The Home Stretch to Summer: School News
Last month, 4th, 5th and 6th grade students from Leadville’s Greater Heights Academy spent the night at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. The program provides fun, hands-on links to the science classroom and helps teachers meet some of the content standard goals in science, visual arts, and history. Plus, how cool is it to spend the night in the museum!
It was a busy time for the Greater Heights students as they also got a private tour of Colorado’s State Capitol by Senator Kerry Donovan. It’s the place where the laws are made and policy debated.
Plus, they learned, who is the only women in the stained glass rotunda under Colorado’s Golden Dome. Do you know? Might ask a Greater Heights student! Hint: She founded the forerunner to today’s United Way charitable organization!
