We believe building positive relationships and eliminating fears for every student are critical for maximum learning to take place. Contributing to our continued success are social development, strong balanced literacy and math programs, and an incredibly dedicated staff with high but realistic expectations. We provide support for our parents through Love and Logic parenting classes, at no charge and with child care provided. This school also offers free and tuition preschool classes that have a focus on both academic and developmental learning standards.<br><br>Emerald Elementary was built in 1958 as the first elementary school in Broomfield. Emerald has gone through many improvements including enlarging the school. The school has Preschool-5th grade students.  We are proud to be one of the first schools to offer a full day kindergarten.  Emerald Elementary is part of the Boulder Valley School District.  During the 2009-2010 school year a new gym was added to the school, and the cafeteria and the office area was remodeled.<br><br>Motto:  We're on FIRE!  <br>Our staff and students have Focus, Integrity, Respect, Empathy<br>​​​​​​​<br>School Colors: Green and White<br> <br>Mascot:  Snortner the DragonSamara Williams<p>Every teacher at Emerald is dedicated to designing thoughtful and intentional differentiated instruction to ensure that each child is held to the highest of expectations. Teachers here know that they need to plan varied instruction that challenges and engages all of our students. It is part of what attracted our staff to work in this school in the first place! In the differentiated classrooms you will find at Emerald, individual student needs are considered in the lesson planning process—there is not a one-size-fits-all or “aim for the middle” approach. Through careful design, almost all of the instruction that each child receives is provided in the classroom in an inclusive setting, with a lower teacher-to-student ratio than the majority of schools in the district.<br><br>Special Programs and Opportunities<br>Students at Emerald have all kinds of other opportunities, such as Talented and Gifted programming, Instrumental Music at 5th grade, full-day kindergarten, preschool, Reading Recovery, English Language Development, Special Education, Title I Reading and Math, Community Liaison support, full-time Literacy Teacher Interventionist, full-time Social Worker, Universal Breakfast, Family Literacy Program, 21st Century Learning Grant which we call “Dragon School”, and a host of other volunteer programs, such as the “Kids’ Hope” mentoring program.<br><br>Students can also participate in: “Dragon School”, Student Council, Spelling Bee, After-School Tutoring and Homework Support, At-Risk Girls Club, Boulder Valley Art Show, Friendship Groups, Health Fair, Summer School, Chess Club, Battle of the Books, and many other clubs that happen throughout the year.<br></p><div>In our Emerald community, children are equally supported to reach their greatest potential.  We are an innovative, progressive and high-achieving neighborhood school that equitably educates all students in a safe, supportive environment.  We foster successful, curious, lifelong learners who confidently embrace the challenges and opportunities of their time.<br></div><p><span><span><strong></strong>Believe - Achieve - Succeed<br></span></span></p>
