Superintendents help celebrate reading

       Bristol Elementary had 13 guest readers, including District 11 Superintendent Terry Bishop and Deputy Superintendent Mary Thurman, at its annual Celebrate Reading Day March 20.
       Traditionally following days of Colorado Student Assessment Program (CSAP) testing, Celebrate Reading provides an experience that's “fun and educational,” according to Bristol librarian Joan Grant.
       The Colorado High School Activities Association has recognized the Coronado High girls swimming and diving team as 5-A academic team champions. The team had a combined, non-weighted GPA of 3.79 - the highest combined GPA of all 5-A girls swim teams in the state.
       This is Coronado's third Academic Team State Championship. Girls track won in 1998 and girls basketball in 1999.
