Weekly Memo April 18 – 22

Parents of Silver Lake Elementary Students,

I hope you all are having a wonderful Easter weekend with your family.

Fundraiser:  Our fundraiser will end on Friday.  We are making great progress but still need more donations to reach our goal of $10,000   Here is a quick link that will take you straight to the donation link.  https://secure3.myschoolfees.com/guest_home.aspx?sid=5556&feegroupid=3029

Teacher Appreciation Week:  This week is Teacher Appreciation Week.  Please consider signing up to help out and show your appreciation for all your amazing teachers do for your kiddos.   https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050C49A5AE2CAAFD0-soda

No Student Day:  Our next No Student Day is on Monday the 25th.  There is no school for students as the teachers will be doing professional development.  Lunches will not be provided.

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

Secretary’s Appreciation Day:  Wednesday the 27th is Secretary’s Appreciation Day.  Please join us in showing the utmost appreciation for all our AMAZING secretaries do for Silver Lake Elementary.  Heather and Tiffany are wonderful and they certainly deserve to be recognized for all they do.

Art Night:  We have Silver Lake’s first annual “Arts Night” coming up on Wednesday, April 27th, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.  The halls will be filled with your student’s art and we will have performances from the Orchestra, Choir, 5th and 6th-grade Musical Theater group, and our award-winning ballroom team.  Come see your students “Shine”.  See this attached poster.  Arts Night.png

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 lunch time.  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 they 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.

Here is the schedule for all of the grade-level lunches.

Lifeskills = 11:30 AM

6th Grade = 11:40 AM

3rd Grade = 11:50 AM

5th Grade = 12:00 PM

4th Grade = 12:10 PM

2nd Grade = 12:20 PM

1st Grade = 12:50 PM

RISE Testing:  RISE Testing has begun.  We ask that you encourage your 3th-6th grade students to get a good night’s sleep and have a hearty breakfast on the morning of their tests.  Here is a copy of the testing schedule.   Rise Testing Schedule 2021-2022.pdf

Make this week awesome!

New Move-Ins:  If you know of anyone who is moving into our area, please encourage them to contact us to get their kiddos registered for next year.  With the growth in our area having a good count of who is coming will help with staffing for next year.

Spirit Shirts:  If you want to buy a replacement school spirit shirt for your kiddos, you can go to the myschoolfees.com link below to purchase more shirts or pay in the office. They are $10.00 each.

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.
