It has been an outstanding start to the academic year and I want to thank our students, families, teachers, staff and other partners for continuing to support St. Vrain Valley Schools’ drive for excellence in serving our community and advancing public education.
In this month's issue of the Family Connections Newsletter, we explore Inquiry-Based Learning, Thinking Differently About Digital Devices, and visit with one of our schools as they learn about Slam Poetry with local expert Joaquin Zihuatanejo in partnership with High Plains Library System.
We had a great turnout this morning for 100 Mile Club! Although the temperatures are starting to cool down, this is still a great time of year to accumulate miles towards a goal. When January hits and we are inside and having to walk it becomes a bit more difficult to gain big miles like we can right now. Speaking of miles we are almost at 2,200 miles as a school this year, unreal!
Thank you for your partnership as we continue to advance the academic success and well-being of our students. Communication throughout our community is essential to ensuring the ongoing safety of our community. Toward this end, we would like to share important inclement weather information so that your family can be prepared in the event severe weather results in the closure or delay of our schools.
