Family STEM Night brought together members of the community, families, staff and students! There were “Student Powered Projects” displayed, hands-on demonstrations, exploration with some of our un-plugged materials and a chance to peek into our Fox Forge Maker Space.

Spring has officially arrived, and on April 17th, UNFRAMED, the district-wide art show, begins! Join the SVVSD in celebrating the artistic talents of the St. Vrain Valley students.
