AMAZING GENEROSITY !!
During this thanksgiving and holiday season our Superstars will
benefit from a generous donation of $10,000 from our parents, Eric
and Marla Sedler ! The grant will support our efforts to provide more technology and enrichment experiences
for our Superstars .
We are also thankful to Forum for $5547 in funding again this
year for our web based Study Island Program in reading
and math for our second through eighth graders. Students may log on
to Studyisland.com from home to access the extensive practice which
will prepare them for ISAT exams in early March. By now your
child should have received his/her Study Island user name and
password from his/her teacher to begin working on the program. We
plan to monitor each child's participation and use of the program
Forum has purchased 4th-Step additions to our choral risers, enabling
us to better fit our growing population of Skinner Superstar
performers on the stage. Thank you to the Skinner Forum!
