Current Book Selection: Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance by Angela Duckworth
Monday, January 30th Available on Kindle, Audible and print and audio at Douglas County Libraries
Pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth shows anyone striving to succeed—be it parents, stu-dents, educators, athletes, or business people—that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but a special blend of passion and persistence she calls “grit.” Duckworth, now a celebrated researcher and professor, describes her early eye-opening stints in teaching, business consulting, and neuroscience, which led to the hypothesis that what really drives success is not “genius” but a unique combination of passion and long-term perseverance.
Please read this Book Club Flyer for our other books and dates. We hope you will join us soon!

DCS Montessori Charter School 311 Castle Pines Pkwy, Castle Pines, CO 80108
As you know, DCS has hosted an Arts Festival fund raiser for the past two years. We were able to pay for a good portion of our sound system and purchase a digital piano with funds raised from past festivals. The students truly enjoy this opportunity to showcase their talents and are eagerly anticipating the third annual Festival.
Sadly, our festival founding parent is no longer with the school. We are seeking parents who truly appreciate the arts and have good organizational skills to coordinate the festival for February 10-11, 2017. We are hoping to use the funds raised this year to add a clay roller table to the Art room.
If you are interested in coordinating or assisting with the Arts Festival, please contact either Ms. Lorraine firstname.lastname@example.org or Mr. Sam SMCARSTENS@dcsdk12.org and we’ll connect with you. Much of the work is already done for the festival; we have documents, categories, instructions, etc. We just need an organizing angel to make the event a success!
Thank you for considering this wonderful volunteer opportunity.
Ms. Lorraine, Music Teacher Mr. Sam, Art Teacher Ms. Holly, Librarian
