Aug 23, 2017 – Welcome Back!

It’s the first day of another amazing year at Silver Beach Elementary!

The PTO board are all excited to kick off the year; the energy was high at the Meet & Greet on Tuesday, and at morning drop-off on Wednesday morning.  It’s obvious that Mrs. Talley, the staff and our amazing teachers have been hard at work getting ready for the year.  The school and classrooms are ready for action.

Our Parent Volunteers have also been working for weeks already to hold up our end of the Bellingham Promise. Here’s a short list of what’s going on:

  • Candyce Kirbyson is collecting volunteer information to put parents to work helping our amazing students.
  • Susan Miner is scheduling the dates for Kids’ Nights Out, one of the most popular programs every year. The first night out will be September 8.
  • Sarah Elmer is working on Enrichment, setting up the Fall After School Programs.
  • Amber Asbjornsen is working to keep Mrs. Talley in touch with families through the Parent Advisory Committee .
  • Jodi Haggen is handling community and parent outreach through Facebook.
  • Kristen Kiene and Laura Lawyer are already working on the monthly Staff Lunches.
  • Ginny Hansen is already prepping for the Jog-a-Thon on September 22nd.
  • Misty Salvadar is planning the Fall Harvest Festival on October 27th.
  • Teri Milnes is working on setting up Morning Supervision later in the year when it gets chilly, and of course the Book Fair!
  • Ken Putney is working with Mr. Gilmore and the Silver Beach dads to kick off the Watch D.O.G.S. program.
  • Kristen Isokovic is already thinking about the Science Fair!

Our first Executive Board Meeting will be on September 12 to set plans in place.  The board will meet at 5:30, followed by an open house at 6:30.

Here’s to another great year at Silver Beach Elementary.
