 Please don't forget to collect Box Tops & Labels for Education over the summer!  The student who collects the most over the summer will win 2 movie tickets and a Florida Mesa t-shirt.  Let the collecting begin...

 Please make sure you are current with your student's lunch account.  If you are interested in filling out a free/reduced lunch form, please stop by the front office.  At the end of the school year all past due balances will be sent to collections.  Please make sure you are current!!!

Are you in the service or a veteran with a student in Durango School District 9-R​? The Elks Lodge BPOE #507​ is giving out backpacks full of school supplies to 9-R students whose parent or parents are in or have been in the service. Students can write a letter listing what grade they will be entering and what they want to be when they grow up to qualify. Turn letters in at the Elks Lodge to get your backpack full of supplies!

Fighting summer boredom already? Science to the Rescue! is a fun science program offered by MakerLab for young scientist and inventors, age 8-11. The camp runs M-F from 9-3 at Durango High School. Explore science as a heroic tool to be used every day. Use science skills, resourcefulness, creativity and everyday household items to build contraptions, escape from sticky situations, set traps, put out fires, build and launch rockets and problem solve under pressure.

Mrs. Toppin will be hosting our very own Science Club starting in September.  We are now looking for any community members that have science, technology, engineering or math careers that would be interested in doing presentations for our students.  We are also looking for any parent volunteers to help out with this great expedition.  If you are interested please email Mrs Toppin at
