Focus on 2020 Vision
The end of the 2019-2020 school year is coming to a close and although it isn’t what any of us anticipated, there are a number of fabulous things to celebrate.
First and foremost, our determined Class of 2020. They had some unique challenges with their final quarter of school, but they handled it well, and accomplished their goals! Well done seniors! The town celebrated our original graduation date, Saturday, May 16th, with a parade for our seniors. Thanks to everybody who participated and helped to make this possible. Parents, specifically Sandra Almeida, and community members rallied together to make this happen.
Our seniors were also showcased on banners outside of the school, coordinated by Katrina Ruggles. BOE member Lloyd Garcia, the Ruggles family including Cael, Cayden and Katrina, and Damian Casanova helped to get the banners up and cleaned out the area around the fence so that everything looked great!
Mr. Schoenfelder has been working hard on senior pages and took some amazing photos for our graduates. He is always dependable in making sure our events are documented through pictures.
Thanks to Julio Paez, our tech director, for getting the students’ names scrolling on our electronic billboard in front of the building. Everybody is working hard to make our Class of 2020 feel special. There are some more exciting things planned… and we are looking forward to our big graduation ceremony on August 1st!
Staff has continued to work hard by providing innovative learning activities for our students.
Staff has continued to plan and deliver innovative learning experiences for our students. From Ms. Donaldson's Zoom lessons to Joe Martinez and Tim Sanchez working hard to keep us healthy and active.
Ms. Alfson’s culinary arts class put together meals that were served hot for their families. Third grade teachers collaborated via Zoom and Kindergarteners had a hat day!
Our staff has done an amazing job following through with our core belief- Everyone must be committed to excellence in all they do, every day. That commitment to excellence has been demonstrated by students and staff throughout this remote learning experience.
This will be our last official week of school. We have a couple more end of the year activities planned. Skoglund Middle School will be recognizing our 8th graders through a virtual continuation ceremony on Wednesday evening @ 6:00 pm. Kindergarteners will be recognized for their accomplishments as well.
Have a safe, healthy and restful summer vacation. You all deserve it. Looking forward to being back together in the fall. Keep staying #VikingStrong
