The Stallion Scoop: 13Jan17




The Principal Chronicles continue ... This past week I have been in California for the MLS Combine. My job has essentially been team mom. Getting 71 college-aged men to and from three different games as well as draft. Funny thing is, it's basically exactly like my job at school just the people are bigger. It's been a fun week but I am fully ready to go home and get back to school. I miss the staff, community, and especially the kids.

I'll be back in action and probably a lot more interesting and witty next week when I return. Until next time when the Principal Chronicles continue ...


Volunteer Opportunity: Would you like to show your appreciation for our CTE staff? We are looking for someone to organize the Teacher Conference Dinner, a meal we provide for our staff during the late night of conference week. Winter conferences will be at the end of February. Let us know if this is something you would like to do by sending an email to CTEPSP[at]gmail[dot]com. Thank you!

Spirit Wear: Remember that you can order CTE Spirit Wear at any time! All orders are placed online and delivered to CTE within two weeks. Show your CTE pride!

All School Dance: Our annual All School Dance will be Friday, January 27th from 6:00pm - 8:00pm. This is always a fun-filled night for our entire school and our staff! Entrance into the dance is FREE. Students must come accompanied by an adult. Concessions will be sold and other goodies! Parents, if you're going to attend, please consider lending a hand to make this night run smoothly. This is also an event when we can use student volunteers and they will receive community service hours.

Restaurant Night: Save the date for our next restaurant nights at Lil' Ricci's, January 26th, 27th, & 28th. More information will come home next week!

CTE Car Decal: CTE car decals are new this year with our brand new logo! Some of you received one at the beginning of the year when you signed up for a PSP Membership. If you would like to order a decal separately fill out the form and send it in with your student along with payment. We love seeing the CTE decals around town! 

Jump Rope for Heart is coming to our school! You can get a “jump start” by fundraising online at www.heart.org/jump.
All Students who raise $150 before the upcoming American Heart Association Kick-Off will be recognized at the event and receive Gabby, one of our Zoo Crew plush characters!
KICK-OFF DATE: Wednesday, January 25th

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.
