"I have been very pleased with the Little Pups Preschool at Coyote Creek in Highlands Ranch. My schedule changes weekly and they are very accommodating with my schedule. My son can attend school full day or half day. The curriculum is very good and is preparing my son for Kindergarten. He is challenged but is very excited about learning. The teachers are very skilled and attentive to all of the children. I couldn't be happier with my decision to have my son attend the Little Pups Program at Coyote Creek." - Laura C.

"We have been thrilled with Little Pups Pre-K program at CCE. It is creative, progressive and helps keep our kids at the same school. What I love most about it is that the kids are modeled after the kindergarten and school age programs and move about CCE as the older kids do, having access to the Specials classes (Technology, Music, Art, P.E. and Library)." - Anissa S.

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.
