Did you know that 70% of the people voting on the St. Vrain mill levy override do not have children in school?

We have a big job ahead and we need your help to educate these voters about why great schools matter to them.

  • Quality schools positively impact property values
  • Quality schools make communities a desirable place to live
  • Quality schools attract businesses to our communities
  • Quality schools help reduce the crime rate and keep our communities safe

The election is only eight weeks away and your volunteer commitment during this very short time could result in an additional $14.8 million per year for our local schools.

We have been very intentional about the jobs we have selected for Grassroots St. Vrain volunteers – high impact, low time commitment. Please consider committing four hours over the next eight weeks to make a difference for your children and for your community. A small short-term time investment could lead to a big long-term impact.

Postcards (2 hours): GSV will provide you with blank postcards, addresses, and sample messages. All you have to do is address and write the postcards and return them to us. The Yes on 3A campaign will stamp and mail. Postcards are ready to be distributed now.

  • Wednesday October 3:  Complete postcards due back

Canvassing / Walk & Drop / Yard Sign Saturday (4 hours): Join teachers, business owners, parents, administrators, and community members to distribute door hangers and yard signs across the district. Whether you are comfortable knocking on doors or just distributing flyers, join us for this important event organized by the St. Vrain Valley Education Association.

  • Saturday September 29: 9:00 – 11:00 am (packet pickup) then walks to follow

Honk & Wave (2 hours): This is a great way to get the kids involved. Have them make signs or bring your yard sign to designated high traffic street corners across the district. We will advertise locations ahead of the events. Honk and Wave dates will be

  • Friday October 19: 4:00 – 6:00 pm
  • Tuesday November 6: 7:00 – 9:00 am and 4:00 – 6:00 pm

Talk to your friends and neighbors about the importance of this measure.
