The 2013 Prom Dress Exchange is rolling out the red carpet for students in the metro Denver area who are looking for relief from the high cost that can be associated with attending prom.

For just $10, teens can select a dress from thousands of gently-used and new designer items, including a limited selection of menswear. Seamstresses will be available onsite to do limited alterations. Those unable to donate won’t be turned away – the goal of the event is to ensure every teen can attend their big day in style.

Now in its third year, the event is hosted by local non-profit The Prom Dress Exchange Corp. Additional sponsors who make the event possible include Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, LUPEC Denver, Ocean Cleaners of Commerce City, Hollywood Cowgirl Boutique Denver, Insit, LLC and Communications For Your Business

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.
