The story of the bell...
The iconic bell in front of Louisville Elementary School has become a hallmark of many first and last day of school photos, but did you know the history of the bell dates back over 140 years?
The Louisville History Museum researched the history of the bell and shared their findings with us. It is strongly believed the bell dates back to 1881, which is the year that the Louisville Grade School at Spruce and Jefferson opened. This is now the site of Memory Square Park. Local historian Carolyn Conarroe did research and states in her book "Louisville Legends" that the bell dates back to 1881. Also, the bell can be seen in the school's bell tower in historic photos that are from before 1903, which is the year that the school was remodeled and enlarged. This makes the bell one of the oldest artifacts from Louisville's history, as Louisville was founded in 1878 and incorporated in 1882. The bell was manufactured by Goulds Mfg. Co. of Seneca Falls, NY. It is 33 inches in diameter and weighs approximately 700 pounds. When Louisville Elementary School opened its doors in 1964, the bell was relocated to the front of the building. Now our community can enjoy this piece of Louisville history each time they visit our school!

The Boulder Valley School District Board of Education voted on Tuesday, June 7 to change its 2022-23 Academic Calendar. Please Note: Spring Break will be shifting a week later next school year (22-23), to align Boulder Valley School District’s calendar to the University of Colorado Boulder.
The Boulder Valley School District celebrated three teams with new awards during the Impact on Education Awards ceremony on May 24.
It has been another challenging year for our school district and community, as we continue to navigate the impacts of the pandemic, the mass shooting and now the Marshall Fire. I’m incredibly proud of the way that we have come together following so much tragedy over the past few years. As a school district, we will continue to wrap our arms around impacted kids and families.
A year after the tragedy at the King Soopers in Table Mesa, we are once again mourning today. This time, it is for at least 19 students and two teachers who needlessly lost their lives in a mass shooting at an elementary school in Texas, just two days before the end of their school year.
This summer 54 athletes will represent Team Colorado at the 2022 USA Special Olympic Games in Orlando, Florida. Two of the distinguished athletes selected to compete include Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) student Michelle Zhang (tennis) and BVSD alum Leigh Shafer (swimming).
Boulder Valley School District’s Grad Plus program was built on the idea that every student should graduate from high school in BVSD with more than a diploma.
