School can be wherever you learn.
After the first week of remote learning across our Golden Articulation Schools and Jeffco, our faculty, staff, students and parents have proven that change does not impede their success for learning. Congratulations to everyone for an amazing start! Although it is not certain how long this disruption may last, you have all proven that you can persevere. Enjoy your Spring Break!
"Rise to the top of the world, America
America, don't you cry
Lift me up
Give me strength to press on"
