Three days of PD gearing up for the year. Two school days for the elementary, and orientation for middle school and high school. It is great to see these faces again!!!!


Welcome to the new school year, students! We’re so excited to see our Cyclones in the halls today. Reminder that today and Friday (August 26) are 1:15 EARLY DISMISSAL days for TK-5! We hope every family, teacher and staff member has a good first day experience and positive start to the school year.

And remember the years go by too fast, so get that “First Day” hug and picture ❤️ Show us those smiles in the comments and remember It’s A Great Day To Be A Denver Cyclone!


Smile! Thursday we welcome Cyclone students to the start of a new school year! The years go by fast so don’t forget to hug them tight and take a picture to remember the day. Everyday is a great day to be a Denver Cyclone and it’s always better when we can share in the joy and positive community together. Tomorrow and all throughout the year….include the hashtag and tell everyone that It’s a Great Day to be a Denver Cyclone!


Reminder that 6-12 grade students only should report during their assigned time on Thursday and Friday for building orientation. They will also be receiving their laptops at this time. Special Note!!—we will not have student lockers installed for the start of the school year so students do not need to bring locker accessories at this time.


Welcome Back ALL STAFF! Great energy today! It is going to be a great year!


Our staff is pumped to see our Cyclones! Just a reminder that Elementary Back to School Night is this Tuesday (August 23) from 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM.


It was a wonderful first official day for new teachers in our District. We’re adding some fantastic educators to our Cyclone family! Please welcome them and wish them well. All other staff and faculty report on Monday. One more weekend left!
Pictured below are our new Secondary faculty members: Abby Wolf (Special Education), Karen Van De Walle (Agriculture), Heather Peterson (Business), Jacob Brandenburg (Band) and Sam Lorimor (Social Studies)


Our school year would never be possible if it weren’t for the work our custodial staff and others did over the summer. In addition to regular maintenance and building improvements, they relocated several elementary classes, cleared away the old secondary building and setup an entirely new secondary building. A simple “Thank You” just scratches the surface of how grateful we are. Please help us applaud and celebrate them! (if you know their helpful faces, tag them below!)
