We had a great turnout this morning and a ton of participants are hitting the 25 mile mark with a good number now hitting 50 miles! Thank you always to our volunteer crew that help hand out runner bar codes, run the scanners, and update our 100 mile club charts in the cafeteria.
Another big thank you to Brown's Shoe Fit on Main Street for donating the shoe laces as an added incentive for kids that hit 50 miles!
Believe it or not, we are ready to take registrations for our Camp Invention program coming up in June of 2018! Next summer, camp will be at Longmont Estates from June 25th-29th. I will serve as camp director for the 3rd year, and look forward to having teachers from Longmont Estates as our instructors. This year, Camp Invention is offering a payment option if you register before March, as well as a discount. Flyers will be sent home in Thursday folders throughout the year, but please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions at any time.
We are very excited to announce that Longmont Estates Elementary will once again participate, with other schools in the district, in our Annual Food Drive. In the past we have collected close to 40,000 pounds of food district wide and we hope to exceed that number this year. LEE's annual food drive is November 27th- December 13th. All the food collected will benefit Boulder County Community Food Share.
The St. Vrain Valley Schools’ Senior Volunteer Program is once again available for the 2017-2018 school year.

Up to 200 participants will be paid a maximum of 40 hours at $10.20 per hour for a total of $408 between January 2, 2018 and April 30, 2018.
Across St. Vrain Valley Schools, we are advancing public education for our community, state and nation.
