• April 12th - Insider


    Welcome to this week’s edition of the INSIDER!

    Westminster Public School students will get more time in the classroom this spring to make up for days lost because of snow. Two days have been restored to the calendar and the Insider has details.

    Superintendent Pam Swanson is leading the charge to change Colorado’s school finance plan and ensure that students from all backgrounds get equitable treatment. We will tell you about an important meeting she hosted last week in the District.

    When students of the future learn about the horrors and heroics of war, they will have access to a valuable resource created by a unique partnership between Westy High film students and Congressman Ed Perlmutter. We’ll tell you how you can see the documentary “MEDIC!”

    This week’s Insider will introduce you to the two latest FRED award winners.

    It’s called “Celebrate the Beat.” Kids from Skyline Vista Elementary spent three weeks preparing for a high-energy performance that blew everyone away. You will want to see this story.

    This week the Westminster High School Wind Ensemble competes in statewide competition and they are at the top of their game. They received some extra help last week from the music staff at Metro State University.

    If you turn out next week to honor retired horticulture teacher Phil Love at the greenhouse dedication, you can also get a jump on your spring planting. The ceremony is being held in conjunction with the annual plant sale.

    The first ever Westy Idol is looking for talent. We’ll explain.

    Fox News reporter Tammy Vigil has been picked to host the Westminster Public School Foundation’s breakfast at the end of the month. She will team up with former Broncos great Karl Mecklenburg.

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

    Thanks for reading!
