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.

Government students at Longmont's Silver Creek High School got a firsthand lesson on the judicial system on Monday, listening to oral arguments in two appeals court cases in their auditorium.

One student asked the judges about the dress code, noting they all wore the same color gray suits. The judges joked that they "shared an email" to coordinate. Another asked the lawyers if they get nervous before arguing a case, with one admitting that he used to throw up before trials.
