As St. Vrain Valley Schools continues to advance our programs that support our youngest learners, we are proud to announce a new partnership with the LENA Research Foundation and the OUR Center in Longmont that will prepare infants and toddlers (0-3 years) for school by encouraging parents to talk and engage more with their children.

Improving Our Children's Futures

Elementary Literacy

In Spring 2016, St. Vrain Valley Schools completed the two-year process of selecting a new keystone curricular resource for elementary literacy instruction. Through selection and pilot processes driven by classroom teachers - including input from community members as well as the biliteracy, special education, and professional development offices - the district selected ReadyGen to aid teachers in building effective holistic practices.

I Teach Because...

Think back to when you were a student, back-to-school shopping, finding your classroom, and the exciting lessons that would soon fill your day. The first day of school jitters that were calmed by the friendly, welcoming face, and celebrating the “ah ha” moments when you finally figured out how to solve the problem. Then there was the time in kindergarten, when you went to the restroom but couldn’t remember the way back to your classroom. As panic set in, that friendly face walked around the corner and they knew exactly where your classroom was.
