Holiday Giving Drive

Our Holiday Giving Drive was a complete success!  With help from parents, friends, and students we were able to assemble wishlist items for 45 Skinner students in need. Donations included books, clothing, toys and other large ticket items like chromebooks and Kindles!  Students were so happy to receive these gifts.  Thank you to all who donated! 

Walkathon 2019

The annual Walkathon was held on September 26th.  The students enjoyed a full day of walking, biking, dancing to a DJ and using a bounce house.  They were especially pleased to use the new Whitney Young track.  We are so grateful to have raised over $80,000 from this effort.  These funds will be used to continue outfitting the classrooms in the annex with new projectors as well as for teacher and school wishlist items. Thank you to all students, parents, teachers and staff who helped reach this goal!  

The 5 classrooms  that raised the most money have earned an ice cream party as well as $500 to spend on classroom items. The classrooms that raised the most money are:

Mrs. Priola

Mrs. DeJulio

Mr. Scheaff

Mrs. Haddad

Mrs. Martin

This prize has also been extended to an additional 5 classrooms.  Those classrooms are: 

Mrs. Irvin

Mrs. Oluewu
