Monday Minute

Dear Parents,

Tomorrow night is STEAM Night, and we’re excited to see families enjoy the fun activities that have been planned.  We will be having a science assembly during school that will be super fun, and the scientist will be coming back to present at 5:30, so mark the time for that.  The other events are not time-sensitive going from 6-8 pm, and it will be open-house style.   Extra parking will be available on the south playground.  The gate near the main crosswalk will be open and you can park on the playground.  The front door and north door will be open and our student council will have maps of the various activities that are happening.   See you there!


Spirit Day

Every Friday is Spirit Day at Silver Mesa, and we encourage students to wear their school shirts or our school colors—Blue and White.  One Friday a month our Student Council designates a special spirit day.  This Friday is “Anything But a Backpack” Day.  Students can join the fun by bringing anything but a backpack to hold their school items they bring to and from school that day.  


Science Fair

Congratulations to all who participated in our Science Fair!  And thank you PTA for sponsoring this fun event.  You can see all the projects when you come to STEAM night tomorrow.  Here’s a list of those who placed in each grade:
