We appreciate you and your loyalty to our program and to Pagosa Springs High School sports.

Sixth-grade team

There are so many things that happen towards the end of a school year, we often forget to thank those people in our community who make a difference in a child’s life by sharing their knowledge, expertise and time. The sixth-grade team at the Pagosa Springs Middle School would like to thank the following people who helped us to create unique learning opportunities for our sixth-grade students:

Mike Reid, Adrian Archuleta, Doug Purcell and Don Volger for helping our students have the opportunity to obtain their hunter safety cards at no cost to the parents. Natalie Wood who helped to contact all the volunteers who came our to hunter safety range day: Pagosa Springs Fire Department, Pagosa Springs Emergency Response Team, Pagosa Springs Forest Service and their quick response team and several community members who gave of their time to teach our students about fire building, orienteering, camp cooking, trailing an animal, tying knots and so much more.

We would also like to thank all people from the Soil Conservation District who helped create our Conservation Day, which helped our students learn more about the unique environment we live in here in Pagosa Springs and how they can help to develop habits and practices that will help sustain our beautiful area. Cindy Purcell, who helped to contact all volunteers who came out to our Conservation Day: Dan Wand, Wendy Sutton, Kari Eden, Jerry Archuleta and Shaan Bliss. We would also like to thank the owners and caretakers of the Rafter T Ranch for once again letting us use their property for our trip.

There are also many others who come into our school to help in our classrooms during sporting events, on our playgrounds to help us make this a safe and productive school environment. Thank you.
