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.
Beginning on June 18, the Lake City Public Library will be operating from our Skyway Library. This gives great accessibility to free books to borrow for our neighborhood!

Lego Club: Tuesdays from 4:00-5:00
Summer Reading Program: all summer long, free prizes and activities

While we enjoy our summertime to freshen up the school, attend trainings, and spend time with our families, we are always looking forward to seeing everyone in the fall! Here is some information that will help you plan for the new school year:
The first day of school for students is Tuesday, June 4.
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.
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.
