Curious about NWEA Testing?
Your child's NWEA test scores were sent home with your child's report card. Please find a copy of the information sheet accompanying your child's scores here. You can also access Illinois specific information about NWEA standards here

It’s Cookie Dough Fundraising Time!
The PTO is hosting our best and most profitable fundraiser! The Cookie Dough fundraiser runs from 2/23-3/11 to ensure delivery for report card pick-up day. Packets were scheduled to be sent home with students on Wednesday.  If you haven't received one, extra packets can be found in the files near the elevator or in the main office (on the desk when you walk in.) 

All funds are due by 3/11 to ensure a delivery of cookie dough for report card pick up day. The funds raised go back to our Skinner Superstars whether in the classrooms, access to
computer programs (IXL/Achieve 3000), field trips, special projects, etc.

Parent volunteers are needed to help deliver items to the classroom. Please contact Stephanie Majca @ if you have questions or can volunteer.

Skinner West is awarded with a 2013 National Blue Ribbon Award
