DOUGLAS COUNTY–The CU Leeds School of Business has invited four high school juniors from Douglas County to participate in its Business Leadership Program, from this June 8 through June 14. This year's theme for the program is "Developing Teamwork, Academic Strength and Diversity." 
The program is designed to gather high school students from diverse backgrounds and provide them with an understanding of business fundamentals, computer skills and a chance to network with business professionals. The following students will join 32 other Business Leadership Program participants at the Boulder campus of the University of Colorado (CU), and will be eligible to win a $1,000 scholarship to the CU Leeds School of Business.
Madison Daniel  ThunderRidge High School

During the week-long program, students will be focused on creating five key deliverables that will be presented to a panel of judges. These deliverables include:
    -a television commercial,
   - a print advertisement,
   - a communication brief, and
   - a financial outline.
Throughout the process, students will find themselves competing in an advertising campaign, interacting with guest speakers from major corporations; meeting Business School faculty and administrators, experiencing life as a CU Student for a Week, and socializing with peers from different high schools.

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.
