Welcome to the

Silvia School

 

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.

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.

Together, we at the Silvia School are committed to a high quality, safe learning environment.

Here are some logistics about our school:

  • Student start and end times are Monday 7:25 am – 2:30 pm and Tuesday to Friday 7:25 am – 3:40 pm
  • The Silvia Star is a parent newsletter that is sent out at the beginning of each month to discuss school-wide events and highlight student work. Please check your child's backpack regularly for the newsletter and notices from teachers and administration.
  • The Silvia School has both morning and afternoon daycare. The cost for morning daycare is $2/day per child while in the afternoon, $10/day for the first child and five for every additional child. Daycare begins on the first day of school, and you can stop by to sign up or click here for the forms.
