It is our pleasure to celebrate all of the graduates from our PSD Transition Programs! Congratulations to each of you as you embrace your next adventures!
Looking Back on this Year…Game On!!
It’s not whether you win or lose…! Rich Feller, a past CSU faculty member in the School of Education, and an author, speaker, and counselor with Rich Feller and Associates, co-authored a game called “Who You Are MATTERS”. Mr. Feller was a guest presenter for PSD’s Project SEARCH, where he shared his game with students. “Who You are MATTERS” ‘sparks meaningful conversations and helps participants connect the dots in their professional and personal lives’. (Description from website richfeller.com.) Project SEARCH Program Specialist, Emilie Ring, used the game as a transition assessment, and will work with Mr. Feller to create a modified version for students on IEPs for transition planning.

Looking Back on this Year…Temple Grandin!!
In November, Temple Grandin Zoomed in to Kaitlin Patterson’s Agricultural Science class at Rocky Mountain High School. Students had the opportunity for open dialogue with Ms. Grandin. It was a wonderful experience for learning and motivation!
Looking Back on this Year…Unified Sports!!
Students were out having fun, spirited competition again this year with Unified Sports! In addition, our own Fort Collins High School has been nationally recognized as a Special Olympics National Unified Champion School! Congrats to FCHS, and to all of our schools in PSD who participate in Unified Sports throughout the year!
This week is National Teacher Appreciation Week, and today is National Teacher Appreciation Day! Today, this week, and always, we appreciate our Integrated Services staff!
With the utmost sincerity and respect from PSD Integrated Services Director Sarah Belleau and the Integrated Services Leadership Team, we recognize and send our gratitude to all of our staff! Although this past year had been incredibly challenging, you’ve been there for our students. YOU did it! Integrated Services staff – you have adjusted, created, persevered, and stood strong, continuing your drive to assure that all our students received the best education possible, no matter the circumstances. Thank you! You have been the light in what was for so many a dark time. You were the encouragement for many to keep going. You shined bright so that others could find their way. You have inspired with your commitment, passion, and ability to carry on. We are incredibly moved by all of you who continue to work tirelessly to provide the best programming and services for students with disabilities. We celebrate you this week (and always!) for being outstanding, motivating others, and becoming the beacon of hope to assure that the needs of students with disabilities in Poudre School District have been met.
Enjoy this week as we celebrate you! Happy Appreciation Week 😊
