Letter From The Principal - Mrs. Denice Erickson

                                      Bulldog Families,

     With first quarter over and heading in to the second there are many successes to celebrate with the students of Skyline Ranch K-8. First, all students completed their first quarter of the new Eureka Math curriculum which pushes students to think and problem solve at higher levels. With this added element of rigor in our mathematics instruction, students and teachers alike were challenged to overcome learning obstacles. Our bulldog students and staff showed that they can rise to higher expectations and achieve at high levels as our mission statement requires. Additionally our extra-curricular programs are off to a great start. Our softball team took 2nd place in the district, our baseball team worked extremely hard, and our battle of the books and choir clubs have been meeting regularly.

Another success stems from our positive behavior intervention system. There were over 2,000 BARK tags awarded in the first quarter. Students can earn BARK tags in four key areas by: Being Prepared, Acting Responsibly, Respecting Themselves and Others, and Keeping on Learning. When Skyline Ranch students earn BARK tags, they are placed into a drawing where prizes are awarded each week. This system proactively encourages students to continue to display positive behaviors. The goal is to reduce the number of disciplinary referrals and incidences by encouraging the students to behave in a positive way. This program has been in effect for over three years at Skyline Ranch and the positive culture and environment that has emerged from this program is still improving daily.

In this next quarter we will work toward our school mission of ensuring that all students achieve at a high level by using our school wide reteach and enrichment time to provide skill based interventions for students. This program will target the specific learning needs of students and work to fill gaps in learning. For our students needing enrichment, they will be provided with that extra push they need to reach even higher levels of achievement. Our teachers will continue to analyze student data to inform their instruction.

There are also many exciting events happening in the 2nd quarter! Our boys’ and girls’ soccer teams will face off against other FUSD teams. Up and coming events include our fall festival, staff of Skyline Ranch vs. staff of Circle Cross Ranch softball game, middle school dance, honor roll and perfect attendance awards assembly. There is sure to be a spirit week as well and the box top competition will continue! It is truly great to be a bulldog- Believe, Succeed, Lead!
