Lincoln Elementary students certainly know how to get the community involved in the giving spirit! On Saturday, Dec. 6, approximately 20 students along with several teacher, administrative and parent supervisors stood in front of the Delta Walmart store from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. doing everything they could to encourage shoppers to donate food and personal hygiene items.

The public comment section of the Dec. 11 school board agenda attracted five individuals who urged the board to reject the application for the Mount Lamborn School of Arts and Science. School curriculum would be based on the Waldorf method of teaching.

All seventh and eighth graders from county schools — Paonia Jr. High School, Cedaredge Middle School, Delta Middle School and Hotchkiss K-8 — were given a 50-word written spelling test from the Scripps spelling bee organization. Of these students, the top 30 spellers were invited to the oral spelling bee for the district competition on Dec. 12.

Upwards of 70 educators, parents and concerned community members met in Paonia last Friday night to voice their opinions about the application for the Mount Lamborn Academy of Arts & Science Charter School. If approved, the school will be located in the Paonia area and operate under the auspices of the Delta County Joint School District #50.

Three schools in Delta County Joint School District #50 were named recipients of the Governor’s Distinguished Improvement Award last week.
The Colorado Department of Education celebrated the 2014 district and school performance results in an awards ceremony at the CDE office in Denver.
