NEW Message from Executive Director of Education

Dear Peak to Peak Families,

Thank you for doing your part to ensure a successful conclusion to the first half of the 2017-18 school year. Please take some time to celebrate your students’ accomplishments, whether they be in the classroom, extracurricular activities, sports, or with college acceptances, all of our students are engaged in a personal educational journey that will set the stage for their futures. We know from our interactions with them on a daily basis that they have bright futures ahead, no matter how different their individual paths may be. The more we celebrate and honor their accomplishments, the more they benefit.

I hope you are able to pause and take stock of all the wonderful qualities that your children have. As a staff at Peak to Peak, we certainly do -- the students inspire and motivate us to do the work we do every day! Thank you for entrusting us with their K-12 education.

I wish you all fun, peace and happiness over the break, as well as some well-deserved rest and relaxation. Take good care of yourselves, your families and your friends, and I will look forward to seeing you in January.

Best wishes,

Kelly Reeser

Executive Director of Education

 

NEW Farewell from Major Gifts Officer Robyn Steuer
 
Dear Peak to Peak Staff, Parents and Students,

I wanted to take a moment to let you know that I am leaving my position as Major Gifts Officer for Friends of Peak to Peak with my last day being Wednesday, January 31st. I have loved my tenure here and my work towards building a strong parent community, fundraising program and the Peak Scholarship Fund. I appreciate having had the opportunity to work with an amazing group of colleagues who are truly committed to the success of each student.

Thank you to the community, current and alumni families, for welcoming me in 2014 and sharing your thoughts on community growth and fundraising. Your continued commitment to give of your time, talent, and treasure will always be your most important gift to our school because it allows our staff to focus on the kids.

Lastly, I truly appreciate the staff and parents who have worked with me to build the Peak Scholarship Fund, the next step in Peak to Peak’s commitment of making sure all of our Pumas are able to pursue their dreams of a college education. Even though I will miss my colleagues, I am looking forward to taking on new challenges and starting a new phase of my career. Please keep in touch. I can be reached at robyn.steuer@gmail.com or on my cell phone at 720-219-4364. I wish you all the best.

Yours truly,
Robyn Steuer
