eDCSD Garden Project

Hi EDCSD Families,

 

This email is a follow up to the email we sent announcing our elementary students garden here at EDCSD.

Our school garden will serve as a team building and social connection endeavor which will continue for years to come. Furthermore, this project serves as part of a larger unit we are doing around local problems, such as hunger. Our students are learning about how hunger affects children in our own community, and will be connecting our school garden to community outreach programs to help feed families.

We are looking for some assistance in various areas. First of all, if you have any background or expertise on gardening and building garden beds, please contact the school with ways in which you can help.

We are also looking for seed donations and transplants to start our garden. Specifically, we are planning on planting pumpkins, watermelons, lettuce, potatoes, raspberries, beans, and herbs. 

Although we have $500, a money donation will help a lot. If you are willing to contribute towards our garden, you can now donate using the link below, by clicking on "Donation" at the bottom of the page, then click Register. All donations are tax deductible so remember to print your receipt.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Byrd, smbyrd[at]dcsdk12[dot]org or Mrs. Bruns,jlbruns[at]dcsdk12[dot]org

Thanks

EDCSD

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.
