Welcome to Skyway Elementary School! Our school opened in 2000 in the rapidly growing Coeur d'Alene Place neighborhood, and quickly gained recognition for our character education program and student achievement. Our student population varies between 500 and 600 students. Our mascot is the eagle, and we encourage our students to soar with success, just as the eagle does.
We all know that Mrs. Dana Franssen is a winner, but now it is official! Our very own office superhero was named the Coeur d'Alene School District's Classified Employee of the Month. Her nomination included stories of the difference she makes in children's daily lives, helps out parents, and keeps our school running smoothly. We are honored and proud to have Mrs. Franssen as the first person you see when you come in the front doors of Skyway.
School bus drivers and Skyway students can give out “Caught You Being Good” coupons. Every day school bus drivers, Skyway teachers and students are secretly looking for those special students who are observed behaving responsibly, demonstrating respect, showing safety or caring.
When a student is “Caught Being Good” he/she is given a coupon, takes the coupon to the office, and exchanges the coupon for a small reward. A special drawing is done at the end of the month to choose two students to receive a prize from our treasure chest. In addition, students are encouraged to bring home a note to share how proud we are of the student's great behavior.
Our staff and students are very excited about “Caught You Being Good” and we think it's a fun way to encourage our students to both demonstrate their strength of character and put forth their best academic effort.
Skyway Elementary is a GREAT place to be!
Local taxpayer support of public schools has become essential. One out of five dollars the district spends on educating our students comes from the local levy. Levy dollars fund the day-to-day operations of the district’s educational programs, bridging the gap between the funding provided by the state and the cost of meeting the educational needs of our students.
This spring’s request will include a multi-year plan to reduce class sizes and hire more teachers. The levy request will also include purchasing curriculum materials and textbooks for students.
Want to learn more about the upcoming March 10th Maintenance & Operations levy? Additional facts and voter information may be found on the school district's website at www.cdaschools.org
