Monthly Parent Coffee & Chat

Student in class

At Green Valley Elementary, we strive to ensure that we partner with our parents, and community members. We know that by working together, academic achievement occurs for our students, and your child.

We invite you to take part in our monthly Parent Coffee Chat! In an effort to serve and connect our Spanish-speaking audience, we make sure to provide you with simultaneous Spanish interpretation. 

Please know that other language interpreters can be arranged upon previous requests. Please contact Mrs. Jessica Hernandez, our Family Liaison for more information at 720-424-6738.

During these monthly one-hour chats, we listen to your opinions, thoughts, and ideas on how to further improve our school. We also keep you updated on the progress of initiatives that are being implemented at Green Valley. Topics in the past have included school uniform policies, staffing changes, our reading program, and curriculum!


Virtually until further notice via Zoom or Google Meet. The link for each meeting will be shared with each family via personal email the morning of the Coffee Chat.
