    Sky Students

    As summer approaches and we all are getting excited for this much deserved break, there are many luxury's most of us don't even think twice about... like opening the fridge and making a sandwich or raiding the cupboard for some chips.  We have many students here at Skyline who don't have that luxury at home over the summer. So please help SAS today as we collect money during lunch for help with our Skyline Food Pantry. Any amount will help, so we are able to help these students who struggle with food insecurity over the summer months.

If you haven't taken it yet, please follow the link on the neon yellow posters around the school. The web address is bit.ly/lateractivities.

     

    Varsity Softball
    Before losing to Howell in the District final, the varsity softball team beat Dexter to record the first post-season win in program history.  With the score tied 3-3 going into the 7th inning, Nyeli Kratz and Grace Yeung hit back to back doubles to score the go ahead run. Amelia Greco added a single to score Grace to make it 5-3. All that was left was for Mayah Alam to finish out the game on the mound, which she did while leaving 2 runners on base. Megan Rood had 5 fantastic catches playing center field, covering both right and left center gaps, robbing Dexter hitters of extra base hits. Madi Czajka had a triple and Gabby Toth had 2 hits. It was a great year for the Softball Eagles!
    Any girls interested in playing softball next year should see Coach Stange or email her to learn about summer practice/playing opportunities.

     

    Congratulations

    Congratulations to the Women's Track & Field Team on a strong performance at the MHSAA State Finals this past weekend.

    You know what's up? A few hundred neon yellow posters around the school!
