Patriotic Celebration

On November 7th, Mesa Middle School hosted its annual Patriotic Celebration. The students involved participated as members of choir, band, orchestra, drama, and humanities classes, and represented Mesa as the school connected with its community to honor United States Veterans. 

The event, which began as a Music Department concert to honor the 200th Anniversary of "The Star Spangled Banner," has expanded to connect Mesa students from several disciplines, and has played host to several highly regarded groups. This year, Mesa was proud to welcome Stellar Brass, from the United States Air Force Academy, led by Master Sargeant Jeremy L. Grant.

Highlights from the evening include the Presentation of Colors by a local Honor Guard during the performance of the Star Spangled Banner, a combined Band, Orchestra, and Choral piece,  the headline performance from Stellar Brass; and a full house of family and community members who - through music - celebrated the extraordinary service of America's Veterans.

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.
