Anthony Wilson on CHILL

 
 2014030595131509
 
Anthony Wilson (6th grade) was one of the participants of the CHILL snowboarding program at AWCPA.  This year, the local CHILL Manager, Randy George, was able to take one of the Colorado youth to Vail before the US Open to snowboard, meet Jake Burton (the founder of Burton Boards), as well as several of the members of the professional Burton Snowboard Team, and speak about how CHILL impacted his life.
 
Randy said that Anthony did an amazing job.  While he was snowboarding, he was hitting jumps, hit the mini half-pipe, and hit two rails.  He was did an amazing job with his speech.  He got a standing ovation and cheers from some of the best snowboarders in the world, and got immediate high fives from Jake Burton, and professional snowboarders Kevin Pearce, and Tim Ossler.  He represented AWCPA well, and was definitely a SHARP Spartan.
 
Way to go Anthony!
 
Below is a copy of his statement:
 
 
 

CHILL Snowboarding

2014-02-23 12.30.33

 

CHILL started in Vermont through Burton Boards, and is in its 10th season in Denver. The Mission of The Chill Foundation is to provide opportunities to at-risk and underserved youth to build self-esteem and life skills through board sports.  This is a free learn to snowboard program for underserved youth ages 10-18.  Burton provides all of the gear for free, and Loveland Ski Resort provided instructors, and lessons for free for six weeks on Sundays.  The students rode to Loveland on a Coach bus with the other Colorado youth that participated in the program.  During the bus ride, the students were participated in weekly activities that focused on the weekly theme, which were patience, persistence, responsibility, respect, courage, and pride.  

 

 

Mon National Day

100000000000019800000132DFD79D41

 

On February 15th, several of our students participated in Mon National day, and some of our staff came to enjoy the festivities.

Today, Mon people around the world wholeheartedly celebrate the 67th Anniversary of Mon National
Day in honor of the founding day of Mon Kingdom, Hongsawatoi (Pegu). The kingdom was founded by the two Mon princes, Samala and Wimala on the 1sr Wane of Maik (11rh month of Mon Lunar calendar) in 1116 B.E (573A.D). On this historic day, we urge Mons around the world to be united and work together for the Mon national cause.

The Hunger Games

All of the 7th grade is reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. They are learning about culture in the novel and connecting it to themselves as we all read it. We are also using the identity of the characters to help students write about their own identities in narratives. “May the odds be ever in your favor!”
