As you have likely heard, a close partner of Colorado Succeeds has experienced a terrible tragedy. STEM School Highlands Ranch is recognized as a model of excellence in education across Colorado and yesterday’s horrific events hurt us all to the core. What we know about STEM School Highlands Ranch is that their school leaders and community are resilient. We have brought education, business, and community leaders to their school to learn how Colorado can develop learners who are able to adapt to an uncertain future. However, recent events cause us to reflect and understand that in our effort to develop agile learners, we must acknowledge that we are still working with fragile kids, and must give greater attention to the mental health crisis faced by our schools.
As the learning environment grows increasingly complex, we are committed to continually evaluating the best way to encourage systemic change. Immediately, we would like to lend our support with a fund to help the school get the counseling and support they need to provide resources to their students, staff, and families. Colorado Succeeds is making an initial donation of $5,000 and we would ask you to join us. 100% of all donations will go directly to STEM School Highlands Ranch and are fully tax deductible. We hope to present our gift to Dr. Penny Eucker at our annual members meeting next Friday, May 17th.
