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.

Hulstrom K-8 VISITORS and VOLUNTEERS

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.

From the Principal's Desk

Dear Hulstrom K-8 Families,

 

Welcome to Hulstrom K-8, A School for Advanced Academics and Gifted Education.  As you know, we love our parents and all of the hours they dedicate to our school.  Parents are always welcome to volunteer. Please learn specific needs of the teacher/staff member you are volunteering for, sign up for our PTA Volunteer Orientation, and follow all District Twelve policies before you begin volunteering.

Adams Twelve policy requires all volunteers to complete the Volunteer Application every year.  We have attached the English Volunteer Code of Conduct, and the Spanish Volunteer Code of Conduct, as well as the  English and Spanish version of the Volunteer Application, (Superintendent Policy 8800).  Just click on the links above. 

Please complete the application and Code of Conduct so your assistance with our students and staff in a volunteer capacity will not be delayed.

2014-15 is our second year implementing the "Hug & Go" lane.  The circle lane is a one lane “Hug & Go” only. When you pull into the “Hug & Go” please do not park in the lane for any amount of time.

The following are steps we have implemented to assist with a smooth drop off and pick up for your child:

- Parents please do not get out of the car at any time while in the “Hug & GO” lane.  Your child may open the car door closest to the school when traffic stops and you do not need to wait until you get near the south end of the "Hug & Go" lane for your child to get out of your vehicle.

- When you pull into the "Hug & Go" lane, please pull all the way forward toward the last cone even if your child is a middle school student. DO NOT stop for convenience; the flow must keep moving from north to south,

- If you have to park to help your child with projects, etc, you must park in a legal parking spot in the parking lot or on the street.  Please use the crosswalks.

We will have supervision along the Hug & Go lane, and on the playground, assisting your child and helping him or her to class.

In the afternoon, you are welcome to wait in your car in the Hug & Go lane. However, you may not leave your car. If you need to leave your car, please park in a legal parking space, or on the street. And, just like in the morning, please continue to pull forward if there is room.

If you choose to park on Wyco Drive or our side streets:

-Please do not J-walk. This is extremely poor modeling for your child, a safety issue, and against the law. Please use the Cross-Walk on Wyco Drive or 115th.

- Please park legally. This includes in our school parking lot.

- Do not turn around in the neighbor’s driveway.

- Do not block driveways or park in red zones.

If you have relatives or other adults picking up your child, please be sure they understand these statements. It is up to us, as adults, to model safety and kindness.

Thank you for following these simple rules of safety!

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.  

 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.

 


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!
