Special Event Descriptions

(E=Elementary; M=Middle; H=High School)

SCIENCE FAIRS (E/M/H)

Science fairs are a fantastic way for students to demonstrate their knowledge/mastery of the scientific method.  But who has time to create the event?  CRI takes the work out of your hands!  From workshops for students/parents, to recruiting and training area scientists to serve as judges, to coordination of the day’s activities, to providing award ribbons and rosettes, we do it all!

 

MULTI-CULTURAL CELEBRATIONS (E/M)

The level of cultural diversity in Denver Public Schools is something to be celebrated.  And celebrate we do.  These events include activities and performances from around the world – such as Japanese origami, African drumming, Mexican dancing, Australian culture, Chinese calligraphy, Irish Step Dance and much, much more.  All activities expand the students’ knowledge and appreciation of our various cultures.

 

SCIENCE DISCOVERY (E)

Imagine a day at your school devoted to science, where every student has the opportunity to participate in two or three exciting, engaging science activities.  The types of activities range from meeting live animals, to forensic investigations, life in space, dinosaur explorations, plant life, the science of sound, magnetism, and many other choices.  It’s a wonderful day that the students will learn from and remember.

 

CAREER EXPLORATION (E/M/H)

The world of careers available to today’s students is vast, complex and, at times, overwhelming.  Community Resources has created a variety of models of career fairs and exploration activities customized to serve students from elementary through high schools.  From a traditional career fair, to directed career engagement activities, to career field panel discussions, to “out in the field” career explorations, CRI can help students make the connection between today’s learning and tomorrow’s work.

 

COLORADO HISTORY DAY (E)

From dinosaurs to mining exploration to butter churning to Molly Brown to politics, this day is filled with opportunities for students to learn more about their state – past and present.

 

LITERATURE WORKSHOP (E)

This day is devoted to exploring various domains within the world of literature – writing, storytelling, puppetry, drama, poetry, music/lyrics and beyond.

 

DR. SEUSS BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION (E)

Volunteer readers from the community are invited to the school to share Dr. Seuss (and other) stories with students in celebration of Dr. Seuss’ birthday.  Typically held at the beginning of March, this event is fun and memorable for students, staff and volunteers alike!
