3rd Annual Coyote Fitness Challenge to take place in May!

The Castle Rock Elementary PTO is excited to announce the return of the Coyote Fitness Challenge in May! For one fun-filled week, May 15-19, CRE students will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of fitness-based activities, set individual fitness goals, and participate in classroom fitness breaks. The goal of Coyote Fitness Challenge is to encourage students to discover what fitness related activities they really enjoy (and which ones they don't!) as well as provide an educational platform to discuss why being active is good for our bodies, learning to make healthy choices, and setting realistic goals for themselves. At the end of the challenge week, it is our hope that our students will have set and achieved fitness goals that will help them with our grand finale - all of our students will participate in a hike up to the top of the Castle Rock just down the street from our school! 

We are encouraging all of our Coyote Parents to sponsor their child as they jump, run, climb and plank their way through the week! All of the money earned from the Coyote Fitness Challenge will be used to purchase playground equipment and activities to keep the students interested and engaged at recess, plus a shed to store it in. Examples of items our students have asked for: soccer goals, flags for flag football, additional playground balls in a variety of sizes, items for kickball/baseball and so much more! The PTO would like to raise $10,000 during this event to be able to purchase items prior to the start of 2017-2018 school year, but also have some set aside to cover the cost of replacements as items wear out. 

All students will receive a custom Coyote Fitness Challenge t-shirt and water bottle for participating.

CASTLE ROCK - On February 6, the Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education confirmed its commitment to begin the process of seeking approval from voters for additional local funding.

“Our children need a bond and mill levy override (MLO) to be passed in 2018, beyond any doubt,” said DCSD Board of Education President David Ray. “We want to move forward immediately with the necessary processes and collaboration with our community in order to finalize a formal funding package.”

Eleven Douglas County School District schools have been named recipients of the 2017 John Irwin Schools of Excellence Awards. The John Irwin awards are given to schools that demonstrate exceptional academic achievement over time. These schools received an "Exceeds Expectations" rating on the Academic Achievement indicator of the School Performance Frameworks reflecting exceptional performance in Math, English Language Arts, and Science.
