Student Exchange Program: Student Needs Host Family

My name is Morgan McKibben, and I am the Field Director overseeing Colorado for a student exchange program called Youth For Understanding.  I have a student, Josephine (Josi) from Germany who is in need of a new host family.  She is currently attending Silver Creek High School in Longmont, and has grown to love the town and people in it.  She loves singing, sports, pets, math, stitching and spending time with family and friends.

Turkey Trot is TOMORROW!

Tomorrow is our 6th Annual Turkey Trot!  We are so excited!!  Just a reminder that students shirts will be in their classrooms tomorrow morning.  We also wanted to remind everyone to have your students wear tennis shoes, comfortable clothing such as sweat pants and long sleeve shirts and/or sweatshirts.  Please remember NO snow boots, pajamas or clothing not conducive to running.  Also, no Uggs, flip flops, crocs etc.  You will want to make sure your student has a water bottle and have them come ready to run and have a GREAT TIME!

RABC Golf Ball Drop

Hello. My name is Kaydene Hubert & I am one of the Co-Presidents of the Silver Creek Raptor Activities Booster Club. We want to share with you & invite your whole community to an event coming up on Oct. 16th. This date is our Homecoming Football Game & it also is a No School Day. Since there is no school, we wanted to find a way to keep the Homecoming Spirit alive in the students & community. Therefore we decided to have a Creek Carnival Event. If you would please share these fliers with the Blue Mountain Community & let them know all are welcome to join in on the fun.

What time should you arrive at school?

For safety reasons, students in Kindergarten - 5th grade should not arrive at school before 8:50 a.m.  We have staff on duty from 8:50-9:05 to supervise students as they arrive.  When they arrive prior to 8:50, there are no adults there to supervise, which is a safety concern.  When students arrive on campus, they are expected to go immediately to the door where their class lines up and wait for the bell to ring.  (see 5B's matrix for specific expectations)
