Character Education

At Skyview Elementary we support the districts mission to help students build character. Every week students are introduced to a new character word, and the words are reinforced in every classroom and every area of the school. Students are given opportunities from the moment they enter Sky Mountain to demonstrate good character. We are the MACON MIRACLE!!!
