Telluride Schools Prepare for 14-15 Early Release Tuesdays
new curriculum, new state learning standards, and the goal to increase
the rigor to ensure that all students are appropriately challenged, the
Telluride School District will pilot a 1-year early release for all
students during the upcoming school year in order to provide time for
teachers from across grade levels to work together. Except during the
weeks of December 15 through February 2 (Ski PE Weeks), students will be
dismissed on Tuesday at 1:50pm from TES and 1:55pm from TIS and TMHS.
Buses will run their routes shortly after school is out. Both the
school and the area non-profits are finalizing plans for opportunities
for students on these days AhHaa, Telluride Academy, Pinhead and others
met to work on designing various priced programs for students on these
Tuesday. In addition, the school will offer a $5 afterschool activity
to replace the former PEP program. Punchcards will be available for
purchase in the fall for the School Program. Please check your schools
back to school letter for more information. These letters will be
mailed in early August. In addition, area non-profit activities will be
posted on the website through the "Green Folders" icon.

Parent Portal for 2014-2015 School Year
If you created a log in for the Infinite Campus Parent Portal last year, nothing has changed. The direct link is under the Parents and Students link above.
If you have never used the Parent Portal to view your students' attendance and grades, contact Tava or your building admin assistant for instructions.
You do not need a login for our new website; teacher pages with assignments and class information are open to view. Look under Staff Directory under the appropriate school to find your child's teacher.
On Tuesday, March 25th, author Jeffrey Bennett visited the Telluride Elementary School and the Telluride Intermediate School. Dr. Bennett is an astronomer, teacher and writer. He has written several children's books including "Max Goes to the Moon", "Max goes to Mars", and "Max Goes to Jupiter". The students really enjoyed listening to Dr. Bennett talk about Max (who really was his dog) as well as learning tons of interesting facts about space. Jeffrey has also written books for adults on the theory of relativity and mathematics. His presentation at the Wilkinson Public Library was on his book, "What is Relativity?", which was quite interesting and thought provoking. A big thank you goes out to We-R1 and the Wilkinson Public library for facilitating this exciting event!
In Memory of Mark Buchsieb
TES has dedicated one of the trophy cases
near the school gym to Mark Buchsieb, our faithful crossing guard who passed away this month.
We miss his daily presence keeping TES kids safe as they arrived at school each morning.
These happy kids received Miner Medals for respectful behavior.
