Autumn is in the air

Happy fall, from Ignacio Elementary School! We are grateful for this wonderful weather and the opportunity it brings for some “cooler” fun at recess. So many activities have taken place since the start of school, and we have many more to enjoy just around the corner.

Very soon, we’ll be inviting families to attend our first Bobcat Assembly to recognize our Bobcats and the great things they are doing. Our Rise-and-Shine Committee is also working on our 1st morning assembly for students and families, so stay tuned for more information. Also, mark your calendars for Oct. 14, as our second-grade students will be singing the National Anthem at our High School Football game. Oct. 31 will be here before we know it, and our PTO is working overtime to bring the trick-or-treating fun back to town for our kiddos – more information will be headed your way for this too! Whew, we’ve got a ton going on…

It really does feel like we have a lot to celebrate, especially with the growth our students showed for our 21-22 CMAS scores. Over the past five years, our building has undergone continuous improvement: the elementary building is now off of performance watch status! Our staff and students proved that through hard work and commitment, we can overcome hardships and achieve great things. I could not ask for a better group of Bobcats; time and time again, our staff comes together in a positive and impactful way to meet the needs of our kids and it shows in so many ways.

We’d like to give a special thanks to our community partners that are engaging our students in fun learning experiences during activity Fridays; Boys and Girls Club of the Southern Ute Indian Tribe, Dancing Spirit Community Arts Center, Ignacio Public Library and Powerhouse Science Museum – we give you many thanks for your continued support. Also, we want to show our continued gratitude to those that make it all come together for the kids; our coordinators, Angela Ballew and Cindy Valdez, our Transportation and Nutrition departments, and the many staff members that come together to make our program a success.
