    Principal’s Corner

    Skyline Families,

    Happy Friday. Please do not forget Monday is Presidents’ Day and there is no school.  Wednesday, February 21, is a late start day with school beginning at 10:45 am.

    This week our 7th graders participated in The 7GCTE - 7th Grade Career Tech Exploration that was developed to establish a middle-grade system for career readiness and to build and expand awareness of college and career opportunities among 7th graders and their families. Students practiced skills that are critical to success in high-demand, high-wage careers and learned about the CTE programs of study available to them in fields such as engineering, manufacturing, information technology, healthcare, design and much more.

    Designed to inspire and embolden middle school students, the 7GCTE is a new Portland Public Schools program to provide all PPS 7th graders with an annual and immersive hands-on learning experience. The program is delivered over eight months during the school year, from October – May. Learning experiences are nine-hours long for three consecutive days (10AM - 1PM daily) and students are transported to off-site locations that include college campuses and corporate headquarters. The 7GCTE is an opportunity for students to develop design thinking skills while supporting confidence, curiosity and self-directed problem-solving. PPS contracts with multiple providers of hands-on learning experiences to deliver the program. Thank you PPS for this awesome experience for our 7th graders.

    Auction tickets are on sale. Ton of fun is headed our way on March 10th at the Skyline K-8 Auction beginning at 4:30 p.m. at the Rock Creek Country Club. I will be there and look forward to spending time with all of you.

    Have a great weekend!

  • Lincoln Drama Opens Tony Award-Winning Musical "Into the Woods" March 1 at 7:30p


    How far would you go to make your wish come true?  Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (of beanstalk fame), and a baker and his wife find out when they take a journey into the woods. It’s a magical, bewildering place full of witches, wolves, giants and mysterious strangers, where familiar fairy tales get tangled up together. Wishes come true here, but at a price. Even storybook characters must face the music—of which there is plenty—in Sondheim and Lapine’s irreverent Tony Award–winner.

  • 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!  We are a K-8 International Baccalaureate school settled on the top of the hills overlooking Portland and the Willamette Valley.  Our school is strongly supported by our parents and community.  We average over 4000 volunteer hours a year!

  •  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!

    Interim Superintendent
