Welcome to the
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. All Silvia students will participate in a Engineering is Elementary curriculum which will teach them both about the engineering design process, important science concepts, and an engineering profession. We at the Silvia School love to learn through doing experiments, creating technologies, and explaining our scientific thinking.
For instance, the First Graders created musical instruments at home and had a Friday parade in the hallways to celebrate their hard work, the Fifth graders dissected squid to gain a better understanding of squid adaptations, and Kindergarteners worked hard to better understand what kinds of bridges would hold the most weight.
FALL FITNESS CHALLENGE
The Silvia School has been growing a vegetable garden with grants from organizations such as Fuel Up Play 60. Students are tasting these delicious healthy snacks after school and very soon during lunch. The Fall Fitness challenge extends throughout the school in every corner of the Silvia school from exercises while waiting for the bathroom, a courtyard exercise program, to parent engagement activities.
The afterschool students enjoyed Mrs. Mahjoory's carrots with dill. Everyone agreed that they were delicious!
GLOBAL PLAY DAY
Children all around the world took time out of their day to play today. Take a look at some of first graders who had a moment to have some fun. We at the Silvia School believe it is important for students to play because research has shown that play "plays" an important part in a child's development and learning.
A number of the students enjoyed some time creating planes and structures out of Legos. Mrs. Parker took out some shaving cream and the students certainly loved that. A number of students smeared the shaving cream on the tables and even on their faces.
First Graders also created a beautiful mural to remember this very special day.
GIRL'S & BOY'S BASKETBALL TEAMS
