Healthy Eating Tips For The Holidays

The average American adult gains about one to two pounds per year; nearly one pound of that occurs between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day. Most people don't lose this weight, which means many adults gain five to 10 pounds over five years. So how can you prevent this from happening year after year? Children's Hospital Colorado nutrition experts Sherry Archuleta, Bethany Lusk and Janine Higgins provide some tips and recipes on how to keep the pounds off this holiday season.

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.
