Spelling Bee

On January 19th, Mesa Middle held the school wide spelling bee. Approximately two dozen 7th and 8th graders battled against each other to determine the best speller at Mesa. Luke Hasselback crushed the competition and came out victorious. “The definitions were the hardest part of the competition,” Luke stated. “I studied for 3 to 5 hours every day for a week to prepare.”

Nik Larson was Mesa’s 2nd place winner. “Memorizing the words was the hardest,” Nik Larson stated. “I've been  studying all my grammar words carefully since 2nd grade because I  have wanted to win the spelling bee”. For all his hard work and pride, he has  been rewarded with 2nd place in the Mesa spelling bee and the respect of other students because of his victory.

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.
