  • Welcome from Mrs. Peak, our new Skyway Principal

    Dear Skyway Families,
     
    I hope this letter finds you healthy and happy! I hope you are enjoying your summer! My family arrived three weeks ago to North Idaho. I just love the weather and the beauty all around us. My three boys have been enjoying all the water access! Interestingly, one of my favorite things about living here in Coeur d'Alene is hearing kids outside playing!  
     
    Peak family photo This summer I hope you can do three things for me and Mrs. Kelly, your Principal Assistant:
    • Read an amazing book
    • Try something new you have never done before
    • Make a memory with someone you love
    At the beginning of school, Mrs. Kelly and I will be asking you about one or all of these things. We will also be ready to share this information with you.
     
    In the fall, we will launch a new writing program using the workshop model: to, with and by. This program will develop you as a writer. One way to build your writing muscle is to share ideas and communicate. Getting ideas out in a discussion format is the forefront skill to writing narratives! I can't wait to see each of you grow as a writer this year!
     
    Boys and girls, have the best summer. I can't wait to meet each and every one of you. Mrs. Kelly, the entire Skyway staff, and I are eagerly awaiting your return. We will have more dates set for you by mid August. Until then, stay safe and have fun!  
     
    Warmly,
     
    Jennifer Peak, Principal

Ideas For Families

  • Do I Look Weak?

     
    Teachers and parents sometimes express the following worry: “When I calmly delay a conversation or a consequence instead of squashing defiance (or other frustrating misbehaviors), do I look weak? If I don’t bring the wrath in that moment, will kids or adults who are watching think I’m a pushover?”
     
    No. No, they won’t.
     
    Imagine this: You’re in a restaurant enjoying a lovely meal. But some lady at the table off to your right is having the opposite of a lovely meal. And she’s bringing the wrath. She’s getting louder. She wants to see the manager. Somebody is going to pay for this! She gets more and more red faced and threatening.
     
    As you watch her, what is going through your mind? She’s so powerful? She’s so impressive? You wish you could rant and rave like that?
     
    Probably not. You’re probably thinking she ought to control herself and calm down. You’re probably the opposite of impressed.
     
    Self-control is actually a form of strength. There is much more power in the ability to keep our cool than there is in yelling, threatening, and lecturing.
     
    Some people even repeat this phrase to themselves in moments when they need to remember to remain calm: “Anger and frustration feed misbehavior. Anger and frustration feed misbehavior…”
     
    Put your mind at ease. You don’t lose an ounce of power when you choose not to yell or “drop the hammer” in the heat of the moment — you gain power. By staying calm and creating a more thoughtful response, you are enhancing your authority as an adult/leader. You can do this!
