5th grade students got a chance to work with Colorado Trout Unlimited to regulate the ongoing river population following the flood and flood recovery plan. Trout Unlimited staff place equipment in the river to gather samples to be weighed and monitored. Students got a first hand chance to see, feel and work with the samples. This will be an ongoing partnership as part of the LES Science and Leadership Programing.

St. Vrain Valley Schools is accelerating into the new academic year with tremendous momentum as we continue to advance high-quality learning for all of our students. With so much to celebrate from the past year, the 2019-2020 school year promises to be an even greater moment in St. Vrain’s history.
5th grade Lyons Eco Club/Garden Club students picked the first harvest in the LES Garden today. The garden got a late start with planting last spring but has come on strong. This year seedlings were raised from seeds collected from last season's fruit- making the full circle for the first time. All harvests are donated to the Lyons Food Bank. Hundreds of pounds of produce are donated by LES each year. The LES Garden is funded by the LCF grant program and the hard work of volunteers and students.
