Ponderosa High School claims 4A Boys Lacrosse State Championship

DENVER – On the same turf that the Denver Broncos won the AFC Championship in January, the Ponderosa Mustangs proved they too are champions.

On Saturday May 17 at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Ponderosa’s Boys Lacrosse team beat the defending champion Wheat Ridge Farmers, becoming the 2014 Colorado 4A Boys Lacrosse State Champions.

The Farmers didn’t go down without a fight. While Ponderosa had held a convincing lead throughout the game, leading 7-4 at halftime and 12-7 at the end of the third quarter, in the final quarter Wheat Ridge mounted a come back.

In the end, Ponderosa was able to hang one, claiming the title with a 13-11 win, in what some would call a “major upset in Colorado high school lacrosse,” according to CHSAA’s Dan Mohrmann.

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.
