Teacher Appreciation Day


Teachers — today is your day!  Join us on the mountain so we can honor you for your commitment to our children.

And it’s not just for teachers.  Anyone who works for a school in La Plata County is invited.  So if you are a cafeteria worker, bus driver, janitor, or administrator, you are invited too!

Big thanks to our generous sponsors of this event:  Bank of Colorado and Office Depot!Bank of Colorado image
