A message from Ms. Madsen:

I’d like to thank the entire Hulstrom community for making me feel so welcome in my first month as the new principal.  It’s been so exciting for me to meet and greet an entirely new group of faculty, students, and parents as we embark upon the 2015-2016 school year.  Although I am fairly skilled in remembering student’s names, it will take me some time since there are close to 700 students at Hulstrom.  In the meantime, I look forward to learning about the students and their interests.

As we move into the middle of September, it is clear that a change of seasons is approaching.  The days are becoming a bit shorter and there is a morning chill in the air as the students arrive at school.  The vibrant colors of autumn will soon be painting the landscape of Colorado with gold, orange, and yellow hues.  As a native of Colorado, I feel we live in the most beautiful state in the country, especially when autumn arrives.  A trip to Rocky Mountain National Park or any scenic drive are great ways to explore the Colorado colors and wildlife. Before the madness of a new school year fully set in, set aside some time with your family to view the changing landscape and officially say good-bye to summer.  You won’t regret it!

Like the changing of seasons, Hulstrom has experienced some personnel changes as well.  We are thrilled to announce that Darla Brand will serve as our new office manager.  Darla has extensive experience as an office manager in Adams 12.  Crystal Wieland will serve as our new health aide.  Crystal has worked in Adams 12 for the past 16 years, most recently as a BASE director.  Darla and Crystal are both outgoing, friendly, and willing to lend a hand to anyone. Please join me in welcoming Darla and Crystal to the Hulstrom community!

In addition to the personnel changes mentioned above, Hulstrom will be undergoing a thorough program review to determine if any changes need to be made at our school.  As the new principal, I want to make sure that Hulstrom is providing students with the very best education possible.  Given the transitions that Hulstrom has experienced over the years, I want all stakeholders (students, parents, and faculty) to have the opportunity to share their opinions about some of the following questions:  What makes Hulstrom a great school?  What are some things Hulstrom could be doing better?  What is the vision and mission of Hulstrom?  Where do we see Hulstrom in the next five years?  There will be many opportunities to be a part of the review process and voice your opinions about the direction Hulstrom should take.  I’d like to encourage everyone to participate so we receive an adequate representation from all stakeholders.  More information will be sent out to you as we get closer to implementing the program review.

Again, thank you for welcoming me to Hulstrom.  Your support means a great deal to me and I look forward to a very successful and promising year together!

Ms. Judi Madsen

School and Play - Everyday!
Hulstrom K-8 has partnered with Playworks, a national non-profit, to ensure that we are doing our best to incorporate healthy, inclusive play into our school day - every day, for every student.  Read more details here.


State Statue 18-9-109 requires all VISITORS and VOLUNTEERS to check in at the main office. Please address all concerns at the office window. You will receive a “VISITOR” OR “VOLUNTEER” sticker badge to wear while you are in the school.

PLEASE DO NOT GO TO CLASSROOMS WITHOUT CHECKING IN AT THE FRONT WINDOW. If you wish to visit the classroom or speak with the teacher, please call to make an appointment. This includes before and after school. Teachers have a very limited time to plan and prepare for instruction and dropping in can be disruptive.

Students other than currently enrolled at Hulstrom K-8 are not allowed to visit classrooms. THIS IS FOR THE SECURITY OF ALL CHILDREN IN OUR SCHOOL.

Classroom parent volunteers (who volunteer on a weekly basis) will be asked to attend a one-time volunteer orientation provided through PTA.



Inclement Weather: On bad weather days students will enter the front of the building.

Students will congregate at the foyer (Elementary at the south entrance, Middle School at the north) and at 7:40 AM, we will allow students to enter until the bell rings at 7:45. We have designated areas inside the building where kids are to be until their classroom teacher picks them up or brings them to the classroom. At the end of school, we will dismiss the same way so parents know where to meet students. Please look for our Hulstrom banners on inclement weather days.
These banners will help you know if students will enter through the classroom doors or the front doors.

Remember, inclement weather is defined as colder than 20 degrees Fahrenheit, and or raining and snowing.

If you have any questions, please call 720-972-5400.

Awards and Recognition

Recently, Colorado Superintendents received notification if a school, or schools, in their respected school district earned either the John Irwin Award, or the Governor’s Distinguished Improvement Award.  

 We are proud to announce that Hulstrom Options K-8 is one of only 57 schools in the state to receive both the John Irwin Award and the Governor’s Distinguished Improvement Award. 

  The John Irwin awards are awarded to schools that “exceed” expectations on the 3-year school performance framework’s indicator related to academic achievement and that “meet or exceed” expectations on the indicator related to academic growth gaps.  These schools demonstrate the highest levels of achievement not just for some students but also adequate performance across all student groups. 

 The Governor’s Distinguished Improvement awards are awarded to schools that “exceed” expectations on the 3-year school performance framework’s indicator related to academic growth and “meet or exceed” expectations on the indicator related to academic growth gaps.  These schools demonstrate the highest levels of growth for not just some students but all student groups. 

 Both of these awards are due to the hard work of your children, the staff, and you... the parents. 

Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to work with and teach your children.
