    PLEASE REGISTER TODAY!


    We look forward to seeing you in the 2019-20 school year!

  • Families, please be aware that if you need to check out your student or change pickup or after school plans, you must contact the front office. Our teachers do not have the opportunity to check email during the workday. If your child regularly attends the Youth Center after school, please plan on checking your child out of the Youth Center (even if it is right after school); this avoids confusion between SSES, the Youth Center, and you!
  • CSF Summer Enrichment Camp is back! Registration is now open for Coronado Schools Foundation's 2019 Summer Enrichment Program featuring hands-on STEAM-inspired classes for students, grades TK-12. This educationally focused program offers two, one-week sessions with some classes offered over both weeks. Classes are held from 8:30 to 11:30 am and 12:00 to 3:00 pm with most classes at Village Elementary School. There will be a supervised lunch period from 11:30-12:00 for students taking both morning and afternoon classes. Most classes are taught by credentialed Coronado Unified teachers with Steve Reiss, a local expert, teaching SAT/ACT and Excelsior Chess offering Chess Camp. Class sizes are small with experienced teachers at the helm, planning and executing the curriculum. Registration is now open! Register by May 15th to save $20 off each class!
