Explore ACC - April 8, 2016

Ponderosa students have the option to take a field trip to explore Arapahoe Community College.  This can be good for:
  • -Seniors who have not finalized plans for next year or may be looking for ways to save some money on college.
  • -Juniors who may be interested in the variety of programs that ACC offers.
  • -Any students who just want more information about all the possibilities at ACC
Date:  April 8th
Time:  It will likely take the full school day
Cost:  $10
The deadline to sign up is Wednesday, March 30th, but we only have 10 spots reserved on the bus so it is first come first served for this trip.  To register students need to bring in the signed permission form along with $10 to secure their spot.

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.
