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!
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!
