Principal’s Message

Welcome to Zephyr Cove Elementary School! Our motto “Expecting the Best” is evident in our teachers, staff, and most importantly, our students.  We strive to deliver the Nevada Academic Content Standards (NACS) also known as Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in a dynamic and individual way. Because our school is small, we are a close community of learners.  We learn, play, grow, and work together each and every day.

Our teachers are life-long learners who are creative thinkers and problem solvers. They teach their students to do the same. We focus on English-Language Arts and Mathematics through differentiated instruction and flexible grouping.  Our teachers use hands-on manipulatives and inquiry based lessons to enhance learning and solidify understanding of the content they teach.Each of our classrooms is equipped with interactive technology Promethean Boards so that students have a greater understanding of the power of information and research as it relates to the world workplace. Students are able to interact with high-tech equipment, teachers can collect data from their students in seconds, and everyone benefits from accessing school related academic websites that brings global information into our learning communities.

Our ZCES Parent Club encourages each and every parent to participate in some activity or volunteer in their child’s classroom sometime throughout the school year. They have provided thousands of dollars in equipment and resources for our classrooms and teachers, which supports student achievement and success.  You may wish to go to their link on the home page and contact one of the Board Members to find out how you can help support and participate in our school’s success.

Please look at our school calendar link to find out specific days and times of upcoming events and feel free to check with any of our teachers or school staff for more information.

Thank you for visiting our website. I hope that you will find the various links and information useful. Please feel free to contact me or our secretaries if you have any questions. We look forward to another year of learning and growing…Come join us!
