Dear Eagles,

We had a fun celebration today to honor students who had perfect attendance in the month of March.  We will keep promoting good attendance and appreciate everyone’s efforts to be at school each day.  Thanks, Mrs. Pottorff, for leading us in a fun celebratory dance!

Picture Day is Wednesday

There's still time to place your spring portrait order online:

   Go to

  • Create your own package with the sizes and quantities you want.
  • Pay online and send completed flyer with your child on spring Picture Day to make sure your child is photographed.

Faculty Leaving at end of Year

Another faculty member that will be missed next year is Virginia Ramos, our school psychologist.  She is finishing up her doctorate degree and has accepted a position back east where she will continue her studies.  She leaves big shoes to fill.  We wish her well!

Book Cart

If you are doing any spring cleaning and have some children’s books that you would like to clear out, we have the place for them!  In our front hallway is a cart with donated books.  We’d love any donations of gently used books.  Students and parents can then choose a book from the shelf at any time and put $1 in the lock box. 

Learning Environment Request Forms

While it is not possible to place students in classrooms according to personal preference, the school realizes that there are, in rare cases, unusual and significant circumstances (medical, educational, personal problems etc.) that may require special consideration.  If you want to provide input concerning your child’s unique circumstances, please put it in writing and deliver it to the office by Friday, May 13, 2016.  You can pick up a form in the front office or create your own detailing the circumstances.  This is not a guarantee that your child will be placed in the requested classroom, but all requests will be carefully considered and reviewed. 


We have started getting in shape for the jogathon, and students are jogging/walking the field during their morning recesses.  We are in need of volunteers to come and mark tickets for students completing laps.  A sign-up link is included if you have a day or more that you can volunteer.  It’s a lot of fun watching students get their laps in each day, with prize drawings happening each morning.

PTA Notes

Classic Skating Night sponsored by Silcox Orthodontics--April 26th

Mark your calendars for the next Classic Skate Night sponsored by Silcox Orthodontics from 5:30-8:30 P.M. Thanks to Silcox Orthodontics for providing this fun night for our students!

Bike Rodeo by Safe Kids Utah and the Sandy Police Dept.

Safe Kids Utah has offered to come in and hold another Bike Rodeo for our school this year.  The date they are coming is on Friday, April 29th and it will be for ALL students (K-5). Please have your students bring their bikes or scooters and helmetslabeled with their name and grade.  We need some volunteers to help with the rodeo and when kids drop off and pick up their bikes. If you're available and willing, please go here to sign

PTA Year-End Survey

A year-end survey will be coming home with your student(s) soon.  Please help your child fill it out and return it to the school by May 6th and your child will receive a small treat.  This is the best way for us to learn how we can make improvements for next year and what PTA programs should take priority at Silver Mesa. If you have more suggestions/input/feedback, please feel free to email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Silver Eagle Award 

Thanks to those who nominated teachers and volunteers for the Silver Eagle Award.  The winners will be announced later in May.
