Students in grades 3-5 had an opportunity to try their wands with some Muggle Magic during the September late start. Presented by CU Discovery, students took part in a "potions" class and learned about chemistry and magic that surrounds us everyday. They got up close and personal with "extenuo"--quicksand, "solido"--troll boogers, and "evanesco"--dissappearing fluids. It was a great way to make literature come alive through science!
St. Vrain Valley Schools is one of the fastest growing and most innovative school districts in the nation. This is a result of strong leadership and a commitment to strengthening infrastructure, technology, high-quality instruction and overall student achievement.

Normally, our common sense protects us from looking directly at the sun for more than a second.
Earlier this year, 40 students in grades K-5 participated in our 2nd Annual Innovation Fair. Because of their participation, they were invited to join us for the Great Space Escape! The Denver Museum of Nature and Science brought a 20+ foot tall inflatable dome which serves as a traveling planetarium. Students got up close and personal with stars, constellations, and planets! They learned the story of how Cassiopeia was put up into the night sky, took a tour of Europa, and zoomed out of the Milky Way galaxy.
Do you ever miss that sense of exploration and curiosity you had as a kid? If the answer is ‘yes,’ we have the event for you.
