DCSD High Schools Fly High at Spirit Competition

DCSD high schools excelled at the State Spirit Competition on Friday, December 5th and Saturday, December 6th.  The teams’ hard work and attention to detail paid off in almost every category. 

The 5A State Championship in Cheer was captured by Rock Canyon High School.  Douglas County came in a very close second place, and Chaparral rounded out the group by taking third place.

Castle View High School won 4A/5A Co-ed Cheer.  Mountain Vista finished second and ThunderRidge came in third to sweep this competition.

The Hip-Hop State Championship was won by a talented Mountain Vista High School.

Chaparral High School triumphed as state champions in Jazz.

Ponderosa High School definitively won the 4A state champions in Poms.

We congratulate all of these hard working and talented teams.

District News

DCSD is requesting parent input on the health and wellness of our students. Last year, DCSD received a large planning grant from Colorado Health Foundation in an effort to assess how the district supports students through the lens of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child model (WSCC). The mission of this grant is to review the current state of DCSD's student health and wellness program, and then formulate a three to five-year plan based on stakeholders’ needs, the latest research, and best practices. As part of this process, we would like your input.

How are we doing?

We want to hear from you! How often do you prefer to receive email newsletters from DCSD? How can we improve the news and information you receive? This brief survey should only take a minute or two of your time. Thank you for giving us your input!

Tell us what you think, here!

It may look like a plain, white shipping container was just parked on the backyard grounds of Mountain Vista High School. The contents of the container are anything but plain, though. Walking inside the container, different colors of ambient lighting glow, futuristic-looking equipment and tall towers are suspended from the ceiling, and the humidity level is set to 70 percent. The container has been recycled into a new kind of learning opportunity for students.
