Greetings and welcome to the New Year. We are busily approaching the end of the open enrollment season, ramping up for registration in the 2017-2018 school year, and nearing the graduation for the Class of 2017!
St. Vrain Valley Schools invites the public to review and provide feedback regarding the selection of a pilot program for the 2017-2018 school year in the areas of elementary school mathematics and high school social studies.
The committee has narrowed down the choices of instructional programs and would like the community to help make the decision on which program to pilot. Each review will take place in the lobby of the Learning Services Center, 401 S. Pratt Pkwy. on the following dates:
For many of us, the end of the calendar year provides an opportunity to reflect on the previous year – our successes, challenges and the experiences that will continue to shape our future and the people who have had an impact on our lives. For the students, teachers and staff of St. Vrain Valley Schools, 2016 will be remembered as a critical time in the further advancement of high-quality public education in our community.

Silver Creek's Leadership Academy celebrated its 3rd Capstone Project Expo on Monday, December 12.
The focus of the Leadership Academy is to help students gain hands-on leadership experience and build skills related to ethics, communication, critical and creative thinking, respect, vision and teamwork. There are currently 325 students in the program from grades 9 to 12.
With first semester all but in the books at this point, I would like to take the opportunity to share with you several of the events currently occurring at Silver Creek High School. While our first semester brought some new challenges, we have also experienced unprecedented successes amongst our students and faculty.
