By Mrs. Heyer “Our class has made something beautiful, and we are so proud of it. In our unit on personal narratives, the children have been learning how to write their six-word memories - or memoirs, if they're feeling fancy. You see, there is a legend that tells about Ernest Hemingway's shortest story. He wrote: Baby shoes. For Sale. Never […]

I learned today that my students independently launched their own class newspaper. These aspiring journalist in the fourth grade put together a whole writing staff. An editor, a research team, and publishing deadlines. They’ve used every spare minute and every Chromebook to write click-bait stories about the Titanic and Harriet Tubman. These are our SVA students.

SkyView Academy: Hellos and goodbyes, first impressions and parting words, they matter much to me. I read somewhere that the first two minutes you spend with someone can determine the rest of the day, and goodbyes spill right over into the spirit of the next day. That wisdom dug roots right into my heart.
Congratulations to the SVA girls soccer team on their quarter-final win. Onto semi-finals this Saturday, May 20th!
The Hawks did not get to play another home game and rather became road warriors. They continued their success, ending with a 14-7 record (10-2 in the conference) and beating the two best teams in our league, Front Range Christian, on February 2nd and Bishop Machebeuf on February 17th. Those two, and the rest of our wins, earned us an at-large bid for the State Playoffs for the first time in SkyView Boys Basketball History and the 2022-2023 Mile High League Co-Champions.
Black History Month: When I taught Fifth Grade, my students studied the Civil War, which is my favorite topic in U.S. History. They learned about the life of Frederick Douglass, from a slave to an abolitionist, and how heroic Harriet Tubman was by using the Underground Railroad to transport many slaves to freedom. I remember sharing a picture book about Ruby Bridges with my classes so they could learn about her bravery as the first African-American child to desegregate an all-white school in New Orleans. I have read books/poetry by Langston Hughes, Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou, and Angela Gorman, to name a few.
