As many of you know, we have been putting on our own Special Olympics-type event every year here at Skyline. This year, the organizers wanted to make it bigger and even more exciting for participants, so we have reached out to our feeder middle schools(Timberline and Trail Ridge), asking them join us for the day's festivities. We are really excited to have future Falcons joining our event!
On Saturday, March 11, 2017, St. Vrain Valley School District held its 2nd Annual District-Wide Design Challenge here at Skyline High School.

Katelyn Wojniak (12th), Michelle Tran (10th), and Adriana Guzman (9th/PTECH) went to the State Capitol to give testimony in support of HB 17 - 1184, the Modern Technology Education in Public Schools bill.

The motion passed 11 - 2 on March 23rd!
