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. The program began in November 2012 to welcome seniors and individuals with disabilities into our schools and provide them financial assistance with their county property taxes. 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. St. Vrain prepares students for their future by giving them a strong competitive advantage that will empower their success in a complex globalized economy. Learn more in the 2017-2018 edition of St. Vrainnovation Magazine, now available online.
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.

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!
