Skyridge Admin Team
For the third consecutive year, Skyridge is proud to announce that we are a recipient of the Washington State Achievement Award. This year we are recognized for overall excellence and an additional recognition in the area of science. When considering that one of the criteria measures our improvement from last year’s already impressive results, this is truly a remarkable accomplishment. The Washington Achievement Award is a joint venture of the Washington State Board of Education and the Officce of Superintendent of Public Instruction and is awarded to the top five percent of schools as measured by the Washington Achievement index.
Thank you to our Camas Educational Foundation for providing Skyridge with a $1,500 mini-grant! Congratulations to Ms. Gayle Cooper and our students as they move forward in creating a Native Garden for us to enjoy. This project will be completed in connection with our 7th grade Washington State history curriculum. Students will research native plants which Lewis and Clark identified in their journals and then plan, design and create a garden of native plants for our school. This project will be planned and implemented through various stages in conjuction with Clark County and Washington State agencies. The process will include having math students establish the design and measurements by applying their geometry skills, having our student body vote on the best design, and science classes grow the plants and work on irrigation, the soil and fertilizer balance, as well as sun and shade plant needs. Studying the types of native plants to Washington and following the journey of Lewis and Clark will enrich the 7th grade studies of Washington State history and provide an on-going opportunity for all to enjoy.
