Skyland Teachers Receive Grants
Congratulations to the following teachers who were recently awarded a Greater Greer Education Foundation Grant: Patricia Smiley, speech teacher; Angie Bryant, art teacher; and Carol Godfrey, music teacher.
FIRST IN MATH
Skyland is piloting a new online math program called First in Math. This program is an exciting way to allow students to work at their own pace while mastering math skills. Students have been introduced to this program at school and we want to encourage them to work in it at home as well. There is a link on Skyland's website (under Student Links) or you can access it at www.firstinmath.com. This is completely optional, but we hope that with your encouragement, students will find it a fun way to sharpen their math skills! Students can earn virtual stickers and can even become the player of the day at Skyland and wear a special lanyard! In addition, the top five players of the school will be announced on SETV each Friday. Your child has been given a User ID and Password to use on this program. If your child does not have access to the internet at home, please let his/her teacher know so that we can provide opportunities here for access.

Parent Portal passwords are now available in the front office. If you have already set up a Parent Portal, you do not need this password! To obtain this password, a parent or legal guardian must come to the front office with a picture ID. We highly recommend you create Parent Portal for your children as this is a great way to keep up with lunch balances, attendance, and grades. You can also change name, address, and phone number information on this site. All Parent Portals can be consolidated into one account. If you have a Parent Portal but have forgotten your password/user name, you will need to bring your ID to the front office. Thank you.
