Welcome to the 2016-17 school year! We are so pleased your child is attending Skyline School. This month we begin one of our most important endeavors—working with you to educate your child. As we begin the 2016-17 school year . . .
We promise to greet all students each morning with the expectation that each day will be positive and productive. Will you learn about your child’s classroom program so that you can show the same enthusiasm?
We promise to prepare informative and motivating lessons. Will you ensure that your child comes to school on time and well rested to appreciate them?
We promise to make each day an intellectually stimulating one. Will you ask questions and encourage discussions at home that allow your child to share their day with you?
We promise to construct worthwhile assignments as an integral part of the instructional program. Will you check daily to see that your child has completed his homework to the best of his ability?
We promise to call home whenever we feel a child needs extra help in getting along with others, growing in responsibility, or achieving to his or her full potential. Will you call us if you hear a report about the school that causes you concern?
Finally, we promise you our very best efforts to make Skyline the safest and finest school possible. We encourage you to be an active partner in the education of your child and we ask for your support and cooperation as we begin what will surely be a wonderful year. Don’t forget to come to the office, sign in and get a visitor’s badge before going on campus.
Back-to-School Night is this Thursday, September 1st from 6:15 – 7:30 p.m. I would like to ask that children not attend Back-to-School Night. This is a time for you to meet your child’s teacher, and for the teachers to share expectations and curriculum for the upcoming school year. It is also a time to ask questions and receive clarification on any issues for which you have concerns. We will hold a short parent meeting from 6:15 – 6:30 p.m. I encourage all parents to attend this important meeting to hear the principal’s welcome, as well as a short message from our PTA and Foundation presidents. Following the welcome, you will be invited to your child’s classroom from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. We look forward to seeing you all on Thursday.
