Mission Statement Havern School provides a specialized education program for elementary and middle school students with diagnosed learning disabilities. Utilizing a 4:1 student to staff ratio, master teachers, occupational therapists, and speech/language pathologists provide a comprehensive program of intervention services. Our ultimate goal is to create conﬁdent learners who will achieve success beyond Havern School. Havern School is a nationally recognized community of professionals, parents, families, and friends working together to address the individual academic, social, and emotional needs of our students.1 We believe in a child’s ability to learn.
Our 44 th school year was marked by an important milestone with the accreditation of Havern Schoolby the Association of Colorado Independent Schools (ACIS). Realization of thislong term goal was achieved through the focused work of the entire schoolcommunity – administrators, faculty, parents, trustees and students! The journeythrough the accreditation process allowed for celebration of the school’s manystrengths, including: • A long and stable history • A strong and consistent mission and program • Highly skilled teachers and therapists • A supportive and committed parent community • Our debt free ﬁnancial positionWhile we are proud of these ﬁne attributes, our greatest reasons for celebration are the successfullearning experiences of our students. Nothing can compare to the joy of listening as a child reads forthe ﬁrst time or watching as a student navigates her way up the climbing wall, overcoming personalfears and obstacles.These joyful celebrations, big and small, are made possible by the gifts of energy, time, talent andﬁnancial resources given by many friends and benefactors of Havern School. On behalf of the studentsand teachers I offer a collective “thank you” for your generous support. You are appreciated!Cathleen PasquarielloHead of School 2

Dear Friends of Havern, New technology is everywhere these days-our ofﬁces, our homes, and even our classrooms. But as wonderful as these tools can be, they are only an accessory to what really makes up Havern School. At Havern School, Smart Boards may be new technology but they are also a long standing tradition. I have the honor to serve with a diverse, accomplished, and, well, Smart Board of Trustees who volunteer their time and so much more to fulﬁll the school’s mission. Theirleadership is invaluable in maintaining our current program and looking to the school’s future.Even with all of the advanced technology available, a classroom still needs ateacher. And Havern School is blessed with a dedicated and talented teachingand administrative staff. This year was the culmination of a lot of hard workby this exceptional group and resulted in Havern School being accredited bythe Association of Colorado Independent Schools. Quite an accomplishment!Technology is helpful and exciting, and at times even inspiring. But it stillcomes down to people - special people like you - working and giving in waysgreat and small, to make Havern School a place of success for our students.Thanks for your continued support,Denise SmallChair, Board of Trustees 4
