Stay active over the holidays

Thanksgiving and Christmas are inherently the holidays to relax, eat too much, and relax some more (i.e. couch-table-couch). As cozy as this can be, it can leave you feeling lethargic and unhealthy.

Children's Hospital Colorado's Michael Witten, MS, CSCS, exercise physiologist, director of the Children's Colorado Wellness Center, and John Paro, fitness manager of the Anschutz Health and Wellness Center, suggest some ways to get a metabolic boost and burn extra calories in the midst of holiday gluttony.

District News

High school students across Douglas County, and many students in respective feeder schools, are once again learning that a little kindness can go a long way. Again this year, our high schools hosted Wish Weeks to make dreams come true for Make-A-Wish Foundation beneficiaries.

The Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education has named Thomas S. Tucker, Ph.D. as the sole finalist to lead our 68,000-student district as superintendent on a unanimous vote.


The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) has certified Sagewood Middle School as a Recognized ASCA National Model Program (RAMP). A prestigious honor, Sagewood is now the only middle school in the state of Colorado to have gained this certification. Schools must receive a near-perfect score on ASCA’s scoring rubric, which outlines guidelines for building and maintaining student achievement, behavior, counseling curriculum, school culture, and several other factors, in order to become certified.
