  • Skyline Students discuss creation of their mural

    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.
