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....

The top two-percent of female athletes in Douglas County School District (DCSD) were honored at the annual Girls and Women in Sports Luncheon last week at Chaparral High School. This year represented the 30th national celebration of Girls and Women in Sports Day, created to encourage and promote the participation of girls in athletics.

Superintendent Search text based logo

Working through the recent winter break, the Douglas County School District Board of Education has kicked off its search for DCSD’s next permanent superintendent. Following a thorough vetting of potential search firms, Ray & Associates (no relation to Board Director David Ray) has been hired to conduct the national search. The cost of the firm, excluding travel expenses, is $40,000. The money will come from the school board's budget, which is used for costs such as legal expenses and conferences.
