Eco-Cycle has invited us to join in a contest to increase recycling at our school, and possibly win $$ for our school, too! The contest will run until Spring Break. Student Council made posters and have been making weekly announcements to encourage our students to recycle in the lunchroom. Our goal is to increase the amount of recyclable items here at school that end up in recycling instead of the trash, especially drink containers.
Greetings from the Learning Lab To all the families that participated in the Spring Conference PTO Book Exchange, thank you. It was the most successful Exchange yet. Hundreds of books were donated and adopted into new homes. Congratulations to our community of generous readers. You Rock!
Guess What? We want you back. Help us re-label our nonfiction library books. No prior experience or library knowledge is necessary for you to come and help.
I am excited to announce that there are currently three local businesses proudly displaying a selection of artwork created by Fall River Students: Nicolo’s Pizza, Mac’s Place, and Twisted Roots. If you happen to be at any of these establishments, please take the opportunity to enjoy the artwork on display and scan the QR code, which will link to Artsonia and allow you to see more great Fall River student artwork.
Student safety is a top priority across St. Vrain Valley Schools. This is the core of our work and we are committed to a consistently proactive approach to fulfilling our highest responsibility – ensuring the well-being, safety and growth of our children. We have implemented many programs and protocols to ensure the highest levels of school security, many of which are being replicated across the state and nationally. Along the way, we have heavily involved our community in shaping the safety and quality of our learning environments. In the past year alone, we have featured stories in district publications, developed news articles, earned media coverage, delivered school presentations and hosted 12 public meetings across every community in our district – all emphasizing our work to increase school safety and support student advancement.
Public education is the cornerstone of our democracy. The impact of our schools and their role in shaping the future success of our society extends far beyond the smart boards, desks and walls of our classrooms. From economic development, to national security, to home and commercial property values, to business and corporate development, and community growth, our public schools provide a strong foundation for advancing the quality of our lives and the direction of our future.
