Autumn teaches us a valuable lesson. During summer, all the green trees are beautiful. But there is no time of the year when the trees are more beautiful than when they are different colors. Diversity adds beauty to our world.

  Operation giving back
  Photos by Cara Lord-Geiser

   Isaiah Berberette, age 13, of Falcon started Operation Christmas Giving Back to help children in need of Christmas gifts when he was just 6 years old. His mother, Sara Berberette, and their doggy-elf, Frankie, helped Isaiah raise funds through a bake sale.
   Partnering with them this year is Warriors Warehouse and IKEA. If Operation Christmas Giving Back reaches $3,000, then IKEA will give $2,000 and match two toys for every one toy purchased at IKEA. Way to go Isaiah!

  Photos by Cara Lord-Geiser

   El Paso County Colorado School District 49 held a ribbon cutting ceremony in November for the new zSpace bus/virtual learning lab. The lab was funded by a Department of Defense Education Activity grant.
These six people worked hard to get the bus up and running as a mobile lab (from left to right): Deb Hall, Aaron Villescas, Lea Holland, Sam Dosen, Dee Dickson and Melissa Dashner.
Because of a DoDEA grant received in 2018, D 49 was able to convert a retired school bus into a mobile learning lab. Students submitted artwork that was used to give the donated bus a fun look.
The D 49 mobile lab is equipped with multiple work stations, providing students an opportunity to learn in a 3D virtual environment.
