The Bulldogs are gearing up for another great school year! School starts on Monday, July 21 at 8:15 a.m. Our bulldog staff did an amazing job raising the bar last year. We are going to build upon our success this year. The Arizona Department of Education has given us our preliminary letter grade. Although I can't share the specific details of our school grade until August 4th, I will tell you that I am extremely proud of the work our staff did, and most importantly the effort and hard work our students put in to their academics and behaviors. The teachers and students of Skyline Ranch K-8 came together and made the commitment to improve the culture of this school. That commitment had a huge impact on the academic performance of the students!
As we continue to raise the expectation for our school, we have embraced a new mission: "Ensure that ALL kids get the extra time and support needed to achieve at a high level." We have developed systems to more meticulously monitor student progress and achievement. We will quickly identify students who are struggling and make sure they receive the support they need to stay on track with their peers. Our mission is clear; the teachers of Skyline Ranch K-8 have made a commitment to complete that mission. We will work as collaborative teams and we will take responsibility for every child, not just the ones directly assigned to our classrooms. So what does that mean to you as a parent? Basically, we are approaching your child's education in a similar fashion to the way that you handle your child's health. If general over the counter medications aren't successful then you take your child to see a doctor. If the condition is more specialized then the child is seen by a doctor with that specialty. We will do the same thing at Skyline Ranch. Many educational issues can be remedied by the classroom teacher. Sometimes a child needs someone with a little more expertise. Our commitment is to make sure a child gets the help and support from whichever teacher on our campus can best provide that support.
The parents and families of Skyline Ranch also played an important role in the cultural shift last year. I ask that you continue to support our teachers as we build upon this healthy, thriving culture and work to be the best school in San Tan Valley.
Thank you for trusting and supporting me as the leader of Skyline Ranch K-8. It’s GREAT to be a Bulldog!
