As your superintendent I would like to welcome each of you to our beautiful Cañon City community!

In the Fremont RE-1 School District we continually strive to provide each child with excellent education opportunities so they can experience Learning for Life.

Our mission is to develop compassionate, responsible, independent, and productive citizens by providing a quality education to our students in a safe environment for everyone.  

How are we doing this? We begin by attracting, supporting, growing, and retaining the most outstanding child centered employees.  We know THE difference maker in each child’s school life will be the people they come into contact with each and every day.

Add to this the fact that we provide our families with numerous choices when it comes to selecting a learning setting and instructional methods that will work for their children.  We do this by offering traditional academically rigorous school programs as well as STEM, exploratory, and core knowledge learning opportunities, topped off with an outstanding high school that has a focus on educating the whole child through the core subjects, outstanding vocational programs, great extracurricular activities, and a special emphasis on the visual and performing arts. 

We encourage you to join our learning community and I want to personally invite you to follow our progress as I report on district happenings on weekly basis at the following link: http://echoesfromcanon.weebly.com
