    Skyway Garden Needs Families for Gardening and Harvesting

    Summertime is here! After a chilly spring, things are growing and blooming in the Skyway Garden. We are looking for families who are interested in helping out a week at the garden. Your family can weed, water, smell and eat the tasty fruits and veggies that are ready to be harvested! Bring them home to your family or donate them to the food bank. We just want you to enjoy the garden, get your hands dirty and connect with each other.

    To sign up for a week or two of tending to the garden, go to Sign Up for Skyway School Garden.

Principal's Message

  • Rick Kline is the Principal of Skyway Elementary

    Mr. Rick Kline

     

    I take great pride and joy in welcoming you to the 2017-18 school year. It is exciting to be part of a community of great students, parents, and teachers at Skyway Elementary this year!

    Skyway Elementary prides itself in being a “Community of Learners” where our students and staff look for opportunities to be learners in our daily lives.  We are committed to high academic expectations, mutual respect, and social responsibility.

    The staff at Skyway has high expectations for all of our students.  We have even higher expectations of ourselves. This year, the Skyway staff will continue to dedicate our focus on improving student learning for all students.  We will continue to work diligently through collaboration to discuss teaching strategies to meet the needs of our students.  We will improve student learning through improved instruction focusing on aligned curriculum, data collection, and assessment.  We are committed to finding each student’s skill level and taking them forward in their learning.

    Parents and community members are partners in educating Skyway’s students.  Volunteer opportunities abound.  Our Watch D.O.G.S (Dads of Great Students) Program is strong and supported by over 100 dads, uncles, granddads and other important male figures in students’ lives.  They volunteer in the school and on our campus on a regular basis.  They can be identified by their red vest or jacket and are invaluable to us.

    Please join our Parent Teacher Organization.  Our PTO is vital and strong, providing valuable support for our school through volunteering, providing classroom mini-grants, funding extra-curricular activities, and more!  

    As the site administrator, I believe that in order to be successful, we need to partner with you, the families of our students.  We need your support as we ask students to practice reading, writing, and mathematics at home.  Throughout the year, I will continue to meet and talk with many of you, as well as to learn about your children and family.  If there is anything I can do to help or provide answers to questions you may have, please let me know.

    We appreciate your continued support.  We invite you to visit Skyway to be a part of our programs and activities, and to become a part of our “Community of Learners”.  Thank you for sharing your children with us.  They are the reason that we are here.  We are honored to be entrusted with this critical component of their lives.  

    Respectfully,

    Rick Kline

     

Ideas For Families

  •  

    Are You Preparing Kids for a World that Doesn’t Exist?

    Is it really okay to hold kids accountable for their misbehavior… or is this an archaic concept that no longer applies to raising kids? We at Love and Love have always taught the same thing: Hope and pray for affordable mistakes, provide a strong and sincere dose of loving empathy, and let logical or natural consequences do the teaching.
     
    We provide unconditional love, dignity, and opportunities to make small mistakes. That’s the “love” in Love and Logic. The “logic” develops inside the child’s heart and mind when they discover that quality of one’s choices largely determines the quality of one’s life.
     

    Do choices matter?

     
    Over the past few years, a strangely popular “no-consequences” movement has developed among many. They seem to argue that if we just do a better job of loving kids and meeting their underlying emotional needs, there will be no need for consequences. They also suggest that using consequences… even reasonable ones delivered with great love… is a big no-no.
     
    Have you heard this, as well?
     
    There’s some truth in what they say. Yes! Loving kids, building trusting relationships, and meeting needs is essential… and it does tend to cut down on the need for consequences. The downside of their rather extreme position is that the world is a consequential place.
     

    It’s pay now or pay later.

     
    We can either help our kids learn that choices matter when they are young and the consequences are small, or we can allow the world to teach this lesson when they are older and the consequences are often tragic.
     

    Are we going to prepare our kids for a world that doesn’t exist… or the real one?

     

    Thanks for reading! Our goal is to help as many families as possible.
