Schools celebrate milestone anniversaries this school year

Poudre School District’s history stretches back more than 100 years when, in 1866, a young widow moved to Fort Collins and began teaching her son and another student in a log cabin on the military post. Since those humble beginnings, PSD has swelled to a school district serving some 30,000 students across more than 50 schools. 

This year, several of those schools are celebrating significant milestones in their history. Take a look at the following list and join us in wishing these schools a happy birthday!
