Welcome to the Home of the Bulldogs
Our Principal - Mr. Toby Haugen
With only four weeks left, students and teachers are preparing to take their 1st quarter benchmark tests. Please encourage your child to do their best. The benchmark tests are what we use to help guide the instruction for the next quarter. Our teachers want to make sure that every child gets the extra time and support needed to achieve at a high level. We know that not every child will have mastered the standards the first time, and that’s ok. We can get them there. The benchmark gives us a good indication of each student’s current progress. When you meet with your child’s teacher during conferences, September 15 and 16, he or she will go over the benchmark as well as other assessments we use to provide your child the best service possible. Please be watching for information coming home about conference sign ups. Conferences will be held on September 15 from 3:30-7:00 p.m. and on September 16 from 1:30-5:00 p.m.
Many parents have asked about how they can best support their child’s education at home. Beginning in September, you will be able to click on the PARENT NEWSLETTER tab at the top of our website and have access to great resources for supporting literacy at home. The resources will be separated into two categories, beginning and intermediate, and will be available in both English and Spanish. We want you to be able to support your child at home. If you ever have questions about how to do that, please give us a call and we will be happy to help!
Remember to help us reinforce our four school rules: Be Prepared, Act Responsibly, Respect Self and Others, and Keep Learning. We are recognizing students every day for doing the right thing at school. When your child brings home a BARK tag please celebrate with them. The best part of my day is talking with kids who have been given a BARK tag. They get SO excited to share their good deeds!
Thank you for your continued support of Skyline Ranch K-8. We are honored to serve your family!
It’s GREAT to be a BULLDOG!
