Yampa Valley Opera Troupe Comes to Parkview
The Yampa Valley Opera Troupe, out of Steamboat Springs, came to Parkview Elementary School last Thursday, September 24th to perform for the entire school. The six-member troupe (plus one) performed an abbreviated and contemporary wild west operatic version of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears.” The traveling troupe consists of high school students from Steamboat Springs and Craig, Colorado, as well as a few adults who produce, direct, and perform in the opera. The plus one cast member was Caleb Wiley, a Parkview second grader, recruited last minute by the director to play Baby Bear. Parkview Elementary students, faculty, and a few parents in attendance enjoyed the opera immensely. They especially enjoyed the songs, the comedy and watching their classmate, Caleb, ham it up.

Fighting for our Kids!
During last year’s legislative session, our community voices’ were critical in convincing lawmakers to begin restoring a small portion of the funding that has been cut from our schools. The Board of Education continues to fight for our kids and joins with other boards throughout the state in adopting the attached resolution urging the State Legislature to honor the intent and language of Amendment 23 by prioritizing the reduction of the Negative Factor and to leave decisions regarding how those funds are spent to locally elected school boards.
New Dance Dress Code
The Board of Education has provided clarification on what is appropriate attire for dances. This relaxes portions of the school dress code policy for dances and provides guidance for students. As always, the Principal has the final say at the dance.
