Yearbook Wins Again!

The Chaparral Yearbook staff just received the critique from NSPA (National Scholastic Press Association). Chaparral received an All-American Honor Rating. This is Phenomenal. Only 3% of yearbooks get this rating. Its the highest rank possible. The 2014-15 yearbook received 4,580 points which is 110 points below a perfect score.  You have to get 3,700 points to get All-American. They received 5 marks of distinction out of 5 categories. 

The Judge's Summary Comments:
"Congratulations on achieving an All-American rating with five marks of distinction.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading and critiquing the 2015 "Golden Images."  Its theme, "look UP" was creative and engaging.  You and your fine staff showed true dedication and produced a first-class publication.  Theme ingenuity, diverse topic coverage and photography approaches topped the list of your journalism skills."

Previously, the 2014-15 Yearbook received an All-Colorado rathing from the Colorado High School Press Association. Again, the highest award possible.

Congratulations to the CHS Yearbook Staff!

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.
