Playing tag has taken on a satisfying twist.   

We at Douglas ESD are continuing our seasonal tradition by setting up our gift tree for local families who could use some holiday cheer. Here's how it works: The tree is decorated with colored tags that match the hues of the boxes flanking the tree. Anyone is welcome to pull a tag or tags, buy the item(s) described on the tag and then place unwrapped gifts in the box matching the color of the tag. (It helps if you attach the tag to the purchase.)

Grant sends ECSE classroom teacher to Ireland

Douglas ESD's Annie Bailey, a classroom teacher for the Early Childhood Special Education program, is one of 21 Douglas County eductors who will have great stories to tell this fall about how they spent their summers. That's because Bailey and the others are embarking on self-designed summer professional development experiences as grant recipients of The Family Ford Foundation's 2016 Douglas County Fund for Teachers.
