We would like to extend our thanks to our Superintendent Don Haddad and the SVVSD Administration for your collaboration, partnership and encouragement; to our locally elected officials, the St Vrain Valley Education Association, and the St. Vrain Valley Board of Education for their support on campaigns; to our elected State Senators and Representatives for answering our questions and their time spent with us at coffee houses and the Capitol; and to our SVVSD Principals and Parent Organizations for welcoming us to meetings.
