#TeamSkylar celebrates classmate’s return to school

Hundreds of Schuylerville Middle School students gathered Friday morning to celebrate the return of their classmate who has been battling a brain tumor. Eighth-grader Skylar Sisson was diagnosed with a brain tumor in January, had surgery in April and surprised everyone with her quick return to school on Wednesday, May 11.

On Friday, May 13, Skylar’s classmates gathered on the football field to show their continued support and love by wearing blue shirts that said “La Vie est Belle” (“Life is Beautiful” in French) on the front, and #TeamSkylar on the back, along with the number 22, Skylar’s volleyball number. They officially welcomed her back by forming a heart and having her join Principal Katie Elsworth in the center.
