- School summer work has gone home. There will be copies available at the Silvia School for pick-up if you do not receive one. Students are asked to complete their math calendar and read regularly. Practicing math facts and reading regularly over the summer keeps students from forgetting the work that they have learned through the course of the year.To motivate students we will be hosting a summer check-in on Wednesday July 27th from 4:00 to 5:00. Please have your child stop by to receive a small prize for all their hard work. (Students should complete half of their work by the check-in date.) Here is an article about summer reading. Students motivated to do some writing over the summer can find interesting topics and ideas to write about using this calendar.
Silvia School Focus: Field Day Fun
Silvia School students celebrated field day outside on this wonderful sunny day. Mrs. Mahjoory and Mr. Powers taught students these fantastic and fun games prior to this event so that students were well-versed on how to play. Our Silvia Stars popped balloons with pool noodles, ran care packages back and forth, and flew "airplanes" during relay races. The K-2 games were run by parents and our graduating fifth grade class who monitored the different groups and cheered the students on. Thank you fifth grade students for all your help!
Silvia School Focus: Science, Technology, Engineering & Math
At the Silvia School, students participate in STEM classes to further their learning in science. Our teachers have been working on revamping the science curriculum so that it meets the current NGSS standards that have been in place in January. Kindergarteners have been learning about solids, liquids, and gases and the way in which a mixture changes depending on the temperature. The students made ice cream to demonstrate how easily and delicious things can be. First grade students having been investigating light and sound and developing their scientific vocabulary on how light moves.
