It has been an outstanding start to the 2018-2019 academic year and I want to express my deep appreciation to our community for your continued partnership and support in advancing student achievement. In Colorado and across the United States, St. Vrain Valley Schools is leading the conversation on how to build a highly-successful public education system that is not only giving our students a strong competitive advantage for their future success, but also having a significant impact on the economic growth and overall health of our community.
St. Vrain Valley Schools is one of the fastest growing and most innovative school districts in the nation. This is a result of strong leadership and a commitment to strengthening infrastructure, technology, high-quality instruction and overall student achievement.
This success is also built upon interconnected partnerships with our teachers, staff, students, parents, business and corporate partners, and elected officials. As St.
Grand View is excited to offer 100 Mile Club to our students and families, promoting opportunities for movement outside of the school day. As 100 Mile Club participants, students track the miles they walk or run during the designated times at the school and at 100 Mile Club sanctioned community events. This allows ALL students to participate and is a great way to combine all of their activity towards a common goal - walking or running 100 miles during the school year.

One of the most important institutions in our society is public education. Of the approximately 55 million K-12 aged children in the United States, it is estimated that 90 percent are enrolled in public schools. Second only to parenting, the longstanding institution of public education will have the greatest influence on America’s future.
In Colorado, we’ve experienced an ongoing discussion around the adequacy of resources for our public schools with mixed results.
