Our Wellness Ambassadors to Voice and Empower (WAVE) team went to the Roundhouse for Governor Michelle Lujan-Grisham's press conference yesterday! The students advocated for two of the bills, including HB 9 which requires the safe storage of firearms to protect minors and a 14-day waiting period to purchase guns and accessories. They also got to meet Attorney General Raul Torrez and the House Minority Leader Ryan Lane! We want to thank Miranda Viscoli from New Mexicans to Prevent Gun Violence, Christopher Allers our district WAVE coordinator, and the Office of Student Wellness for providing this opportunity for our WAVE team!

Friday's are always a blast at El Dorado Community School! Two 3rd grade student used their SPIN Bucks that they've earned to purchase "Become Principal for the Day"! They received a To-Do List and Appointments they had to attend, and visited classes and wrote notes about what they saw! There is also an interactive mural in the front foyer now for people to take pictures in front of! The "I Aspire-Angel Wings" project, put together by Ms. Roni Rohr and Ms. Lori Goetz, had students brainstorm and collaborate to create a feather that would go on the mural to create the wings!

Out of an abundance of caution due to snow packed and icy conditions throughout the district, all schools will be on a 2-hour delay today, January 18th, 2023, to provide additional time for buses to safely transport students to schools. This means that buses will run 2 hours later than during normal times. If you drop your child off at school, please remember that staff will also be on a two-hour delay. Full day Pre-K programs are also on a two hour delay. Morning Pre-K programs have been canceled. Afternoon Pre-K programs will operate on a regular schedule.
Hello families, The district does not release early due to inclement weather. This is to ensure that children are not inadvertently released to an unsupervised home. If you have concerns regarding your child's safety, you can pick up your child at any time, otherwise school and buses will run on their regular schedule. Should any changes to bus services be necessary, additional communication will be forwarded to you. For information on afterschool activities, please contact your students’ school.
