Seven Secrets for Great College Essays

Free Workshop: Seniors, Juniors and Parents 

Monday, March 11th, 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Skyline High School, Room 2402

Writing an effective college essay is not the same as writing a school paper. It has a different audience, serves a different purpose, and has a different set of secrets for what works and doesn’t work. Please join us on Monday, March 11th at 6:00pm at Skyline High School (Room 2402) for this fun, interactive workshop where you will discover what a great college essay is and isn't, at least one topic idea for your essay, a pathway to writing your essay, and for parents and mentors, tools and tips to give the best support and feedback to students.   

Email collegereadiness@skylineptsa.org for more details and to RSVP.

Service Learning Forms Collection

All students at Skyline are encouraged to participate in this optional PTSA program to build up their volunteer hours, with Freshmen eligible to start earning volunteer hours after 8th grade promotion. In order to earn the service learning cord at graduation, students must submit records of having volunteered at least 100 hours over the course of their four years of high school.

Our next in-person collection dates are coming up on March 7th (Thursday) and April 5th (Friday) in the SHS commons area (by the main doors) during both A and B lunches. Outside of this time, students are welcome to leave completed forms in the PTSA drawer in the College & Career Center, which will be collected occasionally between in-person pickups. Students are advised to keep copies of all forms submitted as backup.  Seniors - be sure to turn in your completed forms before end of March in order to receive service cords. 

Email servicelearning@skylineptsa.org with questions.  Thank you, Skyline parents, for joining the PTSA! Your donations help fund this and other PTSA programs that support Skyline students and staff.
