Skyway Elementary is located in the shadows of Cheyenne Mountain, in the southwest part of Colorado Springs, Colorado. Cheyenne Mountain is home to NORAD and the world-famous Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. The historic Broadmoor Hotel is also nearby.
The Skyway staff believes that CHARACTER is the foundation that everything else is built upon. We emphasize character trait words every month. September is "Respect," October is "Responsibility," November is "Caring/Kindness," December is "Teamwork," January is "Manners," February is "Fairness," March is "Helpful," April is "Trustworthiness" and May is "Citizenship." We recognize students for their efforts in practicing these character traits by catching them being good. Students who are caught practicing these traits receive "Comet Blue Slips" for positive behaviors. We also recognize students through our Shining Star Program. Each month, two students from each class are recognized for their citizenship behaviors and attitudes.
