It's not too early to think about next school year!

While this year is wrapping up, Skyline PTSA is already making plans for next year. One program that will be up and running is our Ambassador Program, which is a way to connect new families to families who have more time and experience at Skyline and living in our area. Interested in how you can help? Please contact Diane McKenna.

We will have other opportunities to volunteer including Staff Appreciation Committee or one of our Executive Board positions including PTSA President, Treasurer, and VP of Communications. Please email president@skylineptsa.org if you'd like more information.
