Dear Skyline Families,
I want to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving next week! Skyline School will be closed the week of November 20 – 24. We will resume classes at our normal time on Monday, November 27th, and our 6th graders will be leaving for Camp Cuyamaca.
“Gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” (Gilbert Chesterton) That is a perfect reflection of what I experience at Skyline School. Every day, I am moved and inspired by what I see. After more than eleven years here, I still marvel at the incredible devotion of my staff and their unique ability to teach and inspire our children, and I still celebrate the amazing support of our parents and community. During this time of Thanksgiving, I want to share my gratitude and thank you for being such an important part of our children’s lives.
I believe that helping children succeed is one of the most important things any of us can do. That is why I am so grateful for my Skyline staff. They dedicate their lives to serving our children. They take each child’s success personally. They spend hours before and after school doing the extra things that few people see but that make all the difference for the children they teach. I see and feel their passion when I visit classrooms. I see the joy in the faces of our children, and I hear gratitude from parents who appreciate the difference our staff members make for their children.
Our parents allow us to be part of their children’s lives, which is an amazing honor and a tremendous privilege. They support us in the work that we do, and they share with us in the joy of their children’s education. I am extremely grateful for all the support that our parents show Skyline School.
I am so grateful to be part of the Skyline family. Thank you for all that you do, and I wish you and your family a very safe and happy Thanksgiving.
Don’t forget to mark these important dates on your calendar:
