(Thanksgiving Edition) In honor of Thanksgiving here is what I am thankful for:

  • A dedicated and caring staff
  • My family
  • A supportive and involved school community
  • Our fun and hard-working students
  • Time to build our STEAM framework the right way
  • CrossFit
  • My health

  • Movies
There is probably a ton more but this is a good starting list. Thank you to all who read this, we appreciate all that you do to make Cherokee Trail great. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving break and know that we are all very lucky to have our school to bring us together. 
FROM THE ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL - ROBIN HUNT
Parents,
Thanks to all those who supported our Parker Task Force Thanksgiving Dinner food drive. We were able to provide 42 complete meals and 30 partial meals. Your generosity will allow many struggling families in the Parker area to enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner. We also had many parents and staff members help with the assembly and delivery of the meals. The words "thank you" just aren't enough to express my gratitude for you all! Being new to Cherokee Trail, I am continually amazed with the support the community offers to our school. 
 
Happy Thanksgiving,
Robin Hunt

District News

While the holidays are often a joyous time with friends and family, we know that they can also be stressful, not just for adults, but for children too. In addition to the annual pressure of gift giving, family gathering and travel, the holidays can trigger memories of the loss of loved ones and other traumatic events.

DCSD Board of Directors sitting at dais

On Monday, December 4, the Douglas County School District Board of Education voted unanimously (with six voting members) to approve a resolution to rescind the Choice Scholarship Program. The Resolution outlines three steps to this revocation: 1) Rescind the Choice Scholarship Program, 2) Repeal all district policies specifically related to the Choice Scholarship Program and the School Choice Grant Program, 3) Direct the Board President and/or Interim Superintendent to end the litigation challenging the Choice Scholarship Program in a cost-efficient and timely manner. The resolution takes effect immediately.

HRHS Cyber Patriots

Equifax, Target, Yahoo... Unfortunately it is not uncommon to hear about— or fall victim to— data security breaches as computers become increasingly integrated into our lives. However, a generation of high school students are preparing to fill cybersecurity roles to help protect all of us against future attacks; and many of these future protectors are right here in Douglas County. Meet the Highlands Ranch High School CyberPatriots.
