It is amazing that we have reached the end of the 2015-16 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 at 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, both academically and socially, with them this year. I would like to also acknowledge my appreciation for Skyline’s staff. They are a highly committed and loyal team that deeply cares about our students. They collaborate and work closely together to teach and support our children in their learning as well as in the development of life skills as members of our school community. Finally, I would like to thank all parents for their support and dedication to Skyline, particularly our parent volunteers and members of our PTA, Site Council, ELAC, and Solana Beach Schools Foundation. You truly do make a difference here at Skyline. If you have any questions regarding the upcoming 2016-17 school year, please don’t hesitate to call us. The office staff will return to work on August 8th. 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 29th!
Avoid the Summer Slide with the Solana Beach Summer Learning Challenge
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 "step up to the learning challenge" 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...
However, if you are looking for other activities to enjoy over the summer, please visit our website and click on the Avoid the Summer Slide Link. You will find a variety of ENGAGING and FUN activities for your child to do over the summer. Quick links to Camp Wonderopolis, Dream Box, Compass Learning and a Keyboarding program are also included. Feel free to try out any and/or all of the various resources-It's all about challenging the brain a little bit each day with fun, yet educational activities.
We wish you a safe, restful and fun summer!
