As we close out this calendar year, we can’t help but reflect on how incredible 2018 has been for the Foundation and for Douglas County students. We have so much to be grateful for this holiday season, including the opportunity to provide support for our students at much higher levels than previous years. Thank you all for being a part of it.

From purchasing a new StarLab planetarium for the district, to funding teacher professional development, to investing in school-based tech projects, to honoring educators through the Apple Awards, we are inspired to see our community come together to support our students, schools and teachers. We want to take a moment to say thank you for your support and partnership throughout the year. We hope your holiday season is pure magic; filled with love, laughter and lots of amazing surprises.

We wish you all the happiest celebration during the holidays and beyond!

The Apple Awards showcase the achievements and dedication
of Douglas County School District educators and staff. 
The nomination window is open! Nominations are now video or written testimonials - more personal, more powerful and visible to more people. Nominate your favorite DCSD educator or staff member.
Your support underwrites the participation of the teachers and staff being honored for this exclusive event, and facilitates appreciation and recognition of their hard work.
The Apple Awards has been reimagined. The Reveal Party is an exclusive opportunity for district employees to gather together and celebrate!
