About Superior Elementary School (8418)


Superior Elementary School


Superior Elementary School (SES) opened as the first neighborhood school in Rock Creek in 1996. From day one, families and students embraced their neighborhood school and supported SES in numerous ways from volunteering in classrooms to creating outdoor spaces and gardens to collaborating on multi-disciplinary projects. Partnering together to support student success is a valued practice, and for many years we have had 100% conference turnout as parents, teachers, and students come together to ce lebrate successes and set new learning and behavior goals. During the pandemic, SES continued to be the heart of the neighborhood, and quickly pivoted to supporting students with at-home learning. Within days of shutting down in March 2020, hundreds of chromebooks and learning materials were distributed to families. On March 30th, successful virtual learning began with both teacher-created asynchronous video instruction and synchronous class meetings to support student's social emotional needs. During the 2020-21 year, SES maintained enrollment, and staff continued to provide instruction in a variety of ways to meet the needs of our families, with in-person learning for 27 weeks, hy-flex instruction for students that wanted to be part of the classroom while learning from home and fully online instruction. This year, 448 students have returned to in-person learning. Staff and families have supported students by bringing back many long-held traditions such as Songbirds (after school choir), a fifth grade musical, ultimate games, the spelling bee, adventure course, Battle of the Books, Destination Imagination, Math Olympiads, Fun Run, variety shows, and service projects. The December 30th Marshall Fire became another reminder of our strong school community. When sixteen families lost their homes and dozens of families were displaced, we came together to support them. The day after, SES staff called all the families who lost their homes, created a database of needs, and immediately began to provide temporary housing, transportation, food, snow gear, clothing, books, etc. so that students could return to school as soon as possible. At this time, our school has raised thousands of dollars to support our Marshall Fire families and all students have been able to stay at SES even though they live throughout the metro area. SES teachers are high achieving, lifelong learners, who are actively engaged in improving their practice and committed to educating all students. Staff Professional Development (PD) is highly valued and teachers thoughtfully participate in Professional Learning Communities (PLC). Fifteen teachers have become Nationally Board Certified while teaching at SES. Grade level teams utilize weekly PLC time to participate in the Teaching and Learning Cycle. Staff participate in a variety of book studies, including The Well-Managed Classroom and Launch: Using Design Thinking to Boost Creativity and Bring out the Maker in Every Student. Teachers embrace and implement new programs with fidelity that are adopted by BVSD including: Fountas and Pinnell Literacy, Math Expressions, Fundations, etc.
