Mountain Vista makes it to 5A Final Four

HIGHLANDS RANCH – The Mountain Vista Golden Eagles is one of the four boys basketball teams still standing in this year’s 5A State Tournament.

The team will face Fossil Ridge on Friday March 14 at 8:30 p.m. at the Coors Events Center on the University of Colorado Boulder campus, for the chance to play in Saturday’s 5A championship game.

Mountain Vista claimed its spot in the Final Four after beating Eaglecrest 65 to 61 in the Great 8 on March 7. Unfortunately the Highlands Ranch Falcons were knocked out of contention in that round after a decisive defeat against Denver East (47-65).

Meanwhile, it was a great season for girls basketball with five teams in the top 10 at one point. Four of the teams made it to the 5A Sweet 16, Mountain Vista, Castle View, Rock Canyon and Highlands Ranch washed out of the tournament on March 4.

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.
