Two Communication Tools for You

Skyview Middle School relies heavily on Parent Portal and our daily E-News to communicate to families.  E-News is our daily list-serv driven emails that update families about upcoming events.  Parent Portal is our way of granting parent access to teachers’ grade books.  If you have not already done so, please consider exploring Parent Portal and E-News to be kept up-to-date on things happening at Skyview Middle School.

After-School Supervision 
 

Students are not allowed to "hang out" after school unless they are supervised by staff or are with a parent or guardian.  Although we understand and appreciate friends wanting to support their friends who may be participating in an activity, unfortunately we are not able to supervise students staying after in these areas.   

  


 

Intra-District Transfers

 
Intra-district Transfers are being granted, at most district buildings, for students in grades K-12 living within the boundaries of District 622 who wish to attend a school other than the one they are assigned based on attendance boundaries.
 
Intra-district transfer requests for the 2014-2015 school year can be submitted beginning Monday, Dec. 2, 2013. All requests will be reviewed according to the process listed below after Friday, April 4, 2014. Families submitting requests by April 4, 2014 will be notified in writing of the status by May 2, 2014. The Director of Student Services may approve exceptions at other times if extenuating circumstances exist.

 

Text Message Notification and Alerts

 

In an attempt to better communicate with families regarding changes in the athletic schedules, we are going to be using Remind101 to send text messages to families regarding changes in after school game or practice schedules.

Students take top prizes in essay contest

Three District 622 eighth graders are the winners of the City of Maplewood’s Human Rights Commission Essay contest.

Nathaniel Kong, an eighth grader at Maplewood Middle School earned First Place for his essay and will be entered into the statewide essay contest. Two eighth graders at Skyview Middle School also placed in the Top 3. Jaitel Vang earned second place, and Julian Yang earned third place.

Students who chose to enter the contest had to answer the following questions: “Prejudice and stereo-types affect the way we perceive and interact with each other, even when we don’t realize it. How do stereotypes affect our society and how do they damage human rights?”

The essays were judged based on originality, creativity and composition.

All three of the students will be invited to present their essays at the Dec. 10 Human Rights Commission meeting.


 

Skyview Middle School Choir to Attend "Clouds" Event

 When the choir director at Skyview Middle School in Oakdale heard about plans for a gigantic "Clouds" sing-along at the Mall of America, she registered right away.

Choir director Melanie Tlusty said she decided to take 100 sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders and their family members to honor the late singer-songwriter Zach Sobiech and show support for his family.

 
 

We Scare Hunger 

This Halloween, Skyview Middle School students trick-or-treated for an unlikely kind of “treat”—non-perishable food items for a local food bank.

Welcome

Welcome to Skyview Middle School, home of the Skyhawks. I am honored to be the principal of Skyview Middle School. We have an excellent educational program with outstanding students, staff and parents. Our goal is to work with all staff and parents to provide ALL students with a quality education that prepares them to be College and Career Ready. Research shows that students excel when parents are involved in their child’s education. We hope to develop a partnership with you that will empower your child to reach their full potential and make a positive contribution to society.

As our education partners, we ask all parents to insure that their students bring their Academic Binders, completed homework and other classroom materials as required by their teachers. We also recommend that you review your child’s progress via Parent Portal and discuss your student’s assignments and classroom performance on a regular basis. You may also call the school anytime to talk with a teacher or counselor to address any student concern. We hope that this process enhances the communication between Skyview Middle School and home.

With all of us working together, your student will surely SOAR with Pride.

Sincerely,

Mr. Joe Slavin, Principal
