Following a difficult week in which Denver area schools were the target of a threat, Ashley Elementary came together as one to create a powerful symbol of love, showing the school community’s support for one another.

“I’m at awe of what kids know and how they’re navigating these feelings,” said principal Zachary Rahn. “We’ve committed to showing kindness and love moving forward, because ultimately, love will conquer hate.”

Ashley Elementary students tied colorful ribbons to the fence along the perimeter of the school, spelling out LOVE for the entire neighborhood to see. Watch this ¡Somos DPS! video to hear more from Ashley educators about the importance of leaning on one another, especially during scary times.
