Check your Silverware Drawer!
Do you have some forks or spoons that don’t belong to your set roaming around your kitchen? Chances are they have come home with your student from school. If you could return these to us, that would be very much appreciated! Thanks!
Sporting Silverwood this Summer
As you leave our campus and get started on all the vacation plans and fun trips we want to challenge families to wear their Silverwood gear on their adventures and send Miss Sara pictures. Any pictures of families and students wearing their Silverwood Tee out and about on vacation will be posted on our Facebook page and on our office bulletin board! Represent your school in Paris, Disneyland, or the local Walmart. Wherever your adventures take you!

Mr. T’s Take…

June 3, 2016

As this year comes to a close, I would like to thank staff, parents, and our community for everything they do to help our students experience success at Silverwood School. I can’t help but feel excitement for next school year and I’m counting down the days until September 7, 2016!

Please join me in saying farewell to two of our staff members at the end of this school year. Miss Cory is seeking full-time work as a teacher in Kitsap County and Miss Francesca is moving to Virginia. We will begin looking for a Spanish teacher this summer and as mentioned during the State of Silverwood, we will not seek additional teaching staff until we achieve a balanced budget. Miss Cory and Miss Francesca will be missed and I wish them well in their future endeavors.

This summer, the office will be open most days for transactions, questions, or just a summer visit. Sara and I will be on vacation during different time frames; however, one of us should be available on most days, Monday through Friday. We will inform you when we are both out of the office.

I want to invite each of you in for a visit over the summer if you would like to discuss your hopes and dreams for your children and for Silverwood School. Now that we know each other a little better, I’m hoping you feel comfortable discussing anything that is on yourmind. Thanks for a great year and I hope you have an enjoyable summer.

Out of the Mouth of Babes…

In math class on Thursday the kids asked Mr. T. if he was coming back next year. He teased them and said, “Just as soon as Miss Sara and Miss Sunshine decide I can come back.” Today in math one student earnestly said, “Mr. T., have Miss Sara and Miss Sunshine decided if they are going to let you come back next year yet?”

Hmmmm…. They pose an excellent question. Who know we had that much power?
