Each spring, the Education Foundation for the St. Vrain Valley hosts the Tribute to Teachers, which honors and recognizes the excellence of our teachers. Students, parents, colleagues and community members are invited to nominate teachers, and three from each school are selected to attend the event as finalists. During the event, one teacher from each school receives an Encore Award and a $100 gift card. Additionally, several teachers are honored as Spotlight educators and one as Teacher of the Year for their outstanding efforts on behalf of their schools and students.
There’s an old saying that “To catch a thief, you have to think like one.” For five intense days, two teams of Niwot High School (NHS) girls rewired their thought processes to compete in a computer security challenge to thwart cybercrime.
Public education is the cornerstone of our democracy. The impact of our schools and their role in shaping the future success of our society extends far beyond the smart boards, desks and walls of our classrooms. From economic development, to national security, to home and commercial property values, to business and corporate development, and community growth, our public schools provide a strong foundation for advancing the quality of our lives and the direction of our future.

Niwot High assistant principal Andrea Smith's student-centered approach and success leading the school's one-to-one technology roll-out has garnered her statewide recognition.
Smith recently was named the 2018 Colorado Assistant Principal of the Year for Secondary Schools. In the spring, Niwot High's Principal Eric Rauschkolb was named the 2017 Colorado Secondary School Principal of the Year.
"Anything that celebrates the work we're doing as a school and as a team is awesome," Smith said.
