Strawberry Park Elementary School Celebrated as a Finalist for Excellence in STEM Education Award
PRESS RELEASE

(October 4, 2017) – Strawberry Park Elementary School was celebrated as a finalist for The Succeeds Prize for Transformational Impact in an Elementary School for Excellence in STEM Education at an awards ceremony on Tuesday. The Succeeds Prize, the state’s most prestigious awards and recognition event, honors the transformational impact of Colorado’s public schools and educators. Strawberry Park was awarded a $5,000 cash prize for being a finalist and teacher, Katie Weeks, received $1,000 for Educational Leadership.

“As a finalist for this award, Strawberry Park was recognized for the high-quality learning experiences it offers,” said Brad Meeks, Superintendent of Steamboat Springs School District. “As a school district, we strive to set the standard for education regionally, nationally, and globally. This prestigious recognition of Strawberry Parks’ approach to STEM education is helping us do just that.”  

The Succeeds Prize is a collaborative effort between 9NEWS and Colorado Succeeds, a non-partisan business coalition focused on education issues. The Succeeds Prize finalists were selected by a prestigious group of education, government, and business leaders.

“As a finalist for The Succeeds Prize, we became part of a community made up of the best STEM programs in the state,” said Strawberry Park Elementary School Principal, Tracy Stoddard. “We will continue growing and advancing our great STEM program by tapping into the wonderful expertise of our fellow Succeeds Prize finalists.”

As part of The Succeeds Prize, Strawberry Park’s successful STEM practices and techniques will be shared with educators statewide to positively impact Colorado’s nearly 900,000 public school students.

To Schedule Parent/Teacher Conferences:

SPE will be using the online program called Pick A Time to schedule parent teacher conferences. This program allows you to schedule your own appointments at any time that it is convenient for you. Once you login you will be able to view available appointments for all of your student’s teachers, and if you have more than one student in the district, you can view multiple students’ schedules.

Following are step by step instructions:
Register (new users)
Enter your email address and push “login/Create Account”
Fill in the required fields and register
For each child, enter a student ID (the ID is full first name + last name: ex. BenjaminFranklin) note there is no space between first and last name
The Security Value for your student is his/her birthdate entered in the following format: example, 12/31/97
Sign-in (If you have previously registered) Enter your email and password. The system will remember your children and appointments you have made previously. If you have forgotten your password, select FORGOT MY PASSWORD.
Scheduling
Each colored square represents an available 30 minute meeting time (the two 5th grade teams of Mrs. Adams and Ms. Maddox and Miss. Hoza and Mrs. Haubert are 15 minutes each). Please note that the Specials Teachers are included for appointments. The legend shows you which teacher corresponds to which color, and the times increase as you go down the page. You will only see appointments for teachers that your children have classes with. Click on the square that corresponds with the time and teacher you wish to meet. Note that there are two columns for conferences, the first column is for Wednesday with most conferences beginning at 3:30pm, and the second column is for Thursday with most conferences beginning at 8:00am. Squares that are white represent appointment times that are not available.
Once you have selected a square to book a time, you will have the choice of setting a time when you would like a reminder email delivered.
Click “Create Appointment”.
Repeat this process until you have a time with each teacher you wish to visit with. At any time you can select “printable schedule” and print the resulting web page to get a hard copy of your schedule. You will also have the option to email your schedule to yourself. If you want to make changes to your schedule, you can log in at any time with the email address and password you used to create your account. Please note that changes/additions cannot be made within 12 hours of the appointment time. Click on “Your Schedule” to display and hide your appointments. There will be links to change the time, or cancel the appointment.

PLEASE NOTE:
If you would like to make an appointment with a teacher that your child does not have a class with, you will need to contact that teacher directly.

SPE Mission/Vision

about 1 year ago

A mission statement describes in simple terms, but with carefully chosen, powerful words, the purpose of an organization. It can also describe what the organization intends to accomplish. Strawberry Park Elementary’s new adopted mission is Engaged Learners, Demonstrating Character. To support students in fulfilling the mission, teachers will focus on different character traits each trimester. 

During 2nd trimester, we will explore and learn about honesty. Honest people are trustworthy, dependable, and respected by others. An honest person tells the truth, regardless of the consequences. As America's first President, George Washington said in his Farewell Address, "honesty is always the best policy."



A message from Superintendent Brad Meeks - Steamboat Springs School District
On July 18, the Steamboat Springs School District Board of Education directed the school district administration to proceed with pursuing a 7-year $12.9 million bond to fund three critical infrastructure projects and an ongoing mill levy with a set mill levy amount that will generate $1 million in the first fiscal year. The ongoing mill levy will create a permanent source of funds for capital renewal needs of the district. Steamboat Springs School District voters will have a chance to consider these projects in November.

If funded, the bond will address necessary roof replacements in five facilities as well as the installation of a comprehensive heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system in Steamboat Springs Middle School. Investments will also be made to restore Gardner Field to a state-of-the-art “classroom” as well as a central gathering point in our community. The ongoing mill levy funding would allow us to promptly address maintenance projects, particularly those that affect health, safety, and equitable environments for students and staff.

For more than a year, the Community Committee for Education (CC4E) has brought the community together, raised awareness of the issues and challenges faced by the school district, and prompted meaningful discussion. While many thoughtful solutions have been raised, the decision to pursue these specific projects and ongoing funding was driven by four core values: safety, student success, transparency, and longevity.

If funded, these investments compared to last year’s school tax based on $500,000 of market value, will increase residential property owners taxes an estimated additional $3.25 a month / $39 a year per $500,000 market value of residential property; and for $500,000 of market value of a commercial property an estimated additional $36 a month / $434 a year.

In the coming weeks and months, you will be able to access factual information about the bond and mill levy issues on our website.
November 7, 2017 Ballot Measures - Bond & Mill Levy
At Monday night's school board meeting, the Steamboat Springs School District Board of Education unanimously approved the ballot language regarding the $12.9 million bond projects and a mill levy that will generate $1 million in the first fiscal year dedicated to ongoing capital renewal needs of the district. Steamboat Springs School District voters will have a chance to consider these projects in November.

If funded, the bond will address necessary roof replacements in five facilities as well as the installation of a comprehensive heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system in Steamboat Springs Middle School. Investments will also be made to restore Gardner Field for continued use as a classroom as well as a central gathering point in our community. The ongoing mill levy funding would allow the district to address maintenance projects.

If funded, these investments compared to last year’s school tax based on $500,000 of market value, will increase residential property owners taxes an estimated additional $3.25 a month/$39 a year per $500,000 market value of residential property; and for $500,000 of market value of a commercial property an estimated additional $36 a month/$434 a year.

These initial projects are considered Phase I. Later this fall, the district will begin to assemble various sub-committees to address future needs of the district. These sub-committees will address program improvements and enrollment growth under Phases II & III to develop longer term solutions for our facilities.

Since the board took action on the ballot language on August 28, 2017, the requirements of the Fair Campaign Practices Act (FCPA) are now in place.
