Superintendent’s Update

Dear St. Vrain Valley Community,

As we approach our 2024 graduation celebration, I want to take a moment to recognize the unwavering drive, strength of character, and rigorous academic preparation that our approximately 2,200 graduates have demonstrated throughout their time in St. Vrain. The thunderous applause that they will receive as they walk across the stage to receive their diploma is not only a testament to their many outstanding achievements; it also serves as a symbol of our community’s enduring commitment to the continued success of our students, teachers, staff, parents, and community. It is an honor to stand alongside our Board of Education, teachers, staff, parents, administrators, and other community partners to celebrate the Class of 2024 and recognize their significant accomplishments.

From their preschool years to the present, these graduates have earned unprecedented levels of achievement and success. The Class of 2024 has excelled in high-quality instructional focus academies, including Biomedical Sciences, Business, Energy, Engineering and Aerospace, Medical and BioScience, Leadership, STEM, Visual and Performing Arts, Pathways to Teaching (P-TEACH), Pathways in Technology Early College High School Associate Degree Program (P-TECH), and more. They have been highly engaged in their school communities, participating in co-curricular activities, including the arts, music, athletics, and numerous advanced career and technology programs. Their hours spent engaged in work-based internships and community service are also nothing less than impressive.

Further, our graduates have enrolled in a record number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and concurrent enrollment college-level courses, giving them a leading start on their postsecondary education, with thousands of college credits already on their transcripts, saving families millions of dollars in future tuition costs. Our seniors have also received numerous recognitions for their academic achievements, talents, and innovative ideas, including Boettcher Scholarships, Daniels Scholarships, National Merit semifinalists and finalists, All-State athletes, All-State musicians, and acceptance letters from many of America’s highly competitive colleges, universities, and military institutions.

Public education is one of the most powerful systems for driving positive change in our society, and we have no greater responsibility than ensuring that every child in our community receives a rigorous, engaging, and high-quality education. St. Vrain Valley Schools prepares our students for a complex, highly-technical, and globalized world, and to move beyond graduation with a strong competitive advantage and a drive for learning and continued growth.

To our graduating seniors, I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude and wish you the very best in life. You are truly a compassionate, dedicated, and innovative class who will boldly lead our country into the future. I am incredibly proud of you.

Don Haddad, Ed.D.
