Dear DSST Conservatory Green Families,

I had the opportunity to visit our 2017-2018 High School temporary space at the Samsonite Campus last week.  I was impressed by what the facility has to offer for us next year. As I walked the halls, I could easily envision our morning meetings in the commons area, our basketball teams playing in the gym, and our 9th graders diligently preparing for college in the spacious classrooms. After getting a chance to see our 1st year space, I am really confident that it will serve our school community well before we transition to our new building at the Sandoval Campus. I can’t wait to see energy and ambition brought to the halls of the Samsonite building next year by our founding Class of 2022.

I am excited for you and your students to share in this vision with me at the Samsonite Campus.  I would like to invite all 8th grade families to tour the Samsonite Campus and then stay for an optional open house on programming afterwards.   As a bonus, we’ll get a sneak peek at the design for our new building on the Sandoval Campus!

Please join us on Thursday, January 26 at 6:00PM at the Samsonite Campus for a tour at our 2017-2018 DSST Conservatory Green High School.

Dear DSST: Conservatory Green Families,

 

We are thrilled to announce that the Denver Public Schools (DPS) Board of Education voted to locate our Conservatory Green High School on the Samsonite Campus for the 2017-2018 school year and then permanently at the Paul Sandoval Campus for the 2018-2019 school year. We are incredibly grateful for all of our parents, staff and students who have been advocates for our high school building placement. This marks the end of a long period of advocacy for our high school, all of which wouldn’t be possible without your support. We also want to extend our gratitude to the DPS Board of Education and our School Board representative, Dr. Rachele Espiritu, for their support.

 

We are eager to begin collaborating with the school leaders at High Tech Early College on the Samsonite Campus and Northfield High School on the Paul Sandoval Campus to ensure that we are being proactive about planning for shared facility use. Our staff intends to work very closely with both schools so that we create the best educational experience for all students at all schools. We are committed to creating the same positive and collaborative shared campus experience for DSST: Conservatory Green High School that exists for our other DSST schools. At the DPS School Board meeting the Board of Education also pledged to bolster other supports to ensure that the Paul Sandoval Campus will be fully functional for our arrival by 1) adding 100 parking spots and 2) building a full-service cafeteria on the Paul Sandoval Campus by the fall of 2018.

 

Finally, if you have not had a chance to meet me I would like to invite you to a DSST: Conservatory Green High School Open House on Thursday, January 12th at 6:00pm at DSST: Conservatory Green Middle School (8499 Stoll Pl., Denver, CO 80238).  For families who already attended the open house on December 13th, you do not need to attend since we will cover much of the same information. I look forward to answering any questions you have and to giving you and your family an overview of what our high school program will look like. Please RSVP by December 21st.

 

Thank you,


Adeel Khan

Estimadas familias de DSST: Conservatory Green,

Nos entusiasma anunciar que el Consejo de Educación de las Escuelas Públicas de Denver (DPS por sus siglas en inglés) votaron para ubicar a nuestra Preparatoria Conservatory Green en el Campus Samsonite para el año escolar 2017-2018 y luego permanentemente en el Campus Paul Sandoval comenzando el año escolar 2018-2019. Estamos increíblemente agradecidos por todos los padres, personal y estudiantes quienes han abogado por un edificio para nuestra preparatoria. Esto marca el final de un largo periodo de abogacía por nuestra preparatoria, algo que nunca hubiera sido posible sin su apoyo. También queremos extender nuestra gratitud al Consejo de Educación de DPS y a nuestra representante, Dr. Rachele Espiritu, por su apoyo.  

Estamos ansiosos por iniciar nuestra colaboración con los líderes escolares de High Tech Early College en el Campus Samsonite y la Preparatoria Northfield en el Campus Paul Sandoval para asegurar que seamos proactivos en la planificación del uso compartido de las instalaciones. Nuestro personal planea trabajar muy cercanamente con ambas escuelas para crear la mejor experiencia educativa para todos los estudiantes en todas las escuelas. Nos comprometemos a crear la misma experiencia positiva y colaborativa de un campus compartido para la Preparatoria DSST: Conservatory Green que existe en nuestras otras escuelas DSST. En la reunión del Consejo de Educación de DPS, ellos también prometieron fortalecer otros apoyos para garantizar que el Campus Paul Sandoval estará completamente listo para nuestra llegada al 1) añadir 100 unidades de estacionamiento y 2) construir una cafetería de servicio completo en el Campus Paul Sandoval antes del otoño 2018.  

Finalmente, si no han tenido la oportunidad de conocerme los invito a una sesión informativa sobre la Preparatoria DSST: Conservatory Green el jueves, 12 de enero a las 6:00pm en la Secundaria DSST: Conservatory Green (8499 Stoll Pl., Denver, CO 80238). Para las familias que asistieron la sesión informativa el 13 de diciembre, no es necesario asistir en enero ya que cubriremos mucha de la misma información. Espero ansiosamente contestar todas sus preguntas y darle a usted y su familia un resumen del programa de nuestra preparatoria. Por favor confirmen su asistencia antes del 12 de diciembre.

Gracias,

Adeel Khan

Director de la Preparatoria DSST: Conservatory Green
