What's Happening at Skyway

  • Calling All Dads!

          We are in need of Skyway Dads to help us with Aloha Day!  Aloha Day will be held on the last day of school (Friday, June 7th) from 9:30-11:30 at Skyway.  We will be providing all the dads who volunteer with bottled water, coffee, and doughnuts. Dads will be in charge of running an Aloha Day station.  Stations include fun activities like three legged race, sack race, soccer, relay races, juggling, cup stacking, etc. If you are interested in taking part in this very fun day please e-mail Roni Melton (rmelton@cdaschools.org) or Megan Neary (mneary@cdaschools.org).  We are looking forward to seeing lots of Skyway Dads at Aloha Day this year!

    Run For 271 is June 1

    Please join us for our 8th annual Run for #271 event! 


    The goal of the event is to help promote healthy and happy living to our local youth as well as provide a family-friendly day to the community. In doing so, we've made it a priority to ensure that 100% of the proceeds from this event go directly to our eleven local elementary schools!! This way we help support the youth in our community.

    Thank You STCU

    Spokane Teachers Credit Union (STCU) recently awarded three Skyway teachers with $100 grants for classroom materials. Ms. Neary, Mrs. Bistline and Ms. Swanson were all the recipients of this surprise donation. We appreciate the generous support of area businesses such at STCU! 


    Lost and Found

    Our Lost and Found is overflowing! With the warm afternoons many students are taking off their jackets or sweatshirts and leaving them on the field. This is especially happening during recess or the running club. Please have your child check out the Lost and Found tables in the hallway to see if any of the items belong to your family.

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!
