Dear St. Vrain Valley Community,
Public education is the cornerstone of our democracy. The impact of our schools and their role in shaping the future success of our society extends far beyond the smart boards, desks and walls of our classrooms. From economic development, to national security, to home and commercial property values, to business and corporate development, and community growth, our public schools provide a strong foundation for advancing the quality of our lives and the direction of our future.
Across St. Vrain Valley Schools, I am incredibly proud of the great work and academic advancement demonstrated by our outstanding teachers, staff, students and dedicated community partners who support the continued success of our schools and programs. Every day, I hear amazing stories of student excellence – Boettcher Scholarship finalists; a student achieving a perfect score on a global AP Research Exam; countless hours of volunteer service with community organizations; and many students winning state competitions in athletics and the arts – the achievements are numerous.
In every school and program across St. Vrain, our students, teachers and staff are achieving high levels of success while also having an impact on their communities and beyond. This month in The Newsroom (click here to access), we feature just a few of the many examples of student learning extending beyond the traditional classroom environment which positively impact our world. Please join me in celebrating these great achievements and thank you for your continued partnership in advancing public education and our community.
Don Haddad, Ed.D.
Superintendent, St. Vrain Valley Schools
