Peyton Elementary School’s Kindergarten has low class sizes, averaging 14 students in a class. It is a full day, family oriented program. Students receive individualized instruction in a “hands on” interactive learning environment. Kindergarten students will learn the foundations of reading by understanding spoken words, syllables, and sounds. They will demonstrate knowledge of upper and lowercase letters of the alphabet and their sounds. They will blend sounds into words, and recognize rhyming words. They will use a combination of drawing, dictation, and writing to express ideas. Students will understand that whole numbers can be used to name, count, represent, and order quantity. Students will learn the social skills necessary to develop peer relationships, problem solve, and work cooperatively as well as independently.
Hello! I’m Mrs. Green. I have been employed at Peyton Elementary School since 2010. I have had the opportunity to work with Special Education and Title I Reading. This allowed me to work with grades Kindergarten through 6th providing support with reading, writing, and math. Currently I teach 2nd grade. I am a proud Panther graduate, having attended grades K through twelfth here. I have been married since 1999. We have one daughter, Ryleigh, who attends Peyton High School.
Hello! My name is Megan Blanas. I am originally from northern Illinois and grew up on a farm near Chicago. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and taught in Illinois from 2008-2012. My husband and I moved to Colorado in 2013. I stayed at home with our two children until my youngest went to Kindergarten in 2018. I previously taught in District 49 and moved to Peyton Elementary in 2021. In my free time I enjoy hiking, camping, reading, and crafts. I love the Peyton community and look forward to teaching your child this year!
