Announcements for 09-19-14
From the Desk of Principal McElmeel
The 2014 Skyline Homecoming is finally here! We’re on a special bell schedule today to accommodate the pep rally. Classes are 60 minutes each, and the order of classes is 1st, 2nd, and then 4th, 3rd and 5th. When excused from 5th hour students will go to the Main Gym for the pep rally. Fall VARSITY athletes will go to the Aux Gym. Our Homecoming Parade will be this evening at 5:30 pm, and you don’t want to miss out! We’re the only school in Ann Arbor who has a homecoming parade, and it keeps getting bigger and better each year! After the parade there will be food vendors onsite, and we’ll have giveaways for all kids who are admitted to the game before the 7:00 pm kickoff. Your 2014 King and Queen will be announced at Half-time. Today is the very last day for $27 dance tickets. Tomorrow at the dance they will be $32. All Skyline students and guests must have ID to get into the dance. The dance is from 8:00 pm-11:00 pm, and doors close at 9:30 pm. We’d like this to be a fun, exciting and safe weekend for all. Good luck to our Skyline Football team tonight as they take on Monroe at 7:00 pm! It’s time for all that hard work to pay off. GO EAGLES!
