9-R 2019/20 Calendar Survey - Parent Feedback

Thank you for taking a moment to share your feedback with us on our 2019/20 Academic Calendar. While that is a little ways away, we are trying to plan out our calendars two years ahead so that staff and families can plan around those calendars accordingly.

1st Grade Empathy Service Project

Park Elementary 1st Graders and their teachers would like to thank all the Park families who contributed nonperishable food items, hats, mittens and socks during their recent Empathy drive that focused on their Habits of Learning trait, “Empathy”, in Crew. All items were donated to Project Merry Christmas.


Lost and Found is OVERFLOWING!! Please stop by the cafeteria and check the Lost and Found corner before Dec. 21st (Thurs.). All items left behind will be donated right before the winter break.

What a Feast it Was!!

Thank you to Lynn Dearey, Kristyn Winn, Lianne Nicholson, Pam Linsenmeyer, Shonda Chumley and Krista Garand for preparing all the amazing food at our recent Thanksgiving feast! We heard that Krista cooked 150 turkeys for all the thanksgiving lunches at our 9-R schools!!!

Thank you also to our servers/volunteers: Marilyn O’Brien, Durango 9R Staff (Andy Burns, Valerie Bareis, Julia Kitchen, Amy Stanton, Lisa Sholten, Julie Popp, Dylan Connell, David McKeever, Jenny Imel, Ginny Hofferber, Jenn Mioni & David Tanaka), Durango Police Dept. (Leonard Martinez, Jim Martindale & Ethan Anderson) and Durango Fire Rescue (Jennifer Keith, Lance Stillwaugh, Dan Imming & Donna Riggert). They served over 850 people!!

Student IDs Reminder

This is a friendly reminder for 9-R families that we are now using Student IDs for all students, all grade levels, for use both on route and activity buses, for City Transit services and for use in our school libraries. Students in the secondary level have IDs that are specific to their school site, while elementary-aged student IDs have the 9-R logo on it as to not designate school site. IDs for elementary students also come with a badge holder and a clip so students can clip the IDs to their bags or other belongings to prevent loss.
