You belong here at PSD


Finding your fit here in PSD can be easy, or it can take practice. But that's what we do.

We push up our sleeves, slip on a mask, and wave to a friend to come along.

Band, athletics, choir, math, art, science. Making friends, joining clubs, including others. Finding your fit doesn't need to be perfect – it's about exploring your community, learning and moving forward together.  

This year, we will explore your stories of how you show your passion for learning. How you strive for growth within your community. How you make teamwork into play and practice into achievement. How we push forward ... together. 

We are PSD and you belong here. 

Peek inside your investment in our kids!


Fifth-grade Bamford Elementary ambassadors Lauren and Afton both agree, their favorite part of their school is the “firetower.” This bright lookout space is tucked away on the west side of the building to get the best view of the mountains, a feature built into most spaces of PSD’s newest elementary, which opened this fall.

Recently, the ambassadors gave guided tours, pointing out the collaborative places they now enjoy learning in with their classmates.

Bamford is the first of three new schools completed as part of the 2016 bond, and features Colorado's mountains, geothermal energy and tributes to their new mascot, the wolf. Read more >>

Team leaders who inspire from across the district

It's about how they show up. How they support each other, whether in their sports, in the classroom or in life. Each month during the 2021-22 school year, a PSD high school student athlete will be highlighted in a new “PSD Athlete of the Month” series. Read more on social >>

Belong and accelerate: How we will support learning for students

A photo of the elementary, middle, and high schools that I attended in my hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania hangs in my PSD office. It's a reminder of where my lifelong passion for education and, ultimately, my journey to this amazing community began. Read the full message >>
