Principal’s Message

Dear Skipwith Elementary Families:

I hope you are had a safe and relaxing summer break with family and friends. With the team work approach Skipwith teachers, parents, community, and students celebrated a very successful 2016-2017 school year. Our school academic goals to increase our SOL reading scores in 3-5th grade and decreasing the identified students on the K-2 PALS assessment were met! We are very proud of these accomplishments and plan to move forward to continue overall school growth. We look forward to the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year and have been busy preparing for the upcoming year. We will have many exciting learning opportunities and changes.

Please review the important dates and information for the upcoming school year below:

OFFICE HOURS: Office hours are 7:00-4:00 Monday –Friday.

REGISTRATION: Please call to make an appointment to register your child as soon as possible and avoid the late August rush!

OPEN HOUSE: Open House will be Thursday, August 31st

             11:30-12:30 – Pre-School

2017-2018 Skipwith theme and Renovation News:

Our 2017-2018 school theme will be “Building for the Future”. Skipwith will begin our renovation and construction over the next two years!! Due to the renovations some school procedures will need to be adjusted to ensure the safety of the students and staff members. Parent drop off and parking will be much more difficult. Therefor we highly encourage you to have your children ride their assigned school bus to and from school. There will be four phases with the renovation which will start in September. We have six double wide learning cottages (trailers) in the middle of the track with 12 classes. 2nd,3rd, and 5th grade students will be in these trailers for the duration of this school year. While there will be many challenges and adjustments throughout the year please be assured that we will remain focused on your children’s safety and education. This is an exciting time for Skipwith and we look forward to another successful school year.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and are as excited as we are to begin the new school year! If you have any questions, please call Skipwith Elementary at 527-4650.  My email is .


Todd Allen Smith, Principal
