PBL in Action - Historical Wax Museum

CRE follows a unique project based learning style of education. PBL allows students to integrate knowledge with hands on exploration, design and presentation. In their latest PBL project, our third graders (and a few second graders) brought history to life in their historical wax museum. Students selected a historical figure they wished to learn more about, created a presentation fact board, and dressed themselves as their chosen figure. The classrooms were staged as a museum and the students were wax figures; only coming to life when someone pushed their "play button" and listened to their script of historical facts and information. Visitors to the museum were able to wander around to view the different wax figures, from pilgrims and Leonardo DaVinci, to Dr. Seuss and John Lennon.

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.”
