Penrose Elementary School

  • Distance Learning begins April 7th 

    While this has been a hectic time across the country, and around the world, Colorado Springs School District 11 and Penrose Elementary continues to work hard to create an effective online learning platform that will continue to challenge students over the upcoming weeks.  While the district is working hard to get technology in the hands of students, we are going to offer both online and offline learning.  If you indicated to your classroom teacher that you need technology, we will begin by sending you offline materials, so that your children can continue their educational journey.  If you do have access to a device and internet, we welcome you to join the Penrose teachers on Schoology for some great distance learning opportunities! Below is a tutorial on how to login to Schoology, and some great features you can expect to see, from our staff as we continue to do what we do best...educating children!  Stay healthy and safe, Penrose families and students!


  • Why Project Based Learning?

    Project Based Learning (PBL) is an  instructional approach that  focuses on inquiry. Given an essential question, students work collaboratively on projects to address issues specific to our community.  



    A Message from District 11 Superintendent Dr. Michael Thomas
    School Closures Extended Until April 30th, 2020

    Dear D11 Families,

    Earlier today, during a press conference, Colorado Governor Jared Polis announced the suspension of in-person learning across our state through April 30, 2020. This order aligns with the President’s guidelines announced earlier this week.

    Our district will continue our current path of conducting distance learning. At this time, we do not know if we will return after April 30, 2020, or if the suspension of in-person learning will continue.  Please know, we continue to work closely
    with the Governor and are following the recommendations of state and regional health professionals. As we learn more, we will share updates.

    Yours in Partnership,

    Dr. Michael J. Thomas, Superintendent
    Colorado Springs School District 11
