Student art on display at Lone Tree Arts Center March 9

LONE TREE-- The Douglas County School District Art Exhibition is just around the corner. 

This collection of artwork from students across Douglas County School District (DCSD) will showcase the immense talents of students in the fine arts. A mixture of 2D and 3D works will be displayed in a gallery setting at the Lone Tree Art Center.

Students, families, community members and teachers are invited  to celebrate the creativity and critical thinking demonstrated by DCSD students. 

The Exhibition runs from March 9-14.  

Professional judges will be awarding artwork from different levels, styles, and mediums. Additionally, students have also been engaged as judges for the first time this year. Students were encouraged to apply to be a “learning judge” wherein they would shadow a professional judge to learn about the process of selecting and awarding scholarships and prizes.

Award winners' works of art will continue to be displayed for the three weeks in the atrium of the Lone Tree Art Center following the initial weekend exhibit. Winners will also receive scholarship awards from DCSD and The Air Academy Federal Credit Union during a special reception to be held on March 31.

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.
