Science Olympiad

Skyway Elementary is located in the shadows of Cheyenne Mountain, in the southwest part of Colorado Springs, Colorado.  Cheyenne Mountain is home to NORAD and the world-famous Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. The historic Broadmoor Hotel is also nearby.

The Skyway staff believes that CHARACTER is the foundation upon which everything else is built. We emphasize character trait words every month.  August is "caring," September is "respect," October is "responsibility," November is "kindness," December is "teamwork," January is "manners," February is "fairness," March is "helpful," April is "trustworthy," and May is "citizenship."  We recognize students for their efforts in practicing these character traits by catching them being good. Students who are caught practicing these desired traits may receive "Comet Blue Slips" for positive behaviors. We also recognize students through our Shining Star Program. Each month, two students from each class are recognized for their citizenship behaviors and attitudes.

Skyway Mission: 
To provide a school community, and foster an environment, in which everyone is safe, happy, and challenged to learn and grow to the best of their potential; where foundations of academic, emotional, social, and physical preparation are laid to face tomorrow's challenges; where respect and integrity are fundamental.  Above all, Skyway embraces a leading educational experience where learning is a shared passion.



The last PTO meeting for this school year will be Tuesday, May 2nd from 6:00-7:00 PM in Skyway's Library.  All are invited to attend and celebrate our work this year!


GR6 students will be walking to CMJH for their tour and informational session on Wednesday afternoon from 12:15-2:15 PM.  Classroom teachers can answer questions at 475-6150.  Enjoy your taste of the Jr. High 6th grade!


GR4 students will be traveling to Cripple Creek on Monday, May 1st from 8:45-3:00 PM.  Classroom teachers can answer questions at 475-6150.  


Welcome new kindergarteners!  Every year we host an orientation for our incoming kindergarteners and their families, which helps parents acclimate to life in kindergarten.  Current kindergarten students will be dismissed at 11:15 AM so teachers can prepare for their time with new families beginning at 1:00 PM.  Our activities will conclude at 2:30 PM and incoming kindergarteners are welcome to attend.  


Join us this Thursday, February 16th for the kick-off to our annual marathon, beginning at 7:15 AM on the west playground.  Every year students, families, friends, stakeholders and alumni run or walk our campus accumulating miles for the grand finale and final mile Tuesday, May 23rd.  Every Tuesday and Thursday morning from 7:15 to 7:50 you are welcome to engage in some really healthy community building to jump start your day.  This year, each mile will be "sponsored" by a book and literacy will abound every week.  We hope to see you all there!


Skyway is looking for reliable volunteers to support our library.  If you have an hour or two to give each week, we could use your support to maintain book check-in, inventory and provide a little TLC to our most sacred space...our library.  Training takes approximately one hour and you can set your volunteer times!  Contact Pam Herr (475-6150) to schedule training and volunteer hours.  Thank you Skyway stakeholders!


Before and after school care has returned to Skyway!  If you are interested or need support with before and after school care, it is offered through YMCA from 6:30-8:00 AM and 3:00-6:00 PM every day that Skyway is in session.  Visit ppymca.org/before-after-school  for details or visit any YMCA location to register.  Shot records are required to enroll and financial aid is available.
