#CountyforCory Campaign a Huge Success

Students in the DCHS feeder area participated in the #CountyforCory Wish Week Jan 23-27, 2017. Students raised money for a Douglas County School District student named Cory, who is suffering from a terminal illness, to fulfill his wish of visiting Disney World.

CRE students and staff had a goal to raise $2000. At the end of Spirit Week, they raised a total of  $2,221.00!

In total, the DCHS feeder schools raised between $35,000 and $40,000 for Make-A-Wish. 

A Make-A-Wish experience typically costs between $5,000 and $7,000. The extra money earned will help other children make their dreams come true with other Make-A-Wish experiences.

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.”
