Happenings at East Grand schools

Frank Reeves

A big congratulations to teacher Stephanie Irving, who has been selected by the University of Colorado to receive the Colorado Outstanding Educator Award. This is a great honor and Mrs. Irving definitely deserves this.

Gabe Loberg is MPHS’s recipient of the Colorado Outstanding Student Award. Gabe has shown great academic and extra curricular leadership throughout his school career. Congrats to Gabe Loberg.

Connor Life, a senior at Middle Park High School, earned a place as the 5th chair trumpet in the Colorado All-State Symphonic Band, which was held at the University of Northern Colorado March 28-30. Students participate in three days of rigorous rehearsals culminating in a concert the last evening of the event. This is the third year in a row that Connor has auditioned and been invited to perform with the highly competitive Colorado All-State Bands. After graduation this June he will be attending the University of Denver with scholarships as a trumpet performance major. Congratulations to Mr. Life! His hard work and dedication to music will be greatly missed next year, but we wish him the best of luck as he continues to pursue his passion for music.

Granby Elementary Science received eggs and an incubator this week so that they can hatch chicks.

Granby Elementary also has two baby parakeets in the library.

Yesterday all sophomores attended the 2nd Annual East-West Grand Career Fair in Kremmling. 35 local businesses were represented. Each student visited three to four career paths as well as received information on finding and being successful in the job-hunting world.

PROM is this Saturday at the Snow Mountain Ranch. We have had an outstanding partnership with the YMCA and the use of their facilities and resources have been a huge value to our students. After prom will also be at Snow Mountain. A thank you to the after prom committee for providing a safe place for our students.

Fraser Valley Elementary had an exciting last day before spring break when Dinger the Dinosaur came to visit. Dinger tried to organize a kickball game but did not have the right shoes for the mountains so he spent much of his time on his rear end.

Frank Reeves is the superintendent of East Grand School District.
