The Stallion Scoop: 29Sep16




The Principal Chronicles continue ...This week we have had about a MILLION things going on. We had our Fun Run, we interviewed for a 5th grade teacher, and then on Friday we have Ed Leader 21 touring our building. If I wore a fit bit, I would have definitely reached my 10,000 steps every day with time to spare.

All things went really well, the Fun Run was awesome and the kids worked hard to get as many laps as they could. Overall as a school, we ran 12,977 laps which is 811.06 miles! That was an average of over 1 1/2 miles per student!

This year we are awarding a Golden Shoe award, an award for running the most laps on average, to a primary class and an intermediate class. The winner of the primary Golden Shoe is Mrs. Briese's class with an average of 31.24 laps. The winner of the intermediate Golden Shoe is Mrs. Tyler's class with an average of 32.16 laps. They each earned an extra recess!

The class who won Best Spirit at the Fun Run and will receive a hamster ball party on prize day is......Ms. Jones' class! Their lightning bolt attire, amazing banner, and class chant put them at the top! Ms. Levine's afternoon class was a close second as a classroom of Super Heroes. Thank you to all the classes who put together a theme for the Fun Run! Your spirit during the Fun Run did not go unnoticed!

On a different note, Ed Leader is bringing 30 principals and superintendents to tour our school and see what we do best. I'm sure next week I'll have plenty of good stories.

That is it for this week. Tune in next week for another edition of the Principal Chronicles...

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.
