Cultural Enrichment Night
The Cultural Enrichment Night programs will cover a variety of topics throughout the school year. Many classes will be hands on learning classes covering the various Native American people that represented within Adams 12 Five Star Schools. There are also several social events that will occur to hopefully bring the native families of the Five Star District together in an informal and fun setting. In the past several years the Native American Education Program in conjunction with the American Indian Parent Advisory Committee (AIPAC) has put on events for Halloween, Thanksgiving/Turkey Day and Christmas. We are fortunate to have a variety of families within the school district that have been willing to share their knowledge and talents to lead many of the Cultural Enrichment Nights. Check the calendar page for any changes of the dates, times and locations for the Cultural Night events.
The Cultural Night events for the 2017 - 2018 school year will be hosted at Vantage Point High School in the cafeteria on Thursday Nights from 6 - 8 pm. Vantage Point High School is located on Huron Street north of 104th Ave. The address for the school is 10900 Huron St. Northglenn, CO 80234.
