1st Grader Brennan Lindholm wins Holiday Wreath fundraiser award!

December 2016

Castle Rock Elementary embarked in their second annual Holiday Wreath fundraiser this November. Students were given two weeks to sell a variety of holiday wreath and decorate door hanger products to their families, friends and neighbors. As an incentive for students to put their best salesman/saleswoman foot forward, the PTO offered a prize: two front row tickets to the upcoming CRE production of "The Lion King Experience" on December 8 at 6pm. 

First grader Brennan Lindholm took to the challenge. Within the two week time frame, he collected two full order forms. It was then decided that the students may have an extra day to sell, and Brennan took advantage of this by bringing in an additional order forms that were packed with orders! In total, Brennan sold 33 Holiday Wreath products from this fundraiser! Brennan, pictured above, was thrilled to receive his tickets! He and his family are looking forward to seeing the performance later this week. 

In all, the CRE student body did a fantastic job with sharing this opportunity to beautify their community. The sales from this year more than doubled from last years fundraiser. 

Congratulations Brennan, and to all of the CRE students and families to helped make this fundraiser a huge success! Happy Holidays from CRE!

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.
