On June 4, a seven-foot crabapple tree was planted at Sopris Elementary as a gift to the future students of SES in hopes that as their educational aspirations grow so will this tree to shade them in their learning. We would like to thank everyone that played a role in this effort. From fundraising, to shoveling dirt, we couldn’t have done it without the following: the fifth-graders and their families who donated money; the Cannellas and Russo’s Pizza for the Family Pizza Night Fundraiser; the Macaulays for finding the perfect tree; the Stepniewskis, who made the tree planting a success; the Hagans, Mazzottas, Urens and Dixons for helping plant the tree; and Planted Earth for delivering the tree. SES has played a vital role in so exceptionally molding and educating all of our children, and we wish the best to the future students at SES.Thank You!

I performed in an amazing event last night. And it was absolutely free. I heard poetry, comedy, vocalists, pianists, guitarists and even a heavy metal rock band.I saw gymnastics and Taekwondo performances. All were outstanding. It was the Talent Show at the Glenwood Springs Library for local teens and tweens, an absolutely wonderful gathering of local youth and community members who love to support youth energy. Many, many thanks to the all staff of the Glenwood Springs Library for supporting our teens and tweens through reading programs, teen and tween advisory groups and really fun events such as the Talent Show. I think that I can speak for everyone when I say “Pam Rules!” and to especially thank Pam Robinson, who is very nice and puts a lot of effort into our teen and tween community. She has made the library a more fun place for everyone.Sincerely,Olivia DixonGlenwood Springs
