Student Council to host district-wide talent show

The Greeley-Evans School District 6 Student Council of Representatives is hosting a District-Wide Talent Show on November 17, 2017, at 7pm at Northridge Auditorium. This is a benefit for children in need at Christmas, so there is an entry fee of $5 or new/gently used toys, or wrapping paper.

The Council is auditioning students from every high school in District 6 for the talent show. It is part of their Weld Meld effort to unify all schools in District 6 for a common purpose and goal.

The show will be open to the public. Tickets will be available at the door.

Teachers at Centennial Elementary receive science grant

Congrats to the fourth-grade teachers at Centennial Elementary School, who were recently awarded the "For the Love of Science" Bond Family Grant.

Dr. Dick Bond, former president of the University of Northern Colorado, and family members continue to be involved with District 6 and many of our schools have benefited greatly from their generosity. This grant will allow the teachers to partner with the Science Department at the University of Northern Colorado to purchase much-needed curriculum material and prepare them with lesson plans that will prepare Eagle elementary students for the future.
