Welcome to Skyridge Elementary School. At our school, we stand together to place each child at the heart of every decision. All students will be challenged, engaged, and obtain college and career readiness skills for a globally connected society.
The 2017-18 school year has come to an end. It has been a year full of teaching and learning. Our staff has worked hard to provide a high quality, first class education and help every child develop and progress forward. Teachers have created great, creative, standards based lessons, projects, school wide assemblies, character education, field trips, extracurricular activities, and more. Our boys and girls will be moving to their next grade level, and for our fifth graders elementary school has come to an end as they will move to their next educational chapter in life called middle school. We will miss them and wish them all the best. We know that they will be ready! We will welcome new TK/KG and other grade level students and families for the 2018-19 school year. We are also looking forward to welcoming back our returning students and families.
We are incredibly blessed with all of the kind contributions from the following: PTC committee for their participation in year long projects, which have raised a lot of funds for our school, classroom volunteers, Sight Word Busters, Drama and Dance Clubs, and Math League, Assistance League, student teachers, high school volunteers, the NASA Globe project, Life Lab/Earth day projects, STEAM, Destination Imagination, Track and Cross Country teams, and much more. We have so many parents, staff, retired staff, and community members volunteering at our school. Over 140 volunteers were invited to our SR Volunteer Appreciation Tea, which is just amazing.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our teachers, aides, office staff, health aide, support staff, custodial staff. cafeteria personal, district office, Superintendent, Board Members, and most of all you for making this a successful year. All of us worked together on a daily basis to keep our students safe, happy, and learning. Our staff has been busy learning about foundational reading skills all year, yearlong curriculum mapping, and using more technology. All around it has been a big learning curve for all of us. Staff participated in other professional development and trainings that will help us to serve our students better and be the best that we can be. We have been busy giving our students formative and summative assessments (the MAP and CAASPP) so we can measure their progress and adjust our lesson plans accordingly and provide interventions so all students can succeed.
We say goodbye to Mrs. Jacobson, Mrs. Pressler, and Mrs. Kucala who will be retiring at the end of the school year. We are grateful for their services to our students, staff, school, and district.
We wish you a wonderful and restful summer break and look forward to having you all back on August 15, 2018, which is our first day of school. Thank you for bringing your children to our school. Your continued support, understanding, and kind dedication makes Skyridge the unique place that it is.
Our office will be closed from June 18 through August 2, 2018. Please proceed with our online enrollment if you haven't done so already.
We look forward to serving you again for the 2018-19 school year.

Use the five finger rule. Open the book to any page and ask your child to read. Put up a finger every time your child does not know a word. If you have put up more than five fingers before the end of the page, this book is too hard for your child.
Choose books that match your child's likes and interests.
