District art teachers reveal their creative side at art exhibit

HIGHLANDS RANCH – The inaugural DCSD Art Faculty Art Show will open on Saturday, October 4 at the James H. LaRue/Highlands Ranch Library. Community members are invited to experience the passion, skill and talent that District staff members possess, and to join in celebrating the creativity that is shared with students in art classrooms everyday.

A vast array of two- and three-dimensional artwork, created with a variety of media, will be on display. More than fifty DCSD art teachers have submitted drawings, paintings, photography, sculpture, ceramics and jewelry, resulting in a comprehensive display of the range of expertise at work in schools throughout Douglas County.

The DCSD Art Faculty Art Show will run through October 24 during regular library hours at the James H. LaRue/Highlands Ranch Library, located at 9292 S Ridgeline Blvd, within the Highlands Ranch Town Center.

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.
