White Iced Celebration


The annual White Iced Celebration in early February is our signature event celebrating public education in Mesa County. It’s an evening to honor White Iced Award recipients and Outstanding Academic Growth Schools. This elegant event welcomes community members, D51 staff, friends of the D51F, and parents. The Annual White Iced Celebration is always an inspiring evening and loads of fun!
