Welcome back to another edition of Nick's Notes.
- In May, Coronado senior Ryan Karasopoulos is set to earn his high school diploma, along with a bachelor's degree in mathematics from the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs. Congratulations, Ryan!
- Colorado Springs School District 11 continually strives to make all District 11 schools the best choice in public education. It is well known that great schools equal great neighborhoods and communities that thrive. Please help us as we take the necessary steps to keep our neighborhoods and communities flourishing.
During the next two months, several public forums and Coffee with the Community events will be held. We hope you will come to the next public forum or community coffee to give us your thoughts and ideas on the Board of Education's current work to bring forward an MLO in November 2017. The next public forum will be held on Tuesday, April 11, 6 p.m., at Palmer High School, 301 North Nevada Avenue, in the Eagle Wing. The next Coffee with the Community will be held on Thursday, April 13, 9 a.m. at Peak Place Coffee House, 2360 Montebello Square Dr., Suite H1.
