Dear Denver South Students and Families,
We hope you had a great week. Last week our very own Bryant Quezada-Lopez
made 9news Prep honor roll for his awesome basket at our Prep Rally. He is now in the running for play of the week! There is still time to go vote for him using the link below.

Next week we will be celebrating the 50th year anniversary of Title IX. Title IX has helped focus attention on meeting the needs of girls/women interested in athletics and helped education officials to recognize their responsibilities regarding the provision of equal athletic opportunity. The result has been increased involvement of girls and women in sports at all levels.
No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.
Our athletics department will be hosting a breakfast for our athletes in our girls sports programs, featuring multiple speakers from the womens’ sports world. This event will take place next Thursday at 8am in the main gym. You can see more information below.
Have a great weekend!
