STUDENT-LED SPRING CONFERENCES
Spring conferences will be held on Thursday, March 6, 2014 from 4-8 pm. Please sign up for a 20-minute time slot for you and your child to attend. During this time, you will receive information about your child's progress in each core class as well as have the opportunity to speak with teachers. Students MUST attend these conferences as they are student-led! Having students lead conferences allows teachers to circulate more freely in order to meet with more families; also, it encourages students to take ownership of their own learning. If you cannot signup online, you may call the Morey main office and schedule your conference (720.424.0700). A representative from the Parent Portal team will be on-hand to sign up families for the portal or answer questions on using this important resource.

STUDENT ART SUBMISSIONS FOR HISTORY COLORADO CENTER
This spring an exhibit showcasing the life and legacy of Chester Morey will open at the History Colorado Center. The exhibit will focus on Chester Morey’s life, the mercantile he created, and the school that he founded. The Morey Mercantile produced large quantities of coffee and packaged them in cans under their iconic Solitaire brand. Morey students will display an installation of artistic representations of these coffee cans on the display cases that make up part of the exhibit. Coffee can artistic submissions by students are due by March 7th. What a great opportunity for students to make their art part of history! Please contact Mrs. Menetrier or Mrs. Coupas for details, or go to: moreycoffeecaninstallation.wordpress.com for more information.
