  • Important Information about Immunizations

    Immunizations are an important part of our children's and the community's health. Colorado law requires students attending a public, private or parochial school to be immunized against certain vaccine preventable diseases.

    Specifically, incoming kindergarten students and sixth graders are due for vaccines before coming back to school for the 2016-2017 school year.

    Please read this letter for kindergarten families (en español) and this letter for sixth grade families (en español).

  • Bishop Artwork Represents Colorado in Washington, D.C.
    This year, Bishop Elementary was selected to create ornaments that would represent Colorado in the Washington, D.C. President's Park tree display. The ornaments the students created were inspired by Colorado objects and colors, as well as the Chihuly exhibit that was at the Denver Botanic Gardens last year. Some staff members from Bishop were able to attend the tree lighting ceremony last week and got photos of the ornaments in action. Great job, Bishop!
    To see a photo album of the creation and display of the ornaments, visit our Facebook page

    Health Updates: Information about flu season and Enterovirus D68 



    Flu season is just around the corner in Colorado! There is no way to predict in advance how severe flu activity will be so prevention is the best strategy to stay healthy. The single best way to avoid getting influenza is to get vaccinated each year. Annual influenza vaccination is recommended for all persons aged 6 months and older, who do not have a contraindication to the vaccine. Most health insurance companies (including Medicaid) cover the cost of getting a flu vaccine so families with health insurance can go to your in-network health care provider to receive a vaccine at no cost.  Many pharmacies will bill your insurance and not charge a fee for flu vaccine (check with your local pharmacy). If you are uninsured, or your insurance won’t cover vaccines, or you have Medicaid or Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+), you can call Tri-County Health Department at 303-451-0123 to be vaccinated in one of their clinics. You can also visit to find flu shot clinics near you.

    Enterovirus D68

    The following link takes you to the CDC website and contains general information and recommendations about Enterovirus D68:

    How can I protect myself?

    • Avoid close contact with sick people
    • Wash your hands often with soap & water
    • Cover Your coughs and sneezes
    • Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands
    • Clean and disinfect surfaces
    • Stay home when you’re sick

  • Aquaponics  aquaponics

    Bishop's Aquaponics System 

    This summer with funds from the 21st Century Community Learning Centers Grant, Bishop Elementary installed an aquaponics system in its community garden.

    Aquaponics is a food production system that combines conventional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as snails, fish, crayfish or prawns in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. (Wikipedia)

    The aquaponics system is being used at Bishop in the 21st CCLC program by incorporating science and math with hands on, project-based learning all while growing food for one of their after school clubs. 
    Watch this video for a fun explanation of how aquaponics works.
