Existing students do not need to re-enroll for the next school year.
The California School Dashboard for the 2018-2019 school year is live. The Dashboard is the visual representation of California's School Accountability plan and displays the performance of all schools and districts in the areas of accountability. The Dashboard is intended to help schools and districts identify strengths and areas for improvement. Check the dashboard results by clicking on California Dashboard. You can see the scores for how our students have done in English, Math, Chronic Absenteeism, Suspensions, and EL students. As educational leaders and staff we strive to improve the outcomes for all of our students.
Congratulations on the continuous progress and improvements of Skyridge students over the last two years.
The Dashboard is displayed using a color system. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, and Blue. It is a bit like a gas gauge. Red is almost empty and blue is full.
We have made steady progress thanks to our wonderful students, incredible parents working with us hand in hand, and highly effective staff working systematically, focused, and positively to give your sons and daughters a high quality education. We are always learning new strategies and working to improve our role as staff.
We want to celebrate this partnership and share the scores with you. We still have areas to work on but proudly share our many improvements.
We want to acknowledge our parents, PTC, and volunteers as you provide our students with opportunities that help them feel safe, and feel a great sense of belonging and loving care. You all are part of the village that helps to make our school a welcoming community. Thank you for supporting our students' attendance which is a critical part of their success.
A heartfelt thank you to all of you and appreciation for your continued support of Skyridge. Please share this great news.

PRINCIPAL'S WEEKLY MESSAGE
Dear Skyridge Families,
Our 3rd PTC meeting was very well attended. Check my weekly email to families to see the notes attached. Thank you to all of the participants and taking on these great projects for our students and school.
Big shout out and congratulations to Mrs. Lahr and the Fishy Crackers who performed in the Destination Imagination Tournament in Rocklin. The Fishy Crackers took first place in the Elementary Level Scientific Challenge!
Mrs. Medeiros, Art Docent chairperson, and the art docents have done an amazing job this school year. The time commitment for being an Art Docent is only 4 hours per month per docent (unless you want to do more). It would require 2 hours per month to get "trained" on the project (which will be newly implemented next year) and 2 hours to execute the project with a class (approx. 1 hour is set-up/clean-up and 1 hour is art play.) You do NOT need experience in art, only a thirst to get creative. There are lesson plans like the one attached that make the projects super simple!. If you are interested in being an Art Docent please contact us and we will connect you with her.
Please be sure to read the updates from our Superintendent in regards to COVID 19 and our AUSD plan. I sent a detailed email this morning. We also post on Class Dojo. We adhere to all safety regulations.
Our Clubs and big events are canceled or postponed until March 31st.
Based on your annual earnings, you may be eligible to receive the Earned Income Tax Credit from the Federal Government (Federal EITC). The Federal EITC is a refundable federal income tax credit for low-income working individuals and families. The Federal EITC has no effect on certain welfare benefits. In most cases, Federal EITC payments will not be used to determine eligibility for Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income, food stamps, low-income housing, or most Temporary Assistance For Needy Families payments. Even if you do not owe federal taxes, you must file a federal tax return to receive the Federal EITC. Be sure to fill out the Federal EITC form in the Federal Income Tax Return Booklet. For information regarding your eligibility to receive the Federal EITC, including information on how to obtain the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Notice 797 or any other necessary forms and instructions, contact the IRS by calling 1-800-829-3676 or through its website at www.irs.gov.
You may also be eligible to receive the California Earned Income Tax Credit (California EITC) starting with the calendar year 2015 tax year. The California EITC is a refundable state income tax credit for low-income working individuals and families. The California EITC is treated in the same manner as the Federal EITC and generally will not be used to determine eligibility for welfare benefits under California law. To claim the California EITC, even if you do not owe California taxes, you must file a California income tax return and complete and attach the California EITC Form (FTB 3514). For information on the availability of the credit eligibility requirements and how to obtain the necessary California forms and get help filing, contact the Franchise Tax Board at 1-800-852-5711 or through its website at www.ftb.ca.gov.
