CRE receives funds for Habitat

Groove Auto in Centennial announced that from every vehicle sold, a portion of the revenue is given back to Denver-area schools. From the many applications, an impressive number of schools were selected to receive checks ranging from $1,000 to $3,500. Congrats to the DCSD recipients: Cherry Valley Elementary, Arrowwood Elementary, DCS Montessori Charter School, Acres Green Elementary SchoolBear Canyon Elementary SchoolCastle Rock Elementary SchoolSagewood Middle SchoolHOPE Online Learning Academy Co-Op, and Frontier Valley Elementary!

CRE's Habitat Specialist, Catherine Mackin, was on hand at the awards ceremony to receive the funds. The $3,500 award will be used in our habitat to create more spaces for students to utilize as well as building additonal plant structures.

The habitat is a popular place for our students to have class outside of the classroom, study and observe plants and wildlife, and provides a tranquil place for quiet writing and reflection. 

Thank you, Groove Auto, for your generosity!

District News

High school students across Douglas County, and many students in respective feeder schools, are once again learning that a little kindness can go a long way. Again this year, our high schools hosted Wish Weeks to make dreams come true for Make-A-Wish Foundation beneficiaries.

The Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education has named Thomas S. Tucker, Ph.D. as the sole finalist to lead our 68,000-student district as superintendent on a unanimous vote.


The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) has certified Sagewood Middle School as a Recognized ASCA National Model Program (RAMP). A prestigious honor, Sagewood is now the only middle school in the state of Colorado to have gained this certification. Schools must receive a near-perfect score on ASCA’s scoring rubric, which outlines guidelines for building and maintaining student achievement, behavior, counseling curriculum, school culture, and several other factors, in order to become certified.
