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 Students helped by taking old, outdated dresses and recreating them into beautiful, modern garments!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 
Team 5- Isabel Forrest, Adam Mueller, Phebe Potter, Krissy Bitzky
Team 6- Sydney Fisher, Morgan Loveland, Grace Huber, Maria Zavaraas
Models- Nira Avari, Darianna Bohn, Michelle Diller, Bryce Lowry, Gianna Tarka, Audrey Elliott, Maria Zavaraas

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.
