    Dear Parents,
     
    Spring Parent Conference week is scheduled next week, March 9th – 13th. Our teachers spend a lot of time preparing for conferences, and parents are encouraged to prepare as well. Be sure to address concerns that were discussed in the first conference. Take some time to talk with your child prior to the conference to determine if progress has been made in the identified areas. During the conference some good questions to ask include: 
    • Is my child in different groups for different subjects? Why? 
    • How well does my child get along with others? 
    • What are my child’s best and worst subjects?
    • Is my child working up to his/her ability?
    It is a good idea to ask the most important questions first, just in case time runs out before you and the teacher have a chance to discuss them all. Be sure to ask the teacher for specific suggestions on ways to help your child do better. This is the most important part of the meeting. It will become your action plan. 
    After the conference, start the action plan immediately. Discuss the plan with your child. To see if the action plan is working, watch your child’s behavior and check your child’s class work and homework. Meeting with your child’s teacher should help build strong parent-teacher partnerships, partnerships that are needed if you and your child’s teacher are to reach your common goal of helping your child get the best education possible.
     
    Daylight Savings Time 
    Daylight saving time begins while we sleep this Saturday into Sunday, with clocks springing ahead an hour at 2 a.m. on March 8. We lose an hour of sleep, but gain an hour of daylight at the end of the day. Don’t forget to change your clocks!!
     
    Parents of 6th Grade Students
    You are invited to attend the next PTA meeting at Solana Pacific School in the theater on March 31, 2015, at 8:45 a.m. Rick Schmitt, Superintendent of San Dieguito Union High School District, will be presenting an update at that time.
     
    Vote for Skyline Students
    Four teams of Skyline 6th graders, working with Skyline's STREAM teacher, Gina Thackrey, have created videos that illustrate math problems applied to real life scenarios. The videos have been submitted to a national competition for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders called the Math Video Challenge. In order to advance to the next round of judging, they need your help. Only the top 100 publicly voted videos will advance. The good news is that you can create an account (just a user name, e-mail, and password) and vote every day for the same videos (and you can do that for all four groups-EVERYDAY!). The students have worked so hard and they cannot move on without you, please start voting today!

    Here are the links to the student videos:
