    Dear Skyline Families,

     

    There are three weeks left of school and so much left to do! This is the time when many classes are taking trips and culminate units of study with special activities and events. I just hope you have a calendar big enough to keep track of it all! Sixth grade families, don’t forget to mark your calendars for promotion on Friday, June 14th at 9:15 a.m. There will be more information to come.

     

    I am frequently outside at the front of the school as our students arrive in the morning, and I have noticed that we have an increased amount of students coming to school in the morning drinking Starbuck’s coffee drinks and energy drinks such as Monster and Red Bull. These drinks are laden with caffeine and have very high concentrations of sugar. Caffeinated drinks can also cause side effects such as irritability, concentration difficulties, headaches, restlessness, dehydration, and nausea. I have also observed many students eating unhealthy snacks such as chips and candy before school. Research shows that children who eat a healthy breakfast tend to show improved academic performance, longer attention span, better attendance and decreased hyperactivity in school. Skipping breakfast and eating sugary food or drink items will make your child feel tired, restless or irritable by mid-morning. I would encourage families to have discussions about what would be the healthiest drinks and food to bring to school for breakfast, snack, and lunch. If your child brings Starbucks drinks or energy drinks to school, we are now asking that they finish their drink before coming on campus as Skyline is committed to providing a school environment that promotes children’s health, well-being and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and drinking and physical activity.

     

    We have an increasingly large number of students arriving at school in the morning before the bell rings at 8:35 a.m. to go on to campus. We believe students are arriving earlier so that they can congregate in groups with their phones, looking at videos and social media apps. Staff members have also heard groups of students make negative comments about other students as they are using their social media. Skyline staff has made the decision, beginning on Tuesday, May 28th, to not allow students to use technology in the morning before school once they arrive to the campus. If families need to get in contact with their child, please call the school office. Students will be allowed to use cell phones at the front of the campus at the end of the day to contact their families.

    Finally, I would like to invite all Skyline families to our Open House this Wednesday, May 30th, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. If you would like to purchase dinner before Open House, Subway, Panda Express and Local Greens and will serve dinner from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.  This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate your child’s year and all their amazing hard work and effort.  

     

    Sincerely,

     

    Lisa Denham
