From Mrs. Berical

Dear Families,

I would like to thank all of the families who visited Skyview for American Education week. It is always wonderful to welcome families into our school community. Your presence helps to create a strong home and school connection. Thank you for your continued dedication to your child's learning.

We have a short school week ahead! Our students will have school on Monday, November 21st and Tuesday, November 22nd. On behalf of myself and the entire team at Skyview, we would like to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. We hope you find time during the days off from school to enjoy the time with your families.

Have a wonderful weekend!


Mrs. Berical

Career Day- Save the Date

Please save the date for March 23rd as Skyview will hold their career day in the morning hours. If interested in presenting on this morning, more information will be forthcoming after Thanksgiving.


If your child is getting a school breakfast or lunch, it is important that they have their student ID ready to use when they go through the cafeteria line. Having the ID ready speeds up the process of moving through the line. Please remind your child to bring their ID to school each day and to have it easily accessible at breakfast and lunch.

In addition, please remind your child that appropriate behavior is expected in the cafeteria. Manners such as saying please and thank you, throwing trash away and cleaning their space after they are finished eating is expected. We greatly appreciate you discussing these expectations with your child so that we can work together to provide a more pleasurable dining experience.
