Skyline Community Sing – This Sunday

Each month from September to May, we gather for songs and a potluck. All are welcome: children, teens and adults of all ages and all skill levels. We’ll sing some Skyline tunes, folk, world, gospel, acapella, and whatever else makes us happy. Come for a melodic recharge, for joy and fun, but neither perfection nor performance. No experience necessary, just the love of song.

If singing isn’t your thing, but you’d like to join us for the potluck, please do!

You are welcome to listen or go for a hike following the potluck.

What to bring for the potluck? One dish YOU enjoy: a main dish, a side, or a dessert to serve about 8 people.

Led by Shana & Matt Henry  Call Shana with questions at (810)-798-8240 or email

Auction 2019

The school auction on March 23rd is approaching quickly!!! The auction committee is busy planning for this one-of-a-kind event!  Each year we request UHS families to bring in two donations worth $65 or more each. These needn’t be donations that you personally purchase. Why not ask your favorite local store for a donation? Or even better, donate an experience! This year we are trying to focus on experience-focused items. What does that mean exactly? Perhaps you are a wonderful seamstress and would be willing to donate a couple hours of instruction…. Or maybe you own a business and can offer up time teaching your trade.  There are a lot of wonderful cooks at our school – perhaps a couple hour course making your favorite family meals? There are so many options! Donation sheets will be available at the auction area near the school office. Please remember to fill out completely – especially the value of your donation.


Please note that the venue has changed from the previous two years.  The auction will be held at Noah Event Center in Auburn Hills. Invitations will be mailed the first week in February.  


Have a wonderful weekend!
