Soaring Hawk Brings History to Life

Students stand outside historical building

Dozens of second-graders from Soaring Hawk Elementary took over downtown Castle Rock and some of its most historical landmarks. Students in the four classes have been working hard all year to learn more about Castle Rock's founding fathers, traditions and its landmarks. Students were able to pick their favorite topic and become local experts. After researching their projects they determined the best way to share their knowledge with their classmates. Student choices included writing songs, creating slideshows, making brochures and posters.

Parents and community members were then invited to share in the excitement while the second-graders became tour guides and offered the historical walking tours showcasing what they learned and teaching other adults about Castle Rock and its rich history.

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.
