SRES Updates

  • December 19, 2018
    Dear Springs Ranch Elementary School Families,
    This morning at approximately 10:40 a.m. our law enforcement partners at the Colorado Springs Police Department told D49 safety and security, as well as SRES administrators, about an active investigation in a nearby neighborhood. 
    Out of an abundance of caution and at the recommendation of CSPD, administrators immediately initiated a lockout status at SRES. 
    CSPD concluded their initial investigation and determined there was no threat to the safety of the SRES campus. After getting the all-clear, SRES administrators lifted the lockout, which lasted approximately 25 minutes. 
    Please Click here for more information.
    David Nancarrow
    Director of Communications

  • Principal's Post: 

    We hope you had a restful fall break. It did not take long for our staff and students to get back in the routine of teaching and learning. As we begin our second quarter, we wanted to share some questions you can ask your child about their day (without saying, “How was your day?).

    • What feedback did you get today? Who gave it to you and what did you do with the feedback?
    • Tell me about the best part of your day.
    • What was the hardest thing you had to do today?
    • Tell me about what you read in class?
    • Who did you play with today? What did you play?
    • Can you show me something you learned or did today?
    • Who did you help today?
    • Who made you smile today?
    • What is one new fact that you learned today?
    • What questions did you ask today?

    As we engage our students in conversation about their day it lets them know that their education and experiences are valuable. It will also give you insights to where they are having success or struggling. As always, please reach out to the school if you ever have any questions.
