a letter from the superintendent

August 5, 2022

Welcome to the 2022-23 school year!

Indeed, this is a very special year as Cheyenne Mountain School District celebrates its Sesquicentennial. Since 1872, our beloved district has educated multiple generations of children and helped them to grow into well-rounded young adults, prepared to succeed in an ever-changing world. This tradition of excellence continues 150 years later, as our students excel in academics, the arts, and athletics. In fact, despite the lingering challenges of the pandemic during the first semester of the 2021-22 school year, we were still able to keep the vast majority of our students and staff at school for in-person learning. This, along with our parents' unwavering support, afforded our educators, support staff, and coaches the opportunity to make great strides with our students who, in turn, achieved numerous academic accolades, recognitions in the arts, and athletic championships.

This year, we will continue to focus our efforts on improved teaching and learning, mental health wellness for students and staff, and future learning opportunities for our students, including our technology initiatives, college and career pathways, and other professional career internships as we strive to develop well-prepared graduates. We will also continue to enhance the safety and security of our campuses, open our doors to our cherished parents and volunteers, as well as increase our community engagement through our new website and app.

We look forward to commemorating our incredible milestone anniversary at Bartolin Hall at the Broadmoor on Saturday, October 1, 2022 at 6pm, hosted by our Tradition of Excellence Foundation. This momentous occasion is open to all members of our Cheyenne Mountain community. We encourage each of you to join us as we celebrate 150 years of excellence.

Please accept my enthusiastic welcome to each of you as we return for a new school year and continue our tradition of excellence for all of our students!

My best,


Dr. David J. Peak
