Skyline's Talia Scheletsky has the honor of being name school social worker of the year and Mesa High's Nicole Delgado was named key difference maker of the year.

We all know what a tremendous asset Ms. Talia is to the Skyline COMMUNITY. Recently, her professional organization also realized what an asset she is and named her School Social Worker of the Year!  This award reflects nominations and recognition by her peers in the field of social work.

This week is National School Social Workers week. Please take time to appreciate your school social workers! School social workers are beacons of light on our campuses. They are able to light the way for our students and staff, emphasizing the whole child, collaborating with other professionals, linking students and families with needed services, and advocating for their profession.

Have a fantastic Spring Break!!
