Dear Storm Families,
We are now into second semester and the second half of the school year. As a building staff, we will continue to engage in collaborative professional developments focused on student learning and support systems. We appreciate the trust you have bestowed on us to educate your children during this difficult year.
As we enter the second semester, I encourage all students to reflect on their first semester and set goals for themselves. Reflection and goal setting are important life skills that will serve students beyond their schooling at Skyview.
For our students to have the best chance of success, they need to attend all classes, actively participate and communicate with teachers. Attendance is very important both in-person and in our remote learning environment. Students not in attendance miss critical instruction and lose the opportunity to receive real-time feedback. Teachers use in-class formative assessments to make in the moment and future instructional decisions. Your partnership to encourage students to maintain good attendance and actively engage in classes is appreciated.
I look forward to the day when we can serve our students in an in-person environment. Please continue to watch for communication from the District and Skyview. Until then, we will continue to make the most of the remote learning environment by living our core covenants of Trust, Integrity and a Commitment to Excellence.
If you ever have questions or concerns, please contact me.
Andy Meyer – Principal
