Middle and High School Expo planned for Nov. 6
For a one-stop-shop on information about District 6 middle and high schools, parents and students should mark their calendars for Nov. 6, the date of the annual Middle and High School Expo.
This year’s expo will be from 6-8 p.m. at the University of Northern Colorado, University Center Ballroom at 2045 10th Avenue. There will be free parking at the event.
Principals and staff from District 6 traditional and charter middle, K-8 and high schools will be available to provide information and answer questions. There will also be information about Career Pathways, which includes the Health Science Academy and Arts Magnet Program at Greeley Central High School, the International Baccalaureate and Fire Science program at Greeley West High School, and the Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps and Science Technology Engineering Math (STEM) Academy at Northridge High School. Many other Pathway programs are also available at all three traditional high schools.
Parents and students can also get information on athletics, clubs and activities, music and arts, gifted and talented programs, early college credit, open enrollment, transportation, Summit Extended Day Program, AVID and many other programs offered at District 6 secondary schools. Also, participants can get information on the new Early College High School, opening in August 2015. This new high school will allow students to earn a two-year associates degree while completing their four-year high school program.
Students of all ages and grade levels are invited to attend. A Spanish language interpreter will be available to assist parents and students who need interpretation.
Aside from a plethora of information about District 6 schools, there will be live student musical performances, student artwork displays and information booths provided by many community partners, including the city of Greeley, the Success Foundation and more. Light refreshments will be provided.

Hygiene and warm clothing collected for students in need
Greeley-Evans School District 6 is collecting hygiene items and cold weather clothing to distribute to students in need in honor of November’s National Homeless and Runaway Youth Awareness month.
Greeley-Evans School District’s Families in Transition Program enrolls students in school, and provides resources and materials to academically support students in achieving their education. Over the last 5 school years, the Families in Transition Program has identified and assisted an average of 635 students per school year. Families and youth in our community may find themselves in transitional living situations due to a variety of circumstances.
Donations are now being accepted to support students identified in the Families in Transition Program in recognition of the awareness month. Hygiene items are used every day by most people, but a student living in a transitional living circumstance may not readily have those items.
Also, as the cold weather season begins, students are in need of warm clothing that will keep them warm as they walk to school, wait for their school bus, and play outside for recess.
Items being requested are:
Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Items may be placed in the donation box on the first floor of the District 6 Administration Building, 1025 9th Avenue. The office is open 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays. The donation box will be available throughout the month of November, but donations of these items are always appreciated year round in the Welcome Center of the district’s Administration Building.
