Parent Book Club

January 2, 2017 @ 7:08 am posted by Brycie Strother

We want to welcome you to join our Parent Book Club!  Our current book is listed below ~ Read all (or even part) of the book, and come join us for a fun discussion / social hour.  Each Meeting is 7-9pm at: 102 Dorset Ct, Castle Pines, CO 80108.  Child care will be provided, Kids will have popcorn and a movie in the basement.

gritCurrent 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!

Hello Parents,

artsfestAs 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 lorraine.cooper@dcsdk12.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
