Dear Spartan Families,
On September 19th, during our first torrential downpour in months, we had the honor and pleasure of hosting Julie Lythcott-Haims here to speak about how we can support our young adults into adulthood without over-directing, over-protecting or “concierge”-ing them into a loss of self. She encouraged us to let go, to broaden our view of pathways our students might walk post high school and to continue to confirm their worth to us as humans regardless of a GPA, a test score or any other performance. I was inspired and uplifted and I hope you were too.
We were also lucky as staff to have her at our staff learning the following morning. It was an early “get up” after a late night, but PTSA kept the coffee coming and my staff found themselves quickly energized and encouraged by all Julie had to share with them. There is a great buzz of professional conversation that she began and I look forward to the next steps in our school’s journey.
If you were unable to be with us or want to share it with others, I arranged to have it filmed and the link is here along with the link to our school Curriculum Night video produced by our very own Stacie Erfle:
If you would like to purchase her book, PTSA purchased several copies to sell and last night she signed them, bonus! If you purchase at their site, they will arrange for it to be delivered to you:
If you are interested in some of the resources that she mentioned, here are some pathways to go deeper:
We all want our students to be whole, balanced people who thrive academically and personally at Skyline and beyond. Thank you again for being our parent partners in this work and thank you for braving the elements to be with us.
Here’s to a year of fostering our students’ growth and well-being together!
Donna Hood, Principal
Picture retakes will be on Friday, October 6th in the Titan Gym. Anyone who did not get their picture taken on our regular picture day needs to have one taken during retakes. Thank you.
The graduation date has been set for 2018: Monday, June 18th, 1pm at Safeco Field.
Yearbook Specs for the Class of 2018
Congratulations on becoming a senior! Although the end of your senior year seems far away, it is time to plan for your senior portraits. Summer is a terrific time to have your photos taken in natural light.
Senior photos and quotes will be due on November 5th, 2017 If you choose not to have a professional picture taken, then be sure to have an ASB photo taken the first week of school. While most major photography studios in the area already have these specifications, please have your photographer make a print that matches the following:
Student school photos will be used if the professional photo is not submitted or does not meet our standards as listed above. If a school photo is not available for your student we will use a place holder.
Please submit all portraits as .jpg or .tif files with the resolution at 300 dpi. to the following site:
Don’t forget to remind seniors to submit their quotes to email@example.com and remember to check the school website at least twice a month (especially running start students) for updates and senior information.
Attention all Skyline seniors… Skyline parking registration is now closed.
Mr. Thorsen will be handing out parking passes to all VALID senior drivers that have registered properly and paid the fee on September 14th, 15th & 18th during lunches.
If there are enough spots available the registration will open back up soon for junior parking lottery winners. Listen for an announcement next week on how to sign up for the junior lottery.
The last day for free parking is Friday, 9/15. Tickets will start being issued next week for cars parked illegally or without a visible 2017-2018 SHS parking permit. That means if you are a junior or sophomore NO MORE parking in SHS during school hours starting Monday the 18th.
If you have any questions please contact Mr. Thorsen in the security office… Office 2208
ATTENTION: Please be aware that the Community Center and YMCA have contacted Skyline High School about a problem with students parking in their parking lots during school hours. Their lot is for YMCA and KCLS patrons only. They have respectfully requested that students stop parking there and that continuing to park there could result in ticketing and possibly being towed. Out of respect for our neighbors at the Y and KCLS, we are sharing this message with you so that you are also informed. Skyline High School is not responsible for any issues arising from using parking facilities at the Community Center/YMCA.
The Smarter Balanced Assessment score reports have been released by the state of Washington. The results are available on Family Access. To see student results, click on the Test Score tab and then go the GDWA Graduate of Washington tab. You will see the test scores for your child there.
Although the score report information is available in Family Access, if you would like a paper copy, we will have them available for pick up in the commons during our curriculum night, September 19th. If you cannot attend our curriculum night, students or parents may stop into our main office to request a score report from our Dean of Students, Mr. Gai.
Meeting standard on the Smarter Balanced Assessment is a state graduation requirement. Juniors and Seniors will be scheduled for the retake SBA in the fall of the 2017-2018 school year if:
School staff will be in contact with those students and families by early October. Testing will take place during the school day at Skyline in late October or early November. More information will follow once our testing schedule is finalized.
