THE PRINCIPAL CHRONICLES - JOSH MILLER

 

The Principal Chronicles continue ... Another year has come to a close. I cannot believe how fast it went, it just seemed like yesterday we were welcoming our students back from summer. Looking back on this year, I'll have to say personally, this was my hardest year I have ever had in administration. I learned a lot this year about myself and our school. Now that we made it to the end of the year, I have made myself a very long to-do list for the summer.

This summer I plan on spending a lot of time prepping for next year and maybe sprinkling a little bit of fun here and there. As a family, we are competing in the Rocky Mountain State Games in the Springs. We aren't an athletically gifted family by any means so we chose rock climbing, air hockey, and orienteering to compete in. Who knows how we will do but it will be fun. Other than that, the only other trip I have is backpacking with my dad which is really more like walking in the woods in absolute and utter silence. Can't say it is my favorite times but I do enjoy spending time with my father.

Lastly, I just want to say thank you to all of the Cherokee Trail Family, Staff, students, and community. Even though this year was a challenge, I still love my job, I love the students here, I love the community, and most of all, I am proud to be a member of the Cherokee Trail and Chaparral family. I am a very lucky person.

Have a great summer and make good choices. See you next year when the Principal Chronicles continue ...

Last month, the Board of Education passed a resolution tasking the Superintendent to convene a task force inclusive of members of the general public and staff members. This task force will develop a survey for parents of students eligible for special education services and a survey for staff members who serve students eligible for special education services.

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.
