Calling all Skyline students!
Submit your masterpiece to the third edition of Skyline’s award-winning literary magazine Teen Spirit, a publication of the Skyline Writing Center. Teen Spirit has again been named the best high school literary publication in the state for 2014. This required us to be rated superior by every judge in every category for the last two years. It is extremely rare for publications to win back-to-back. You can submit short stories, poetry, comics, photographs, doodles, videos, song lyrics… almost anything! And the best part is, you can submit as many works of art as you want! Send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. This year’s theme is Choose Your Own Adventure, so we’re looking for submissions that reflect on adventures,travel stories, daring feats, or difficult decisions you’ve had to make, and anything else that you think matches our theme. Please include your name, grade level, and title of your piece. The submission deadline is Friday, January 23, 2015.
We’d like to remind students who drive to school that you must purchase a Skyline Student Parking Pass from Ms. Brewer in the Main Office. Students may only park in the Student Lot. Students' cars found parked in the Staff Lot or the Visitors Lot will be towed at the owner’s expense.
This is a reminder that Skyline is a closed campus and students are not permitted to leave campus during lunches. Please note that any student who leaves campus is subject to disciplinary action.
Student Arrivals and Departures
Students: please remember that you must be dropped off and picked up at the Student Entrance before and after school each day. No drop-offs or pick-ups are allowed at the Visitors’ Entrance or the Bus Stops. Please note that students who arrive late to school should proceed directly to class as we are no longer issuing hall passes for late arrivals.
