DCSD Students Organize Memorial Tournament

‘Warrior Rumble’ Honors Arapahoe H.S. Victim

DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. – This weekend students from 21 schools, mainly from the southern metro area, will be coming together for the Warrior Rumble, a volleyball tournament organized by Douglas County students and staff to honor the life of Arapahoe High School shooting victim Claire Davis.

The event is will be at Chaparral High School in Parker on Jan 18 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Proceeds will benefit the Claire Davis Fund.

The tournament started with a simple idea. Chaparral High School senior and volleyball player Hayley Ferguson wanted to pull together a fundraiser to help pay for Davis’ medial bills. Support quickly grew and Ferguson and Chaparral High School’s student government were able to secure a location and the support of dozens of high school teams, as well as items for a silent auction.

During the event, participants can bid on various items, including ‘meet & greet’ passes to Rascal Flatts concert; Robin Thicke concert tickets; signed items from the Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche and former Denver Broncos players; as well senior photo shoots and prom hair styling from local businesses.

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.
