MVE Celebrate with Veterans!

On November 10th, Mountain View hosted 14 veterans and their families for our annual Veterans' Day Celebration!  We had vets from the Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force, and who had served in Vietnam, Operations JUST CAUSE, DESERT STORM, IRAQI FREEDOM AND ENDURING FREEDOM - it was quite an event!  More importantly, they were our schools, dads, moms and grandpas! 

After leading the school in the Pledge of Alligence,our 2nd grade leaders, MVE's Cub Club, introduced the Vets and said a little about their distingushed military careers!  Then, all the students in the school sang a beautiful song to our Veterans, directed by out AMAZING music teacher, Mrs. Karlie Karter!  Finally, the Vets were invited into classrooms to share about their experiences, and students were given the ability, first-hand, to ask, see, hear and feel what it was like to be in the Armed Forces.

Click me if you would like to see the kids singing the song!

Thank you Veterans for coming and sharing!

LOVE,

MVE

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.
