|A Message from Mr. Spencer on Social Media
|As of recently, we are learning that social media and cell phone usage play a huge role in how our students talk about and engage in negative talk and behaviors. We know that social media is being used to spread disrespectful messages about our student body. Please be aware of your child’s usage and engagement on social media platforms such as Facebook, Snapchat, TikTok, Instagram, and personal messenger. We are asking you to have a conversation with your child in regards to not gossiping, not participating, passing, or engaging in any conversations surrounding negative behaviors or events that can arise in the world of our students. As a parent I would encourage you to check your child's phone regularly at this age to ensure they are making healthy decisions.
Our goal at Strive Federal is to ensure that all students have the right to feel respected, be heard, feel safe, and supported by caring adults. In order for this to happen we all have to continue to work together as a community in all aspects of our student’s educational experience. Please never hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns that you feel we can support you on.

|October Count Day & School Funding
|Colorado’s official October Count Day is Friday, October 1, 2021. It is very important for your student to attend school that day. We receive funding for each student who is present on Count Day. This is the main way our schools are funded, which means your student’s attendance that day pays for teachers, social workers, nurses, books, sports, Chromebooks, classroom materials, field trips, and much more. Here is more information on Colorado Per-Pupil Funding.
