School board recognition month

January is School Board Recognition Month
As citizens who serve children and represent their communities, school board members face complex and demanding challenges. The month of January is designated as School Board Recognition Month in honor of the critical role our schools board members play in serving our students, our communities and our state. All Coloradans should recognize the vital contributions these elected public officials play in the education of our children. They are extraordinary people who voluntarily tackle the enormous job of governing school districts.

While they wear many hats in the workday world, school board members put on a collective hat when they get down to the business of leading their school districts. Board members must pull together as a team toward a common goal – helping students achieve. While they may individually disagree on certain issues, their role as a board is to consistently strive toward that goal.

I hope you’ll take this opportunity to help acknowledge the men and women who make the time to share their leadership and voice about the future of Colorado children. Our list of board members can be found on our district website.
Thank you,
Mike

to everyone

As many are aware by now, a student of ours, freshman, RJ Sandoval passed away late Sunday afternoon in Pueblo. We all are deeply saddened and shocked by this tragedy.
On behalf of the Huerfano RE-1 School District,
I sincerely extend our condolences and deepest sympathy to the Sandoval family as they mourn the death of their son, brother, and relative. May you be able to find strength and healing during this very, very difficult family time.

Any student or adult in the building that may need help processing this tragic event may seek grief counseling at Peakview School or JMHS. Counselors are available.
