  • ‘It’s a great tradition’

    In the early dark, chilly hours of Easter, tens of thousands of people filed into Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre for the venue’s annual sunrise service.

    Kristin Whitney’s classroom at Wilmot Elementary doesn’t look anything like you might expect.

    Gone are the rows of desks for the fourth- and fifth-graders. In their place are a couch, high-backed chair, pillows, kitchen table with chairs, a camp chair and tall desks. There are four traditional desks congregated together with balls rather than chairs.

    Whitney’s desk is also gone because she said having her desk as the center of attention made it seem like it was her classroom when it should be the students’ classroom.

  • An egg-citing time

    Here one moment and gone the next.

    That’s the best way to explain the lightning speed at which older kids find eggs at an Easter egg hunt. For the younger ones, not so much.

    The 10th annual Easter egg hunt at the Evergreen Elks Lodge on Saturday was no exception. About 40 kids ages 8 and older took less than a minute to collect the 500 plastic eggs spread around the lodge’s back patio and place them in baskets. Then it was time to crack open the eggs to find the candy or coins inside.
