Peak to Peak Elementary School

  • Peak to Peak Elementary School’s rigorous curriculum focuses on standards-based learning and uses the nationally recognized Core Knowledge Sequence as the basis for its content in Social Studies and Science. Our literature-based reading program emphasizes phonics, phonemic awareness and extensive practice which builds fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary. Our math program emphasizes computation and problem-solving. Peak to Peak believes that students should be placed according to their abilities rather than by strict age levels, so students are ability-grouped in math and reading classes. Teachers also use clustering and differentiation to meet all students’ needs.

Elementary School News & Announcements

  • Winter Weather

    If you haven’t noticed...it can be COLD outside, but school continues on! We stay inside when the temperature or windchill is below 20 degrees, or if there is too much ice to safely be outside. More often, we go outside in very cold or snowy conditions (as soon as it hits 20 degrees). Students usually spend between 30-60 minutes outside over the course of a day at school. Please help your student be warm at school by reminding them to bring coats/ hats/ gloves/ snow boots to school whenever appropriate. Lunch recess often consists of sledding or playing on the field in the snow...for those students wearing boots. Thanks for being the extra reminder each morning that students need warm clothes for school during these winter temperatures!

  • Additional Staff Introductions

    Recently we introduced you to our elementary teaching staff. Beyond teachers, many other staff members work with our elementary students each day, including our Teaching Assistants and Paraprofessionals. Your students might be coming home talking about these other adults who help in LA, Math, and other areas. These amazing staff members support students in many ways, both inside the classroom and out at recess or lunch. They work so hard, often with very little recognition or acknowledgement. We truly couldn’t make it any day without their care and concern for our students. We'd like you to also meet our elementary teaching assistants & paraprofessionals and learn about some of the ‘other people’ at our school! Please click for links to see the ES teaching staff and support staff videos.
