We have so much to be thankful for in BVSD

As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, I wanted to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude to everyone in the Boulder Valley School District.

Our People are Our Strength: Staff Profile Emily Gaud

Emily Gaud, a Special Aide Para,  is a crucial part of Halcyon School, one of the Special Education Programs in the Boulder Valley School District. This unique school serves students from 1st to 12th grade who are referred through a district and Individualized Education Program (IEP) process, primarily dealing with serious emotional disabilities or requiring mental health support. Gaud’s role as at Halcyon exemplifies her belief that “no student is beyond help; sometimes it takes more effort, but every kid is worth our time.”

Leadership Profile: Director of enrollment leads yet another technological transformation for BVSD, as Open Enrollment gets underway

After 16 years as Boulder Valley School District’s director of enrollment, it's hard to imagine Mike Wilcox in any other job. It was a long and winding path to the position he has today, which facilitates all of the district’s enrollment processes, from students that are registering in their neighborhood school or the many that choose to apply for the lottery for the chance to move to another school in the district.

Hispanic Heritage Month at AMS

As you’re already these past few weeks we have been celebrating Hispanic Heritage month across the US. This is an opportunity to celebrate the contributions and significant impact that latinos and latinas have had on our country. Hispanic heritage month began in the middle of September which aligns with the Independence Day celebrations of many Spanish speaking countries and ends in the middle of October. 

As October comes to an end and we welcome November we also have a significant celebration of life that is celebrated throughout the US and some parts of Latin america. The celebration is called “Dia de los Muertos.” We want to take some time to share how our students are engaging in multicultural activities and learning about diverse spanish-speaking cultures.
