Skyridge students and staff try to make every day “Earth Day!” Since 2007, the Skyridge Green Schools program has continued to expand under the dedication and strong encouragement of Ann Hofmann, our technology teacher and ASB Advisor. From small beginnings, the effort at Skyridge has grown to become one of the premier programs in Clark County. To learn more, read the April 16, 2013, edition of The Post Record.
Skyridge was selected by the Veterans of Foreign Wars and Ladies Auxiliary to receive a POW/MIA Flag to display in honor and recognition of our Prisoners of War soldiers and those who are Missing In Action. Judy Graves of the Ladies Auxiliary of Veterans of Foreign Wars and Ray Loney of the Veterans of Foreign Wars presented the flag to us recently during a live broadcast of our Skyridge Network News.
Pictured above is a photo recently received from the 142nd Fighter Wing Portland Air National Guard which shows members holding a banner sent to them from Skyridge with notes of thanks and appreciation shared by our students. Thank you to all of our past and present veterans! We appreciate ALL that you do to protect us and our freedom each day!
The Camas School District offers a Pre-Advanced Placement (Pre-AP) program for Language Arts and Social Studies (LA/SS) and Advanced Math at the middle-school level. Both programs reflect high academic expectations and are available for sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students. Click the link below to read more and complete the interest form.
This major grant has been awarded by our Camas Educational Foundation to John Condon of Skyridge and Mistalyn Batten of Liberty and made possible through a 50/50 partnership between CEF and our Camas School District technology department. Each teacher will receive a syncing cart with 35 ipad minis and one Macbook. The lab will enable students to use the equipment for a variety of learning applications as well as take assessments and quizzes and receive immediate feedback. Thank you to our Camas Educational Foundation and supportive community patrons!
