On the kindie front...

Our kindies have been continuing learning about the properties of matter and how they change through pumpkin investigations.  We’ve been working hard on using our five senses to describe the properties and add those adjectives into our writing.  With so many fun pumpkin stories and informational texts, we’ve been in the fall spirit!  All of the classes investigated the inside of pumpkins by getting REALLY messy.  We made sure to estimate how many seeds there were in our pumpkins and practiced counting by 2s, 5s, and 10s to find out the actual amount.  Check out the book, “How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin?” to revisit this learning at home!

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.
