James Irwin among 15 new charter schools in Colorado

The mural of an astronaut walking on the moon was painted many years ago, but was the perfect hallway decor for the very first day for the new James Irwin Charter Academy. The building used to house Jefferson Elementary School, one of eight elementary schools closed by D-11 in 2009. Kindergartener Tatiana Jackson is walked down the hall by her grandmother, Billie Stokes, after school on Monday, August 26, 2013. James Irwin was astronaut who was the eighth person to walk on the moon.  (The Gazette/Jerilee Bennett)
