Thanks to a grant from LCF, the LES Garden Project is expanding. We have added two full sets of grow light shelves which the 1st grade students have started to fill with seeds ready to germinate. Many of these seeds will then go into addtional garden beds being added into our existing Garden. A new Butterfly Garden learning area is also in the works for our garden area, this spring. We will be germinating and planting milkweed, verbena, marigolds, sweet peas and sunflowers to add to this area.
For the second summer in a row, the Young Americans Center for Financial Education, a Denver-based pioneering nonprofit, will lead its award-winning, week-long Young Ameritowne on the Road Summer Camp, for students entering third through sixth grade, at Sunset Middle School. The traveling camp is a recent innovation, bringing the camp, which covers financial literacy, local government and workplace readiness, from the Denver center to offsite locations.
This weekend, the St. Vrain District Technology team will be continuing to upgrade, enhance and maintain our technology infrastructure and some systems may be temporarily unavailable for student, parent or staff access. If you have any questions, please contact the St. Vrain Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-702-7730.
