This is a reminder that Wednesday and Thursday this week are scheduled late starts for Skyridge Middle School. Students should arrive at bus stops 2 hours and 15 minutes later than their regularly scheduled time. All classes begin at 10:15 AM. Late starts allow teachers the time to collaborate in Professional Learning Communities. Thank you and have a great day.
This is a reminder that there is no school on Friday, October 10. This day is set aside as an Inservice Day for teachers. This is also the last day of the first term. Please check Skyward for any missing assignments for your student and turn in by the end of the school day on Thursday, October 9.
The Healthy Youth Survey (HYS) is a collaborative effort of the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, the Department of Health, the Department of Social and Health Service’s Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery, the Department of Commerce, and the Liquor Control Board.
The survey provides important information about youth in Washington. County prevention coordinators, community mobilization coalitions, community public health and safety networks, and others use this information to guide policy and programs that serve youth. The information from the Healthy Youth Survey can be used to identify trends in the patterns of behavior over time. In October 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, and 2012, students in grades 6, 8, 10, and 12 answered questions about safety and violence, physical activity and diet, alcohol, tobacco and other drug use, and related risk and protective factors.
The Camas School District will administer the Healthy Youth Survey to sixth, eighth, tenth, and twelfth grade students during the week of October 13-17, 2014. This year, the HYS will include optional questions regarding sexual behaviors, orientation, and abuse. Information about the enhanced survey can be found here. Additionally, the HYS Question and Answer Fact Sheet found here is very informative.
The district uses the data collected from the survey to make informed decisions around safety and student growth. Parents who wish to opt-out of participation of this survey may do so by contacting your student’s school office. If you have questions, please contact Glenn Hartman, Intervention Specialist, at 360-335-3000 ext. 78407.
Conducted nationwide, this VFW sponsored youth essay competition gives students an opportunity to write essays expressing their views on democracy. The top 46 national winners all receive at least $500. The first-place national award is $5,000 and an all-expense paid trip to Washington D.C. for the winner and a parent or guardian. Completed entries must be submitted to the school by October 31.
Please reserve Tuesday, October 7, 6:30 – 8:00 PM, for our Skyridge 7th and 8th Grade Parent Curriculum Evening. Our teachers are looking forward to sharing with you what our Skyhawks will be learning and experiencing this year. There will be a planned schedule, so we encourage you to set aside the full 1 ½ hours to join us here at Skyridge. Due to limited space, this is a parent only event and carpooling is encouraged.
This is a reminder that Wednesday and Thursday this week are our first scheduled late starts for Skyridge Middle School. Students should arrive at bus stops 2 hours and fifteen minutes later than their regularly scheduled time. All classes begin at 10:15 AM. Late starts allow teachers the time to collaborate in Professional Learning Communities. Thank you and have a great day.
8th Grade Mt. St. Helens field trips are scheduled. Please return student permission forms and field trip fee ($17) as soon as possible.
