Who Wore It Better?

What started as a funny joke over fall break has quickly gained quite a buzz for the Mammoth Heights Elementary school community.

“I was watching the news and saw Kyle Clark had on the same jacket that I had bought over the summer. I bought the jacket because I thought it was cool and it is Chap colors too; red and blue. When I saw him wearing the same one, I thought – I am going to take a picture and screen shot it next to me doing my morning show and see who wore it better. I challenged him on Twitter. Two hours later he accepted my challenge,” says Mammoth Height’s principal, Nick Holtvluwer.



Mr. H. and 9News anchor, Kyle Clark, went back and forth for weeks trying to figure out who wore the jacket better.

“I never could have imagined all this would have happened. I thought it would be fun. I thought to myself, if he does accept it we’ll make it fun and the kids will love it. The community is buzzing. It gained so much attention over the last few days. We are getting so many calls and questions about when is Kyle coming, when will he be on the morning show, and who is going to wear the coat better,” says, Mr. H.

The jacket has also caused a bit of a stir in the 9News for Kyle too.

Kyle and Ivana wear same jacket“Ivana Trump, the President’s Ex-wife, has a very similar jacket she wore for an interview very recently; so people were pointing out I had the same jacket as a middle aged woman. Which is fine, I can take that. So I was really excited when Mr. H posted, because all I could think was thank goodness they make this for men too,” says 9News anchor, Kyle Clark.

After the playful banter back and forth it was decided to bring Kyle in to Mammoth Heights.

“I do a daily morning show for our students and community every morning. I think our community really appreciates that. Getting to have a professional anchor be part of this and cohost my show is really fun,” says Mr. H.

“I was really excited. I used to do the announcements at my school where I grew up. My father is a retired elementary school principal, so this was the first place I ever talked to groups of people, so I figured it was a good time to come back and do it again,” says Kyle.

The two both say the morning show was a hit. Mr. H also appeared on one of the 9 Newscasts alongside Kyle Clark.  You can find the 9News story here and the morning show, Good Morning Mammoth Heights here. Though the question has been thrown around for the last few months, it still remains- who wore it better?

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.
