Soar With the Eagles

Welcome to Skyway Elementary School

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.

Help Keep Learning With Lucky Reading Pups Available For First Graders

Learning with Lucky® was designed to help teachers overcome the challenges of increased class sizes and the varied learning levels of the many students. Learning with Lucky® is an incentive based system that motivates students to earn privileges/incentives associated with their "reading buddies."

 

Our 1st graders next year will receive a black or yellow stuffed Labrador reading buddy. Students spend time with their reading buddy each day in the classroom and work together as a "team" on a variety of projects designed to encourage reading. The Learning with Lucky® program begins just after the start of the school year and ends with the termination of the school year. Graduates of the Learning with Lucky® program take their reading buddy home to continue to assist them.

Would you consider donating to the Learning with Lucky program?  Each puppy cost approximately $10.00, and we have a long way to go to reach our goal of a puppy for every first grader. Donations can be made at:

For the second year in a row, Skyway's 4th graders have brought home a 5th place trophy from the Math is Cool contest in Washington! Last month, our 5th graders missed a trophy by only one point! Not only does this put Skyway the highest placing Idaho school for the last three events, it is in the top of approximately thirty-five public, private, and charter schools in the Inland Empire in this high caliber competition. Not only did our students in both grades compete at a high academic level, their sportsmanship and attitude were stellar as well. Great job, Skyway Eagles!
