Weekly Memo April 11 – 15

Parents of Silver Lake Elementary Students,

Building Community Connections & Support Event:  The Westlake HS PTA Council is hosting a community support event on April 11th at 6:30 PM to address mental health and wellness.  It is free for the whole family.  Here is a flyer about it.  Building Community Connections & Support flyer .png

PTA Meeting:  Our next PTA Meeting is on Tuesday the 12th at 1:30 PM.

Spring Picture Day: Spring Picture Day is on Thursday the 14th for those who want to get pictures taken.  Spring pictures are a little bit different than normal school photos. They are more like an individual photoshoot with multiple poses being offered. As such, only students with an order will be photographed. Order online so we know to photograph your student. Learn more by visiting: eastmanadamsphotography.com use the QR code on this flyer:  2022_Spring_Eflyer_SilverLakeES.pdf

Yearbook:  Friday the 15th is the deadline to purchase yearbooks.  They are full color and really great keepsakes.  Here is a flyer about deadlines and ways to purchase them.   Yearbook Flyer 2021-2022.jpg

Teacher Appreciation Week:  This is from our wonderful PTA – Teacher Appreciation Week is quickly approaching (April 18-22). We have plenty of ways you can pitch in to help our teachers, staff, and administration feel appreciated. Look for an email from your child’s room parent or teacher to sign up to bring lunch for your child’s teacher. Additionally, if you’re interested in contributing to the soda bar in the teacher’s break room, see the sign-up genius: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050C49A5AE2CAAFD0-soda

Battle of the Books:  Our Battle of the Books week is the week of April 25th.

Munch & Mingle:  On Friday the 29th of April we will have our first Munch & Mingle.  This is when parents and families can come to eat lunch with their kiddos during their scheduled lunchtime.  We will not be able to accommodate adjusting students’ lunch schedules so please plan accordingly and spread out your lunch with your kids if they have different lunchtimes.  You can either do picnic-style lunch on the grass west of the gym (we will have safety staff in place for those crossing the parking lot) or you can eat in the lunchroom or on the playground. At my former schools, parents brought lunches to enjoy with their kiddos.  Students can still get school lunch if you so desire. Bring blankets to sit on and come and enjoy this fun activity.  If the weather is poor, we will move into the gym and lunchroom.

Let’s make this week AMAZING!

The Birthday on Marquee:  Parents can pay to have their student’s name pop up on our outside digital marquee on their birthday.  Please give us a couple of days to get it up, especially if it is over the weekend. We try hard to check every day and we do not want to miss anyone’s birthday if payment is made within a day or two of the actual birthday.  The cost is $7.00 to be paid online.  The instructions are below in the Online Payment & Program Registration link.
