ThunderRidge wins second baseball state title

DENVER - ThunderRidge High School's baseball team has claimed its second 5A state title, by sweeping the championship series.
The team clinched the state championship on Saturday May 25, with a 2-1 come-from-behind victory against Rocky Mountain at All-City Field in Denver. 
While ThunderRidge was unbeaten in the championship series, it had lost its last regular season game in Fort Collins against Rocky Mountain. 
The team trailed the Lobos early in the championship game, but eventually the Grizzlies were able to come back—in part by permitting only three hits during the game. With two outs at the top of the seventh inning AJ Jacobs was able to hit single that would turn out to be the game-winning run.
Grizzlies coach Joe White, who was the co-coach in 2004 with Dave Mumper, when the Grizzlies won their only other title. White told the Denver Post that he began the season knowing "that we had a chance if we got hot at the right time."
With a group that White referred to as "great kids and unselfish," the Grizzlies rode a long list of contributions by the likes of Brody Westmoreland, Jake Hand, Bradley Thoutt, Jones, Jacobs, Loptien, Josh Newell and Connor Lambert. 
Despite finishing third in the Continental League and falling to Rocky Mountain 13-11 to end the regular season, they won two district games on the way to a seven-game streak as a cap, including handling powers Cherry Creek and Grandview, as well as the Lobos.

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.
