Class Picture Day Is Monday, 3/13!

We are holding our Class Picture Day with Bloom School Pictures on Monday, March 13! 

All picture ordering, including late orders of our fall students portraits, will take place online through Bloom’s website. We will share information in our weekly newsletter and on ClassDojo when class pictures are ready to be ordered!

Please note that families will need their student’s school ID number to access picture ordering. If you don’t have your student’s ID number, visit or call our office at (720) 424-5600.

Big and Small, We Need Them All!

Our PTA Auction Committee is still in need of donations for our upcoming auction in April. This is our largest fundraiser of the year, and we need you all to help make it a success! Handmade items, sharing a skill, fine wine or liquor, time at a vacation home – whatever it is you have to give, we’re so grateful!

We are also very grateful for anyone who can donate time to help us solicit local donations — we’ll provide the tools, but we need your feet and voice!

Please email to let us know what you can donate!
