Kicking off Another School Year with ACES Ed

Posted in Kids' Corner

The end of the summer and beginning of a new school year is a time of great excitement and transition for all. Students check their supply lists, learn their new teachers names and get new outfits for the biggest day of the school year. Here in the Roaring Fork Valley, ACES education team is also embarking on a new school year, gearing up for an exciting year in our classrooms. As teachers and students get to know each other during the first weeks of school, new bonds are formed and the energy is tangible.

Life Lists of One Kind or Another | A Tribute to Dr. Dick Beidleman

Posted in Bulletin Board

It is with great sadness that I learned of the passing of Dr. Richard Beidleman.  Dick, as we all knew him by, taught at ACES for about three decades, living at the Hodgson Professor House at Hallam Lake during the weeks he was teaching. With the same ease as he made life lists of birds, he also made a Professor House list for me every summer. It was basically a list of things that needed my attention and I believe Dick made such lists most everywhere he went – he just cared that much about the places where he worked and about the natural world he inhabited.
