Dear Parents, Students, and Staff,
Thank you for the opportunity to work with you as we pursue the collective goal of student achievement. I hope that your experience with Skyline High School is positive, whether you are teaching, learning, or parenting. Our vested interest in student achievement provides the common thread that is woven through our relationships and interactions. It is important to the process of student learning that these relationships are both positive and fulfilling.
I believe that significant learning does not occur without a significant relationship. Caring about student performance and achievement is as critical to teaching as providing the appropriate curriculum. Without caring, learning can become a labor void of direction and purpose; and it is the direction and purpose that all students value in their own education. It is the responsibility of the teacher and school to provide this caring environment to all students.
Know that throughout the school year and anytime you need the support or assistance of our administrative staff, please ask. We are committed to reaching high levels of student achievement.
