Winter Guard

Castle Rock- The Mesa Middle School Winter Guard went to Mesa Ridge High School on Saturday, February 6th. The team took 4th place in the competition. Winter guard involves spinning flags, sabres, and rifles.

“Winter guard is a fun way to be active and bond with friends but it stinks when you get hit by a flag pole” said Danyelle Whispell.

“It is fun for both genders the team is both serious and nice you get to travel around Colorado. Looks can be deceiving but it is really fun”, said color guard member Joe Sorenson.

Team members Joe Sorenson, Lauren Averill, Ash Bowley, Allison Iversen, Sasha Krause and Megan Phibbs participated in the competition.

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.
