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.

Healthy Ideas From Food Service

"Catch up with Tomatoes"
With only eight calories in a quarter cup and a great source of antioxidants Vitamin A and C, tomatoes have proven to be a nutritional powerhouse.  This light and refreshing item may be paired with hummus for a snack, added to salads and sandwiches, used as a sauce, or as a base for soups.  Research has also linked tomatoes to cancer prevention.  Fortunately, tomatoes are one of the simplest vegetables to grow.  Every elementary student will be sent home with a package of tomato seeds equipped with instructions on April 24th.  A wonderful idea is to plant the seeds in an old milk carton.  Also on April 24th, we will be holding our 4th Annual Gardening Theme Meal where elementary school students who participate in school lunch will be able to enjoy various dishes with fresh tomatoes.  For more information on gardening and nutrition, please visit the Nutrition Services homepage at
