    Attention students and staff

    In Skytime you heard about a new program starting to assist in making sure all students are receiving adequate nutrition each day. Studies from the American Psychological Association reveal that hunger can cause depression, anxiety, and withdrawal, which can disrupt a child’s focus on education.   In 2011, it was reported that 1 in 6 children in Washtenaw County were “food insecure”.  We are starting a food pantry here at Skyline for classmates in need.  This includes everyone since it could even benefit those who forgot to bring money or lunch to school.
    Each month we are asking students and staff in a different SLC to bring in non-perishable food donations to your Skytime and Sky12.   Those donations will then be delivered to Ms. Heather Jackson in A212 in the main office.  If you prefer to donate money it will be used to buy fresh fruit or vegetables.  
    In March the Integrity SLC will donate, April is Diversity, May is Equality and June is Academic Innovation.  
    If you have any questions please contact Ms. Heather Jackson or Mrs Meredith Giltner.
