    Dear Skyline Families,
     
    It is amazing that it is the last few days of the 2013-14 school year! It has been a wonderful school year. We have a special place here at Skyline School, and it is the result of many wonderful people. With students, staff and parents working together, great things will continue to happen for students in our school. I have truly appreciated the opportunity to work with your children on a daily basis this past school year. They continue to amaze me, and we have seen so much growth with them this year, both academically and socially.  Skyline’s office will close on Friday, June 20th, and will reopen on August 4th. I wish you all a fun and relaxing summer; and before we know it, we will be back for the first day of school on August 25th!

    Engage the Brain and Avoid the Summer Slide

    Every year children across the country experience what is known as "The Summer Slide." The typical child can lose anywhere from 1-3 months of academic progress every summer! In an effort to minimize this loss, the Solana Beach School District has put together a number of resources to "Engage the Brain" of your child over the summer. Of course, the very best activity for them to do is to READ, READ, READ- so if you do nothing else, please provide 20 minutes a day for your child to read for pleasure. If you are looking for other activities to enjoy over the summer, please click on the Avoid the Summer Slide link below. You will find a variety of STREAM (Science, Technology, Research, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) activities as well as links to Dream Box, Compass Learning and a Keyboarding program. Feel free to try out any and/or all of the various resources-It's all about Engaging the Brain a little bit each day with fun, yet educational activities.

     
    How to Learn Math for Students - Stanford On-Line Class
     
    We are excited to offer you an opportunity to participate with your children in a free on-line class taught by Professor Jo Boaler through Stanford University. The course is a sequence of 6 short, interactive lessons. The goals of the course include:
    • Teaching students a growth mindset
    • Giving students a positive relationship with mathematics
    • Teaching students powerful mathematics strategies
    The course is designed for students in 6th grade on up; however, it is also appropriate for younger students who take the course with their parents. As we continue to move into Common Core math, I think this course will give you an excellent insight and understanding of how your children are learning math here at school.
