Welcome to Mancos Elementary!
The teachers and staff of Mancos Elementary School love their jobs, love school, and LOVE your kiddos. That is why they are so good at achieving academic excellence while having fun every single day. Mancos Elementary is a magical place to go to school because so many talented people have dedicated their lives to making this community a better place. It is an honor and a privilege to work with the incredible teachers and staff here, and we promise to dedicate ourselves each day to being the kinds of adults that the kids in our community truly deserve. Little Jays learn to be respectful, responsible, and ready. To this end, we will relentlessly seek to increase student academic achievement, partner with our community to provide students with individualized opportunities for success, and embed social-emotional learning in our classroom activities to support the wellness of our students. The kids at Mancos Elementary are the leaders in their own academic journey through a project-based learning framework that celebrates diverse talents and engages all learners in a richly contextualized education that is applicable and relevant. The school leadership helps the teachers and staff by valuing every single person’s unique contributions, and constantly monitoring and scaffolding all of the education systems to implement data-informed strategies. Furthermore, Mancos Elementary will be an open book to our wonderful community as we welcome the accountability and assistance which naturally results from transparency and parent participation at all levels. Little Jays have a lot of fun at school and grow to be dynamic problem solvers and helpful team players who demonstrate grit and resilience in the face of challenges. We believe that happy teachers and happy kids are the key ingredients to high performance and a rich education. Above all, Mancos Elementary is an incredible school because of all the exceptional students and families that make this little valley the most wonderful place in the whole world.
Thank you all so very much for sending your precious children to this incredible school!
