Show Your Greatness!

Skyview students have taken the "Show Your Greatness Campaign" to the next level with a fundraiser to support a local organization that is doing good in the community! 6th and 7th grade students have voted for their proceeds to support the Humane Society of Minnesota and 8th grade students selected the Kids in Need Foundation. If your student comes asking for pennies or other loose change, every coin counts! Ask your student about the competition and how advisory classes are competing for the WIN!

  • Sometimes, students checked out devices/chargers for the day because they did not have the device/charger checked out to them. If these devices/chargers were not returned at the end of the day, they are still checked out to them, and they are responsible for them.
