Volunteers Needed

Volunteering at CRE can be a rewarding experience that allows parents to see the inner workings of the school and come alongside our students in a highly beneficial way. While we are always in need of volunteers, we recognize that not everyone can commit to major projects. This is why we have redesigned our Volunteer Program to provide options for parents and family members wishing to volunteer but without the major time commitment. Our Volunteer Coordinator, Jennifer Force, is aware of the needs of many of our teachers and staff, so if you have only 20 minutes to give, we have a 20 minute project for you! If you are only available once a month, we have volunteer opportunities for that, too! 

We have volunteer opportunities that range from cutting classroom work/projects to working directly with students in a small group setting and everything in-between. There's something for everyone to get involved in! 

Get started by filling out our brand new volunteer form and our Volunteer Coordinator will be in touch with you to get you started!

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.
