In First Grade....

MVE First Graders have wrapped up their economics unit with a $412 donation to The American Red Cross for disaster relief. After learning about needs and wants, kids explored the difference between services and goods. They researched service jobs at school, and then at home performed service jobs (chores) to earn a $5 income. At school, they collaborated to create goods to sell in a class store. Kids were able to experience being both producers and consumers when they bought and sold goods to each other using their own incomes. In conclusion, classes learned about charity and decided to donate the profits from the class stores to The American Red Cross!

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.
