    D50 Insider

    Welcome to this week’s edition of the District 50 Insider.

    They are undefeated, scoring a lot of points and getting a lot of recognition. We have the latest on the Wolves football team and how your vote could help Brandon Dickerson receive a statewide honor.

    “School can’t do it alone.” That was the message from Superintendent Pam Swanson as she held her first meeting of the Westminster Children’s Initiative that is working to give students more support when they are away from the classroom.

    Five Westminster High School graduates are the recipients of Peierls Scholarships. They were back in the District to be recognized and are vowing to help the kids following in their footsteps.

    The District has created a new webpage to answer all your questions about property sales and new development in the community. We hope you will take the time to become informed.

    Do you want to play a bigger role in the decision making process for the District 50? One way is to join the District Accountability Advisory Committee. The Insider will tell you how to apply.

    Speaking of getting involved. Next Tuesday is our community forum to ask questions of the candidates running for the Board of Education. We want your input and questions.

    This week’s Insider Video takes you to the Colorado mountains with students from Scott Carpenter Middle School who are participating in the annual Outdoor Ed program.

    A travel warning! 72nd Avenue will be closed the next two weeks just north of Westminster High School. You will need to plan accordingly.

    We have pictures from the Third Annual Ranum/Westminster Alumni Golf Tournament and will introduce you to two FRED Award winners who play a critical role in educating our children.

    As always we have the D50 TV lineup and our calendar of events.

    Thanks for reading.
