Across the district, we have been championing a new motivational motto that is uniting our shared vision for excellence in learning and student advancement: We are taking public education by #StVrainStorm! Every day, I observe countless examples of students, teachers, staff, and community partners exemplifying the highest levels of achievement and drive that represent the very best of our public schools. Our graduation rates are at their highest level – over 90 percent at our traditional schools – and St. Vrain was also one of only four districts in Colorado and 373 nationally to be recognized by College Board’s Annual AP District Honor Roll. Enrollment in Advanced Placement (AP) courses has increased by 50 percent since 2014 with over 3,000 students enrolled in at least one AP class.

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.
After the arguments, the lawyers and judges answered students' questions. A small group of students also ate lunch with the judges. 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.
