Auburn 49er Lion's Club Reading Project
Skyridge School is excited to once again partner with the Auburn 49er Lions Club to promote daily reading and to build excitement for our students to become life-long readers. The goal of the Reading Project is to increase reading motivation and to encourage students to read every day during the month of March. Our project kick-off is Tuesday, March 2, 2021, which is Read Across America Day (which is also Dr. Seuss' birthday). We will celebrate all week long with SPIRIT DAYS, starting March 1. Students are encouraged to read daily and will complete a Reading Oath for the month of March. At the end of the month, one lucky student in each grade level (1st - 5th) will receive a Kindle, donated by the Lion's Club. All students will be entered in the drawing and have an opportunity to win.
Women's History Month

Two Outstanding Opportunities to Access Support for our Children
Road To Wellnessevidentce-based psychoeductaion groups (RTW) are designed for adolescents experiencing anxiety, stress, depression, anger, sleep disorders, fatigue, guilt, or other feelings affecting their health and wellbeing. Participants build key coping skills, which help them more deeply explore their patterns of negative thinking that lead to self-destructive actions and subsequently develop more beneficial solutions and outcomes.
Camp Cope-A-Lot is an evidence-based 12-module online program for use with children suffering from anxiety. The computer program provides cognitive behavioral therapy techniques (based on the Evidence-Based Coping Cat treatment) for Elementary School age children experiencing anxiety and stress. Clinical facilitators will guide students through 6 group sessions and offer another 6 groups that students can advance through at their own pace.
ELPAC Testing, March 15-19
ELPAC stands for the English Language Proficiency Assessment for California, and this test determines English proficiency. All English Learners will take this assessment. To help prepare our students, it is important to get a good night's rest of 8 hours or more, eat a healthy meal before coming to school, and arrive on time.
