Welcome from Principal Mullner
Derek mullner


     Welcome to your neighborhood school! Here at High Plains Elementary we are committed to the academic, social, and emotional growth of all students. We demonstrate this commitment through our relationships with students and families, and instructional programming.

     The culture at High Plains is positive as evidenced by the smiles on the faces of our students and staff. We value the importance of providing a safe and caring learning environment for every student. Students are encouraged to participate in our “High Five for High Plains” program in which emphasis is placed on these five attributes: safety, responsibility, positive attitude, respect and achievement. We strongly believe that these qualities are the essential building blocks needed to develop today’s students into tomorrow’s leaders. In order for children to learn, they must first feel safe, respected, and valued.

     Our diversity is our strength. We know that every child is different and unique. It is this diversity that we embrace and plan for when making instructional decisions. We value the use and integration of technology in our curriculum. High Plains understands the recent shift in education from teaching students how to use technology, to teaching students how to learn with technology. Our technology includes, but is not limited to, iPads, SmartBoards, document cameras, laptops, and desktop computers. Our on-going professional development provides a continuous cycle of learning for all staff members. We are reflective about our instruction and thoughtful about future decisions. This cycle of planning, teaching, monitoring and adjusting is our foundation for differentiation and attention to every child and their unique needs.

     Our parents and community members are essential to the success of High Plains. Through volunteering and the help of our PTCO we have a wide variety of extracurricular offerings for our students. This school-community partnership creates opportunities for students to shine, values the whole child, and embodies what is great about High Plains. Positive relationships are at the core of what High Plains stands for and believes in.

     As a parent, I too am aware that every day you send us your most treasured possession. Thank you for your trust. The High Plains staff and I will continue to work hard in keeping and building upon this foundation of trust as we work collaboratively to promote the mission of the Cherry Creek School District, “To inspire every student to think, to learn, to achieve, to care.”

     I am honored to serve the students, families, and staff as Principal of High Plains Elementary.


Thank you,

Derek Mullner, Principal
