Skyline Ranch Celebrates AIMS



Friday April 11, 2014 marked the end of another week of AIMS and SAT10 testing.  Skyline Ranch K-8 students in grades two through eight celebrated the end of testing week by releasing nearly 700 balloons.  Students received prizes throughout the week for being in attendance; on Friday Skyline Ranch K-8 gave away basketballs and water bottles donated from the Phoenix Suns, school t-shirts, Bulldog Dog Tags, and three lucky students with perfect attendance for the week received a 7” RCA tablet.  Principal Toby Haugen said, “Our students work hard all year long.  During testing week especially, they put a lot of pressure on themselves to do well.   Our students, parents, and teachers all know how great Skyline Ranch K-8 is; how we perform on the test is our way of showing the county and the rest of Arizona the great things that are happening at our school.  Our students have really stepped up this year and we wanted do something fun for them at the end of long week.  It’s GREAT to be a Bulldog!”

Florence K-8 Hosts an interactive Heart Dissection Lesson

On Friday April 4th Florence K-8 6th Grade teacher Erin Lewis’s science students witnessed an interactive presentation presented by the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.  The presentation described the circulatory system and was highlighted by the dissection of a sheep’s heart.  The presenter indicated that using an animal heart for this demonstration is very effective given the fact that they are very close anatomically to the human heart.  This presentation was funded by a grant from the Salt River Project (SRP).
