Skyview Upper Elementary School
FROM MRS. BERICAL
Dear Skyview Families,
Our second week of school was filled with excitement in our classrooms and many smiling faces! Our students are becoming more familiar with the beginning of year routines and procedures and are feeling more confident in their daily schedules. We continue to focus on the importance of building relationships within each classroom community and valuing each student for their individual set of abilities and talents. It is important to the faculty and staff at Skyview that each one of our students feels safe, valued and a part of their classroom community. We will continue to foster this environment throughout the school year.
Thank you to all of the families who participated in our first Home and School meeting of the year. Home and School meetings will be held on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:00pm. Parents/Guardians have the option to join in person at the Skyview library or via Zoom. Please always be sure to scroll through my entire newsletter each week so that you can read the Home and School Association Update as there is a lot of important information regarding how you and your child can be a part of the Skyview community.
I hope you all have a relaxing weekend! Please take some time to ask your child about some of the relationship building activities they have done within their classrooms over the first two weeks of school!
Home & School Association Update
A Message from Home & School!
Thank you to everyone who joined the first home and school meeting this week. It was a great turnout and we had a very productive meeting. Here’s a link to the September mtg minutes.
We are looking for homeroom classroom parents! If you are interested in volunteering, please be on the lookout for a sign up through Konstella. The sign up will show which classrooms are still in need of a lead parent. The homeroom lead is responsible for organizing classroom parties. This year we will have co-lead opportunities for each classroom too.
Are you interested in volunteering at Home & School events? If so, you can browse through the volunteer opportunities and sign up directly through the “Committee” tab in Konstella. You must have your board approved clearances to volunteer.
Get more info. on obtaining your clearances here: https://www.methacton.org/Page/186.
