Dear Storm Families,

As the principal of Skyview High School, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year in Storm Nation. The first day of school is not until August 30th but we are all very excited to have our kids back in our classrooms, hallways and commons filling this building with energy. It is our mission to provide each student with the necessary knowledge and skills to be college, career and life ready. We accomplish this through delivering high quality instruction and intentionally creating a positive school culture. This work is reflected in our building core values of trust, integrity and a commitment to excellence. We use these values as our guiding lights on a daily basis.

We hope that you will find our school website helpful and informative.

This website has a wealth of information and links to help your family maximize their experience at Skyview. Additionally, I have a Twitter account (@JGrizzle81) that I will use to send out updates, promote great SHS events and quick announcements as we go through the school year. Many of our staff have Twitter accounts also. When great classroom moments occur, our staff will use the tag #shswelearn in their tweets. I encourage you to follow any and all of our staff to see what is happening in classes.

I am honored to serve the Skyview community as principal. It is truly a privilege to be part of a community where all stakeholders (students, staff and parents) are so equally engaged and committed to the success of one another. It is why I have always lived within the Storm Nation boundaries and send my own kids to SHS. This is truly a special place.

The Back to School BBQ is on Monday, August 28th from 5:30pm to 7pm. Come have a hamburger, meet the SHS community and have a great time. Again, the first day of school will be August 30th.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns, I encourage you to contact myself at 360-313-4205 or

Once again, we are so excited to welcome everyone back! Enjoy the rest of August and let’s make 2017-2018 the best year in Storm history!
