The fifth annual Stapleton Education Expo will be held on Thursday, Nov. 5. Part informational meeting, part school showcase, this Expo is designed to be an aide in learning both how to maneuver the Denver Public Schools education choice process, as well as an opportunity to meet representatives from public and private schools in and around the Stapleton community. Starting with a formal presentation at 6:30pm, Denver Public Schools will discuss the choice process, introduce the DPS 2020 capacity plan and give an update on the construction at the Northfield campus. Marisol Enriquez, principal of the new Stapleton elementary school, will introduce the new school. DPS will be available after the presentation to answer questions about the choice process.
After this presentation, parents and students are invited to visit principals, faculty, and parents from 30+ neighborhood schools. Ranging from preschool through high school, participating schools include: Clayton Early Learning School, Happy Ladybug Preschool, Montview Community Preschool, Stapleton Fellowship Preschool, Paddington Station, Montessori Children’s House of Denver, Academy 360, Monarch Montessori, Roots Elementary, Ashley Elementary, Isabella Bird Community, Westerly Creek Elementary, Swigert International School, Bill Roberts School, High Tech Elementary, Polaris at Ebert, Morey Middle School, The Logan School, Blessed Sacrament, Colorado Academy, St. Elizabeth’s School, The Odyssey School, Stanley British Primary, Sewall Preschool, NE Community Engagement School, International School of Denver, McAuliffe International School, Denver Discovery, DSST: Stapleton, DSST: Conservatory Green, Venture Prep, Northfield High School, George Washington High School, and potentially others.
The 5th Annual Stapleton Education Expo is open to all who are interested in learning about education options in Northeast Denver, particularly parents or guardians of school-age children who will be participating in the DPS choice process this winter, or who need information about area daycare/preschool/private school options. The Expo will be held this year at the Conservatory Green campus, the current location of High Tech Elementary School and DSST: Conservatory Green, 8499 E. Stoll Place. Doors open at 6:15pm, formal presentation from DPS at 6:30pm, and meet-and-greet open session from 7 to 9pm.
Safety Forum for Nov. 17 SUN meetings: 6:30-7:30pm, Central Park Rec Center
The planned safety-focused agenda for the SUN block captain/outreach meeting for Tuesday, Nov. 17 will be expanded into a community forum format. At the forum will be representation from Denver Police Dept. (DPD), SUN’s Safety Committee, and the Stapleton Master Community Association; as well as State Rep. Angela Williams and Councilman Chris Herndon to answer questions and provide the necessary support from their respective offices. The agenda will begin with an update from the newly invigorated SUN Safety Committee, followed by a discussion from representatives at DPD on crime and crime statistics in Stapleton. Leadership from the MCA will answer questions on the MCA’s position to remain exclusively in partnership with the community and DPD, rather than seeking private unarmed patrol. For the second half of the hour, we will facilitate a general Q&A and in-person discussion. In the meantime, if your block is not yet participating in Neighborhood Watch, please get started by contacting DPD Community Resource Officer Sherikera L. Heflin: Sherikera.firstname.lastname@example.org.
