Supplies at Skyview School of STEM

Dear Future Preschool through 5th grade Families,

As we think about the upcoming school year, we continually want to be reflective of our practice and strive to prepare our students to be knowledgeable and inquiring individuals that contribute to our world and desire to be lifelong learners. In order to meet our goals, it is critical that our students collaborate, think deeply, communicate, problem solve, create, innovate, and think analytically. In our ever-changing world, it is imperative that we afford our students access to materials and tools to meet their needs. Sometimes these are different from the traditional school supplies of pencil and paper.

As you know, in the past, each grade level has had a school supply list. We would like to ask that instead of purchasing school supplies for your child for the upcoming school year, you make a monetary donation to Skyview School of STEM. We have researched the cost of supplies and found that $40 per student is the average amount that families spend. With your donation we will cover the cost of school supplies (which we will buy in bulk), and purchase & repair of technology tools to support student achievement at Skyview. In addition to providing supplies for students, the money will be spent on ways to support technology integration and on-line subscriptions (such as Scholastic, Newsela, Powtoons, Glogster, WeVideo, National Geographic, Storyworks and Voki).

When students return to school in August, we ask that you contribute $40 to our school; checks need to be made payable to Skyview School of STEM.
