Letter From PTA

Dear NRE Parent Community,
As we wrap up the 2015-16 school year the NRE PTA wanted to keep our parents informed about the money raised this year and what we paid for. PTA works to serve every child within the building in a meaningful way. We provide the staff and students with tools they depend on to expand our children's learning and enrich their school culture. PTA gratefully works in partnership with the NRE community to provide these essential tools. Thank you for your continued support!
Year to date we have raised $55,000.00 
PTA provided NRE in 2015-16:
  • Online Instructional Resource $32,000 (IXL, Reading Plus, Lumos Learning, Math Mates, Wordly Wise, Head Sprout, Pebble Go, etc.)
  • Classroom Supplies $200/teacher $8,600 
  • Specials Budget (Technology/3D printer, Mandarin, Spanish, Music, Library, Health, Art, Gym) $4,200 
  • 6th grade/Kindergarten graduations $500
  • Technology earmark $8,000* (we save each school year for a large technology purchase every 2-3 years, PTA spent $25K in 2014-15 and are budgeting for our next big purchase)
  • Community Events (Muffins with Mom, Grandparents Breakfast, Doughnuts with Dad, Back to School Carnival, Multicultural Night)
We take the task of stretching every dollar earned very seriously. It is our privilege to be entrusted with your hard earned money and we will continue to provide resources that help every student learn, explore and love their school experience. For more details about PTA please visit our website or join us for a PTA meeting next fall!
Thank you and GO PRONGHORNS!

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.
