Dear DCS Montessori Community,
Welcome to Colorado winter, as the snow has finally decided to put in a few appearances, and my skis are enjoying rock-free runs (finally), and our students are in full gears of normalization. They have settled into routines and are making academic, as well as social-emotional, growth. It is a beautiful time of year, especially when waking up to a white, crystalline world on snowy mornings like today. Hopefully, each of us took a moment among our school-morning chaos – to enjoy the fresh snow’s beauty.
While I may have beauty on my mind, I say it with a heavy heart in reflection upon yet another tragic school shooting in Florida. Through the sadness, and questions of “Why?”, I find it important to communicate with our community in regard to all the ways we do our best to keep your students safe.

The DCS Montessori Battle of the Books teams are ready to go! Come and support our teams as they compete against teams from other schools. Click here for the schedule. We also have the DCS Montessori Team dates on our website calendar in the left column.
Douglas County Libraries’ Battle of the Books program started in the 2008-2009 school year. It has been a rousing success ever since! Each school that participates has a 3/4 grade team and a 5/6 grade team. The students read 10 books from a set list. The teams compete against each other in inter-school battles and then a bracket-style tournament of 8 teams to determine the winner for the branch. After the final branch battles, the winning teams move onto a district battle to determine the winners for all of Douglas County.
We expect to send home the Summer Camp Brochure (in Friday Folders) on Friday, March 9th. If possible, we will post it on our website prior to that date.
Registration and Payment will be done online. If you don’t already have a RevTrak account, you will simply create one so you can pay online with your credit card.
