Each spring, the Education Foundation for the St. Vrain Valley hosts the Tribute to Teachers, which honors and recognizes the excellence of our teachers. Students, parents, colleagues and community members are invited to nominate teachers, and three from each school are selected to attend the event as finalists. During the event, one teacher from each school receives an Encore Award and a $100 gift card. Additionally, several teachers are honored as Spotlight educators and one as Teacher of the Year for their outstanding efforts on behalf of their schools and students.
The St. Vrain Valley School District has PLC/Late Start Days once per month throughout the school year (except for January). These days allow teachers to meet in Professional Learning Communities to increase the academic rigor at Erie High School and improve teachers' Tier I Best Teaching Practices. These meetings take place from 7:30 - 9:55am.
On these days, classes do not begin until 10:00 am and follow a modified schedule for the rest of the day. The schedule is as follows:
Spring Break is a full ten days this year! This is due to students not having school on Friday, March 23rd. Students will return on Monday, April 2nd with a regular Day 1 schedule.
Many students find it helpful to work on missing assignments over Spring Break. Speak with your teacher to find out if there is anything in particular you should be working on to turn in after you return on Monday, April 2nd.
Be safe, have fun and relax so that you will be all charged up to finish the school year strong.
If your student requested a college class for the 2018-2019 school year ("concurrent enrollment") there are several steps that need to be taken to ensure that the class is approved for payment and that you are registered for the college credit.
