    SCHOOL CHOICE WINDOW NOW OPEN

    Through the Public Schools of Choice Law passed in the early 1990s, families have the right to enroll their children in any school, for any reason. If there is room in a preferred Pueblo School District 60 school, and transportation is not an issue, students are welcome: regardless of residency and other factors. In the fall, the District will welcome new buildings for Centennial and East high schools, Sunset Park Elementary and Franklin School of Innovation, and a brand-new institution: Nettie S. Freed K-8 Expeditionary. The School Choice “lottery window” is now open, giving D60 parents the best chance of winning a seat for their child or children in the school of choice.

    ALUMNI ROLL CALL: SOUTH COLT TRENT JOHNSON'S CREATIONS A KEY PART OF POPULAR “YELLOWSTONE” SERIES

    Although his name might not be as immediately recognizable as Kevin Costner, Cole Hauser or Kelly Ryley, Trent Johnson is as much a part of the popular “Yellowstone” series as its stars. Trent, who attended Highland Park and Roncalli before graduating from South High School in 1990, is the owner of Greeley Hat Works, whose origin dates back to 1909. Perhaps most famously, the hats worn by Governor John Dutton and his family, ranch hand Rip Wheeler and the rest of the “Yellowstone” entourage – are the results of Trent’s latest foray into the world of television and movie costuming.
