While most high school students were enjoying their summer break, Sadie Harper was wondering why she felt so awful. After numerous tests and doctor visits, and two days before the start of her senior year at Delta Opportunity School, Harper was sent to Rocky Mountain Children’s Hospital in Denver, where, the day before classes started, she was diagnosed with leukemia.
“Sadie was probably sick for a very long time,” said longtime family friend Ctina Abeyta. By the time she was correctly diagnosed, 60 percent of her cells had leukemia. “She’s a trouper,” said Abeyta, who is very involved with Harper and her three siblings and called them “a close-knit group.”

The accomplishment of successfully combining North Fork Montessori and Crawford School was celebrated on Thursday, Sept. 18. Members of the school district and those who worked in various ways to meet the goal were in attendance.
