Welcome to Denver Green School
Our office will be closed on July 7th and will remain closed through August 1st.
DGS is an Innovation School located in Southeast Denver. We are now in our 7th year, and while that means we have been around a little while now, we still feel like we have so much growing and learning to do. That is good, because we are a learning institution after all. Yet, in our short existence, we do have quite a lot to be proud of: we are a National Green Ribbon School award winner and for the past four years, DGS has been identified as both a "high-performing" and "high-growth" school.
In addition to our academic success, we are proud of our "hands-on, brains-on" approach to learning where students get outside the classroom and bring learning to life. DGS is a school that focuses on integrating our sustainability curriculum with core content standards and you don't have to look far to see all the evidence of our success. We invite you to explore what makes DGS such a special place.
Free Summer Food Service for Kids
The need for nutritious meals doesn't stop during summer break. That's why Food & Nutrition Services is participating in the 2017 Summer Food Service Program. Free breakfast and lunch will be provided to all kids 18 and younger during summer break at participating schools. The Summer Food Service Program is an easy and convenient way for any child to receive a healthy meal during the summer, regardless of income and with no registration required. Adults may also purchase a meal for only $3. A list of participating schools can be found here; families can find a participating school in their neighborhoods where everyone will have access to meals. As you prepare for summer break, please share this valuable information with families in your network.
End Of Year Letter
Dear Parents & Guardians,
As we conclude another great year at DGS we would like to take a moment to thank you all for your dedication and contributions that made 2016/2017 so successful. We are grateful for all you do to make DGS the special place that it is. As we close out this year and begin working on the 2017/2018 school year we want to update you on a few things.
Community Day 2017
DGS Action News Team
The DGS Action News team is a team of Middle School students who have been working on telling the stories that make DGS special. We did several episodes last year and this was the final one in Spring 2016.
At DGS we work hard to achieve and excel in academics, but we also believe in bringing the "real world" into our classrooms. As part of the Field Studies program, teachers connect classroom learning to the real-world through "hands-on, brains-on" lessons. Click here to read all about it!
