DATCWhat:  Field Trip to the State Capitol Building in Denver

When:  Tuesday, February 16th, all day

Join Mr. Huff and Mr. Dawson on a field trip to the capitol building in Denver!  We will attend a rally in support of online education together with other cyberschool families, tour the historical capitol building (including the dome this year), and stop for dinner at the Pueblo Mall on the way home. 

A bus will transport students and parents from Monte Vista, leaving early in the morning and returning the same evening.  Anyone living between Monte Vista and Denver, on the I-25 corridor may be eligible for pick-up.  Others are encouraged to meet us at the event. 

Contact Mr. Huff if you are interested.  We have 20 tickets for the capitol tours total, so the first students to turn in permission slips (and parents turning in chaperon forms) will be given priority.  Please plan to turn these in by Thursday, Feb. 4th at the latest.
