THE PRINCIPAL CHRONICLES - JOSH MILLER

 

The Principal Chronicles continue ... As I write this I am sitting on the orange couch in the learning commons listening to our staff learn about Thinking Maps. Thinking Maps are a great way for our kids to organize their thinking and will really help with their writing moving into next year. So keep an eye out for your kids to start drawing all kinds of different maps, especially next year.

On a personal note, tonight is my youngest's band concert. She has been squawking and squeaking for a whole year on the clarinet and now she is ready to strut her stuff. Honestly, she is not a big fan of band. I think she doesn't like getting up super early. I get it, we have to leave our house by 6 AM in order to make it to Legend by 6:55. I can't tell you how super fun it has been this year trying to get her up at 5:30 AM.

I think she is ready for the concert and by being ready, I mean she has her dress all picked out. As for her actual musical readiness? That will be a wait and see. Either way, it will be fun to listen to the kids tonight and I'm excited to be a parent for one night.

That is it for this week. See you next time when the Principal Chronicles continues...

District News

Last month, the Board of Education passed a resolution tasking the Superintendent to convene a task force inclusive of members of the general public and staff members. This task force will develop a survey for parents of students eligible for special education services and a survey for staff members who serve students eligible for special education services.

CASTLE ROCK - On February 6, the Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education confirmed its commitment to begin the process of seeking approval from voters for additional local funding.

“Our children need a bond and mill levy override (MLO) to be passed in 2018, beyond any doubt,” said DCSD Board of Education President David Ray. “We want to move forward immediately with the necessary processes and collaboration with our community in order to finalize a formal funding package.”

Eleven Douglas County School District schools have been named recipients of the 2017 John Irwin Schools of Excellence Awards. The John Irwin awards are given to schools that demonstrate exceptional academic achievement over time. These schools received an "Exceeds Expectations" rating on the Academic Achievement indicator of the School Performance Frameworks reflecting exceptional performance in Math, English Language Arts, and Science.
