If you have not been notified, check with your child's teacher for the testing date for your child's class.
Congratulations to Skyland Students, Parents, Business Partners, Teachers, and Administrators!
State report cards are in...and Skyland scored EXCELLENT! We would like to express our gratitude to everyone that is an integral part of our Skyland team. Building a school of excellence requires teamwork. Skyland continues to provide quality education in "a place where children flourish!"
In case of inclement weather, be sure to listen to local radio or television stations for announcements of school delays or closings. In case of two hour delays, students should report to school no earlier than 9:15 a.m.
Why are Common Core Standards Important?
Teachers and students at Skyland are gearing up for the transition to Common Core State Standards. South Carolina chose to join other states in developing these standards for English language arts and mathematics. Common Core State Standards are part of the goals and expectations our state has adopted for all other subject areas, like science, social studies and fine arts. Learn why Common Core State Standards are so important by watching this short video! http://vimeo.com/51933492

No Cell Phone Zone
You may have noticed the No Cell Phone Zone signs posted in the carpool lines recently and you might be asking yourself, "What's the harm in talking on a cell phone in a school zone?" Safe Kids Upstate, a program dedicated to reducing the unintentional injury of children under the age of 14, would like for you to be aware of the risk of talking on your cell phone while driving.
