Jalali Hartman said Thursday that prior to working with St. Vrain Valley students, he didn't know what they'd be capable of, but that he was ultimately impressed. He even joked that he has been left wondering why he needs to hire anyone.
St. Vrain Valley School District has once again partnered with the Center for Resource Conservation to host the ReNew Our Schools energy conservation competition. The month long competition began February 2nd and ended on March 2nd. This year, 12 schools participated, and will be honored at a recognition ceremony on March 9th.
The USDA and Colorado Department of Education Office of School Nutrition recently awarded 12 St. Vrain Valley schools with HealthierUS School Challenge: Smarter Lunchrooms (HUSSC: SL) Bronze Awards.
The HUSSC: SL is a certification initiative that recognizes schools for their efforts in improving food and beverage offerings, teaching kids about nutritious food choices, providing opportunities for physical activity, and having supportive school wellness policies.
Right before the winter break, the parent involvement team at Rocky Mountain Elementary collaborated around the idea of bringing parents together to witness STEM learning with their children. The result was STEM night.
