The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To that end, our comprehensive task force has outlined a school reopening plan that includes a return to full-time in-person instruction for students in grades PK-5, 6, and 9, and an alternating schedule with a combination of in-person and synchronous real-time online learning for students in grades 7-8 and 10-12.
La seguridad continúa, el bienestar, y el éxito de nuestros estudiantes, maestros, empleados, y la comunidad siempre ha sido nuestra prioridad más importante a manera que enfrentamos la compleja y evolucionante crisis del coronavirus. Con eso en mente, nuestro integro y dedicado grupo de trabajo ha preparado un plan de reapertura de las escuelas que incluye un regreso a la enseñanza en persona de tiempo completo para los estudiantes que están en los grados del PK al 5, en el 6, y en el 9, y un horario alternativo con una combinación de aprendizaje en persona y un aprendizaje sincronizado en vivo en tiempo real en línea a través del Internet para estudiantes en los grados 7 al 8 y del 10 al 12.

This fall, the Skyline High School Robotics Club competed in Rocky Mountain BEST’s Blade Runner Competition, a sports-like science and engineering-based robotics competition. On Saturday, September 6, 2014 students representing various middle and high schools from across the Front Range attended “Kickoff” at Denver South High School where the game rules and field were revealed for the year’s game. Participating teams were given an identical set of building materials on this day to create a robot in 6 weeks to meet the design challenge. The theme for the year’s competition was the assembly of a wind turbine. The robot needed to acquire a building permit, open bridges, relocate turbine nacelles and blades, and assemble these materials onto a tower.

Game Day took place at the Auraria Campus Event Center at Metro State University of Denver campus on Saturday, October 18th. On Game Day, teams competed in a series of seeding matches until the team with the best scores moved into semi-finals, and then into the final matches. The Skyline Robotics Club placed 17th against 32 other high schools and middle schools located along the Front Range. Skyline’s robot featured 3 wheels, a wooden base, and an arm made out of pvc. All manufacturing of parts, assembling, and coding for the robot was completed by the students with only mentoring from adults. After the competition, students took time to reflect on what they had learned from this year’s competition.
Lessons learned from the competition:
“It is good to plan before building”
“Decide something once”
“Leave room for re-design”
“The importance of time management”
