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.

Technology is such an integral part of daily operations that is second nature to our students. This generation of students will be the first to never know life before the internet or cell phones. For parents and guardians, navigating these new opportunities can also bring uncertainties of how to have conversations about technology use at school and home.

Mead Elementary started The Summer Fun Reading Program this year that opens up their school library to the community from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. every Tuesday.
Recognizing the Town of Mead does not have a public library, Jennifer Stanich, a kindergarten teacher at Mead Elementary, developed the idea to open up their school library during the summer after attending a similar program at Fall River Elementary with her children.
