    D50 Insider

    Welcome this week’s edition of the D50 Insider!

    With the clock ticking, the Colorado legislature is still at working on some key education issues that could impact every student and teacher in District 50. This week’s Insider brings you up-to-date and shares information about a web site where you can get the latest information.

    The District has received a unique grant to explore the best ways to help young learners, especially those in poverty, come to school prepared to learn. We have details.

    As marijuana advocates took to the streets on 4-20 to support the use of pot, a group of high school students gathered at Westminster High School to send the opposite message. We will tell you what they had to say.

    A major honor for Alice Collins. She has been named English Language Development Director of the Year by the Colorado Department of Education. Congratulations to her!

    A new principal has been selected to lead Tennyson Knolls Elementary. We will tell you about Brian Kosena.

    WHS teacher Karina Costas is profiled in this week’s Insider video. She is one of three Westminster Elks Teachers of the Year.

    This year’s District 50 Art Show and Cultural event was the best ever. If you didn’t visit our Insider slide show will share some of the highlights.

    An opportunity fund has been created in memory of former Board of Education member Bob Landgraf. It will enable students to participate in athletics and activities even when they can’t afford it.

    There are two important events to look forward to. The annual plant sale and District 50 Education Foundation Golf Tournament are coming up.

    As always we have the D50 TV schedule and a complete Calendar of Events.

    Thanks for reading,
