- Community Schools
We continue to closely monitor wildfire activity around our community in partnership with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office and the Boulder Office of Emergency Management. Firefighters have done an outstanding job closing the spread of the Cal-Wood and Lefthand Canyon Fires, and we are incredibly appreciative of their hard work and dedication to protecting our communities. We must remain vigilant and prepared for any changes to the fire’s activity, particularly with high winds forecasted for this afternoon through Thursday morning. Out of an abundance of caution, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office has requested that we extend our closure of in-person learning at school in Lyons through the end of this week.
Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. Click here to learn more.

Welcome to Kindergarten!
In Kindergarten, we provide a learning environment that accommodates the diverse learning styles and needs of all children. Students will have numerous opportunities to learn in both small group and large group settings. Children will learn how a classroom functions and help build a classroom community that is safe and productive.
One of our primary goals is to teach students to become independent learners and problem solvers. Kindergarteners will learn and/or review letters and sounds and increase their phonics and phonemic awareness skills. During small reading group instruction students will work on word study and comprehension strategies to read independently at a level C at the end of the school year.
In writing, students will use the writing process to write a variety of genres and learn about grammar and mechanics. In math, students will gain number sense, recognize 2D & 3D shapes and add and subtract within the number 5. Our science curriculum encompasses the study of earth science, physical and life science. In social studies, lessons will include the understanding of the past and present, learning about how different cultures live in different places around the world and what characteristics make a good citizen and student.
