Impacting our future. Together.

Help us Reach for the Stars!
For 16 years DCSD students have been awed and inspired by experiences in the district's portable planetarium. Sadly, the aging equipment has served its last class of students. Last December, the equipment had to be permanently retired due to unrepairable electrical problems.
On Thursday, June 14 at the Cherokee Castle and Ranch, the Foundation will be hosting the Reach for the Stars reception presented by Kaiser Permanente to raise money to purchase a Digital StarLab ®, a state-of-the-art immersive planetarium. The reception will include a sneak-peak into the Digital StarLab ®, live music and an exciting program showcasing the cutting-edge STEM education initiatives in Douglas County Schools. The evening is sure to be filled with fun and celebration, but most importantly, a generous outpouring of support for the 68,000 students that walk our halls each day.
We hope you'll join us in our campaign to replace this valuable resource. A s a district resource, the planetarium will travel from school to school, impacting thousands of students across the district each year.
