We may take different paths, but in the end all you need is a plan, a road map, and the courage to press on to your destination.

Last week, 27J Schools held winter graduation ceremonies for two Brighton High School, SD27J graduates and 44 graduates of Innovations & Options Academies (Bolt, Bridge, Heritage Academy and the Transitional Learning Center).

Congratulations to all 2018 winter graduates for your dedication and perseverance, thank you to the families for your support and encouragement, and thank you to the educators and support staff who help to guide students along the path to success.

This week marked another first for 27J Schools and Brighton High School, SD27J: the offering of dental services in school!

Brighton High’s school-based health center–a resource made possible through our collaboration with Kids First Health Care, Salud Family Health Centers, and Community Reach Center–will now offer students preventive dental services once a week, provided by Salud.

“For those of us in the dental field, we know that for high schoolers, oral health isn’t always at the top of the priority list,” said Ethan Kerns, DDS, Salud’s Chief Dental Officer. “We know that performance in school does falter when they’re having dental pain. If we can come to the school, make the kids more comfortable, reduce barriers to parents taking time off of work and students missing school, and help their performance, it’s really a win for everybody.”

We are #27JProud to report that in 2018, all five of our high schools saw an increase in graduation rates and, overall, outperformed the state average!

The Colorado Department of Education recently announced that state-wide the four-year graduation rate increased from 79 to 80.7 percent for the class of 2018. Here in 27J we saw our rate increase from 77.4 to 81.5 percent in 2018 (4.1 percent growth)!

“I could not be more proud of the progress we continue to make in our graduation rates year over year,” said 27J Schools Superintendent Dr. Chris Fiedler.

“There is still much work to be done to ensure that all students earn a diploma and demonstrate that they have the skills and knowledge to prepare them for future success. However, we certainly want to acknowledge and celebrate the Class of 2018, their families, and the dedicated and talented adults that were a part of their educational journey in 27J Schools, as we continue to work towards being the schools and school district that our community can believe in most!”

Students at North Elementary were sporting their orange and blue yesterday to welcome a special guest: Miles the Mascot!

The Denver Broncos and Miles visited North Elementary because of the school’s participation in the Fuel Up to Play 60 school-wellness program, with support from Dairy MAX. At North, the program is headed up by their own Miles, Physical Education teacher Miles Higginbotham.

Miles the Mascot had students and teachers cheering for the Denver Broncos, dancing to songs about making healthy food choices and talking by video to Broncos players and cheerleaders.

Thanks for stopping by, Miles the Mascot, come back anytime!

Fuel Up to Play 60 encourages students, with support from educators, to improve the health and wellness environments of their school. Since its launch in 2009, more than 1,500 Colorado schools have joined in to create healthy changes in their schools and communities.
