Dear Skyline Families,

 

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!  I hope that each of you had a wonderful summer. We are excited to welcome you to Skyline Village, our interim campus for the 2017-18 school year. It is going to be so fun watching our new Skyline School being built across the street this year. It is amazing how much they have done in such a short period of time! Even though we are on a temporary campus, we are committed to making this school year a very positive experience for your children. All of our students are deserving of a rich, meaningful, purposeful and rigorous education, and it will take all stakeholders: students, staff, parents/families, community and our district to ensure a welcoming, inclusive, supported school environment where academic and personal success is achieved by all. I am committed to working in collaboration with you to continue to develop and implement this shared vision. We will work together as a team this school year to create a nurturing, disciplined, and challenging environment so all students have access to high quality instruction and can learn at optimum levels.  We have so much to be proud of as a staff, family, and community. We are also committed to continuing to provide a campus that ensures student safety. I would like to remind all parents that once school begins, all parents will need to come into the front office to sign in and get a visitor’s badge before going onto the campus.

 

We are excited about our Discovery Lab enrichment classes, and I know our students will enjoy attending art, PE, computer/technology and STREAM (Science, Technology, Research, Art, and Mathematics). Gina Thackrey will continue as our full-time, credentialed STREAM teacher. She empowers our students to develop life and career skills so that they are able to think critically, communicate effectively, be creative, and collaborate successfully, and to provide exposure and experiences in STEM-related fields.   We are also pleased to have Elizabeth Siskowic as our art instructor and Danielle Schulte as our computer/technology instructor. Finally, we are excited to welcome Melissa Murray as our new PE instructor. We know your children are going to love their enrichment classes!

 

We are in the process of finalizing our class lists, and the office is busy adding new students to the class lists. We have a new procedure this year for completing the Student Data Confirmation process that must be done before viewing your child’s teacher for the upcoming school year in the Parent Portal on August 24th after 6:00 p.m.
