Now Enrolling Flyer

JFBA/BB-E Open Enrollment Form:  Can be emailed to sboscia@weld8.org

 

 Attention Parents:  Due to the construction schedule for this summer, Twombly, Butler and Quest will end the current school year on Wednesday, May 16th.  Little Trappers Preschool, Fort Lupton Middle School and Fort Lupton High School will end on May 18th as originally scheduled.  Thank you for your patience!

 

On April 9, 2018, the Board of Education unanimously passed a change in the Homyak PK-8 School of Choice designation.  After careful study and research, Weld Re-8 placed attendance boundaries for students based on the location of the school.  Please click the link below to see the boundaries that were approved.

This change ensures every student’s ability to attend the school closest to him or her, but it does not change a student’s continuing opportunity to enroll in the school of his or her choice. All schools in the Weld Re-8 School District are Open Enrollment schools, and we encourage parents and students to look into what makes each of our schools unique. We want each student to feel a sense of pride in the school that he or she has chosen.  

The decision to make all Weld Re-8 schools Open Enrollment Boundary Schools will not affect current Quest students’ ability to enroll in Homyak PK-8.

Please contact me with any questions you may have.

Quest's Monthly Celebrations/Wins
  • For the 2nd year in a row, Quest is a recipient of the John Irwin School of Excellence Award, which is an award given through the Colorado Department of Education to schools that demonstrate exceptional academic achievement.
  • NJHS/NEHS Induction ceremony will be held Tuesday, March 20th.  This year there are 10 students being inducted.
  • Enrollment for Homyak PK-8 has begun.  We are seeing high interest from the community.
  • Read Across America Activities - Two kindergarten students presented excerpts from Dr. Suess's One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish at the City of Dacono's City Council Meeting.  Students in K - 5 dropped everything and gathered in the hallways to read with reading buddies.
  • Tuesday, March 6th was Chick-fil-a night. It was a fun, relaxed evening to gather as a Quest community in support of our school and our 8th graders who will be visiting Washington D.C. in May.
  • In addition to Chick-fil-a night, 8th graders held a candy bar sales fundraiser for their Washington D.C. trip.  The sales were successful as many students are now completely paid and ready for their adventure!
  • 2nd Grade practiced persuasion and argumentation through "The Trial of the Big Bad Wolf."  The students wrote the trial and performed it for their parents.
  • 4th grade took a field trip to the Nature & Science Museum where they participated in a museum scavenger hunt that guided them through the Colorado Standards they have been studying in class throughout the year.
  • 3rd grade learned graphing skills by graphing all the Olympic and Paralympic medals earned won by the U.S.
  • Parent-Teacher conferences were a success!  We are always appreciative of the partnership between Quest staff and parents as we work toward the common goal of student achievement and growth.
