Girls and Women in Sports

On Friday, January 17, Mesa Middle School students were honored at the Women and Girls in Sports Luncheon at Chaparral High School in Parker. The girls honored were Dayna Jackson, Rachel Eilers, Isabel Castilleja, Jenna Santolaya, Ellie Mickelsen and Preslie Coffey. The girls were recognized for their athletic talent by their coaches and chosen for their aptitude and perseverance in sports.

“Being recognized made me feel super happy and excited”, said Dayna Jackson, one of the girls recognized at the luncheon.

This year’s theme was Leading the Way. Students, teachers, coaches, administrators and parents strive to lead the way for the next generation and all the others to come.

“It was great to recognize the girls and women athletes in Douglas County and we were very proud of the girls and women representing our school”,said Mr. Frye, Mesa athletic director.

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.
