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

Parents,
As we approach the Thanksgiving season our student council has chosen the Parker Task Force's Thanksgiving Project for their first service project. We will be collecting items to provide full Thanksgiving meals for community members in need.  Donations need to be made prior to November 19. Cash donations are welcome as well.

What to provide for a complete Thanksgiving dinner:

  • Frozen turkey 
  • Aluminum turkey pan 
  • Canned Vegetables 
  • Potatoes 
  • Butter  
  • Stuffing 
  • Canned Sweet Potatoes 
  • Dinner Rolls
  • Pie/dessert  
  • Gravy, packets or jars 
  • Canned Cranberry Sauce 
  • Jello or canned fruit
Also, please consider taking the time to thank our staff members for their dedication to your students. A quick note or email means the world to those who pour their time, energy, and emotion into their students.
Know that we are so very thankful for our community. You support us beyond measure and we thank you for that!

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.
