It is amazing that we have reached the end of the 2016-17 school year, and that this will be the last time we walk into the old Skyline that has been here since 1955. For the past 61 years, Skyline School has been a place where memories and community spirit run deep. Close to 25,000 students have attended Skyline, and many of those same students have moved back to Solana Beach over the years and have had their own children attend Skyline School! In a year’s time, we will be moving back into a brand new beautiful building, but more importantly, we will be bringing with us the incredible spirit and camaraderie that lies in our current walls. It is not just the bricks and mortar that make Skyline such a special place, it is the people that make Skyline so special. We have amazing students, a talented staff, and supportive parents and community members. I look forward to watching this transformation over the next year, and I am so excited that our students have this wonderful opportunity to walk into a brand new campus at the end of August 2018.
It is such a pleasure being the principal here at Skyline. I truly appreciate the opportunity to work with your children on a daily basis! 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 your children. They collaborate and work closely together to teach and support your children in their learning as well as in the development of life skills to prepare them for their future. 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. I am sure you are going to have plenty of questions as we head into our transition year for the 2017-18 school year. Our office staff will be in Room 1 at Solana Vista from June 19-23 and from August 7-11. You are welcome to come visit us if you have questions or you can call us at (858) 794-3600. The office staff and I will move into our temporary Skyline campus across the street at Earl Warren on August 14th. We will have important information that will be sent out to families in both the 4-6 regular program and the Global Education program throughout the summer regarding new procedures, CDC information, etc. Information will be mailed home, and I also encourage you to check Skyline’s webpage throughout the summer. 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 Tuesday, August 29th!
