Dear parents! 

We know you've been getting bombarded by surveys this year, but these surveys help fund all of the incredible improvements to our school that we're all looking forward to so much! Here's yet another one to help us get flashing lights for the crosswalk that'll connect our pedestrian path that we're planning as part of our playground project so that your children can safely ride and walk to school. This is a great opportunity to improve the local community, increase the fitness of students, reduce local traffic, and increase the safe routes to Sopris Elementary. 

Please take a few moments and complete the survey linked here:

This is the first step in this grant application process, so the sooner you complete it the sooner we can start the working on this project.  

Thank you!

We are a Capturing Kids' Hearts School!

Our vision and mission is centered around making strong connections with students, families and colleagues to create a safe, warm learning environment. One of our areas of focus is service to our classrooms, families, school and community.  For ongoing information, sign up for the principal's blog (News tab, above):

What is Crew?

Time of Day:

  • 8:15-8:40
  • 3:20-3:30


Crew provides each student a one-to-one relationship with an adult at SES, as well as a consistent and ongoing small-scale peer community. Crew leaders (teachers) monitor and support student progress, serve as the student’s advocate in difficult academic and social situations, and act as the primary contact point between parents and the school. Crew meetings are frequently used for teambuilding exercises and for group discussions on topical issues. These exercises and discussions help establish crew identity and a positive school culture.


Within their crews and with the guidance of their crew leaders, students identify needs in the school and in outside communities, and propose and develop projects to address those needs. Students document their involvement in service throughout their school experience, selecting examples of service for inclusion in passage portfolios and presentations
