Tiger News
October 6, 2023

Our 6th Grade Teachers served hot lunch to 6th grade students as a prize for our fundraiser! The students LOVED getting special treatment…and LOVED admiring Mr. Rebbeck’s beard hammock 🙂

Hello Tiger Families!


You all have donated over $25,000 to benefit our PTO and school. This is UNBELIEVABLE! We are so lucky to have such supportive parents!

And…to make things even more interesting…we are introducing a “bump” goal as one last push for support! Mr. Harris has agreed to deliver his best rendition of Let It Go from Frozen (including a Frozen costume) if we reach $28,000. Why $28,000? Because $3,000 more will pay for BRAND NEW science tables for Mr. Harris’s room which is something he has been requesting for several years. We’d LOVE to be able to support this funding through a PTO allocation request.

Also, be sure to check out our new Erie Middle School Spirit Store linked below! We have some fun new gear that we think students and parents will love…I mean, who doesn’t love sweatpants?! The store is open until October 22nd, so be sure to get your order in.

Have a good weekend,

Thank you to our EMS Sponsor of the Week!

Extended Absences: Please notify the school at least 2 weeks prior to any extended absences (over 3 consecutive days) via our Google form. You and your student will also need to sign off on our “Extended Absence Form” located in our front office. This form helps students and parents understand how to communicate with teachers and make up schoolwork after the absence.

Per board policy, if a student is absent 10 days excused or not, absences will begin to be marked “unexcused” unless previously noted and approved by school administration or there is a doctor’s note provided to the school.

Please provide the school with a note from the doctor, orthodontist, dentist, therapist, or any appointment each time you go.

If you know your student will be absent, tardy or checking out of school please fill out this Google form.


We know it is a busy time for families and sometimes you forget to order pictures on picture day. If you forgot to order, we have great news. Families can now order their student portraits on mylifetouch.com using their student ID number.

Medical Technology STEM Program

The YWCA has an amazing opportunity on Monday, October 16 from 12:30pm-4pm at Medtronic’s new campus in Lafayette.  This is a partnership program with the YWCA with a lens toward middle school girls and girls of color.  But all interested students are welcome. 

The program is underwritten so it is free for all students.  It falls on a day that students in SVVSD are off, so it is helpful for parents looking for an enriching and fun experience. 

Here is the link for registration: https://www.ywcaboulder.org/stem-e3/

Here are a few of the amazing things the girls will get to do:

Students will learn about laparoscopic surgery during this activity through use of a laparoscopic trainer box. They will hear about the different advanced bipolar devices (LigaSure Vessel Sealers) used in laparoscopic surgery and made by the Medtronic Lafayette campus. Students will work together in groups of two to achieve a task, such as coordinating movements to move colored pegs around a peg board, while looking at a camera to navigate the hidden space.”

The navigation demos will cover cranial and spine surgery with and without a robot.  Students will learn how we “map” the current location of the surgeon’s tools to images (MRIs and CTs) to enable them to see how their actions impact the patient.  We will also demonstrate how we use a robot in spine surgery to help the surgeon be as accurate as possible.

The robotic demo will cover how our surgical robot controls its 4 arms during an operation. Students will have an opportunity to play a jack game with the help of 3D glasses.

Students will learn the basics of what pulse oximetry is, gain a high-level understanding of how we measure it and what it means, and what sensors Medtronic offers.
