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

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.
