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 600 and 750 students. Our mascot is the eagle, and we encourage our students to soar with success, just as the eagle does.

Climbing Wall Installed

climbing wall

The Skyway Rock Climbing Wall has been installed in our gym!  We are very excited about this new addition to our physical education program.  Mrs. Giles began this effort last year, generating enthusiasm and raising funds for the climbing wall.  Mrs. Behrens continued the effort this year and with the generous support of our patrons and PTA, we were able to purchase the wall.  The climbing wall is designed and constructed for safety in the school setting.  The height is limited so climbing harnesses are not required.  Your students will soon be learning how to use the wall safely and will be sharing their experiences with you.  THANK YOU to all of our donors and PTA!  You rock!!


Thank You Idaho Fence!

Idaho Fence

We are so thankful for Idaho Fence, who donated their time and materials to build a fence around our school garden and install a gate leading to the parking lot. Now we can have Skyway families sign up to tend to our school garden during the summer and access the garden through the new gate! This will allow families to share in the gardening experience and enjoy the healthy, fresh veggies our students plant. We will have information on signing up for summer gardening this spring. Thank you, Idaho Fence, for making this a possibility! 

Residency Change?

In order to make certain all our students receive appropriate educational supports, Coeur d’Alene School District 271 conducts a mid-year residency verification. Residency is defined as where your family sleeps at night. Has your residency changed since September 8, 2015? If yes AND if any of the following statements are true for your family, please contact your school counselor or the Coeur d’Alene School District Homeless Liaison, James Curb at 208-664-8241 ext. 1061 or for more information about educational services that may be available to your student(s) and family.
