    Welcome to Mancos Elementary School-Home of the Little Jays, where we are committed to excellence, and passionate about providing the best education and support to students, families, and the community.  The staff creates a positive, collaborative atmosphere which has our building buzzing with delighted students eager to learn.  When you walk our colorful hallways, you will hear laughter and encouraging words, see smiles, and displays of student work showcasing the quality learning taking place. Students are continually recognized by all staff members for demonstrating their 3R’s of “Being Respectful, Being Responsible, and Being Ready!”  We have an extremely dedicated staff which regularly collaborates to share best instructional practices and determine interventions for students’ growth at all levels of need. We are committed to providing ALL students a solid academic foundation affording children the skills to be successful as critical thinkers and collaborative partners.  Mancos Elementary Staff values developing positive relationships with students, families, and the community.  We are proud to work together in our dedication to Mancos Kindergarten –Fifth Graders. The staff looks forward to welcoming familiar faces of families that have walked through our doors for generations, as well as those that have recently become Little Jays. Our doors are always open; so please stop by to say hello, discuss your kudos and concerns, or share a smile. Have a fantastic Little Jay Day!
