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

High school students across Douglas County, and many students in respective feeder schools, are once again learning that a little kindness can go a long way. Again this year, our high schools hosted Wish Weeks to make dreams come true for Make-A-Wish Foundation beneficiaries.

The Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education has named Thomas S. Tucker, Ph.D. as the sole finalist to lead our 68,000-student district as superintendent on a unanimous vote.
 

 

The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) has certified Sagewood Middle School as a Recognized ASCA National Model Program (RAMP). A prestigious honor, Sagewood is now the only middle school in the state of Colorado to have gained this certification. Schools must receive a near-perfect score on ASCA’s scoring rubric, which outlines guidelines for building and maintaining student achievement, behavior, counseling curriculum, school culture, and several other factors, in order to become certified.
