Fossil Ridge had the opportunity to send a team to Fruita, Colorado Middle
School early last week. Like Fossil Ridge, Fruita Middle School is a Model PLC
School, and Solution Tree DuFour Award participant. The Fossil Ridge team spent two days observing, learning, sharing, and reflecting on successful practices that produce high levels of learning for all students. Fruita Middle School will send a team to visit Fossil Ridge next Fall.
Our very own Mr. Candland (Orchestra) took a team of Pine View High school
students to the National Music Listening Contest in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The team finished in 1st place overall, and was so far ahead they did not
even have to complete the final round...Congratulations Mr. Candland!
