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.

District Cross Country Meet

 The district cross country race is this Thursday, September 25th. Students should arrive at the fairgrounds no later than 4:15.  If they did not receive a bright pink paper from school with their name sticker, please contact the office to get another one. Go Skyway Runners!!

"Caught Being Good"

Our Caught Being Good program is in full swing! This program encourages students to make good choices throughout the school day and throughout the school environment.

The Skyway staff will informally distribute tickets when observing kids being good. Specifically, please observe and verbally acknowledge when students are being:


When a student is given a coupon, he/she takes the coupon to the office, exchanges the coupon for a small reward and their ticket will be placed into a weekly drawing. At the end of the week one ticket will be drawn, selected names will be recognized during the Friday morning announcements, and those students will be invited to have lunch with the Principal, Vice Principal, teacher or Behavior Specialist.

Healthy Ideas From Food Service

Join our team!
Now that school is back in session, are you missing the pitter-patter of children's feet during the day?  We've got a great opportunity for you to come and work with our 10,000 students in the nutrition services department.  Working in Nutrition Services is a great fit for parents with children in the district as you only work when school is in session and can be home with them on holidays and weekends!  If you are interested in applying, click here to connect to the application and for details as to where to drop it off.

 Get in the Game with School Lunch

To recognize the National School Lunch Program and the 30 million children it serves every day, Coeur d'Alene schools will recognize National School Lunch Week from October 13-17, 2014. The theme, “Get in the Game with School Lunch” will feature events and activities that promote the importance of balancing healthy eating with physical activity and exercise. National School Lunch Week will emphasize the healthy foods that are offered daily. School lunches are healthier than ever, with more fruits and vegetables, more whole grains, and less fat and sodium.  National School Lunch Week is the perfect time to celebrate all of the healthy options we’re serving every day in our schools!
