    Principal’s Corner

    Skyline Families,

    This week was another awesome week, and according to many students, the weather is back to normal.  Please make sure your children are dressed for the weather on these cold and rainy days!  Also, please make sure your child has their lunch number memorized if they eat hot lunch.  This helps move the lunch line along during lunch.

    Thank you to those of you who attended the PTA meeting last night.  It is important for me to understand the needs of our families and community to work together and always do what is best for students.  Serving as the liaison between the PTA and staff is an important part of my job.  Thank you for being so supportive and welcoming me into the Skyline community.

    If you did not sign up for our upcoming conferences on November 8th and 9th at Back to School Night, please do so.  For grades K-5 contact your child’s classroom teacher; for grades 6-8 sign up online at http://skylinepdx.weebly.com/. My goal is to have 100% of our families attend conferences.  This is the perfect opportunity to meet with your child’s teachers, hear all of the amazing things they are learning about at school and touch base on potential areas for improvement. 

    In an effort to improve safety and streamline our transportation plan for students, the office and the classroom teachers in grades K-5 need to know the weekly plan for your child’s transportation after school.  When there is a change, an email needs to be sent to the Skyline Office skylineoffice@pps.net  and the K-5 classroom teacher at the beginning of the day, or send it in writing with your child.  It is very hard to manage dismissal when we get requests late in the day.  We need to ensure everyone is safe, on the right bus and going home with the right people.  We understand in the event of an emergency this may change, but we want to get in the daily habit of communicating before the day starts.

    I want to make sure you are all aware of the Synergy ParentVUE app, and if you did not receive this information in your Back to School Packet, please contact the office.  ParentVUE provides information in six languages and enables mobile communication for families, including progress reports and report cards.  Here is a link to the  https://www.pps.net/Page/234

    Have a great weekend!  All the best!

Principal's Message

  •  Announcing Skyline’s new principal BG Aguirre

    BG Aguirre

    June 2017

    Dear Skyline School Community, It is with great pleasure that I announce BG Aguirre as the new principal for Skyline School. BG is currently the principal at St. Helens High School, a position she has held since 2013. She served as assistant principal for five years prior to taking over as principal.

    BG earned her Bachelor’s degree in sociology and Spanish from Oregon State University, her Masters of Arts in teaching from Concordia University and her administrator license from Portland State University. Following her graduation from Concordia, BG worked as an elementary school teacher in the Beaverton School District, first at Vose Elementary for five years, then Kinnaman Elementary for three years. She spent a year in the Lincoln County School District in Newport, before moving to the St. Helens School District to serve as assistant principal and principal for St. Helens High School in 2008.

    BG has proven herself to be an effective school leader and is looking forward to leading Skyline for years to come. She has received International Baccalaureate MYP Level 1 training and IB Administration Level 2 training. BG is also well-versed in successfully running an AVID school. While at St. Helens, BG was an AVID district director, an AVID principal, attended multiple AVID strand trainings and successfully implemented AVID school-wide.

    Throughout her time in both the St. Helens and Beaverton School Districts, BG has gone above and beyond her stated duties to ensure that her community thrives. She is a fluent Spanish speaker and is an advocate for all students. She has had great success writing grants and securing funding for intervention programs, professional development and students in need. She deeply values collaboration between teachers, families and administrative staff to ensure the success of the school.

    BG is a dedicated wife and mom of three children ages 3, 5 and 7. In her free time, she loves watching her children participate in extra-curricular activities and spending time as a family. BG enjoys reading, playing golf and is an avid runner. BG tells me she is absolutely overjoyed to be back in elementary and to have the opportunity to work in her community. Please join me in congratulating BG in her new assignment as the principal for Skyline School!
