Sandy Allen

  This week we want to recognize Sandy Allen. She is a member of the maintenance staff at Stanton Community School. Sandy started as a para in 2016 and then joined the maintenance staff in the summer of 2017 and has been on our maintenance crew since then.  Sandy and her husband, Jerry Wallace, love Stanton, the greenbelt trail and the well maintained areas of the town. An interesting fact is that she was a founding member of Boulder Colorado's first Charter school 27 years ago which is still going strong. Sandy enjoys hiking, reading and photography and she can stay active and fit working at the school. She enjoys being able to walk to work each day and also is fantastic at helping provide a safe, healthy and clean learning environment for the students. We greatly appreciate all that Sandy does for our students and school. She is an important part of our success at Stanton!! Thank you very much.

Tornado Warning

  The staff and students did a super job dealing with the tornado warning we had on Tuesday. The Viking Center is a safe place for our students and staff during a tornado warning. We are grateful for that opportunity to be in there. Also a thanks to the cheerleaders for leading the elementary students in some cheers.
