Principal's Update 6.20.18

Happy Summer to all of our Silver Creek students and families,

 

Education, and the greatness of our nation

One of the most important institutions in our society is public education. Of the approximately 55 million K-12 aged children in the United States, it is estimated that 90 percent are enrolled in public schools. Second only to parenting, the longstanding institution of public education will have the greatest influence on America’s future.
 
In Colorado, we’ve experienced an ongoing discussion around the adequacy of resources for our public schools with mixed results.

Congratulations Class of 2018

Public Education – Empowering the Future

IMPORTANT: Student Calendar Change on 4/27

Dear St. Vrain Valley Community,

Thank you for your continued partnership and unwavering support which has contributed significantly to student achievement and success. I am deeply appreciative of our community, as you have consistently demonstrated your value for public education through the generous passage of several mill levy overrides and bond initiatives, among many other ways that you have strengthened our schools. Together with our excellent teachers and staff, our students are receiving the benefit of an outstanding education.

Superintendent's Update

As we move closer to the end of another outstanding year in St. Vrain Valley Schools, I want to take a moment to recognize the achievements and growth we have seen across our system. In the coming weeks, we will be championing the thousands of students who will be transitioning to kindergarten, middle school, high school or graduating with their St. Vrain Valley Schools diploma. It is through our outstanding educators, dedicated parents and unwavering community support that we have seen our students and schools excel to the highest levels of achievement.

St. Vrain Builds a Community of Engaged Students

What began as a class assignment landed Silver Creek junior Brooke Wager at the state Capitol where she had the eyes and ears of the House Education Committee.

In March, the 16-year-old and her classmate told committee members about the limitations that expensive college tuition places on students and their families, and suggested solutions to minimize the burden.

“My perspective definitely changed from being very hesitant to feeling like I can make a difference with my voice,” Brooke said.
