Incoming 6th Grade Families Gather for BBQ in Park

More than 20 incoming Skinner 6th graders and their families from Edison and Polarlis @ Ebert elementary schools gathered together on Monday for a cookout at Rocky Mountain Lake Park – a great way to usher in the beginning of summer and also to celebrate going to Skinner next year.

Principal Michelle Koyama was on hand, along with two Skinner teachers, Chris Martin (6thgrade Science) and Brad Smith ( 7th grade Math). Kids mingled with other future classmates, and parents got a chance to connect and ask Skinner staff about the daily schedule, Honors classes, sports and extracurricular activities.

“It was really fun and I felt that I was going to know a lot of people when I go to Skinner next year,” said Avery Ahern, an incoming 6th grader.

Maya Stone, another new student agreed, “It was fun because I got to meet other people that are going to Skinner next year kids that will likely be in my classes.”

“I loved the evening – it was a warm, and inviting group of kids and parents, and I thought the kids clicked immediately,” said parent Shannon McKinney. “I had a chance to talk to several teachers and was very impressed by their passion and commitment.”

After this get-together, these families are even more convinced that Skinner is a great choice for their kids and the neighborhood.
