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.

School Pyschology Awareness Week

November 10–14, 2014, is National School Psychology Awareness Week. School psychologists around the country engage students at all levels of development to meet challenges, build new skills, and become thriving members of our school community. The ten school psychologists in our district provide a range of services related to students’ academic achievement and well-being. These include learning and teaching support, consultation and collaboration, student safety, and serving as compliance experts. We are committed to working with families, district staff and outside agencies to help all of our students strive, grow and thrive.

Autumn Activities at Skyway

This is a very busy time at Skyway Elementary School! We have just finished up a very successful Cross-Country Track season, thanks to Mrs. Giles, our school garden is harvested and starting to get ready for the winter's nap, Career Awareness Week activities are sparking student interest throughout the week, the PTA fundraiser is raising money for so many school needs, and of course the students are thinking about Halloween! Be sure to carefully read any communication from your child's teacher so you can keep up with all the activities happening.
 
Skyway will be having its annual Halloween Parade at 9:15 on Friday, October 31. Parents are welcome to attend, and their will be a viewing area in the gym for parents to sit and watch the parade. Students are not allowed to have any costume that has any blood, toy weapons, or are inappropriate for school. Be sure your child has school clothes to change into right after their classroom festivities, too. Your child's teacher will let you know what their class is doing for their Halloween party. Thank you for helping to keep this a fun filled, upbeat childhood activity for your child.
 
 

Chromebooks and iPads Update Learning at Skyway

The Coeur d'Alene School District strives to provide all students with a range of experiences to meet local and state technology standards. These standards include electronic communication, virtual collaboration, and using digital tools to complete projects, so it is important for students to become responsible and proficient online.  Grants and our technology replacement system have provided Skyway with Chromebooks for use by our third-fifth grade students and iPads for our Kindergarten- second grade students.  Not all devices have arrived, but our inventory is growing.  We encourage our students to recognize that “technology is integral to teaching, learning, and ensuring student success in the 21st century," as our district technology vision states.
 
Attached is a letter explaining the use of  Google apps by our staff and students in grades 3-5  Google Apps is free, is not supported by advertising.  It allows our staff and students to communicate and collaborate in a supervised environment.   Please read the letter and call me if you have any questions.

Your Principal, Jan Beauchamp
