Peakview Elementary SOAR Snapshots

June 2019


Dear Peakview Families,

It is hard to believe summer is upon us. I hope you have enjoyed the first few weeks of summer finding time to enjoy the nice weather and quality time with family and friends. Thank you to our students, staff, and parents who have worked together to make this a successful school year.

Before we get too far into summer mode, I wanted to communicate some important dates and information to guide your summer and next school year planning.

Our summer office hours are Monday - Friday from 8:00 am - 3:00 pm. Our office will be closed on June 25, 2019 - July 26, 2019.

We are very excited about our summer innovation renovation this summer. I have included details about this below.

Summer online registration opens on July 1, 2019. Families who are registered will receive classroom assignments by the end of the day on Tuesday, August 6. This was a successful shift that we made at the beginning of this past school year and improved our efficiency at Peak-a-boo. Families unable to register prior to Peak-a-Boo on Thursday, August 8, will have the opportunity to register at school. Classroom assignments will be shared after registration is completed.

Again, thank you for your continued partnership this year. Here's to a summer filled with play and time with family and friends.

Summer Innovation Renovation

Cherry Creek School District voters approved funding in 2016 to design spaces that will promote collaboration, problem-solving, curiosity, inquiry, empathy, passion, and innovative thinking. These skills are integral in preparing students for a professional and academic existence in the 21st-century, and we are very excited our school is scheduled for this renovation this summer!

Updates so far:

Demo of our space is completed. Framing of our new space will begin on Monday!

Use the links below to check out the phase 1 renovations completed last summer and our new Cherry Creek Innovation Campus available to all Cherry Creek juniors and seniors.
