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.
Erie Elementary is a community that nurtures academic excellence and promotes lifelong learning through engaging STEM- focused instruction.
The town of Erie was founded, settled, and incorporated several years before Colorado became a state and was once home to coal mines, railroads, and agriculture. Situated near the center of town is Erie Elementary School, home of the “Tigers.”
At Erie Elementary, a strong sense of commitment and enthusiasm prevails among the staff as they strive to work together with parents, the community, and each other to help each child be successful both academically and socially. Specifically, the school’s goals are centered around reading, writing and mathematics.
To meet these goals, instructional decisions are based on the continual gathering of data throughout the year. A professional learning community exists within the building that allows staff members to meet weekly to examine lessons and resulting student work and assessment data. The result is classroom instruction that is engaging, thoughtful, and changes to meet the varying needs of the children.
Achieving academic success for all students involves a wide variety of instructional tools, strategies, and programs that include:
Small town community feeling. The school is the center of the community.
A Parent Teacher Community Organization (PTCO) that seeks and implements resources in order to assist and improve the areas of communication, academic excellence, and school unity for the benefit of every child at Erie Elementary.
A preschool and full day kindergarten programs.
Outside the school day the school is bustling with activity. Enrichment programs are offered throughout the year.
Tigger Time: a before (7:00-9:00 a.m.) and after (3:30-6:00 p.m.) school day care program is in place and provides a variety of creative activities and social interactions for students. Tigger Time also provides “no school” day care (other than holidays).
