St. Vrain Valley Schools offers robust summer programming options to keep students engaged in their academic learning.
Erie Middle School Step Up Program
Erie Middle School is excited to once again offer our optional Step Up program for 5th graders who will be attending our school as incoming 6th grade students during the 2023-24 school year. We understand that some students and families can feel uncertain about what transition from elementary school to middle school may hold, and our hope is to give our students the opportunity to spend time in the school to increase their comfort and skills prior to the first day. This program is designed for students who might need a little additional support and encouragement to help them have a successful start to the new school year. We will work to build foundational skills and confidence in reading, writing, math, and organization.
There is no cost associated with this program, however, space is limited and available on a first come, first served basis. Jumpstart will be held August 7th and 8th from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Details are forthcoming regarding the transportation that will be provided. If you have further questions regarding our Step Up program, please call Sara Raver at 303-828-3391.
