Starting July 1, 2015, the State of Colorado requires all students to have 2 Varicella vaccinations (chickenpox).  Colorado has previously only required one Varicella vaccine.  Children who have had the chickenpox are not required to have the vaccines.  Parents should provide the vaccination records or the dates when the child had the chickenpox in order to meet the requirement.

Next time your child has a doctor's appointment, please review your child's vaccination records with the doctor to ensure they are up to date for all Colorado immunization requirements.

      Why Do Kids Act That Way?

Parent Coaching to Replace Strife with Peace in Your Home

Being a parent is a wonderful, yet sometimes daunting task.  Join PIN to hear developmental psychologist Nancy Buck tackle the challenges facing families today using the science of choice theory psychology.  Buck will explain the factors that motivate all behavior (including yours!) and will explain new, highly-effective strategies to make family life more peaceful.  Parents of kids of all ages will learn about:

  • The "instruction manual" all children are born with
  • The inherent conflict between parent and child, and how to cope
  • A new model of ages and stages and how to parent effectively through it all
  • Strategies to make parenting more joyful

Nancy Buck, Ph.D., is a parenting coach and expert in children's motivation and behavior.  She is also a registered nurse, author and national key-note speaker.  Buck founded Peaceful Parenting Inc® to teach parents the skills necessary to navigate the push-pull relationship between themselves and their children. 

Parents, school administrators and community members are welcome and encouraged to attend PIN's free presentations.  No need to RSVP—just come!  Presentations are FREE and are held the first Tuesday of each month at:

10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse 

zombie.jpgProstart.jpgTheater group.jpg 

The Drama Club and ProStart collaborated to produce both a play and dinner for theatre patrons on Thursday evening, February 5th.  Drama Club students produced the play, "10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse."  The play ran Wednesday, February 4th without dinner, and Thursday, February 5th with dinner.  There were about 150 patrons between the two nights.   

27 cast and crew members produced the play, and 23 ProStart students planned and made the dinner.  Dinner was served by both Drama Club students and ProStart students.  The ProStart students catered dinner for just over 100 people.  The cast and crew were fed earlier in the evening, and the theatre patrons were fed salad and baked spaghetti before the play at 6:30 p.m., and then assorted cookies for dessert at intermission.

The original menu ideas were put together by the sponsors, Mr. Tim Brown and Ms. Cynthia Hardy.  The ProStart students took the original ideas and modified them to include special diets.

The basic menu was a garden salad with two dressing options, baked spaghetti, Garlic Toast (or tomato slices for the Gluten free option), and assorted cookies.

There were three options of baked spaghetti available.  All were with Marinara sauce and cheese.  The standard option included spaghetti noodles and meatballs.  There was a vegetarian option, and a gluten free option.  There was also a gluten free dessert option.

The desserts were nut-free and egg-free Mexican Wedding Cookies, nut-free and egg free Lemon Glazed Cookies, a Healthy modified recipe of Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Gluten free and egg free Lemon Glazed Cookies.

This was a highly successful event that should be the first of much future collaboration!

Parent Tips for Accurate Attendance

To excuse an absence

  • Call the attendance voicemail line as soon as possible to report an absence:  720-886-5450
  • Keep the message short; speak clearly
  • State the reason for the absence
  • Clearly state the date of the absence and the specific times of the absence
  • Spell the last name.  Speak slowly and clearly

For early dismissals

  • Send the student to the attendance office first thing in the morning with a note stating the time and reason for the early dismissal.  The attendance clerk will provide an early dismissal pass, which is required to leave class early.

Why do I get an automated call that my student missed class even though my student was in class and/or I called in to excuse the absence?

  • It can take several hours to record all of the calls off of the voicemail line.  It is possible that the absence just didn't get recorded in time.
  • Teachers occasionally mark attendance incorrectly or forget to change an unexcused absence to a tardy when a student arrives late.

If you have a question about why you are getting an automated call, please call the dean directly.  Thank you!
