As St. Vrain Valley Schools continues to advance our programs that support our youngest learners, we are proud to announce a new partnership with the LENA Research Foundation and the OUR Center in Longmont that will prepare infants and toddlers (0-3 years) for school by encouraging parents to talk and engage more with their children.
Do you ever miss that sense of exploration and curiosity you had as a kid? If the answer is ‘yes,’ we have the event for you. St. Vrain Valley Schools is hosting its first ever VEX Robotics Showcase from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 9. Open to the public, the event an evening of the same fun, hands-on robotics play, learning and experimentation that St. Vrain students relish day-in and day-out, in both class and extracurricular settings.

Parent-teacher conferences are looking much different these days.
Five of the district’s schools, Indian Peaks, Columbine and Northridge Elementary schools, Longs Peak Middle School and Timberline PK-8, are rolling out supportive, community-oriented “Classroom Conferences” to rave reviews, replacing those awkward one-to-one meetings.

Jalali Hartman said Thursday that prior to working with St. Vrain Valley students, he didn't know what they'd be capable of, but that he was ultimately impressed. He even joked that he has been left wondering why he needs to hire anyone.
Think back to when you were a student, back-to-school shopping, finding your classroom, and the exciting lessons that would soon fill your day. The first day of school jitters that were calmed by the friendly, welcoming face, and celebrating the “ah ha” moments when you finally figured out how to solve the problem. Then there was the time in kindergarten, when you went to the restroom but couldn’t remember the way back to your classroom. As panic set in, that friendly face walked around the corner and they knew exactly where your classroom was.
