2021 Book it Bobcats Summer Reading Program


Book It Bobcats, Bill Roberts' annual summer reading program is back for a 5th year! We are so excited to motivate students to read and to raise money for our amazing school. All students can participate and the more you read, the more prizes you can earn! REGISTER YOUR STUDENTS ONLINE HERE. Students in ECE-2nd grade will get a poster to take home next week and all virtual students and students in Grades 3-7 can pick up a poster at the front desk or PRINT THIS ONE. For details and prize information VISIT THE WEBSITE.


At the end of the 2018-2019 school year, extra PTA funds were voted towards a library refresh and teacher lounge. Because of your generosity, the library has a fresh look with new tables, chairs, a projector and movie screen, artwork, more books, an outside community area and landscaping. The staff and teachers also have a space to enjoy lunch. Check out THIS LINK for a peek of how it came together.
 
Thank you to the parents who helped with the library refresh (pre-pandemic) and to our awesome Librarian Cassie Pretlow for bringing it to life! We hope the students, staff and teachers have enjoyed their new spaces.

Stolen Bikes


In the past 3 weeks, two student bikes that were locked on the school perimeter fence were stolen during school hours. Please tell students to lock bikes to the bike racks provided in the front of school and back playground.


Longmont Dairy Milk Caps


Your milk caps are worth money to our school! Give them a rinse before dropping them off in the bin at the front doors until the end of the school year and save them over summer for collection when school starts again in August.


Missing something?


We have quite a collection of jackets, hats, water bottles and more. Please take a look through the bin that will be outside the front doors daily (weather permitting) until the end of the school year. All unclaimed items will be donated on the afternoon of the last day of school.


Yearbooks are in mailboxes now!


The yearbook committee worked hard to produce an amazing memory book of this unprecedented school year - but must address the blurry aerial image of the school on the front pages. Unfortunately the printing of the image at the front of the yearbook was subpar and in NO WAY represents the precise work of Double Down Drones. We urge you to visit THEIR WEBSITE to see the quality of their work!

ATTN: Elementary School Parents


YOU can save our Middle School (MS) students from dying of embarrassment! We will finally have a dance for our MS students but we still need lots of chaperones. Most MS parents try to avoid chaperoning at the request of their students. We would love to start a tradition of having a few elementary parents chaperoning and then we could pass it along when your students are in Middle School. The dance is May 21st at 6:30. PLEASE SIGN UP HERE TO HELP!

School Supplies for Next Year


The classroom supply lists for the 2021-2022 school year are now posted on MySchoolBucks.com. We encourage everyone to purchase this way. MySchoolBucks is also used for lunch credits and some class field trips. You will need to know your students' ID.
 
For any questions, please contact June Jose - june_jose@dpsk12.org

Colorado and Federal tax filing deadlines are May 17, 2021!


Through a recent expansion of the Child Tax Credit (CTC) and Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) under the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, more Colorado families are eligible. Starting in July, families can receive up to $300 a month for every child ages 0-5 and $250 a month for every child ages 6-17 living in their household. Families need to file taxes to receive this cash-back refund, but do not need earnings to qualify. Households making less than $75,000 for individuals and $150,000 for married couples will receive the full credit while those making above those thresholds will receive reduced amounts. 
 
Learn more about the expanded CTC and EITC including how to access free tax help.
