Soar With the Eagles

Welcome to Skyway Elementary School

Welcome to Skyway Elementary School!  Our school opened in 2000 in the rapidly growing Coeur d'Alene Place neighborhood, and quickly gained recognition for our character education program and student achievement. Our student population varies between 500 and 600 students. Our mascot is the eagle, and we encourage our students to soar with success, just as the eagle does.

Wow, is that a ton of food or what? This year's food drive was an amazing success! We also have 10 turkeys as well!

Thanks to everyone for helping our community!

 

PTA Needs Volunteers

Santa Shop is right around the corner and we simply cannot do it without the help of our wonderful volunteers!! We will need help assisting the students with shopping and staying within their budget, wrapping gifts, and overseeing the students who have finished shopping in their classroom with some fun Christmas activities! We can use all the help we can get! :)

Santa Shop will be held from December 4th through December 12th.  We desperately need volunteers to help Santa Shop run smoothly!  Please visit Volunteerspot at http://vols.pt/gJZbps to find a time that works for you! 

Thanks for your help and support!

National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week

USA

National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week is held each year the week before Thanksgiving. This is a time for us all to start to think about what we are thankful for, and a perfect time to share our compassion with our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness.

This year, National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week will be held from November 15-23, 2014.

Participating in National Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week not only brings greater awareness to our community, but also helps to promote the national endeavor to end hunger and homelessness. The plight of those without a home, or those living in poverty, can be both lonely and difficult. Addressing their struggles by organizing and participating in this week may bring greater solidarity and understanding, as well as promote future involvement.

This year, Skyway Elementary is partnering with Family Promise of North Idaho. Skyway families will assist local families to achieve sustainable housing. A network of nearly 20 local churches feed and shelter families in need. During their stay case managers connect families to needed resources, referrals and housing. Our generous donations will help this worthy cause.  Please bring your spare change, coffee money for a week, or other financial donations to Skyway during November 15-23. The class to collect the most money will receive a hot chocolate afternoon break on Monday, November 24th.

Grading Periods Change

Families,

 This school year, elementary teachers are using a semester system for grading, similar to our secondary schools.  The longer grading period affords teachers the time to formatively assess and modify instruction to better meet the needs of all children.  At conference time, your child’s teacher will share a progress report as well as examples of his/her work that demonstrates your student’s skills and abilities in reading and mathematics.

 At the end of the semester, January 22nd, you will receive your child’s first semester report card.  In our continued efforts to create an effective reporting tool, the Standards Based Report Card has been modified to better express your child’s progress toward meeting our state standards.  Standards may be grouped together or clarified to help parents better understand how their child is progressing.

 If you need further clarification, please communicate with your child’s teacher or principal.  We welcome your feedback and input.
