Posted May 16, 2024

Hello 8th grade Families, please take some time to read through the below end of year updates.

As a reminder students CANNOT participate in the field trips/activities AND the Continuation Ceremony if they are not ON TRACK/eligible. If you are unsure of your students current eligibility status please call 720-423-9600 or email us at

TONIGHT is the John F. Kennedy HS Welcome Freshman Night. Swing by anytime from 5:30-7:00 to meet the staff, build your schedule for next year and learn about all the different sports and clubs you can participate in!


  • If you have not yet completed the required Google Consent form, please do so ASAP, please note there are 6 sections as this form covers ALL the excursion info/permissions needed.
  • If your child does not have a Elitch Season Pass, please send $25 cash/check (made payable to BVIS) ASAP to buy their discounted day pass. We can also take credit cards in-person or over the phone.
  • We are still looking for donations to help support all the costs involved in celebrating these deserving scholars.  If you haven’t already and are in a capacity to support, please click HERE for our GoFundMe!
