Achieving the extraordinary


Alumni success stories show that together we go further in PSD

What do Perry Ellis, Canada and rabbits all have in common? They connect to three alumni who are making a difference in the world following their academic careers in Poudre School District.  

Mia Stegner (2018 Fort Collins High School), Colin Beard (2013 Fossil Ridge High School) and Leila Singleton (1999 Poudre High School), pictured above from left to right, are all proud alumni of PSD.

“It's so important for young people to see concrete connections made between subjects they enjoy in the classroom and actual, viable career paths,” Singleton said. “... it makes the possibilities for their own futures seem far more attainable: If that person grew up here and made it, I can too!”

Call for Community:

The District Accountability Committee needs you

Those who are able to share their time, talents and voices have an opportunity to support students and schools in a meaningful way as a member of the Poudre School District District Accountability Committee (DAC), which is looking to fill four open seats. 

Katie Watkins, recent co-chair of the District Accountability Committee, shared her 

experience of two years serving on the committee. 

“I invested in something that matters to our community, and I used that knowledge to make changes in our district,” she said.

National food shortages impacting school meals


The PSD Child Nutrition team works with local and regional vendors to ensure that our 25,000 students are served healthy meals every day. Currently, unprecedented food shortages have been affecting PSD and school districts nationwide.

With this challenge, specific ingredients cannot be posted on the NutriSlice website. All ingredients and food substitutions are, however, available daily through each school’s kitchen. Updated information will be posted online as food suppliers are able to guarantee product availability. Families with dietary considerations have been contacted directly. For questions, contact the Child Nutrition Department at 970-490-3557. Read more >>
