Congratulations to recently retired teacher Kathy Kopp who was just awarded SHAPE Colorado Health Teacher of the Year!
MPHS Assistant Principal Cindy Rimmer was also recognized for her outstanding contribution towards Coloradans living active and healthy lifestyles.
The Crew Program would like to thank local artist Susanna Nichols for her time and generosity in teaching the students techniques for watercolor painting. Susanna led students in painting animal eyes. She gave students tips and tricks for creating texture, shading, and emotion. The results are awesome and we’re enjoying the new artwork around our classroom. This week and next week we’re working with Nicole Robinson at the Therapeutic Riding Center on YMCA property. We’ll be helping her winterize the property while we learn horsemanship and adaptive riding techniques so that students can serve as volunteers next summer.
We’d also like to thank Rob and Karen Munro at Mountain Beast for their time and effort in training the Crew in MMA. We’re training there, similarly to local law enforcement, to learn self-defense and regulation techniques. Rob and his Crew do a great job with our students and we’re excited to partner with them!
The MPHS boys soccer team completed season with most wins since 2009. Every year they keep improving. Good job team.
