The Mancos School District RE-6 rescheduled its open house event for March 10.
The event is returning after a hiatus last year and will take place in the elementary school’s cafeteria and gymnasium from 5 to 8 pm.
The district has taken pride in its switch to a project-based learning model, and the open house will serve as a platform for those efforts, as well as science fair projects, to be viewed by the community.
An excerpt from the event’s press release reads: “Our ability to remain open to in-person learning this year has been challenging, and it has taken a lot of dedication, extra and unfamiliar duties, and tremendous flexibility from our students and staff to adapt. Our Open House is an opportunity to shine a light on the great work they have done, in spite of challenges faced. It is not only a celebration of learning, but also resilience.”
The event was originally scheduled for Jan. 20 but was postponed when the district cited COVID-19 concerns amid the prevalence of the omicron variant.
“It’s really a celebration of learning for our school,” Ed Whritner, assistant secondary principal and director of project-based learning for the district, previously said.
The event is open to anyone in the region, he said.
