Out and about in the community

Thanks to Trenton Hoshiko and Dalton Haase who attended the Chamber of Commerce roundtable on oil and gas featuring Governor Hickenlooper.   These students were able to film this event and it is now on our youTube page if you would more info on this event.  Chamber of Commerce event    These students got to chat with protestors after the event as well.

Governor Hickenlooper discussing Fracking.

Michael Bellmont speaks on behalf of those opposed to fracking. 

  1. Anti-fracking protestors outside the Chamber of Commerce event.

Both 9th and 10th grade SCLA worked with outside facilitator Bob Urquidi focusing on "Breaking barriers to achieving your goals." Students had a great chance to think on their goals, and then break some boards! 

Writing goals and barriers on the boards

Breaking the boards!

Happy Friday!

It's  been a great week in SCLA! 

9th grade-

Mr. Lathrop is recovering nicely from shoulder surgery, we wish him well.  He is organizing SCLA to care for the SCHS flowerbeds and sign areas around the school.  This is a great opportunity to clean up around our own school and make a difference right at home.  Thanks Mr. Lathrop!

Mr Lathrop and Mrs. Gurule's class took a quiz to see what their leadership strengths and weaknesses are.   Ask your student to share their test scores with you, and even take the test yourself!

10th grade- 

We were sad to lose Mr. Carpenter as he takes on a new opportunity in Alaska.  Ms. Adams has the chance now to step into a larger role and will teach this course as well as continue on as program coordinator.  The 10th graders are working on finding cultural universals that connect us together, and are working on a presentation now.  

12th grade- 

Mrs. Kohn is working with SCLA 12 to finalize their plans on their capstone projects.  We will highlight a project weekly in our blog.  The seniors have some great ideas rolling forward!   The 12th graders have found out about TED talks and have heard a couple great ones.  What is your favorite leadership TED Talk? 

Guest Speakers 

Coming up this month- Bob the board breaking guy will work with SCLA 9 &10 and the Etiquette Coach is coming to work on those table manners!  Know someone who would be a great guest speaker for SCLA?  Contact Ms Adams

Volunteer opportunities: 

Blue Mountain is looking for students to help tutor before and after school.  See Ms. Adams for info if you are interested!

MONDAY OCT 1-  ALL HANDS ON DECK!    SCLA joins with the Longmont Chamber of Commerce to host a CANDIDATE NIGHT here at SCHS at 5pm.  Candidates from the many races will be here to debate. SCLA students will be needed in various positions to make this event come together.  This is a great chance for us to work with the community and provide a valuable service.  Sign ups will be on Ms Adams door starting Monday, Sept. 10th.
