Thank you to our community for sharing your suggestions and feedback in our name, mascot, and color selection process. We appreciated the high level of participation from our families and community members.

The results will be published on the Elementary 27 website March 15th.
The Elementary 27 Community Night scheduled for Thursday, March 8 at Legacy Elementary has been canceled. The meeting is in conflict with Superintendent Don Haddad's Annual Bond Budget Update and Safety Town Hall meeting that is scheduled from 6:00-7:30pm at Frederick High School. As student safety is of utmost importance, we do not want our community to miss out on such a pivotal discussion.
Final voting is taking place now..vote for your favorite name, mascot, and colors.
Over the past month, our community has suggested names, mascots and color options for our new school. District leadership and a volunteer review committee have narrowed down suggestions to our top selections. Please vote for your favorite in each of the categories. The results will be presented to the Board of Education who will make the final decision on March 14.
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.

Think back to a time where the phone was attached to the wall, and how excited you felt when your parents bought a longer cord, an answering machine or that magical moment when the cordless phone was brought home and you could talk to your friends in you bedroom away from your pesky sibling. Now, fast forward 20 years and staying connected is a whole new ballgame. We have all grown accustomed to the 24/7 news cycle and at times we cannot get information fast enough.
