Douglas County schools mark Veterans Day with tributes, concerts

PARKER – More than 20 Douglas County schools will be celebrating local veterans during special assemblies, concerts and luncheons this Veterans Day, November 11.

The students and staff of the Douglas County School District recognize the great sacrifices made by our servicemen and women. Veterans Day provides the opportunity for our schools to coordinate events that celebrate their service to our country, as well as learning about the specific stories of each of these courageous veterans.

Below is a list of Veterans Day events being held at DCSD schools. Local veterans are welcome to attend a ceremony at a school in their community. Questions about specific events should be directed to the school.

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.
