What do we love about the students and staff at Skyview High School? They demonstrate goodwill through actions that are supportive and caring. Empowering this positive culture has been the work of associate principals Luke LeCount, Abby Davis and Becky Phillips and teacher/coordinator Meredith Wales. A schoolwide 30-minute period called Storm Time gives students an opportunity to talk about and share experiences that build core values of trust and integrity. Read the following email from a principal at Seattle’s Roosevelt High School who witnessed the positive and inclusive culture of our amazing Skyview students. #VPSamazing #RollStorm
I just wanted to send you quick positive note regarding your students who traveled to support your football team Saturday night in Seattle. I am the principal at Roosevelt High School in Seattle. We were playing the game before yours. As you may have heard, the games were significantly delayed. I had a chance to talk with some of your students as they arrived and still had a long wait before their game started. They were enthusiastic and very respectful. As it became more clear that our team was going to lose, many of our student fans left. In the 4th quarter, your students decided to move into the student section with our students and proceeded to join our remaining fans in cheering on Roosevelt, joining in with the cheers led by our cheerleaders and just generally having a good time. It was really great to see this and experience the positive energy coming from your student body.
Please pass my thanks to your students and whatever you are doing down in Skyview to create such a positive climate, keep it up. You may not have won the football game that night, but you won over all of us as we are now all big Skyview Storm fans. I hope everyone made it home safe as it was a very late night for them. Good luck with the school year.
Brian Vance, Principal
