What's Happening in 2nd grade?!

Second graders have been busy learning all about the pioneers and early days of Parker during their first social studies history unit.  As a culminating activity, the second graders went on a field trip to the Four Mile Historic Park.  While there, students had an opportunity to do pioneer chores that included getting water from a well, washing clothes, feeding the chickens, and cleaning rugs.  They also helped to make delicious cornbread and then had a chance during lunch to sample it.  Panning for gold, Native American games, and pioneer games were also part of the fun day!  Additionally, students spent time in the pioneer school and learned that school was much different in the 1800s.  Special thanks to all of our volunteers, who helped to make this day possible!  Everyone enjoyed the field trip!

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.
