    Weekly update for November 3, 2019

    Monday, November 11th - Veterans Day (no school)

    Dear Skyline Parents,

    What a great Red Ribbon and Halloween Celebration last week! Thank you so much to our PTA for their support of our San Dieguito Alliance High School speakers along with our PlayItSafe Assembly. Come by and see our Heathy Choices pledge in the hallway! It’s a great time to follow up with your child regarding personal safety and healthy choices.

    Speaking of Halloween, I hope you all enjoyed celebrating with your children. I wanted to share a special thank you to Jana Guy for leading Skyline in all the efforts to make the Halloween Carnival such a success. Thank you Jana for your leadership and organization. It was such a fun event! Additionally, I would like to thank, Mike Bentz, Lisa Campbell, and Estela Leidy for their planning and implementation of a great Halloween parade last Thursday.

    Next week we are excited to send our sixth graders to camp. We wish them a safe trip filled with exploration, team building, and enjoyment. Please refer to your teachers’ emails for specific details regarding the trip. I’ve been told to share with all our sixth parents to pack long socks to help the kids keep warm during their hikes. 

    Enjoy your Sunday,

    Kim Pinkerton

    In the interest of continuing adult education and sharing information on raising our children, there will be a section in every weekly update with a link to an article.
