tests. Give encouragement and make yourself available for questions or concerns.
  • Set a good example. Make sure your student sees you working hard at something, too.
  • Praise their work and efforts. Post an aced test or art project on the refrigerator. Mention academic achievements to relatives.

For more homework help tips, please see this article from KidsHealth.
Learn Coding at the Library

No registration or experience required.

New Lunch Charge Policy Reminder
We want to remind families that it is important for kids to have enough money in their account or cash with them to buy a full-price or reduced-price meal. This is because it is important to us that we feed every kid, every day.

Beginning this school year, Englewood Schools has a new lunch charge policy. Students in grades K-6 can now receive, or charge, three meals after they have no more money in their account. After they have received the three meals, they will then get up to 10 "Grab & Go" meals at no cost until they have more money placed in their account. Grab & Go meals consist of a grain, a protein, fresh fruit or vegetables, milk or water and access to the salad bar. Students in grades 7-12 cannot charge meals, but will receive up to 10 Grab & Go meals until they have more money in their account or cash in hand to purchase a meal.

For more complete information, please see this flyer for K-6 and this flyer for 7-12.
