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.

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.
