The PRINCIPAL CHRONICLES Continue - JOSH MILLER

Halloween has come and gone and right around the corner is Thanksgiving. It is amazing to me how fast this year has been going. With all of the things we have been doing here it has been busier than ever. I truly feel like the days here just fly by. Many times I look up at the clock and it's 3:25 and the students are lining up to go home. 
 
Thinking back to Halloween, I was very impressed this year with the number of students who created their own costumes. The creativity and the craftsmanship that went into their handiwork was incredible. It always makes me smile on Halloween to see all of the students dressed up. What a fun day. 
 
On December 4th it is our first ever STEAM day. We are opening our doors from 8:45 - 9:45 AM so all of our community can see what challenges our students have been up to. We are very excited to showcase all that we have been learning about. Everyone is invited and we hope to see you all there. 
 
That is it for this week. At some point soon, I need to throw out a good story but that will have to wait for another episode of the Principal Chronicles.....
 

FROM THE ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL - ROBIN HUNT

District News

On February 9 the PACE Center hosted Portfolio Day for students like Sladovnik. It was an opportunity for critiques from working professional artists, and workshops. It culminates in the "Bright Futures" art exhibit - a showcase of selected work on display February 16-27.

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.”
