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.
For the second summer in a row, the Young Americans Center for Financial Education, a Denver-based pioneering nonprofit, will lead its award-winning, week-long Young Ameritowne on the Road Summer Camp, for students entering third through sixth grade, at Sunset Middle School. The traveling camp is a recent innovation, bringing the camp, which covers financial literacy, local government and workplace readiness, from the Denver center to offsite locations.
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.

Twenty-one students participated in the National Geography Bee preliminary competition at Central on Monday, December 5. It was a stringent competition right down to the final answer...the three finalists were Willa Conlin, Luke Riddle and Dacen Wach. At the final question, Dacen was named the winner! Congratulations to all the participants, especially Dacen Wach, who will continue on to the State competition in January

Central students got to experience voting today. Issues on the ballot were: Best School Lunch, Best Central Activity, and should Central have a School Flag? A lot of excitement was generated about these "ballot issues" today! Will the school pizza, chicken nuggets or crispito be the favorite lunch? Will the Firehawk Dash, Halloween Parade or the Holiday Sing-A-Long be the winning favorite activity? Stay tuned to find out if students think that Central should have a school flag!
Halloween Costume Guidelines & Celebrations-Our school day will be on a normal schedule and students are not to wear costumes to school. (Exception: preschool only!) Please try to keep things simple. All costumes must meet regular dress code guidelines found in the student handbook. Students should be able to get into their costumes without assistance, since they are not to wear the costumes during the school day.
