Dear Sopris Families,

We happily welcome March and hope that some warmer weather will be coming shortly. Before that happens, please remember to encourage your child to dress accordingly for the colder morning recess times we continue to have.  

As we reflect on last month, we are thankful for all the great participation and support from students, parents, local businesses, and staff of our "I Love to Read" month! It was a great success with our author visit, our penny jar contest tracking the time read by each classroom, our book character dress up days, and our school wide book give away / root beer float party supported by Alpine Bank and our PTA. Although we transition into March, please join us in encouraging the importance of reading through the year!  

March will be a quick month with Spring Break coming up March 19th-27th. Prior to this break know we are targeting the importance of physical fitness with our kids with support from our Wellbeing Committee. We ask that you join us in promoting an increase in movement and activity, and a decrease in "screen time" with the kids. Here is to a March filled with learning and physical activity!
