Chaparral Students Use Fashion Skills for Charity

On Saturday, October 17, the Chaparral High School Fashion Club participated in a Charity Fashion Show event for Bella Boutique Denver, a nonprofit organization that provides new prom dresses and accessories to students who cannot otherwise afford them. Students helped by taking old, outdated dresses and recreating them into beautiful, modern garments! The completed dresses were then modeled on the runway and auctioned off for the charity. 
Participating students included:
Team 1- Lily Phillips, Meredith Mistrot, Theo Galey
Team 2- Gianna Tarka
Team 3- Audrey Elliott, Tia Tarka, Ella Lucas, Amanda Cotterman
Team 4- Maria Barillari, Aleeya Sandersen, Dharmila Thomas, Demaria Moye

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.
