Daily Attendance is Essential 

As we start our sixth week of school, the level of instructional time and academic focus has increased. This means daily attendance at school is extremely important.  It is essential that students across all learning models have high levels of daily attendance, unless they are exhibiting symptoms.  We appreciate your continued partnership to support your child’s growth and daily attendance at school. If you are going to be absent, please don’t forget to call Laura in the main office at (970)247-4791.  

Needham Mission & Beliefs  

Last school year, the Needham community rewrote our mission statement and clearly defined our supporting values and beliefs.  Our goal is to educate our students with the skills and mindsets to make a positive impact on the world. We believe the key values of Relationships & Rigor are most critical to success.  You can read our belief statements here.  

Small East Parking Lot Closed Starting Monday

After a review of morning and afternoon security footage, the decision has been made to close the small east parking lot to all vehicles to ensure the safety of students and pedestrians.  There have been a few close calls between students and vehicles.  We believe this is the right preventative decision to keep everyone safe.  For parents using this lot for morning drop off you can either drop students off at the curb, or at the main entrance of the building.  Thank you for working together to keep everyone safe!

Monster Mash Canceled for the Year

Due to current group size, cohort, and visitor limitations, we must cancel our Monster Mash event this year.  It is our hope to host this annual tradition again next October.
