Dear Soaring Heights Families, 

Thank you for your continued dedication to our students' success this year.  Our classrooms are filled with excitement and energy as students are working on strength of character campaigns.  Our middle school students are focusing on perseverance and goals. Next month, our students will be focusing on self-awareness.

Our Robotics Teams continue to demonstrate excellence and ingenuity in their designs and skills at their competitions. Our Middle School Vex IQ teams played at Berthoud High School last weekend and received six of the seven awards including the excellence award, teamwork champions, design award, skills champion and skills 2nd place. Our Middle School VEX EDR competed at Trail Ridge and received the excellence award. In addition, Cyber Patriots are currently in the 10 top teams for the state of Colorado. 

Our girls basketball will wrap up their season this weekend. We are proud of the growth and success of the boys' and girls' basketball teams this year. The girls basketball team will play their final games at Soaring Heights on Saturday, January 29 at 10 am and 11 am. Wrestling registration opened on Monday, January 24 and the season will begin on Monday, January 31. 

Please save the date:  Parent Teacher Conferences are February 8, 9, and 10.  Conferences will be virtual only.   You will receive a link to sign up on Monday, January 31. 

As always please remember with inclement weather to check our website or the district website for both delayed start schedules and/or virtual learning schedules. Please send your students to school with appropriate outerwear for cold days and for our younger students, please label coats, hats, and gloves. Please encourage your students to bring a water bottle to school every day.

A friendly reminder that during the morning and afternoon drop off times, please turn right only onto County Road 5. This helps to keep our students and staff safe while allowing the traffic to flow smoothly. 

We want to acknowledge our parent support and community, specifically our PTO. Our PTO has written grants for thousands of dollars to support our classrooms, teachers, students, and facilities. They continuously support staff with lunches, treats and community outreach to business partners. We are indeed grateful for their time, energy and thought.

Have a wonderful weekend and please reach out with any questions.

Meghan Quirk, Assistant Principal

Parent Teacher Conferences will take place on February 8, 9, 10 online only.  You will receive an email on Monday, January 31, with instructions to sign up for virtual conferences.   If you need any assistance, please call the office.

Hello Soaring Heights Families! 

Starting next week, for the month of February, your child (K-5th grade) has the option to participate in the 5210+ challenge sponsored by the Healthy Kids Club of UC Health.  Student calendars were sent home this week.   This is an optional activity where your child can earn a t-shirt for their participation (80 checks) and possible prize money to put towards wellness initiatives for our school.   Once your child has completed the calendar at the end of the month, there is a link at the bottom of the calendar where you check in your child's participation.   If you didn't see the green calendar come in your child's folder this week, I've included the links where you can access the calendar and print off at home.
