    Principal’s Corner

    Skyline Families,

    Happy Friday. I am so excited to attend my first Skyline K-8 Auction tomorrow night. We are so lucky to have such an amazing parent group and community who provide so much support to our students, teachers, and school. With our proposed cuts for the 2018-19 school year, I am extremely grateful. Money raised helps provide additional teachers, educational assistants, field trips, assemblies, technology, etc. We appreciate all of you a ton. We could not do what we do without your support.

    If you can volunteer at the auction, please sign up here

    Please make sure and read Mrs. Gervais’ Counselor Corner so you know our school’s plan for next Wednesday to honor the lives lost in Parkland, Florida. Thank you to Mrs. Gervais and Mrs. Dunn.

    In addition to our monthly fire drill, the required emergency drill for the month of March is the Lockdown Drill. Lockdown is used when there is imminent danger either inside the school or very near your school. When a lockdown is initiated, everyone in the building immediately gets to safety. I will send an email home the day of the drill but wanted to give you a heads up this drill will be practiced. At our staff meeting on Tuesday, I asked staff to begin having age-appropriate conversations with their classes after drills to capture the teachable moment.

    Have a great weekend!

    BG Aguirre

  • New Mural for Skyline

    For their 6th Grade Community Service Project, Skyline students, with the help of parents, teachers and the community, created an amazing new mural for their gymnasium. The project stems from the IB (International Baccalaureate) requirement that all middle school students participate in community service. Watch Skyline students and staff talk about how this creative project taught them collaboration, communication and organization skills.
  • Welcome to Skyline School!

  •  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!

    On Wednesday, students across the nation chose to speak out on the issue of school safety. In many school communities, students observed a moment of silence and walked out of class to give voice to their thoughts and feelings. We should all listen.The horrific mass shootings that have taken student lives in recent years have provoked an incredibly important dialogue and created a valuable “teachable moment” for all of us.
