8th graders will be presenting their Inquiry Quest
projects tomorrow afternoon as they celebrate their completion of 8th grade and their time here at Husltrom.
Inquiry Quest is a Hulstrom expectation for all 8th graders.
It is a project that incorporates technology, reading, writing, research, and
presentation standards. The students have worked diligently and passionately to

Congratulations to all the 'All Stars' who ran in the Lions Club Relay on May 5th. Eighteen schools participated in this track meet which raised over $1,000 for the Lions Club world wide eyeglass program. 1st-5th graders participated in 4x100 relays and older students also running a 4x400 relay. A Hulstrom 3rd grade girls team earned 1st place ribbon and all the runners did a great job representing our school. Congratulations to these runners:

From the Principal's Desk
Thank you for the incredible and ongoing support for your child and children, as well as the entire staff! Because of this collaborative relationship we continue to be recognized as the top school in Adams Twelve and one of the top schools in Colorado!
Although the complaints about parents pulling into our neighbor's driveways to turn around, and the concern about speeding on the streets around Hulstrom have decreased, we continue to have several parents and guardians "whipping" into our parking lot before school. We are concerned for the safety of our students and families, and ask you to put safety of students and families before your own convenience.
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 two beautiful 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 the office.
If you ever wish to visit with me, please do not hesitate to stop in and see me, call me at 720-972-5400, or email me at email@example.com
Thank you for everything you do to support Hulstrom K-8, A School for Advanced Academics and Gifted Education!
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. For the 2011 school year, 249 schools in Colorado earned the John Irwin Award and 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 2011 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 2011 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.
Colorado Governor's Distinguished Improvement Awards Commisioner of Education Richard Hammond has announced that Hulstrom Options K8 School has been recognized for the the Colorado Governor's Distinguished Improvement Award. Each year beginning in 2000, this award recognizes the top 8 percent of schools in the state, based on longitudinal student growth on statewide assessments across 3 years. WAY TO GO HULSTROM STUDENTS AND TEACHERS!
