Crestone Charter School

The Crestone Charter School is culminating a specific, momentous journey of seeing the completion of a new, permanent School building. The official ribbon cutting ceremony was held on the first day of school Tuesday September 4, 2012. Heralded by Shumei's Taiko Drummers, students, teachers and families were joined by out-of-town guests and helpers from the League of Charter Schools, the Colorado Department of Education, DSI Construction and the offices of Harry Teague Architects to share in the celebration and witness the ribbon cutting. Slicing through that ribbon, which represented a profound milestone in the School's seventeen year history, was it's first graduating class of the new building. When the Colorado Department of Education announced it would begin a special capital construction effort under the "BEST" (Building Excellent Schools Today) department in August 2008 the CCS community mobilized to apply for a grant in the Spring 2009 funding cycle.
