The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To that end, our comprehensive task force has outlined a school reopening plan that includes a return to full-time in-person instruction for students in grades PK-5, 6, and 9, and an alternating schedule with a combination of in-person and synchronous real-time online learning for students in grades 7-8 and 10-12.
La seguridad continúa, el bienestar, y el éxito de nuestros estudiantes, maestros, empleados, y la comunidad siempre ha sido nuestra prioridad más importante a manera que enfrentamos la compleja y evolucionante crisis del coronavirus. Con eso en mente, nuestro integro y dedicado grupo de trabajo ha preparado un plan de reapertura de las escuelas que incluye un regreso a la enseñanza en persona de tiempo completo para los estudiantes que están en los grados del PK al 5, en el 6, y en el 9, y un horario alternativo con una combinación de aprendizaje en persona y un aprendizaje sincronizado en vivo en tiempo real en línea a través del Internet para estudiantes en los grados 7 al 8 y del 10 al 12.

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.
