State Capitol representative visits Northeast
Antonio Mendez, Deputy Chief of Staff for Colorado Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia, read to Northeast Elementary preschoolers on April 14. Mendez was promoting the One Book 4 Colorado program that kicked off this week statewide. After reading to the children, Mendez handed a copy of this year’s winning book, “Giraffes Can’t Dance” to each child. Books were available in both English and Spanish languages. Colorado will give out 75,000 books to preschoolers through the program.
Grim reminders at Prairie View
The Every 15 Minutes program came to Prairie View High School April 14. The two-day program, which starts with a mock fatal crash, aims to reinforce the dangers of drunken driving especially ahead of prom season. The program was made possible thanks to the support of the Brighton Fire Rescue District, Platte Valley Ambulance Service, City of Brighton and Commerce City Police Departments, Adams County Sheriff's Department and North Colorado Med Evac.
