Four PSD schools celebrate milestone anniversaries this school year!

Schools have long been the cornerstones of communities where students, staff and families gather. From a log cabin with two students in 1866 to Colorado’s ninth largest school district in 2022, Poudre School District continues to grow and add to its long history.  

Each PSD school has a unique story that reaches across generations and touches many lives over the years. PSD is proud to recognize schools celebrating major milestones and anniversaries.

Congratulations to these four schools celebrating milestone anniversaries in the 2022-23 school year:
