Is your child not formally identified as gifted and talented?  Or perhaps your child is identified as talent pool?  Do you think your child might be gifted and talented?  Gifted/Talented (G/T) testing at Hulstrom is currently scheduled for December 8, 2022.  If you have a student you would like to nominate for G/T identification (and they have not already been identified as gifted), complete this online form no later than November 8, 2022.  After nominating your child, you will receive a parent input and permission form for testing.  If you’d like more information on the identification process, you can go to the district website with this link.  You can also reach out to Sally Wasinger, GT Coordinator, at or 720-972-5415.

  • Pictures with the Principal - 7:00-7:20am by the arch in the front of the building, if desired.

  • Drop your child off or have them meet their teacher in the designated area beginning at 7:20am.

  • Parents and family members can come to the front of the school to watch the parade and help clap students into a new school year.

  • Parents - be mindful of where you stand.  The first students through the arch will be our middle school students, and they will line the area from the arch into the school to clap in all of the elementary students.  Some of them are tall and may obstruct your view if you choose to stand there!

  • The parade will begin as close to 7:40am as possible.  Please arrive with plenty of time as parking will get a bit crazy.  Remember to always please respect the neighborhood and not park in front of driveways.  Please do not park at STEM Lab.

  • Following the First Day of School Parade, we would like to invite New Families into the cafeteria for a New Family coffee!

I loved Hulstrom from the very moment we met the first teacher during back to school night.  It was immediately apparent that the curriculum was going to challenge my kids and push them to meet their greatest potential.  Just as importantly however, the teachers conveyed the most genuine love and caring for their students.  In fact one of them actually got teary as she spoke about the teaching profession and what her students had meant to her over the years.  We looked no further… I knew Hulstrom was the community for us!
