PRINCIPAL CHRONICLES - JOSH MILLER

The Principal Chronicles continue ... STEAM DAY!!!!!! STEAM Day is coming up next Friday and we are super-excited to have all of you come in and see what our kids have been working on (flyer). The whole purpose behind STEAM Day is to have an opportunity for our entire community to come in to CTE and have our students present their learning. The kids have been working very hard and are psyched to present. Here is what the day will look like:
   
2:00 - 2:45p: students will be touring other classrooms
   
2:45 - 3:30p: parents will be invited to go to classrooms
              3:00p: we have a special Grand Opening!
   
* Any parents who come to CTE before 2:45 can visit our specials teachers as they showcase their challenges

Also, we are trying to do a live feed for a family who cannot attend that day. This family volunteered to be our guinea pig since we have never done anything like this before. Essentially we will be conducting a live broadcast of their student's STEAM Day presentation which they can watch on their computer. If this works we will begin to live broadcast more events such as our EPIC ceremonies. We think it can help our working parents attend daytime events as they happen. Keep your fingers crossed!

That is it for this week, stay tuned for next week's edition of the Principal Chronicles - San Diego edition.

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.
