DEDICATED TO EXCELLENCE AND LEARNING
District 49 high school students attended the second annual College and Career Fair on Nov. 16 in Colorado Springs.
Eleventh-grader Grayson Moyer, 16, runs with the Wolves football team ahead of a homecoming football game Oct. 7 at Vista Ridge High School in District 49. For the third consecutive year, Grayson was selected as the Wolves’ “12th player” due to his contagious pride.
More than 300 Vista Ridge High School graduates received diplomas May 28 during a commencement ceremony at The Broadmoor World Arena in Colorado Springs.
Caleb Gilbert, VRHS eleventh-grader, is legally blind, but that doesn’t stop him from pursuing his passions. “You just have to go for it,” he said. So in his junior year, Gilbert decided to compete in track and field.
“We learned how to push ourselves to make stuff and learn how to use the resources at hand,” said Isaac Fraire, an eleventh-grader who served as a programmer for the team. Isaac explained that this isn’t like a traditional class, “there isn’t one figure, one person who we could always go to and ask for help.”
"A leader doesn't have to be perfect," said Sophia Mayhugh, seventh grade at Springs Studio for Academic Excellence when asked what she learned at the annual District 49 Middle School Leadership Conference at Sand Creek High School April 15. "A leader makes mistakes, but always tries to do the next right thing."
