Welcome Letter

Dear Blue Jay Community!

The 2021-22 school year provides a unique opportunity to start fresh with a renewed sense of commitment, passion, and excitement for education.  Here Comes The Sun- the song from the famous band the Beatles captures the essence for our district this year.  

The Mancos School District provides a unique, relevant, and meaningful educational opportunity to prepare our students to be successful in life.  We are a Project Based Learning (PBL) community.  When students have authentic educational opportunities through Project Based Learning, with trained teacher support, they learn, thrive, and grow into productive and happy young adults. PBL creates deep content knowledge, critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication skills that are commonly characterized as 21st Century Learning Skills.  PBL unleashes a contagious, creative energy among students and teachers that promotes meaningful long-term learning.  At Mancos School District, we harness learning into a customized academic and career plan that allows each student to reach their full potential. 

The Mancos School District is made up of caring and hardworking individuals with a deep desire to create a distinctive and enriching school environment.  In order to be a world class learning institution, it will take all of us investing our very best for our students. As a united school family, treating each other in a friendly, caring, and supportive way produces the positive and supportive school culture reputation that Mancos School District has earned over the years. 

Through our thoughtful planning and excellence in the classrooms, extraordinary students, and engaged parents: I believe we can be the best school district in Colorado for the 2021-22 school year and beyond. For these reasons and more, I am excited for growth of your children and the development of the Mancos School District. As I continue to meet with staff, parents, and the community, I am assured that we are a fully commited team in the academic, social, and emotional growth of every Bluejay. If you would like to meet in-person or by phone, please contact me at 970-533-7746 or tcordrey@mancosre6.edu for an appointment.
