Dear Parents/Guardians and Students of PPE,
Welcome back to Pikes Peak! Wow, what a strange year 2020 has become! We are so happy to be back because we missed you all so much! We cannot tell you how excited we are to start another school year with you and your student(s), no matter what this year brings and no matter where your student does her or his learning. As always please contact us if you have any questions!
A little bit about myself, I could not be more exited for the 2020-2021 school year! My name is Jennifer Locke and this will be my third year as the principal at Pikes Peak Elementary twenty-fifth year as an educator. I am originally from Los Angeles but was lucky enough to move to the Pikes Peak Region with my husband, a Colorado Springs native, in 1998. From a very young age, I knew that I would be working with kids and it is such a pleasure to be continuing that dream here. I received my B.A. from the University of California, San Diego and then my M.A. from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. In education, I have been an elementary and middle school teacher. I was also a literacy coach and assistant principal for 11 years. I have spent twenty years in Harrison and I think it is the best school district in the state! Thank you for entrusting your precious children with us this year!
At PPE, we recognize that educating children requires a team effort. We want you to be a part of our team to ensure the success of your student. Regardless of how school will look throughout this year, here at Pikes Peak we will continue to work hard at providing your student with appropriate small group learning time with instruction tailored to meet your students’ unique needs. Thank you for the honor of being an integral partner in the education of your student(s)! This year we at Pikes Peak we will continue to “Believe, Achieve & Succeed”!
