Parents & Guardians,
Our annual state testing (CMAS) in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade will be underway this week! 3rd and 4th graders will be testing in Math and English Language Arts, and 5th grade will be testing in Math, English Language Arts, and Science. We are proud of our Cougars and we know they will try their very best. 

We are so excited that the district art show is back and in-person! St. Vrain’s Unframed Student Art Show will be held at the Boulder County Fairgrounds from April 12-17. The event is free and open to the public from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. daily. There will be a special open house celebration on April 14 from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. A big thank you to Ms. Mocilac for her hard work to display as much Niwot Elementary art work as possible. We have amazing artists and I hope you all have an opportunity to stop by the fairgrounds. 

Also coming soon is the Scholastic Book Fair. Please see below for the important details and volunteer opportunities. This event is always a favorite for our students and we are super happy to be able to offer it this year. Thank you, Ms. Kelly, for all of your hard work to make this happen for our students and families. 

Have a great weekend and please let me know how I can support you.

We need parent volunteers to help set up and / or work during the book fair. If you are interested, please email Molly Walsh at

Here are some important details regarding the Book Fair, which will take place from April 25th - 28th:

1) . The primary method of payment for students at the Book Fair is eWallet, a safe and secure alternative to cash. Simply create a free account to add funds and/or invite family and friends to contribute so your child can select their own books. Any unused funds can be spent at The Scholastic Store Online or to fund a future eWallet. Get started with eWallet here

2). If you can’t make it to the Fair, then shop at our school’s Online Book Fair. All orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25. Your online orders will also benefit our school! Learn more about online shopping here

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Ms. Kelly

We have the Lost and Found items out in front of the school. Please take a moment to stop by the school to claim any of your missing items. 
The character trait for April is Self Discipline. Thank you for discussing this important trait with your child at home. 

Hey, innovators! We’re looking for students who are risk-takers, thinkers,  curious, persistent, creative, and interdependent. Join us at Innovation Academy for a week of design thinking, inquiry-based learning, and lots and lots of prototyping, where you’ll have tons of fun as we find solutions to the world’s most pressing issues! (Well… from the perspective of an elementary-aged student!) We’ll use the human centered process called Design Thinking to uncover needs, brainstorm ideas, and bring some of those ideas to life!  Check out this link for more information or to register! Registration opened March 14, and space is limited!

Important Note: This is a date change from last weeks newsletter!
