Congratulations!
 
The Early Learning Center of Ouray is happy to announce that we have received our Colorado Shines rating and we have earned a Level 4 (Level 5 is the highest)! When we started this process more than 2.5 years ago, we were at a Level 1. Our program quality has improved greatly over the course of the last few years, thanks to dedicated staff, administrative support, and our fantastic group of parents.
 
I want to thank all of you for supporting us in many ways, such as making schedule changes to accommodate the needs of our youngest students, attending CPP meetings and parent education nights, filling out family surveys, ensuring low staff turnover by providing adequate funding, cooking and serving excellent food, and coming to classroom and school wide events.
 
Now that we have received this rating, the process will repeat once every three years. In the meantime, we will continue to work together as a team to improve our program in order to ensure our little ones are ready for Kindergarten with a solid foundation of social-emotional as well as academic skills.
 
Thank you all for your support!
At the speech meet this weekend here is how it came out. Ella 1st Original Oratory , Joy 5th Poetry, Caeley 7th Informative Speaking, 12th Creative Storytelling Sadie, 17th Nisha Drama.
 
It was another competitive meet and our team did really well. Great job!
It was held Saturday, January 28th in Delta. The speech team is doing so well and each person is really doing a personal best at each meet. It is so much fun to see the growth of everyone. Nisha had her very first meet! Sadie had her best scores and reviews ever. Caeley competed in informative speaking for the first meet ever and did so well. Joy performed so well even though she did not feel 100% she gave everything she had and it showed. Ella has been working hard spending time on her piece and she nailed it.
 
Great job team! I am so very proud of you. Keep working hard! Montrose meet is this coming weekend.

The Knowledge Bowl teams competed in Telluride yesterday for the league championship.  Our Middle School A team  (Rock, Hayden, Pal, Colin) battled it out in the top room all night and (scoring 17 points in one round) emerged with the third place trophy.  The MS B team (Mary Jane, Luna, and Riley) placed 12th out of 18 teams.  It was a lucrative season for the middle school.  They brought home a trophy from every tournament.
 
On the high school side, our A team (Cooper, Evan, Mackenzie, and Aaron) convincingly re-captured the league title with a 30 point margin of victory over Telluride and the other schools in the league.  Congratulations for an awesome performance.  Our B team (Ry, Beth, Alannah, and Nathalie) found themselves in third place with one round to go.  In the final round, competing against our own A team and T-ride, they held their own.  In the end, they were barely leap-frogged by Ridgway - ending up fourth.   Our C team (Kallie, Joy, and Georgia) ended up 9th out of 12 teams.
 
Congratulations to our excellent students!  I am lucky to get to watch them and marvel at their intelligence and character.  Thank you all for your help in developing these fine people.
 
The League Championship competition will return to Ouray next year in January.....where it belongs!!!  On to State.
