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 This fundraising event involves local Denver Designers selecting old ugly out of date and out of style dresses and recreating them.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!!! Arielle Bergmann, Fashion Club Sponsor.

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.
