I was Skylee's 6th grade teacher. She was one of my favorite students! Cheerful, kind to others, good sense of humor and a hard worker... that's the kind of student all teachers dream of having in their class. Glad to know you, Skylee!

So sad you’re gone skylee. You were so amazing and someone who was always there for me durning my hard times, you always helped me and taught me how to be a better human on this hard planet. I wish there was something I could’ve done to help you. I’ll see you on the other side soon. Rest easily and in peace
