Geography Bee

Castle Rock-  On January 12th, the Mesa Bears participated in a geography bee to see who would go to the state championship. Kendall Kopec won the competition, so she will be testing to see if she qualifies to go to state. Kendall said, “I was asked about oceans, states' mountain ranges and culture. The hardest questions I was asked were about culture.”  Kendall was nervous about the competition because her older brother made it to state and she “felt a lot of pressure.” All of Mesa wishes Kendall good luck in the next level of competition.

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.
