On February 23rd, Madeline Johnson, LES 5th grader and winner of the LES Spelling Bee, participated in the Regional Spelling Bee in Boulder. Maddie did an amazing job, going 5 rounds before going out on the word "inselberg" (a word Maddie says she hadn't even heard of)! She aced words like "exuberant and erudite" and says she really enjoyed the experience. We are so proud of you, Maddie!
Across the district, we have been championing a new motivational motto that is uniting our shared vision for excellence in learning and student advancement: We are taking public education by #StVrainStorm! Every day, I observe countless examples of students, teachers, staff, and community partners exemplifying the highest levels of achievement and drive that represent the very best of our public schools. Our graduation rates are at their highest level – over 90 percent at our traditional schools – and St. Vrain was also one of only four districts in Colorado and 373 nationally to be recognized by College Board’s Annual AP District Honor Roll. Enrollment in Advanced Placement (AP) courses has increased by 50 percent since 2014 with over 3,000 students enrolled in at least one AP class.
