THE PRINCIPAL CHRONICLES - JOSH MILLER

The Principal Chronicles continues...(Christmas Edition) - As I write this, it is the last day of school before Winter Break. Most of the classes are in the middle of having their school parties. It is going to be one CRAZY day then, just like that, the day will be over and we will all have two weeks to recover.

For us, we are going to have a pretty low key Christmas. My older daughter (she with the seven page wish list) has asked for a squishie. I'm not even sure I spelled that correctly. Basically, it is some inanimate object that comes in various forms, mostly food, and you squish it and it takes a while until it retains its original shape. Why she wants these things I have no idea, but she does. In fact, she is fixated on these silly little squishies. Very strange.

My younger daughter's list isn't quite as long, but what is the number one thing on the list? Yep a Hatchimal. If you haven't heard of Hatchimals, it's only the toy that has been on the news for parents fighting over it in WalMart. It's basically an egg with some weird thing that comes out of it. What comes out of it, I have no idea.

Bottom line, it should be a very interesting Christmas. That is it for this week. From our family to yours have a happy holiday season! Until next time when the Principal Chronicles continues...

3rd GRADE FIELD TRIP! IMPORTANT INFO! MARK YOUR CALENDARS!

Our 3rd grade students will be taking their annual field trip to see and hear The Colorado Symphony Orchestra perform the Youth Series Concert - Symphonic Storytelling on Wednesday January 11th, 2017.

Due to book keeping and budget constraints, monies can not be collected before January 2017. You will be getting the field trip permission/payment form on Thursday, January 5th in Thursday Folders. You will need to fill it out and return it, along with your payment by Tuesday January 10th.

Students will need to bring a sack lunch with them and leave it here at CTE. We will all eat in the cafeteria when we return at 1:00pm.

I'm going to be needing 10 chaperones to help with the trip. Chaperones, your $6.00 bus fee will be covered by the district, but you will need to pay the $5.00 concert ticket fee. Email me and I'll take the first 10 who contact me. I appreciate the help!

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.
