Though we’re already at the halfway mark in the school year, the work of the Glenwood Springs Elementary PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is far from done. The GSES PTA has implemented several amazing new programs this year, and they wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our students, parents, teachers and community. Words can never express how much we appreciate their help in making a positive impact on our students.We would like to extend our gratitude to our business sponsors, who have helped us to kick off our Family First monthly discussion series, called All Pro Dad and iMom. Thanks to Young Services, All Kids Dental, Jimmy’s 66 Service, Alpine Bank and US Bank, these events are helping to build a community of support and encouragement for parents and kids alike.We’ve also had some great businesses that have helped provide delicious treats for Kid’s Night Out and other school events: McDonald’s, Russo’s Pizza, Subway and Paradise Bakery.We also had a blast working with the Sopris Elementary Partners in Education and the Glenwood Springs Community Center for the Halloween Extravaganza.And, most of all, thanks so much to all of the countless volunteers and families who support our events. Without you, we are not able to provide the many services, programs and special events for the students of our school. Thank you all for all that you do.Jessica Stott, presidentGlenwood Springs Elementary School PTAGlenwood Springs
On behalf of the fourth-grade teachers and students at Sopris Elementary School in Glenwood Springs, I would like to thank the wonderful staff at Sunlight Mountain Resort for providing us with a day of skiing and snowboarding with free lift tickets, lessons and equipment rentals. For many of our students, this was their first opportunity to get this experience. Thank you for supporting our kids and our community and making it such a fun and safe day.Kathy Whiting, PrincipalSopris Elementary SchoolGlenwood Springs
I want to thank everyone for the kind and generous support they have shown our family as we work through this difficult situation with the town of Silt. Prayers are needed for our family, but please, no more food right now. I have allergies and I cannot eat processed food and a number of other things. Those who feel the need to help, gift cards for necessities are more helpful in meeting our needs.Missy “Burkett” Andersonand the Anderson familySilt
