In case you missed them during the Homecoming Parade, check out these colorful Commerce City snow plows!
For more than 20 years, Adams City High School students in the visual arts program have gone on a field trip each year to paint the blades of the city’s snow plows. The Commerce City Police Department transports the students to the Commerce City Public Works building, and the city pays for lunch and all the art supplies.
Students divide into groups and create a design incorporating elements from everyone’s ideas. From there, they start drawing the design on the plow using chalk and then paint it.
The snow plow artwork first appears during the Homecoming Parade and is an amazing way to showcase our students’ talent and creativity.
Keep an eye out for the snow plows during our first few snow storms of the winter season. You might still catch our students’ artwork!

October Count day is Oct. 2, 2023
What is October Count Day? October Count Day is a statewide initiative that determines the amount of funding our school receives from the state government. On this specific day, we record the number of students who are in attendance. This count directly impacts our school's budget for the entire academic year.
Why Your Child's Attendance Matters? The number of students present on October Count Day directly affects the financial resources we receive. This funding supports various aspects of your child's education, including classroom materials, technology, extracurricular activities, and more.
Adequate funding allows us to maintain a high standard of education. It enables us to provide quality teachers, smaller class sizes, and a wide range of educational opportunities to benefit your child's learning experience.
What You Can Do?
- Mark Your Calendar: Please mark Oct. 2 on your calendar as a day of high importance. Ensure that your child attends school on this date unless they are ill or facing extenuating circumstances.
- Promote Attendance: Encourage your child to attend school regularly, not only on October Count Day but throughout the entire academic year. Consistent attendance is vital for their academic progress.
- Spread the Word: Inform fellow parents and guardians about the significance of October Count Day and the impact it has on our school. Together, we can maximize our funding potential.
During its regular meeting on Sept. 12, the Adams 14 Board of Education celebrated National Hispanic Heritage Month.
The annual celebration takes place between Sept. 15-Oct.15 each year. During this time, we honor and celebrate the histories, cultures, and contributions of Americans whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.
Adams 14 leadership recognizes the importance of preserving the linguistic and cultural assets of students through bilingual and dual language instruction, and our Seal of Biliteracy program, as well as honoring the backgrounds of our students from Spanish-speaking households.
