 OPEN HOUSE was the most successful one we've had in terms of attendance. Principal, Alain Henry opened with an introduction then released the parents to meet with the teachers. He wrapped things up by showing everyone what they can see in the coach role in Project Foundry. The parents who attended received their login. We will mail out the Project Foundry information and login to those parents who were unable to attend.

Durango Big Picture High School will be hosting an Open House on Wednesday, September 16th; from 6:00 - 7:00 PM. Come meet your student's advisor and other teachers. We will be explaining how to access your student's progress on both infinite Campus and Project Fountry which will allow you to track his or her progress on both workshops and projects. Project Foundry is a new web-based project management tool that helps students and advisors stay on top of tasks and due dates. 

We hope you can make it!
