It has been our intention to return to some form of in-person learning as soon as it was determined by our health departments that it is both safer and feasible to do so. On September 21, during our virtual town hall with county health department officials, we reviewed the current coronavirus data for our community. To this end, our county health agency partners have made the recommendation that it is now appropriate for us to return to a hybrid learning model. Click here to watch the virtual town hall discussion about the data guiding our decisions and current levels in our community. Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. LaunchED student’s schedules will not be impacted by this change.
Cómo usted sabe, nuestra intención ha sido volver a alguna forma de aprendizaje en persona tan pronto cómo nuestros departamentos de salud determinen que es más seguro y factible hacerlo. Anoche, durante nuestra junta virtual con los funcionarios del departamento de salud del condado, revisamos los datos actuales del coronavirus para nuestra comunidad. Con esto, nuestros asociados de las agencias de salud pública del condado han recomendado que ahora es apropiado que regresemos a un modelo de aprendizaje híbrido. Haga clic aquí para ver la discusión de la junta virtual sobre los datos que guían nuestras decisiones y los niveles actuales en nuestra comunidad. Comenzando el lunes 5 de octubre, estaremos implementando un programa de aprendizaje híbrido en persona para todos los estudiantes que no estén inscritos actualmente en el programa LaunchED. Los horarios de estudiantes LaunchED no serán impactados por este cambio.
Niwot Elementary is located in the quaint town of Niwot, Colorado. We are part of the St. Vrain Valley School District and we are located off of Highway 119 between Boulder and Longmont, Colorado. Our school offers Preschool through Fifth Grade.
The mission of the Niwot Elementary School Community is to provide each student with a well balanced and successful learning experience that promotes a lifelong enjoyment of learning, positive self esteem, and an appreciation of respect and acceptance for all individuals.
We are a loving family, existing as an integral part of a generous community. We share an ethic of academic excellence which fosters a safe, respectful, collaborative, and fun environment!
Our school is a place where everyone is valued and respected. We communicate and collaborate to provide an academically-solid foundation that nurtures the whole child. We build character and embrace diversity while respecting every individual. We work to create an environment that positively impacts every child's future.
Our school fosters high standards and supports a lifelong love of learning for all students as they strive to meet their full potential.
We are a "School for Differentiated Instruction" which means we work to create multiple pathways so that students of different abilities, interest or learning needs experience equally appropriate ways to absorb, use, develop and present concepts as part of the daily learning process. This approach allows students to take greater responsibility and ownership for their own learning, and provides opportunities for peer teaching and cooperative learning.
PBS determines how we address behavior on a school wide basis:
P - positive attitude
A - always safe
W - we are respectful and responsible
S - striving for excellence
Students can earn PAWS for demonstrating positive behaviors in these areas. We also have a character trait of the month where students can earn monthly Brag Tags and positive phone calls home.
