    Evergreen Country Day School is a hidden gem
    Editor:
    Did you know we have a wonderful, independent school right here in Evergreen?
    I did not until last year. It is hard to imagine such a beautiful school in our own mountain area. It is deserving of more local news coverage. We moved here six years ago with our then-5-year-old son and spoke to many people. No one ever mentioned Evergreen Country Day. Since then, it has moved to a fabulous, inspiring facility behind Home Depot and has grown to 200-plus students.

    Signs at elementary school were informative, helpful
    Editor:
    I’ve been cogitating for a time on the “Post No Signs” directive that has appeared on the West Jeff Elementary School fence. People posted signs about community events and removed them within reasonable time after their events finished. Those signs provided a great community “bulletin board.” The signs, invariably, were well made. Nothing crude or propagandistic was placed.

    Boggs’ statements paint a distorted picture
    Editor:
    Why did I help write and sign the letter/petition to bar Jeffco Board of Education member Laura Boggs from moderating the April 30 Evergreen budget forum?
    I currently chair the Strategic Planning and Advisory Planning Committee, the Jeffco School District’s state-mandated accountability committee. This committee also functions as an advisory committee to the Jeffco school board.

    Harlem Ambassadors say thanks
    Editor:
    On March 6, the Evergreen Chamber of Commerce hosted the Harlem Ambassadors professional show basketball team for a night of high-flying slam dunks, hilarious comedy, and feel-good family entertainment.
    The Harlem Ambassadors would like to extend a special thank-you to event organizers Kris Grimshaw and Lin Browning, who planned and promoted the game.

    Residents should make donations to keep outdoor lab schools open
    Editor:
    I just read in the electronic Courier that among the other cuts proposed by Jeffco schools is the possibility of closing the two outdoor labs — Windy Peak and Mount Evans. I think that would be a tragedy for the school system.
