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.
Kindergarteners in Ms. Rachel Etherington's kindergarten class exchanged letters with the 169th Artillery Brigade while they were stationed in the United Arab Emirates. The kindergarteners, led by a child whose father serves in the military, decided to take action to support troops serving overseas. Not only did the students get to exchange letters with their new pen pals, practicing their reading and writing skills, they also learned about American symbols as a part of their Signs and Symbols unit of inquiry.
