Dear Roadrunner Families,
It is hard to believe that we are coming to the end of another year at Aspen. It has truly been a joy working with our students and families here and being a part of this amazing Roadrunner Community. I thank you all for your dedication to our students and your support of our school and our programs. Although I move on to new challenges and adventures in retirement, Aspen will always hold a special place in my heart.
Please join me in welcoming your new Aspen Principal, Mrs. Mae Joaquin Tietjen. Mrs. Tietjen comes to Aspen from Sequoia Middle school where she has been serving as the Vice Principal. I know you will welcome her with open arms as you did for me when I first arrived.
We must bid farewell to our Aspen 5th grade students. They have enriched and brightened our campus with their creativity and leadership skills. We will miss them as they move on the middle school, but I know that Aspen has provided them with a sound foundation that will enable them to be successful in their educational future.
I wish you all a relaxing and fun summer. The school office will open again on Monday, August 6th. The new school year begins Wednesday, August 22, 2018.

5th Grade Mural Update (located in the garden area by the 3rd Grade classrooms!)
The 5th grade classes are leaving behind a gift to Aspen...check out the mural drawn and painted by Mr Bob Noonan from Studio 316! It’s really coming along & looks amazing! The mural is the lifecycle of a butterfly in the 3rd grade garden. Many of the students helped to create and maintain this garden a couple of years ago! Big thanks to Mrs Golem for approving this request and Mrs Byington for your assistance in designing the mural! A big thank you to all the 5th Grade families that have donated! We are still a bit short, so if you haven’t donated and would still like to do so, please give your donation to your 5th grade teacher! Thank you!
Collecting Boxtops is an easy way for Aspen to earn money. We earn $0.10 for every Boxtop so keep on clipping and collecting! Collection sheets can be found in the Boxtops drawer in the front office.
PFA NEEDS YOU!
PFA needs you to assist in making our children’s educational experience the best it can be!! PFA is staffed entirely by parent volunteers and we are in need of additional parent volunteers for the 2018-2019 school year.
