PRINCIPAL CHRONICLES - JOSH MILLER

Hope everyone is having a great week. Currently the principal chronicles are in Florida for the MLS combine. Although you would think it's beach and sunshine, it's really beach, wind and rain. We will try to put something entertaining together for next week's edition. Have a great week.

Until next time when the Principal Chronicles continue ...


FROM THE ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL - ROBIN HUNT

Parents,
We've had a few issues with our carpool lane before and after school. Please remember the carpool lane is not for parking. Parked cars impede our carpool process. Thanks for your diligence in working to keep our students safe!

Student Council has chosen their next charity for our school community. We will be making a donation to the American Diabetes Association. The students are excited about this fundraiser as it hits close to home. CTE has several students who are affected by Diabetes, either personally or through family members.

To raise funds we will have a Penny-n-Paper War. Student Council will be collecting donations by grade level during lunch. The grade level which collects the most points will win a party. Here are the basic rules:

  • Pennies count as positive
  • Silver coins count as negative
  • Paper money counts as positive
  • Example - in the basket is a five dollar bill (+500 pts), two nickels (-10 pts), and fifty pennies (+50 pts) = 540 pts
We will begin collecting funds on Friday, 1/8, and finish on Friday, 1/22. We may extend it depending on interest.

As always, thanks for your support of our school community!

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.
