Principal's Welcome

Dear Skokie Families and Community,

It is our pleasure to welcome you back for another wonderful year at Skokie.  We are excited for the 2023-24 school year.  It has been a joy to launch the year with our students, educators and families. Our halls, classrooms and learning spaces in and around the school are vibrant spaces where students ask questions, generate ideas, innovate and iterate.  Our classroom communities focus on the whole child and on a commitment to building and sustaining a child-focused community.  

We are looking forward to the year ahead in partnership with our families and community.  We hope that you will find our website to be informative and helpful.  Our weekly newsletter, The Skokie Home Scoop, is emailed to families on Monday each week.  Newsletters will be linked on the website on a weekly basis as well.

We believe strongly in our partnership with families as we continue to support the growth of our students as empathetic, collaborative, lifelong learners.  Please feel free to contact us using the contact information below.  We are looking forward to a wonderful school year!
