Raising Resilient Girls

October 17, 2017 @ 11:26 am posted by Brycie Strother


Raising Resilient Girls is a 1-hour talk followed by a 30 minute Q&A session for parents, teachers, and community members

Girls Leadership speaks to parents and teachers across the country about the challenges girls face today, the reasons why we see girls struggling, and what we can do to help them. In this acclaimed 1-hour talk (followed by a 30 minute Q&A), we share how to help girls practice assertive self-expression, emotional intelligence, and healthy relationships, preparing them for a life of personal and social leadership. This engaging presentation covers the development of girl dynamics beginning in preschool through high school.

As written up in Parents Magazine, this talk concentrates on practical advice that can be executed in a real-life setting, such as:

  • girlsleadershipTalking about your own not-so-happy feelings;
  • Sharing your mistakes;
  • Helping your daughter to solve her own problems;
  • The Good Girl Phenomenon and conflict as an opportunity for positive change

This presentation is for adults only.  Parents, Community Members, and Teachers from outside our school are welcome!

Presentation Fee:  Free

Do you want to enroll your child [not presently a student at our school] next year?

Our Lottery deadline is November 30th. And YES, EVERY NEW STUDENT MUST APPLY VIA OUR LOTTERY – even siblings.

Current students do not enter the Lottery, they simply re-enroll and we will email you that information at the end of November.

Just FYI… This year we have had very little change to our enrollment.  This means that there are still siblings on our wait lists hoping to be offered a spot this year.  With the exception of 3-year-old Preschool, we are fully enrolled in all grades.  Our suggestion is to enroll students at the Preschool level to ensure your child can continue enrollment into our Elementary grades.

Questions about enrollment? Please contact Brycie at bstrother@dcsdk12.org or call 720-531-3309.

Parent Book Club

September 28, 2017 @ 7:08 am posted by Brycie Strother

Welcome to our Parent Book Club.  Check out our schedule and planned book list.

Join us for a fun discussion / social hour on Monday, October 23rd.  Our meeting is from 7-9pm at the DCS Montessori Main Campus, 311 Castle Pines Parkway, Castle Pines, CO 80108.

Our current book is  Montessori: The Science Behind the Genius by Angeline Stoll Lillard.  Available on Kindle and in print.

MontOne hundred years ago, Maria Montessori, the first female physician in Italy, devised a very different method of educating children, based on her observations of how they naturally learn. In Montessori, Angeline Stoll Lillard shows that science has finally caught up with Maria Montessori. Lillard presents the research behind eight insights that are foundations of Montessori education, describing how each of these insights is applied in the Montessori classroom. In reading this book, parents and teachers alike will develop a clear understanding of what happens in a Montessori classroom and, more important, why it happens and why it works. Lillard, however, does much more than explain the scientific basis for Montessori’s system: Amid the clamor for evidence-based education, she presents the studies that show how children learn best, makes clear why many traditional practices come up short, and describes an ingenious alternative that works. Now with a foreword by Renilde Montessori, the youngest grandchild of Maria Montessori, Montessori offers a wealth of insights for anyone interested in education.
