General Shout Out…

Parent Teacher Conferences

There will be no school next Thursday and Friday, 3/23 and 3/24, during Parent Teacher Conferences.  If you haven’t had a chance to sign up, please check log into  SignUpGenius at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0c4fadab2ca7fa7-spring1 to schedule time with your child’s main teacher as well as his or her art, math, or science teacher. Please call the office if you need any help with this. Childcare will be provided for the time you are scheduled to be in a conference.

  • We will also be offering in-service care with Miss Abby both days. Please contact the office at office@silverwoodschool.org if your child will be using this service next week.

Pi Day

A fun day was had by all in celebrating Tuesday’s π day. During math, we had a variety of pies to taste while reciting the magic number 3.141592653589793238462643383279502884197169399375105820974944592…

Individual Pies for Pi Day

Mr. T’s Take…

Into the Woods Auction: I want to thank everyone who attended and participated in some way to make our annual auction a success.  We grossed over $37,000, and we should net between $28,000 and $30,000 after expenses.  I am proud of our community for this fundraising effort.

Enrollment:  In mid-April of last year, we had 29 students enrolled for the 2016-2017 school year.  As of today, we have 45 students enrolled for the 2017-2018 school year!  When I talk to families who are interested in coming to Silverwood, most of them are here because our current parents and community members are telling them what a great school we have.  We are currently projecting between 60 and 65 students attending next year, and I want to thank everyone for promoting our school.  You are the best marketing tool we have, and I truly appreciate your efforts.

Please enjoy this Saint Patrick’s Day and have a restful weekend.
