History of Bauder
Bauder originally opened in 1969 and is named after long-time Poudre School District music teacher, Katharyn Bauder. The school was remodeled in 1992 and 2006. In 2010, Moore Elementary School closed and merged with Bauder increasing its enrollment.
The building itself is one of the largest elementary schools in the district. At its height, Bauder once had 700 students roaming the hallways. With the recent merger, Bauder currently has a more manageable enrollment of just over 500 students.
