Each year our Student Council sells Candy Grams as a fun way to celebrate friendship at Silver Mesa in the month of February. They will sell heart suckers and fun pencils during students’ lunch recesses from Feb. 6th-10th for a cost of 50 cents each. Students may bring money to lunch with them and purchase which items they want and who they want it to go to. The student council members will create a card to attach to the item with the sender’s name on it (or anonymous if desired) and deliver it to the named individual’s classroom on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14th. Our student council wants everyone to get a delivery, so they ensure that every student receives one. Parents are also welcome to purchase Candy Grams from the front office that same week to send to students or staff.
Silver Mesa will continue to offer full-day kindergarten next year. This is not a fee/paid option, rather it is offered free of charge to all in our boundaries and those who permit in as space is available. This is due to state legislature funding. There are some schools in our district that, as of now, are offering supplemental hours kindergarten. This is a paid option, and our district communications is sending out information to the district as a whole letting all communities know about that option and which schools are offering it. If you have any questions about kindergarten, please contact our front office. We do have Kindergarten Orientation coming up on April 14th, so please put that on your calendar.
We postponed the Fire Drill that was planned today due to the rain. We’ll choose another day this week to practice.
During the month of December, our students’ Kindness Challenge was to smile at 25 people. It was wonderful to see our Kindness Challenge Board covered with smiley faces! For the month of January we all took the Kindness Pledge. As Silver Mesa Eagles we pledge to
- Always be encouraging and supportive in your words
- Be responsible and helpful with your actions
- Be thankful and positive when at all possible
- Be honest
- Take responsibility for your actions and make things right when you make a mistake
- Be considerate and respectful no matter what
- Be a friend to all
