Celebrations and thanks 
On behalf of Denver Public Schools and Kunsmiller Creative Arts Academy (KCAA) we would like to extend our sincere appreciation for all of you who support this school and this community. Whereas we can find many different areas that may need improvement, sometimes we forget to celebrate our accomplishments and achievements. Many of these events happen each day but may be known only to smaller immediate parties.  Today we are hoping to change the narrative. In recent events KCAA students and staff have embarked upon several activities and events that we are tremendously proud of. Some of these celebrations demonstrate the spirit of our community that also highlights and celebrates the diversity of our culture (our school's and our individual culture) while uniting our school and community. 



Kunsmiller Creative Arts Academy (KCAA) has a few upcoming celebrations: Cinco de Mayo, our middle school talent show, thespian awards for our talented troupe, Teacher Appreciation Week, and secondary arts showcases. (See our calendar for details.)  In addition, there's the ritual of graduations where our students will mark important transitions from kindergarten into the rest of grade school, from fifth-grade child to young adult, from middle school young person to teen, and teen to graduating adult. 
I hope parents join our school, our students, and our teachers to celebrate these important events and milestones that display our culture, our school culture, and our students' talents and achievements. I know I'm excited to see this community come together in celebration. - Dr. Anthony McWright, KCAA Principal.
