Did You Know?
February is Love the Bus month in School District 11! Launched in 2007, the national Love the Bus campaign is a month-long celebration held every February. The event celebrates the importance and role of the yellow school bus in education, with a particular focus on thanking school bus drivers for safely transporting nearly 10,000 children to and from school every day. So this month, we encourage everyone to show support for the men and women who drive our children to and from school every day!
Coming soon! Colorado Springs School District 11 is moving in a great direction and we want to hear from you! Be watching for opportunities to participate and give your feedback in “world café” style sessions that will be scheduled January 28 through February 2. Details to come on social media, through the D11 Loop, on our school’s website and the D11 online calendar!
School District 11 has a new superintendent! We welcome Mr. Michael Thomas who joined D11 at the beginning of July. Mr. Thomas comes to D11 from Minneapolis Public Schools, where he served as chief of schools. He has also served as a district coordinator for equity and integration, an elementary and secondary principal, and as a social worker at the elementary level. Mr. Thomas is excited to be a part of School District 11 and looks forward to continuing the positive work being done in our school district.
