Father Son Retreat

Dad, are you asking yourself: where is the time going?

Are you finding yourself thinking more and more about your son's social life?

Would you like just a few moments to laugh with your son again like the good old days?

As your son begins to navigate his way through the daunting teen boy-world, many memories are surfacing for you from transforming your young super hero to learning how to act like a man.

Join other DCSD fathers and sons on an overnight retreat in the middle of a forest in Larkspur, Colorado. Expect to engage in games, campfires and rich conversation with your son and other dads in our community. Leave feeling more connected with fond memories to cherish for years to come.

  • Sleep in a heated cabin with real toilets.
  • Play games and engage in great conversation.
  • Eat two fabulous meals in a cozy dining hall.
  • Enjoy s'mores by a campfire.

For current DCSD 8th and 9th grade sons and their fathers.

January 27-28, 2017, 5:00 p.m.-10:30 a.m.
Ponderosa Retreat Center (15235 Furrow Rd, Larkspur, CO 80118)

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.
