Prairie Ridge fifth graders Miles Anna and Drew Hershey didn’t know each other when the school year began but now they’re teaching each other basketball tricks and high-fiving in the halls between classes.
Miles and Drew are among the first students to participate in Prairie Ridge Elementary School’s Red Shirt Program, which launched in the fall.
It's that time of year again. The school year is about over and we're wondering how the kids will eat since the school is not furnishing a lunch. The answer is simple: come to Clem Dufore Park in Dacono between 12:00-1:00pm Monday through Friday and they can have a hot mea. The Park Lunch will begin June 11.
Encore Award Nominees Lisa Grant, Holly Viejobueno, and Sherry Zamudio attended the Education Foundation Tribute to Teachers Award Banquet on Friday, May 11th along with Prairie Ridge Principal, Jill Lliteras and Dean of Students, Laura Anna.
Congratulations to Ms. Grant for receiving the Encore Award for Prairie Ridge!
On April 16th to April 22nd, the St. Vrain Valley School District hosted the annual Art Show at the Boulder County Fairgrounds. Prairie Ridge Elementary School featured varying mediums including clay, drawings, paintings, and weavings.
Some of our very own PRES students received an award for their artwork!
Thank you for your continued partnership and unwavering support which has contributed significantly to student achievement and success. I am deeply appreciative of our community, as you have consistently demonstrated your value for public education through the generous passage of several mill levy overrides and bond initiatives, among many other ways that you have strengthened our schools. Together with our excellent teachers and staff, our students are receiving the benefit of an outstanding education.
As we move closer to the end of another outstanding year in St. Vrain Valley Schools, I want to take a moment to recognize the achievements and growth we have seen across our system. In the coming weeks, we will be championing the thousands of students who will be transitioning to kindergarten, middle school, high school or graduating with their St. Vrain Valley Schools diploma. It is through our outstanding educators, dedicated parents and unwavering community support that we have seen our students and schools excel to the highest levels of achievement.
An artist can find inspiration in the world around them. From majestic photography to the fine details in drawings, painting and pottery, St. Vrain students shine at this year’s districtwide Art Show, Unframed.
This annual art show will showcase various works of art representing a wide variety of forms and media used by student artists. Works of art include paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography, design, new media and much more from students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. And, every school in the district is represented at this show.
