The Stallion Scoop: 1Oct15

Thanks for tuning in for another edition of the Principal Chronicles ...

This weeks fun and excitement centered around our annual Fun Run. This is our big, PSP fundraiser and an opportunity for students to get some exercise and raise money for our school at the same time. It is super fun and we had a huge turn out of parents to support our students. This year we did something new with the spirit award; apparently I did not have my listening ears on during the assembly and I totally missed the spirit award part so I was a little confused the morning of the Fun Run when I had a few phone calls about whether or not students could wear face paint. In the end, the students did a really good job of making their outfits school-appropriate and I always love to see how creative the students (and staff) can be.

On a more disappointing note, we had to cancel our movie night this Friday because we did not get enough volunteers to help us run the event. Thinking back to last year, movie night was the first time I got to see how supportive our community is by the sheer number of people that showed up to watch a movie. I'm sure when we have our movie night again in the spring, we will have enough volunteers and we will be able to continue our movie night tradition.

That is it for this week's edition of the Principal Chronicles, sorry this is so short but the bell is about to ring and I don't want to miss my favorite part of the day: welcoming the families to school. Have a great week and tune in next time....

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.
