Fashion Club helps Local Charity

The CHS Fashion Club participated in the Charity Fashion Show Event for Bella Boutique, Denver. Bella Boutique is a non-profit organization that provides new prom dresses and accessories to those students who can not afford to purchase them. This fundraising event involves local Denver Designers selecting old ugly out of date and out of style dresses and recreating them. Recycle and Redesign at it finest! Once the dresses are completed they are then modeled on the runway and auctioned off for the charity. In addition to working on their team work and critical thinking skills, students also got to create something special from something ugly all while giving back at the same time. The club raised over $900 for the charity with the auctioning of their dresses. Please give these students a high five! They did an amazing job and I was so proud to call them my students!!!

Working through the recent winter break, the Douglas County School District Board of Education has kicked off its search for DCSD’s next permanent superintendent. Following a thorough vetting of potential search firms, Ray & Associates (no relation to Board Director David Ray) has been hired to conduct the national search. The cost of the firm, excluding travel expenses, is $40,000. The money will come from the school board's budget, which is used for costs such as legal expenses and conferences.
