Families of new school under construction give final steel beam proper send-off

The new Thunder Vista P-8, under construction in Broomfield, hit a milestone in December as structural steel work on the building finished.

Bond-purchased Chromebooks make instant impact in schools

When more than 200 new Chromebooks arrived in classrooms at Woodglen Elementary in October, the impact was quick and undeniable for the students and staff at this Thornton elementary school.

As part of more than $200,000 in Instructional Upgrades money promised to the school through the 2016 Bond Program, Woodglen earmarked $51,000 to add 216 Chromebooks (six Chrome Carts) to supplement the school’s aging fleet of mobile devices.
