The St. Vrain Valley Schools’ Senior Volunteer Program is once again available for the 2017-2018 school year. The program began in November 2012 to welcome seniors and individuals with disabilities into our schools and provide them financial assistance with their county property taxes. Up to 200 participants will be paid a maximum of 40 hours at $10.20 per hour for a total of $408 between January 2, 2018 and April 30, 2018.
Across St. Vrain Valley Schools, we are advancing public education for our community, state and nation. St. Vrain prepares students for their future by giving them a strong competitive advantage that will empower their success in a complex globalized economy. Learn more in the 2017-2018 edition of St. Vrainnovation Magazine, now available online.
It has been an outstanding start to the academic year and I want to thank our students, families, teachers, staff and other partners for continuing to support St. Vrain Valley Schools’ drive for excellence in serving our community and advancing public education.
In this month's issue of the Family Connections Newsletter, we explore Inquiry-Based Learning, Thinking Differently About Digital Devices, and visit with one of our schools as they learn about Slam Poetry with local expert Joaquin Zihuatanejo in partnership with High Plains Library System.
Thank you for your partnership as we continue to advance the academic success and well-being of our students. Communication throughout our community is essential to ensuring the ongoing safety of our community. Toward this end, we would like to share important inclement weather information so that your family can be prepared in the event severe weather results in the closure or delay of our schools.
