On April 11, 2017, all sophomores and juniors in Colorado will be taking the PSAT 10 and SAT at their home schools. The good news? It’s free! AND you don’t have to do a thing to register. But wait … there’s more! Millions of dollars in scholarships (yes, millions…) are tied to both assessments, so even if you’re not 100% sure about your after-high-school plans, still use this time to prepare just in case - they’re there anyways, might as well get the most you can out of it!
As the lights slowly dim and the curtain begins to open the cast knows, it’s show time. Students at Frederick High have spent the past few months practicing lines, building and painting sets, organizing costumes and mastering the precision of each dance step. On Thursday, November 3 you will feel the excitement, see the hours of preparation and watch in anticipation as the outstanding cast brings the stage to life in the fall musical, Beauty and the Beast.
This summer, Frederick High School's athletic teams are learning teamwork, perseverance and dedication on and off the court by giving back to their local community. Several student-athletes spent a day running drills, but not the typical drills they are used to practicing. Our students helped revitalize a home in Dacono through Habitat for Humanity.
