Since last school year, Rocky Mountain’s Staff has been hard at work redesigning the Library. We have renamed this space the iRock Zone. The goal of the redesign is to transform the space from a traditional library setting to a center that includes books, technology, digital learning, and STEM-focused activities.
The start of a new academic year is one of my favorite times to visit our schools and talk with our students, families, teachers and staff. Our hallways are filled with a palpable optimism and drive to continue our momentum toward the highest levels of academic growth and success.
Rocky Mountain is currently experiencing a power outage and the school office is closed. We anticipate power being restored by Monday, August 7. Please plan to return to Rocky next week. You are also welcome to call 303.772.6750 and leave a message. We can return your call from our alternate location. We will keep our website updated with the most current information. You can also "like" us on Facebook, Rocky Mountain Elementary@RockyMountain Longmont, for updated information.
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.
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.
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.
