If you are considering purchasing a new home in Daybreak and intend to enroll your children in public school, it’s very likely based on current school boundaries that your child would attend Eastlake Elementary. Located in Eastlake Village, Eastlake Elementary has a unique two-story design with large windows in every classroom, collaboration kivas, a beautiful media center, a spacious gym with stage area, and computer lab with the latest technology. The school is situated adjacent to a large park with vast play areas and facilities for soccer, tennis, basketball and swimming. When designing the Eastlake neighborhood, the school was centrally located so that as many children as possible could walk to school eliminating the need for parents to drive their children to school, and reducing strain on the district’s bus program.
Led by Principal Kyle Hansen, Eastlake Elementary has three areas of focus of Literacy, Numeracy and Arts Integration with opportunities in Choir, Orchestra and Meet the Masters, an Art Education Program which is put on largely with the help of parent volunteers. Meet the Masters is taught through school multi-media assemblies where students are introduced to master artists through interesting stories, facts and virtual museums. Back in the classrooms, students learn and practice the techniques through self-guided pencil-on paper worksheets and a final art project reflecting the same medium, style or subject matter as the master artist.
The elementary school supports Leader in Me, a character education program that creates a common language within the school-wide community based upon Dr. Stephen R. Covey’s best-selling book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Through Leader in Me, students develop life skills and self-confidence to succeed in school, at home and in their chosen careers in the future. The program is gaining recognition in schools across the United States and in countries around the world.
Through radKIDS® Personal Empowerment Safety Education Program, students and their parents acquire knowledge, skills and power to protect themselves from violence and harm. The program covers topics such as home, school and vehicle safety, realistic defense against abduction, appropriate touch and the self-realization of personal power.
