Colorado Springs D11 Howbert Elementary to hold Annual Event Promoting Healthy Living - 09/27/23

COLORADO SPRINGS: Howbert Elementary School PTO is in its 10th year of sponsoring a fundraiser that promotes healthy living and school spirit. Howbert Elementary is an outdoor learning school, and 100% of the funds raised will help support outdoor educational programs, classroom materials, outdoor learning supplies/experiences, technology, field trips, and other student and staff school-related needs.

Our goal is to raise over $20,000 to support Howbert Elementary.

On Friday, September 29, 2023, our Walk-A-Thon will be held from 8:45-9:30 AM. About 300 Howbert Elementary School students, teachers, staff, interested parents, and community members will walk continuously around our school playground. A rainbow of color-coordinated shirts and abundant kid enthusiasm will make for a picturesque community event. We anticipate having many community members, including our CSPD, local school and team mascots, and even some Star Wars characters!

Local businesses have provided prizes that will be awarded to our students, raising the most donations. We will also host a pizza lunch from Louie’s Pizza the following week for every student who raises over $75 and is planning a whole school assembly as a thank-you to our students!

Coronado High School and D11 Officials to Cut Ribbon on New Track and Field - 09/12/23

The media is invited to join Coronado High School and D11 leaders to officially cut the ribbon on Thursday, September 14, 2023, at 6:45 p.m. and celebrate completing a brand new track and field. Work started on the new track and field last spring. On September 14, the Coronado High School varsity soccer team will play on the new field for the first time. Funding for the track and field was approved by the D11 School Board from vacant funds unused due to the pandemic. 

This project delivers state-of-the-art sports surfaces for student-athletes, band students, and others to enjoy! A new artificial sports turf field surrounded by a new synthetic running track and energy-efficient LED lights provides an up-to-date and competitive environment, aligning D11 schools with others around Colorado.

These improvements will enhance the aesthetics of the Coronado property while dramatically improving the safety and sustainability of these sports surfaces for many years. 

Join us for the ribbon cutting and stay for the varsity soccer game, food trucks, band and choir performances!
