Several dozen teenagers stood around the perimeter of converted warehouse space in Longmont looking on as a roughly 100-pound robot zipped around, performing acrobatic turns and deftly scooping up modified milk crates before depositing them in wooden baskets high off the floor.

Congratulations Class of 2018

Public Education – Empowering the Future
 
Public education is one of the most powerful systems for driving positive change in our society. 
Across the United States, approximately 90 percent of our children attend a public school – and in the St. Vrain Valley, that percentage is even higher.

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.

Unframed Art Show

An artist can find inspiration in the world around them. From majestic photography to the fine details in drawings, painting and pottery, St. Vrain students shine at this year’s districtwide Art Show, Unframed.

This annual art show will showcase various works of art representing a wide variety of forms and media used by student artists. Works of art include paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography, design, new media and much more from students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. And, every school in the district is represented at this show.
