Good sportsmanship results in a big splash

Larkspur Elementary Bobcats

CASTLE ROCK – Team members from the fourth and fifth grade Larkspur Elementary Girls basketball team were recognized with a Sportsmanship Award, presented by the Castle Rock Recreation Center. Parents recently received an email informing them that the level of conduct of the players, coaches and parents earned them the highest average score in their grade/gender division. Their efforts will be rewarded with a pool party at the rec center.

Good sportsmanship was demonstrated by Coach Forbes, fourth-grade students Mari B., Rielley M. and Addy S., and fifth-grade students Alana M., Jenna B., Corrie F., Daphne A., Cari C., Taylor V., Isabelle G., Abby N. and Sarah P.

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.
