    Skyway is having a pizza fundraiser

    Eat Pizza and Help Skyway on April 23!

    If you stop by the Little Caesar's Pizza in Hayden on April 23, you can not only pick up dinner for your family but you can also help our school! Simply show the pizza flier when ordering your pizza and the store will give part of the sale back to our school. It is as easy as that! The fliers were sent home with students, you can print one from this link, or even just pull it up on your phone and show the digital image to the friendly cashier taking your order! Skyway would like to thank Little Caesars Pizza of Hayden for their support.

    Skyway's run for fun is looking for volunteers

    Skyway's Run for Fun Club Needs Your Help

    The Skyway Running Club needs volunteers to help with our lunchtime exercise program! Students will be running during their lunch recesses and we need adults to help cheer them on, help set up/take down the course and enjoy time outdoors with the students. Volunteers do not have to run or coach, they will be helping students track their miles and handing out prizes.  The time commitment is very short, 11:45 am - 1:00 pm any MWF. If you can help even one day, we would love to have you! Please click the link below to schedule a time!

    PTA is looking for new volunteers

    Interested in PTA Leadership?

    The PTA is looking for 2-3 enthusiastic, positive people to join the PTA Board for next school year and beyond. Board members are integral in planning and organizing fundraisers and events, providing grants for field trips, school supplies, and activities, and enhancing the overall student experience. We want to make Skyway the envy of every other school in the district! 
     
    Board members are expected to attend a monthly Board meeting, wherein we plan and discuss upcoming events. They are also expected to attend the monthly public PTA meeting. Ideally, we are looking for a 2 year commitment to the Board, as it takes time to learn and grow into the roles and responsibilities. While multiple positions are available, we are specifically seeking a new Treasurer. This position requires a good bit of training, as it involves handling the bank accounts and taxes for the PTA. Our current Treasurer will happily remain on the Board next year and act as a mentor for the new Treasurer.
     
    If interested, please contact the PTA at skywaypta@hotmail.com, or text Brian Hober at 208-719-1852.

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!
