March newsletter Guadalupe Elementary Congreso de Acequias poster contest winners: Congrats to our students who competed agains other regional schools for this competition!   Kynsley Cordova - 1st Place  Kalises Cuellar - 2nd Place  Santana Salas - 3rd Place   Bailee Bradley - 1st Place  Celestino Archuleta - 3rd Place   Delilah Cuellar - 2nd Place Superintendent’s Update: Chronic absence takes a significant toll on the academic success and well-being of students. When students are chronically absent, they not only miss out on valuable classroom instruction, but also opportunities to forge relationships with peers and school staff and gain access to resources available at school.  Story time. Sometimes just showing up is half the battle. This makes me think of a conversation I had with a great American. He was my supervisor, and I had just arrived to work. This one morning, I was exhausted. I had a lot of homework the night before, so I was up late. I was telling him how tired I was and that I really didn't want to go to the gym that morning, but I did anyway. He then shared this quote with me from Woody Allen: "Ninety percent of success in life is just showing up." He also said, "Even if you aren't motivated to show up, it's okay; the motivation will come later." This very simple conversation has stayed with me for 25 years. The moral of the story is to show up, and you may surprise yourself. I do want to thank Alamosa High School for taking me back through memory lane as they have Woody Allen's quote on their marquee. Let's go Trojan Crew, you got this! Trojans...All In, All the Time!  - Joshua Lopez / Superintendent, South Conejos School District RE-10
Field Experiences Antonito Middle School science Fair Antonito middle schoolers recently showcased their scientific prowess from Ms. Mestas’ class at the prestigious science fair hosted at Adams State University. With a diverse array of topics ranging from plant science to the intriguing effects of music on heart rate, these young scientists captivated audiences and judges alike with their innovative projects. The fair not only provided a platform for students to demonstrate their scientific acumen but also fostered collaboration and intellectual exchange among budding researchers from different schools and backgrounds.  For Antonito middle schoolers, the science fair at Adams State University served as a transformative experience, igniting their passion for exploration and discovery. Through rigorous experimentation and analysis, students explored the intricacies of biological systems and the impact of external stimuli on human physiology. Their participation not only exemplifies the importance of hands-on science education but also underscores the vital role of institutions like Adams State University in nurturing the next generation of scientific leaders and innovators. High School Redesign - NYC Visit A group of 9 high school students were nominated and applied  to serve on our High School Redesign team led by Mrs. Mansheim which will focus on recreating the high school courses to challenge students and better prepare them for post-secondary success. As part of the team, students got to visit bright spot Expeditionary Learning schools in NYC and gather ideas of what they want to bring back to Antonito. Students also got to visit Central Park and Times Square.  Students decided they wanted to bring back more engagement and hands-on learning projects to the high school level, create new crew lessons, add more mixed classrooms, and expand field experiences that connect to their learning in the classroom.
