FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL THURSDAY, AUGUST 17TH, 2017
Welcome to Denver Green School
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.
DGS Is Happy To Announce The Launch Of Our School App
The Denver Green School app will serve as our primary means of communication to all families. We are thrilled to say that the app is fully customizable to your primary language. You will be receiving important information about school news, events, access to our calendar, the lunch menu, athletic information and more in the most efficient and easiest way possible! To download the new DGS app: for Android users, go to Google Play and for iOS, go to App Store and search Denver Green School. Be sure to register your app to let us know you are good to go!
DGS Movie Night
DGS Community Movie Night: Thursday August 3rd at 8:00 p.m.
Come one, come all. Join us for a fun, "Summer Night at the Movies" on the DGS field. We will be showing the movie "Princess Bride" starting at 8:00 p.m. but feel free to come a little early to connect with old friends and meet new ones.
What to bring: Bring a dessert/snack to share and please bring a school supply to donate to DGS. (We are especially in need of small white boards and white board markers.) Bring a blanket or chairs to sit on too. We can't wait to see you there.
*Special thanks to Rachel Rubin and the Jessica Zalkin Realty Group for providing all the movie and all costs related to the evening.
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
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!
