Avid4Adventure at Willow



Willow Elementary PTA is excited for Avid4Adventure’s visit to the school next week (10/1 to 10/8) — the kids are going to have such a great time! Each child will have access to a portable rock climbing wall, a mountain bike skills course, a kayak paddle tank, and a “Leave No Trace” outdoor classroom. Our PTA is proud to have made this day possible by paying for the full costs for every single WES student.

Here are all the details:

Parents are welcome to come watch — please check in at the front office before you come out to the field. Also, each day after school from 3:45-4:45PM the portion of the student body who participated in Avid that day will get to go out to the field to show their parents what they learned. Parents and siblings are welcome to participate in the stations during this after school time.

Schedule for Classrooms:

  • TBD

What to bring:

  • Sack lunch and a snack packed in a bag with your child’s name on the outside.

Project Comfort & Joy Has Begun!

At High Tech Elementary School, we are dedicated to helping each other. We understand that one of the strengths of our school is its rich diversity of community, with our students coming from many different backgrounds and situations.

Project Comfort & Joy is a way that our school provides extra support through the holiday season for some of our own HTES families. We are collecting donations over the next 2 weeks that will be used to provide necessities to help the families, in our own community, who could use some extra support as the weather turns colder and the long school break is upon us.

Starting Monday December 5:

Choose a gift request on a gift tag, from the display outside the front office or on select days you can pick one up from volunteers during outside drop-off/pickup.

Purchase, wrap and return gifts to the front office no later than Friday, December 16.

Please make sure to include the original gift tag, so we know who the gift is for. It’s that easy!

Last year, we were able to provide gifts for twenty-five children from eight of our own High Tech families as well as providing $100 for food during the holiday break.

Thank you for your support!

Please contact the PTA with any questions at community@hightechpta.com.

Special Thanks to our Sponsors

Thanksgiving Food Drive

It’s the time of year again where we take a moment to pause and give thanks for the many wonderful things we have in our lives. It is also a time to share with others who have less. For the second year, High Tech Elementary PTA is proud to partner with Growing Home, a local non-profit that supports North Denver area children and families who are in need.

Last year, High Tech Elementary was able to donate 15 complete baskets, 25 boxes of food and over $500 in gift cards.  Growing Home is hoping to put together a total of 300 baskets this Thanksgiving.  We can easily make this goal by working together as a community.

Below is a list of requested items, broken down by classroom teacher. Please find your childs teacher, and bring the set of listed items to their classroom anytime between Tuesday, November 1st and Thursday, November 17th. PTA volunteers will deliver our our items on Friday, November 18th.

Classrooms that reach 100% participation will be rewarded with a special prize for the children – a pajama day! So bring over and above the number of items assigned in order to ensure success!

We are also collecting gift cards for King Soopers and Walmart in denominations of $10 and $15 in order to cover the cost of a turkey for each family. We are looking to collect 60 of these cards in order to make our Thanksgiving Baskets complete! Please consider making this donation. All gift cards can be turned in to the Thanksgiving Turkey located in the front office.

Thank you in advance for your generosity. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

If you have any questions, please contact Alexis Clendenin, PTA community chair, at  community@hightechpta.com.
