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!

CASTLE ROCK - On February 6, the Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education confirmed its commitment to begin the process of seeking approval from voters for additional local funding.
