South Ridge students provide warm gift to local hospital

Students with blankets

A group of South Ridge Elementary School students recently delivered handmade baby blankets to the maternity ward at Castle Rock Adventist Hospital. The blankets were original creations by members of K-Kids, an after-school club sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Castle Rock. 

Under the guidance of South Ridge faculty advisors Mike Current and Amy Dulin, the group designed a colorful array of blankets for newborns. Current and Dulin are pictured here with the students and Denny Hill from Kiwanis Club of Castle Rock (far right).

CASTLE ROCK - On February 6, the Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education confirmed its commitment to begin the process of seeking approval from voters for additional local funding.

“Our children need a bond and mill levy override (MLO) to be passed in 2018, beyond any doubt,” said DCSD Board of Education President David Ray. “We want to move forward immediately with the necessary processes and collaboration with our community in order to finalize a formal funding package.”

Eleven Douglas County School District schools have been named recipients of the 2017 John Irwin Schools of Excellence Awards. The John Irwin awards are given to schools that demonstrate exceptional academic achievement over time. These schools received an "Exceeds Expectations" rating on the Academic Achievement indicator of the School Performance Frameworks reflecting exceptional performance in Math, English Language Arts, and Science.
