Dahlia Brings Home Gold at Science Olympiad!

Congratulations to our Dahlia Heights Science Olympiad Team who won Science Olympiad Gold on Saturday, March 2nd in the Science Olympiad competition at Occidental College.  A special thank you goes out to their Science Coach Mrs. Daniel and the many parent volunteers for all their hard work and dedication over the past few months to prepare our team. We are very proud of all team members. 


Through Difficult Times, Dahlia Community Stays Strong!

Dahlia parents, students, and staff brought tons of support, strike-force, and sustenance! to the teachers in their struggle for smaller class sizes and more support staff. Teachers felt the love!


Walk-to-School Day Was a Huge Success!

Thank you! for lacing up those shoes, pumping up those tires, and scooting on your scooters to help make our Walk-to-School Day so successful. It was a great show of community support!  The donuts and coffee were appreciated... Thank you to Cindy’s & Colorado Donuts for your donations!!

After School Programs at Dahlia

Dahlia Heights is pleased to offer two after-school programs:

E3 -  Enrichment Educational Experiences –  E3 is an After-School Fee-Based Program for K-6

Enrichment Educational Experiences/E3 Inc. was developed to fulfill the requests of parents who were seeking an after-school program that would continue the high standards and concepts of Kindergarten Enrichment. Our after-school program provides students with art, music, drama, science, language arts, chess, dance, physical education clinics and a homework/study hall hour. Please visit the attached website for information about this program.   http://enrichmentkids.com/e3/

The Beyond the Bell – Youth Services After-School Program for 2nd – 6th Grade Students

Organized games, enrichment activities, and homework assistance is provided for those students capable of independent supervision to, from, and at the playground site. It is a permissive recreation program available to students in grade 2 through 8. Children may come and go as they choose and by their own volition. The Beyond the Bell Youth Services After-School Program is not a child care program. Students do not sign-in or out. It is a privilege, not a right, to participate in the program. Children are expected to conduct themselves appropriately and may lose the opportunity to participate if their behavior is disruptive. The elementary program is for students in elementary grades (grades 2 through 5/6).
