Help Make The Holidays Brighter

     If you are interested in donating a gift card -- in any denomination -- to a student in need, please drop them off in the main office. Last year we were able to give gift cards to over 150 students because of your generosity. Gift cards may be dropped off in the main office or mailed to Skyview.
     This year the Foreign Language Club is partnering with Tumbleweed coordinator Nicole Sholley to supply our teen food pantry with a holiday food & hygiene drive. Please consider donating food and hygiene items. Donations will be collected outside Room 133 from December 3rd and 21st.
     Something else that is very much appreciated is new or gently used Skyview apparel. 
     Also, if you have travel-sized toiletries, feminine hygiene, and facial products that you would be interested in donating for homeless students in our district, please drop them off in room 215 or the main office. This project is ongoing throughout the school year.
     Thank you for helping our students during the holidays and throughout the year.
Yearbooks are on sale!
$60.00 through the first of January.
You can find the link on Skyview's website,
