4th Grade spent the day in a "one-room school house" as they experienced the life and times of children in the 1860s. This eye-opening day was fun for everyone and kids begged for the day to not end!
Each class wore a different color of the rainbow to show school spirit!
Sheila, a 3rd grader at SES, had her bookmark selected as the winner in the 3rd & 4th grades category for the Tattered Cover's 27th Annual Children's Bookmark Contest. Her bookmark will be printed in full color and handed out at all four Tattered Cover locations this August. Congratulations Sheila!
This summer, the Board of Education approved the Educational Facilities Master Plan and a resolution placing a question on the November 2014 ballot asking voters to fund $576M in improvements for all schools.

Share-A-Gift will once again be collecting gently used bikes for their Toy Shop.
Superior Elementary has been a generous supporter of this program for years. It is a great way to recycle used bicycles and help make another child’s holiday special.
Share-A-Gift volunteers will be at SES early (before school drop off) to help unload your bikes.
Please visit our website www.shareagift.org for more information about our program.
Here’s an opportunity to clean out the closet! Donate your used shoes to those in need of proper footwear. Look for the specially marked collection boxes in the SES entryway.
You may be interested to know the journey taken by your used shoes: after being sorted and packaged by Eco-Cycle, they are shipped through a broker all over the world. Many shoes go to developing countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
The collection is courtesy of Eco-Cycle and its CHaRM operation that processes all kinds of hard-to-recycle items such as computers, junked bicycles, block styrofoam, even used cooking oil. To learn more about the Used Shoe Collection and hard-to-recycle items, please visit ecocycle.org or call Eco-Cycle at 303-444-6634.
The Common Sense Parenting class will once again be held at Superior Elementary! Weekly classes are offered on Tuesdays from October 13th - November 17th from 9:00-11:00 am at Superior Elementary.
Common Sense Parenting is a practical, skill-based parenting program that can be applied to every family. The program's logical strategies and easy-to-learn techniques address issues of communication, discipline, decision making, relationships, self-control and school success.
The program will combine components involving instruction, videotape modeling, role-playing, feedback and review. Professionally trained parent trainers teach the course and provide instruction, consultation and support.
Attending the course is free; there is a $25.00 charge for the book and materials.
Please contact Anna Stewart at 720-561-5918 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to register!
SES will participate in Walk to School Day on Wednesday, October 7th. Children will be encouraged to walk, bike, or “ride and stride” to school (buses will drop off kids at Purple Park at 7:45 am and adult volunteers will walk with the kids the rest of the way to school; if you do not want your child to walk, you must opt out of this activity). If you would like to volunteer to walk with kids from Purple Park, please email Susie at email@example.com - it will be a fun time to get involved and get some exercise!
Our school is participating in a grant project to bring cycling education to PE classes over the next two years. The hope is that by participating in BLAST (4-5th grades) and Bikeology (6-7th grades), as the courses are known, children will be prepared and inspired to bike to school. More cycling often means active children, fewer cars and safer streets around school.
The grant project through the Colorado Safe Routes to School Program requires that we conduct a Parent Survey at the beginning and end of the activities to show changes in the transportation chosen by students to get to and from school. By completing the survey, which takes about five to ten minutes, you’re showing your support of cycling education. Many thanks in advance for making time for this!
To complete the Parent Survey, please visit http://www.saferoutesdata.org/surveyformparent.cfm?key=669557
If you have a new student to enroll, the first step in the enrollment process is to complete the Student Enrollment Online application form. You may complete the Student Enrollment Online form at https://enroll.bvsd.org/ once you know your address in the Boulder Valley School District.
Please contact us with any general comments or questions. We will reply as soon as possible.
The Trip Tracker program encourages and rewards students who walk, bike, carpool or ride the RTD or school bus to school.
Superior Elementary believes children should be educated in a healthy, nurturing, and supportive environment where lifetime habits are encouraged and reinforced. To support these beliefs, we are implementing the Boys Town Well-Managed Schools explicit social skills instruction to complement our PBiS (Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports).
