Kindergarten Fire Station Field Trip 2016

As a part of their "Who is My Neighbor" unit, the CRE Kindergarten students walked to the downtown Castle Rock fire station. They were able to learn about fire safety, see the fire trucks and equipment up close, and watch as the firefighters responded quickly and efficiently to a real emergency call. The students were amazed at how quickly the fire men and women were able to get into their protective fire gear and into the fire trucks! They even got to see a few firefighters use the fire pole! 

Check out the Photo Gallery for an up-close look at their adventure!

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.
