9/28/16 Update From Silver Beach

Silver Beach News for 9.28.16

Dear Families,
Last week was an exciting week with our Student Led Open House and the Jog-A-Thon. Since this was our first fall Open House, we are very interested in parent feedback about Student-ledOpen House vs Curriculum Night (parents & teachers only).  I’d love an email from you sharing your perspective and how we can best communicate units of study, learning goals and how to help at home.

WatchDOGS (Dads Of Great Students) is a great volunteering opportunity that provides male role models for our students. WatchDOGS are fathers, uncles, grandfathers and other father-figures who may read, work on math, play at recess, eat lunch with students, watch the school entrance and hallways, assist with traffic flow and other assigned activities where they actively support our learning community. Come learn more at Dads and Kids Pizza Night, Tuesday, October 4th 5:30-6:30.  For more information, you  can contact:  [email protected]  Applications are also available in the office.
Have a great week!

Our Field of Dreams! After two summers and two auctions and some patient waiting from students our field is finally open!  This was a long project that could not have been done without the help of volunteers. The PTO Board would like to thank Lerin Swiacky and Andrea Balzotti, the two chairs that led the two auctions we held to create our Field of Dreams.  Also, thank you to all the volunteers that helped them both! This project could not have been done without the help from the City of Bellingham, Bellingham School District, and Ram Construction. Finally, a BIG thank you to Curtis and Laura Lawyer for managing the project over the summer!
