Before and After School Programs

Clubhouse at Skycrest offers before and after school programs. Registration for Clubhouse can be found under “Webforms” on FACTS. Clubhouse offers structured games, crafts, and activities, as well as designated homework time and is open to all grades and is directed by Mr. Paul Williamson.

Friday Treats / Teacher Appreciation

Each Friday, students may choose to bring money to purchase a “Friday treat”. Proceeds from Friday treat purchases go toward monthly Teacher Appreciation luncheons.  An email is sent by Mrs. Heather Williamson each week that announces the treat and the cost. The cost will be $1.00 for most weeks unless otherwise noted. The treats are distributed by each teacher to his/her students at the end of the school day.

Parent Communication

Emails from administration and teachers will be sent through FACTS. Occasionally, you will receive a Parent Alert text on your cell phone. These alerts are sent through FACTS and are only sent when there is an important message that is time-sensitive, such as a sports event cancellation, storm-related school day cancellation, etc. Please make sure that we have your most up-to-date email and cell phone number at all times.

School Lunch Ordering Process

Students may choose to bring a lunch or order lunch. Lunches are ordered one month at a time. All items are a la carte. Mrs. Heather Shehayeb, kitchen manager, will send an email when lunch ordering opens for the following month.  Here are the steps to place an order:

■ Log in to your FACTS account.
■ Click on “Student” on the left side.
■ Click “Lunch”.
■ Click “Create Web Order”.
■ Make your selections and click “Order Items” at the bottom of the page.

Lunch orders are automatically billed to your school account. The following items can be purchased with cash and do not require online ordering: PB&J, side salads, yogurt, cheese, fresh fruit, chips, desserts, drinks, and ice cream.

School Supply Lists

School supply lists for each grade can be found by logging into your FACTS account under “Resource Documents”. School supplies can be brought with your child on “Meet and Greet” day.  Students in grades 6-8 may choose to set up their lockers on this day, as well.
