Parents of 5th Graders Attending Sproul Next School Year:
Please join us for our 1st annual Parent Playground onfrom . Come meet the Sproul Staff, step into the lives of a middle school student by attending mini sessions, and then end the night with a question and answer session with the Sproul administration team. This will be a fun way to learn something new and experience the special place that is Sproul Junior High. (No students or children, please.)
The innovative arts-integrated curriculum at Widefield Elementary nurtures and challenges the whole child—nourishing the intellectual, social, emotional, physical, and artistic development of each student. Widefield students achieve academic excellence as they develop a lifelong love of learning.
Through music, art, theatre, and creative movement, our teachers make classroom learning come alive. The school's highly trained arts specialists provide concentrated instruction in drama and music, fine art, and dance. The arts specialists also collaborate with the classroom teachers to integrate arts into the core curriculum, resulting in flexible and creative thinkers, ready to succeed in school and beyond.

Student Internet Access Policy Change for 2015-16
Dear Parents and Guardians,
The Widefield School District desires for your student to have an information rich education. We believe this requires all students to have access to the Internet at school. Our board policy regarding the Internet has changed to reflect this philosophy. Under the new Board Policy JS-Student Use of Internet Electronic Communication, we no longer require parent permission before we will let your student access the Internet at school on a school owned device. Instead, we expect that students will use the Internet unless you as the parent/gaurdian explicitly and annually submit the Annual Internet Opt-Out Form (See Board Policy JS-E) and return it to your student’s school.

Opt Out Form
Questions regarding this policy may be directed to me, Keith Mann, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling my office at (719) 391-3023.
