The WSD3 Preschool Program is an inclusive program that serves children with special needs, children with identified risk factors, and children that pay tuition to attend. Children must be 3 or 4 years old by Oct. 1, 2014 to attend. We fill the program from our waiting list. When a slot becomes available we will notify you and then you may register your child online or at North Preschool. Unfortunately, due to limited space, your online registration will be denied unless your child has been put on our waiting list and we have contacted you to guarantee your child's slot. Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to hearing from you!

Creating PBIS Expectations
One of the first steps each building takes in creating their unique PBIS system is to create expectations for all students. Staff will decide what the most important rules or expectations are in their building in order to create a culture of positive behavior in the school.
WideField of Dreams - AJ Vacik
Drum roll please…introducing the one, the only, AJ Vacik! AJ is an 8th grader at Watson Junior High and an award winning drummer/percussionist. AJ not only plays on the junior high jazz band, but he is also the first 8th grader to play on the Mesa Ridge High School drum line. During the summer, AJ received a scholarship to the University of Northern Colorado Jazz Camp to learn and play with mostly high school students from across the United States. He was the only featured soloist in the large group performance at the conclusion of the weeklong event. AJ is also a rockingí student, taking all AP classes this year and doing very well. His dream is study music in college, perhaps teach music, and of course one day be in a successful band.
