For the Safety of our Students and School, we ask that all visitors use the Front Door and CHECK IN AT THE OFFICE.

Please don’t let people in at any doors in the school – you can politely ask them to go to the front door to be buzzed in, so we can be sure that all guests can check in at the office. This is to promote the safety of all students (including your own!). Please help us do our best to protect our school.

The Teller Backpack Friends need donations and volunteers!


The Teller Backpack Friends does a phenomenal job of supporting and providing necessary items to members of the Teller Family that are in need. They collect food items, toiletries and baby products to send home with families each week, to help ensure that our scholars and their families aren’t lacking over the weekend and breaks.

Some of the items that are consistently needed are: Dollar Store sizes of peanut butter, jelly and cereal. Safeway for dried milk. They always need smaller sizes and no glass – they put it all to good use; but these requirements work best for the children. Any fruit or fresh veggies are a real treat. We have 69 people in our program They’d like to say thank you for everything our community does! All donations should be dropped off at the Backpack Room, which is on the 2nd floor, just past the office, near the elevator.

If you’d like to sign up for a volunteer shift, dates and hours that need volunteers can be found on the SignUp Genius HERE.

2nd Annual Congress Park Earth Day Festival

Think Globally, Act Locally!

Saturday April 22, 2017 1:00 to 5:00 pm

Outdoors at Capitol Heights Faith Communities

1100 Fillmore St, Denver, CO 80206

About the Festival

Congress Park Neighbors Green Team presents a free Earth Day event on Saturday, April 22, 2017 from 1 pm to 5 pm. The event is FREE and open to the public, and will be held outdoors at Capitol Heights Faith Communities on 1100 Fillmore Street. This year’s theme is “Think Globally, Act Locally!”

The Earth Day Festival is an important part of our team’s efforts as part of the Denver Sustainable Neighborhood Network. At the festival, we’ll be showcasing the projects we’ve started and recruiting volunteers to expand their reach. This is a wonderful chance for neighbors to come out and meet each other, and learn what we can each do to make an impact in our neighborhood. The festival will feature art, music and hands-on activities at exhibitor booths.

Many thanks to our Summit Sponsor, Capitol Heights Faith Communities, for providing meeting space and venue space for the festival and Green Team.
