Adaptive PE gets a little help from Pi Robotics

Adaptive PE got a taste of driving robots courtesy of the Pi Robotics Team. The Pi Robotics Team presented their robot and book to the Chaparral Adaptive PE class. All students were given the opportunity to drive the robot. The robotics team read aloud and shared illustrations from the book to the class. Their book is published and will be shared with individuals at Children's Hospital. Copies will be donated to patients. Pi Robotics team is an outside 'basement' team of Chaparral students. They are currently competing at the state level. They are showing promise of advancement and sucess at regionals over spring break in California. If successful at regionals, they will advance to the world competition games later this summer.

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.
