Today's graduation ceremony was a momentous occasion in for our 2018 graduates and their families. Photos provided by the district communications team are now online - we will be adding other photos and videos as they become available.
We asked graduating seniors to write letters of appreciation to a teacher that played the greatest role in shaping their future. What the students didn't know is that we also asked the teachers to write them a letter of appreciation and recognition of how much they've grown and the impact they had on their classroom and lives.
Thank you for your continued partnership and unwavering support which has contributed significantly to student achievement and success. I am deeply appreciative of our community, as you have consistently demonstrated your value for public education through the generous passage of several mill levy overrides and bond initiatives, among many other ways that you have strengthened our schools. Together with our excellent teachers and staff, our students are receiving the benefit of an outstanding education.
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.
Each spring, the Education Foundation for the St. Vrain Valley hosts the Tribute to Teachers, which honors and recognizes the excellence of our teachers. Students, parents, colleagues and community members are invited to nominate teachers, and three from each school are selected to attend the event as finalists. During the event, one teacher from each school receives an Encore Award and a $100 gift card. Additionally, several teachers are honored as Spotlight educators and one as Teacher of the Year for their outstanding efforts on behalf of their schools and students.
Studying for the math portion of the SAT has never been easier thanks to Beyoncé and a group of Frederick High School students.
Frederick High Senior Josephine Murphy and her classmates created a video to help students across St. Vrain Valley Schools solve upper algebra equations to the tune of Beyoncé’s “All the Single Ladies.”
“Now you really, really, really have to factor it,” the students sing. “Now you have to set up an equation and then you have to solve for two answers.”
