News

August Greetings Skyview Middle School families,

Below are a few items/updates:

  • Parent Portal and Updating Household Information
    • We are pleased to inform you of the Self-Service tools now available for parents. You now have the ability to update your household phone number, household address, cell phone, work phone and email addresses through the Parent Portal. This information will be applied to all of your students enrolled in ISD 622 schools. Simply click on the Household Information or Family Members sections to update your information. You will be contacted if more information is needed. 
    • NOTE:  As the Portal is not used by the elementary schools, parents of elementary students who do not also have children in a middle or high school should notify their school directly with any of these changes.
    • If you have forgotten your password, please click the 'Forgot Your Password' link below, click on the link that appears and enter your e-mail address at the bottom to get your username and password e-mailed to you.  
    • Parent Portal – Can be accessed at:  http://www.isd622.org//site/Default.aspx?PageID=488
  • Parent Volunteer Coordinator Position Still Available            
  • Hope Church ServFest
    • ServFest is Coming! What is ServFest? It’s a day when we serve our local community by doing projects that the schools need done but don’t have the resources to do. On the morning of Saturday, August 22 we will be cleaning up a large amount of landscaping at Skyview Middle School, as well as painting, building bookshelves, and more. We need your help, please sign up today by contacting Buddy Spinks at 651-269.3267 or hcspinks@gmail.com.
  • Intergenerational artist celebration – You are invited to help celebrate
    • A public reception will be held on August 4th, 2015, at Skyview, beginning at 5:00 p.m.  
    • Guided by Public Artist, Anne Krocak, teams of two, one senior team from Oak Meadows and one student team from Skyview Middle School, are creating a number personal and public art pieces to be permanently displayed at Oak Meadows and Skyview. The theme is “ducks” and has been named this after a duck that hatches her eggs in the courtyard at Skyview each year.
    • One senior is paired with one student.  They then work together to create pieces.  This week they drew, painted with watercolor and acrylic and molded clay…all into ducks.  Next week they will be working with cement and mosaic.  These cement ducks will then be placed in the courtyard and garden at Skyview and Oak Meadows.

 URGENT - 7th Grade Required Immunizations

Minnesota immunization law requires that by 7th grade, children receive additional immunizations. These include tetanus/diphtheria with acellular pertussis (Tdap), a meningococcal immunization, an additional Varicella immunization and possibly MMR and/or Hepatitis B series.

Prior to 7th grade your child will need:

• Tdap vaccination
• 2 Varicella vaccinations (if not given previously or physician documentation of chicken pox disease)
• 3 Hepatitis B vaccinations (if not given previously)
• 2 MMR vaccinations (if not given previously)
• Meningococcal vaccination

Immunizations can be obtained by your primary health care provider.  Once your child has received his or her immunizations, please bring an updated immunization record to school. Seventh grade Skyview Middle School students will not be allowed to receive their schedules without the necessary immunization documentation. In addition, students without the required immunization documentation will not be allowed to attend school. No student is required to have an immunization which is contrary to the conscientiously held beliefs of his/her parent or guardian. To receive this exemption, a parent or legal guardian must complete, sign and have notarized a conscientious objector form. If you need a copy of this form, please contact the building nurse.



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
