St. Vrain Valley Schools Education Foundation put on another successful event at the 37th Annual Sunrise Stampede that took place on August 13. 

Over 730 participants, young and old, hit the pavement for a 5k Race or 1 Mile Fun Run to raise funds for the Special Education Teacher Innovation Grants.

This year’s event had a 20 percent increase in participants and raised over $27K. All net proceeds from the Sunrise Stampede support Teacher Innovation Grants for students with special needs in St. Vrain Valley Schools. Some of the projects funded in the past have included flexible seating, sensory tables for autism classrooms, unified percussion ensemble, and technology learning tools. 

To be considered for a 2022 Teacher Innovation Grant, St. Vrain Valley School District teachers should fill out the online application here by September 28, 2022.
