Hello Silver Ridge families,

 

APEX Fundraiser

Monday, February 6 begins two weeks of our PTA’s only big FUNdraiser of the year! We are excited to be partnering with Apex Leadership for the second year in a row.  What can you and our students expect? APEX will bring some great leadership lessons for our students, add FUN to recess with the Apex team, and host an awesome Glow in the Dark Fitness Move Event on Thursday, February 16!  Plus, they will help our amazing PTA raise some much needed money for Field Trips, Classroom Experiences, Arts Integration, and so much more! 

 

Again, this is our PTA's only major fundraiser of the year, and we appreciate your support and help to make our school community the best that it can be!

 

Connecting Home and School

On another note, we are now about half way through the year, and every classroom has covered so much content. You may not have heard about much of it from your child though. I know that over the years, when I have asked my own children what they did in school, I didn’t get very much in return. I think sometimes children feel like they are being asked to recount more than they would like to, not understanding that as parents, we are just looking for ways to connect to them. Here are ten alternative questions you could try. Give one or two a try each day to see what works best for your child/ren! 

  1. Can you tell me about something you felt excited about today?
  2. Think about what you learned and did in school today. What’s something you’d like to know more about? 
  3. Can you tell me about a time today when one of your classmates was kind to you?
  4. Was there something you did today that made you feel proud of yourself?
  5. What did you appreciate about your day?
  6. What did you learn about yourself today? 
  7. Is there anything that you’d like to talk about that I might be able to help you figure out?
  8. Is there anything you’re worried about?
  9. What are you looking forward to tomorrow?
  10. Is there a question you wish I’d ask you about your day?

Hold the date!

Calling all diggers, planters, and general helpers of all ages! Saturday, March 11, we will be working on beautifying our school. I hope you can come to help us plant, mulch, and spruce up the outside of our building to reflect all the beauty happening on the inside! More details to follow.

 

Reminders:

  1. We love to have you volunteer! Please reach out if you would like to help out in any way. 
  2. Insider tip: You can take a right out of the parking lot to get to Ridgetop Blvd. You don’t need to wait for the light to change at Ridgetop and Hillsboro if you take a right onto Hillsboro and a left at Marigold at the end of the day. 
  3. Our Silver Ridge Dojo Account has great updates, and it’s free to join!
  4. If you haven’t already, join PTA to add your voice to planning for our school community!

 

Thank you for all that you do. Together we do great things!

Tina Piper, Principal
