NEW Board Service at Peak to Peak

 

Dear Peak to Peak Community, 

The board’s election committee has announced its request for board of directors candidates for the election this May. See details in the below Request for Candidates article.  Energized by the work we’ve undertaken this year and the opportunities ahead, the board would like to highlight a few items for your consideration:

  • Streamlined board schedule: The board has decreased its meeting schedule to one meeting per month for many months of the school year. In addition to streamlining our governance work, we hope this also helps attract a broad pool of candidates including those who may have less flexible professional or personal schedules.
  • Get informed: If you are curious about running for the board now or in the future, we encourage you to attend one of the candidate information sessions at 5 p.m. 2/25 or 8:30 a.m. 2/26 in the Think Tank conference room. Furthermore, feel free to email the board at p2pboard@googlegroups.com or chat with a board member to learn more about current board work. Board members are a great resource for identifying ways to get more involved at school through volunteerism or serving on committees.
  • Many ways to link in: In this week’s board meeting, we discussed that there are many ways to participate as a leader in our community. For instance, the board is working on identifying opportunities for mentorships, internships, and partnerships that will benefit student growth and experience K-12. If you know of opportunities or have professional expertise that you feel would lend itself to this work, we’d love to hear from you. p2pboard@googlegroups.com 

Wishing you a wonderful weekend,

Peak to Peak Board of Directors 

 

NEW Innovation Summit Summary
 
Dear Peak to Peak Families,
 
As an outgrowth of the Strategic Plan, and the feedback received from the Listening Campaign conducted during the fall of 2018, Peak to Peak hosted its first Innovation Summit on February 13, 2019. Participants included more than 70 members of Peak to Peak's community as well as local businesses, government officials, K-12 school leaders, and representatives from colleges and universities. The goal of the Innovation Summit was to identify possible collaborative partnerships for our school that could lead to forward-thinking opportunities for our students.  Please see the summary of takeaways and themes from this exciting event HERE, and let me know if you have any questions or feedback about the topics that were addressed. As you will see when reviewing the summary, this is an exciting time to be part of the Peak to Peak community!

Sincerely,

Kelly Reeser

Executive Director of Education 

 

NEW K-12 Safety Update

Dear K-12 Families,

On Friday, March 8th, during the afternoon early release between 1:30-3:00 PM, our front office and executive leadership teams will be running a mock scenario and drill in the cafeteria, northeast and northwest gymnasiums to run an on-site evacuation and reunification plan. Plans like these are needed in case we experience an emergency, outage or other urgent need to move students and staff from one part of campus to a “sheltered” location on another side of the school. Events like these are only in the case of emergencies and include moving all parties, room by room, floor by floor and building by building, to parts of campus where we can get them safely and efficiently off site, or home, for the day/duration of the emergency.

Please know this is only a drill, and we will not be announcing anything over the intercom or mimicking a live scenario. Furthermore, won’t be interrupting any school level plans for the teaching staff or related activities on campus that day, nor will we be involving students who have not already been invited to attend with family members. Rather, in addition to local law enforcement officers, we have already enlisted a host of volunteer families and their students to participate, walk through the evacuation and reunification steps, and offer insights to better guide our procedures for future use.  If you would like to volunteer to participate in this drill please contact Traci Schoeneweis at traci.schoeneweis@bvsd.org.

Important for you to know is...please click K-12 Safety Update to read the entire article.

NEW Blood Drive
 
NHS is hosting their spring Blood Drive this Monday, February 25th! Normally, the donation slots fill up with Peak to Peak students and staff, but this year, we are short and seeking folks in the greater community who would be available and willing to donate!  It is crucial for hospitals and clinics to have a constant supply of blood to treat their patients, so it would be amazing if you would consider taking some time out of your day to help save a life by donating blood. Below are the requirements for those who plan on donating. 
 
REQUIREMENTS TO DONATE BLOOD:
- Must be at least 18 years old, or 16 years old with parental approval (***go to this link for parental approval form >>> Parental Approval Form)
- Must be at least 110 pounds
- Have proof of identification at the time of donation (ex. work badge, school ID, drivers license, credit card, etc)
- Make sure to hydrate well 24-48 hours prior to donating and eat at least two hours before!
 
Notes:
  • Bonfils is now Vitalant and has changed their policy regarding tattoos. It is OK to donate if you got a tattoo within the last 12 months and the tattoo was done in a state-regulated, professional shop.
  • The blood drive will take place in a Blood Mobile
  • 67% of the blood you donate will go to patients with anaemia, cancer and blood disorders; 27% will be utilized in surgeries and emergency situations; 6% will go to moms who experience blood loss during child birth.. so please donate because it saves millions of lives every single year!!!!
  • Last blood drive we saved 63 lives (which is awesome!!!), so please sign up again if you donated last semester and encourage others to donate as well so we can collect more units of blood this time 
Contact the below individuals directly to sign up and set up a specific time to donate: Kelly Song at ksong01@bvsd.org , or Amelia Schantz at  abschantz01@bvsd.org . If you have any additional questions regarding requirements or donating in general, feel free to email these students or go to the Vitalant website at https://www.vitalant.org/Home.aspx#

NEW Registration Information for Current 8th-11th Graders and Families

As you know, course registration for the next school year is underway and teachers have been in discussions with students whom they teach and recommending them for 19-20 academic core courses. This year, students have a hard copy registration form that they are taking around to all of their teachers who will sign the student’s card for the appropriate course. All students will be choosing their student-selected (elective) courses in classroom lessons taught by counselors.

Please plan to sit down with your student(s) and their two-sided registration card this weekend. The reverse side has a section for parents/guardians to complete and sign. Again, students should not attempt to select courses on their own, as they will be selecting them with counselors via a lesson to ensure accuracy.

Registration Card Return and Student-selected Course Schedule:

  • Current 8th grade: Cards will be distributed next week and will be collected on Monday, March 4 in History classes
  • 9th grade: Will be collected on Monday, February 25 in History
  • 10th grade: Will be collected on Monday, February 25 in English classes
  • 11th grade: Will be collected on Tuesday, February 26 or Wednesday, February 27 in CRS

Student-selected course selection applies ONLY to 2019-2020 high school students (not current 6th and 7th grade students).  

 Current 10th and 11th graders will choose an off-campus option--either period 1 (late start) or period 8 (early release), and these can vary by semester. Current 8th and 9th graders will need to choose enough student-selected courses to ensure a full 8-period schedule can be built. We encourage all 9th graders to have a study hall both semesters.

 As a reminder, all HS students need the following courses to graduate and each student is responsible for making sure they meet these requirements:

  • 1 semester health class (5 credits to be taken in 10th grade)
  • 1 semester tech class--must be a tech class for rising 9th  and 10th graders (or digital art for 11th-12th) (5 credits)
  • 2 semesters PE, one of which needs to be an actual PE class, normally taken in 9th grade (10 credits)
  • 4 semesters of visual and performing arts (20 credits)
  • 2nd semester Junior year CRS class with a required study hall (along with Sr. year CRS = 5 credits)
  • 100 hours community service

 A few notes:  Students may choose to take student aide for community service up to 50 hours (2 semesters); however, we strongly discourage 9th graders from electing student aide. We would much rather they complete an art course, a tech course, and a PE course.  While selecting their courses, students will verify that their core courses are correct and write their courses down so that they can plan for Summer Reading and summer assignments.  Students will be able to see their final schedules in early August.  Below is our HS Academic Planning Guide for your convenience:

Secondary Parents and Guardians: Please Provide Your Feedback About New Schedule

As you know, this year Peak to Peak shifted its secondary schedule to include eight periods on Mondays, with alternating block days from Tuesday through Friday. In keeping with Peak to Peak's strategic priorities of making the most effective use of time possible and continually improving our programs, the rationale for making this shift was to provide more elective options for students and more flexibility during the regular school day. Another goal was to create more collaboration time for teachers. Earlier this year, we asked you to share your impressions of the new schedule, and we are repeating this survey now to find out if those impressions have changed. Please help us evaluate the first semester by providing your feedback in THIS SURVEY.   Thank you!

Fingerprinting Process
 
You can no longer get your fingerprints done at the police station in Colorado. Colorado has decided to use a third party vendor to handle all of its background needs.  Going forward to become a volunteer at Peak to Peak you will need to get the paperwork from our front office which will walk you through the steps of how to get your fingerprints done. Each volunteer will receive a unique code that will pay for your fingerprints so it will no longer be an out of pocket cost to you.  If you have any questions about the process please feel free to email harrisonnicole@me.com
 
 
Volunteer Sign-in Process
 
We are super excited about our new badges for volunteers.  If you have had a background check and have been approved you will receive an email to come in and get your new badge with a picture and scanning capability. if you have your new badge we will no longer need you to sign in on the paper sheet at the attendance window. Show the office your badge and once through the locked doors in the south lobby follow the instructions below to scan into the computer.  The instructions will also be printed at the computer for your convenience. This is going to help make our school safer, more efficient, and hopefully make coming and going easier for you.
 
1. Use barcode on the back of your badge to scan in using the scanner.
2. Choose either An Activity or A Classroom
3. Select the classroom or the activity.
4. Before you leave the building after volunteering scan out so we know you have left the building. 
 
 
Volunteer Facebook Page
 
We have a new Facebook page for volunteers. We will be posting the weekly update of what is coming up and last minute volunteer needs. Please subscribe to help make the page a successful tool. We will not over post to ensure we protect your time and social media barrage of information:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/1594466300665141/

We will continue to request fingerprints from anyone who intends to volunteer more than once during the school year.  If you had your fingerprints done previously and completed all three volunteer forms then you do not need to complete any volunteer paperwork this year!  Please contact Traci Schoeneweis at traci.schoeneweis@bvsd.org or 303-453-4682 to verify your volunteer status if you are unsure.  If you only intend to volunteer once then you will be required to do the background check (not fingerprints) and the three volunteer forms each year.  Please follow this link to print them or pick them up at registration:  Volunteer Information

Volunteer training is online.  Anyone that is new to the school needs to view this before volunteering.  If you have previously attended or taken the volunteer training you do not need to do it again.  It’s a good idea for returning volunteers to view this as well.  Follow this link Volunteer Training to view the information.  It can also be found on the volunteer page of the school website.

 

Your Volunteer Team would love to hear from you. If you have any interest in volunteering for anything at all but do not know where to start please email one of the people below.  We would love to meet you.
