We continue to closely monitor wildfire activity around our community in partnership with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office and the Boulder Office of Emergency Management. Firefighters have done an outstanding job closing the spread of the Cal-Wood and Lefthand Canyon Fires, and we are incredibly appreciative of their hard work and dedication to protecting our communities. We must remain vigilant and prepared for any changes to the fire’s activity, particularly with high winds forecasted for this afternoon through Thursday morning. Out of an abundance of caution, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office has requested that we extend our closure of in-person learning at school in Lyons through the end of this week.
Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. Click here to learn more.

Art Room Update
Fall has arrived! Artists have been busy in the art room creating incredible works of art.
Kindergarten- Lines: artists have been studying line in art and are transitioning into how artists use lines to create shapes.
1st grade- Leaf Study: artists are finishing their study of flowers and are beginning to study line, texture, and shape.
2nd grade- Special Place Paper Quilt Block: artists are completing their self-portraits and will soon begin creating special place paper quilt art, with a focus on the art of Faith Ringgold.
3rd grade- Vase with Flowers: artists observed and critiqued Vincent Van Gogh’s sunflower paintings that he created for his friend and roommate, Paul Gauguin. Artists then created an oil pastel drawing of a vase with flowers to show depth through the use of shading and the inclusion of a background.
4th grade- Landscape: artists studied how to create the illusion of depth on a two-dimensional surface through the use of size and overlap. They set out to create a landscape that demonstrates the understanding depth in a work of art.
5th grade- Observation Drawing: artists are finishing up observation drawings and are beginning to study mobiles and the art of Alexander Calder.
