Dear St. Vrain Valley Community,
As we move closer to the end of another outstanding year in St. Vrain Valley Schools, I want to take a moment to recognize the achievements and growth we have seen across our system. In the coming weeks, we will be championing the thousands of students who will be transitioning to kindergarten, middle school, high school or graduating with their St. Vrain Valley Schools diploma. It is through our outstanding educators, dedicated parents and unwavering community support that we have seen our students and schools excel to the highest levels of achievement.
This year we have celebrated a record number of state and national champions in our schools. Never in my career have I seen such a large number of students recognized for their work outside the classroom – on top of our highest levels of academic growth, concurrent enrollment college credits, Advanced Placement exams, prestigious scholarships and so much more.
These important activities not only foster engaged school communities, but also strengthen our students by increasing academic performance, enhancing graduation rates and building essential skills such as communication, drive, teamwork, resilience, commitment and the capacity to compete. As students across St. Vrain are demonstrating excellence in leadership, advancing their academic skills and showcasing world-class sportsmanship that is systemic across our schools, they are graduating with a strong competitive advantage that will empower their success now and in the future.
In this edition of The Newsroom (click here to access), we share just a few of the hundreds of accomplishments, events and programs impacting students in every school in our district. I am incredibly proud to be a part of the St. Vrain Valley community and greatly look forward to the continued success of our students, teachers and staff.
Don Haddad, Ed.D.
