WELCOME 6th Grade Families! Important Info!!

Welcome to Skinner!

The Skinner Faculty would like to welcome you to the 2016-17 school year!  Every Sunday evening we send a weekly dialer and email to inform you about the events of the week. Below is some information to get you started on the right foot.

Morning Drop Off

The First TWO days of school for 6th grade, students will enter and exit through the main front doors.  Starting Wednesday, August 24th the permanent drop off location is the West Side of the building on King Street.  6th grade students enter and exit the West doors starting Wednesday. King Street is very narrow. Please do not double park on King Street and block traffic. If you need to park and walk your child to the West doors, please find a legal parking spot nearby.

Breakfast

Breakfast is free to all of our students and begins at 7:10am.  The cafeteria can be accessed in the morning by entering the back northwest door.  If your student rides the bus to school, this is the same location where the bus drops off in the morning.

Start Time

The first bell rings at 7:25am and that is the same time students will enter the building, including the first day of school.  Supervision begins at 7:10am each morning, which means we have staff on morning duty in the front, west side, back, and cafeteria areas of the building.

6th grade Parent Orientation

Please join us Tuesday evening, August 23 from 6-7 pm in the Skinner Auditorium. Administration will give you some important information about transitioning as a middle school parent.  This evening will be different from Back to School Night and we strongly encourage all new to Skinner parents/guardians to attend. Children are also welcomed to attend.

“I am Eleven” screening for Students and Parents

Join us Wednesday evening from 6-8pm in the Auditorium for a viewing of the documentary “I Am Eleven”.  PTO purchased this video as a community event opportunity for our families transitioning to middle school.  This documentary shows how being eleven in different parts of the world, has universal themes.

The Skinner Cheerleaders will be selling popcorn and water bottles this evening.

Back to School Potluck BBQ
