The Steamboat Springs School District and several of the district schools received awards from the Colorado Department of Education on December 2nd for excellence in education. I would like to share the recognition Strawberry Park Elementary was honored with.
For the second consecutive year, SPE was awarded the John Irwin Schools of Excellence. The John Irwin awards are given to schools that demonstrate excellent academic achievement over time. On the school performance framework that is used by the state to evaluate schools, these schools “exceed” expectations on the academic achievement indicator when looking at the past three years of data. Achievement results include reading, math, writing and science content areas as measured by the annual state TCAP assessment.
I am so proud of our staff, parents, and community who all work together as an amazing team to help offer the highest quality education possible for our children. Please join me in celebrating these accomplishments of Strawberry Park Elementary.
