Silver Creek Chronicle

Week of January 10th, 2022

From Mrs. Flemming

Our first week of 2022 is in the books and I can't tell you how wonderful it was to see your students walk through those doors Wednesday morning. The big smiles and big hugs were definitely missed! As we have grown together this year, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your flexibility and continued support. Your sweet smiles in the pickup line and positive feedback mean the world.

SCIENCE FAIR UPDATE: There is a portion of the Science Fair packet that states an oral video recording. This is NOT necessary.

We are excited to see all of you at STEAM Night tomorrow from 5:30-6:30. This evening will be much like our Pajama Jam Literacy night with each grade level preparing fun, interactive activities for all ages. Please plan to park in the big parking lot and enter through the side doors.

We will also be showcasing our Science Fair projects in the cafeteria and announcing the winners at 6:15. Don't forget, all projects must be brought to campus no later than 2:00PM tomorrow.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me!

❤ Mrs. Flemming

Spelling Bee Buzz

On Monday we will be announcing who is advancing to our school Spelling Bee. Those students will be coming home with a congratulations letter and the Spelling Bee Study List from Scripps along with a parent email.

Our oral spelling bee will be Friday, January 14, at 1:45. Parents are invited to attend. The winner of our spelling bee will be advancing to the area competition at Boswell High School on January 28.

Exact Path - What is it!?

We are excited to announce that we are piloting a new learning and intervention program at Silver Creek Elementary, Exact Path. This online program integrates the information we receive from the MAP tests our students are already taking and creates a unique learning plan to help fill in any areas that may be challenging and strengthen other areas beyond their current grade level.

Please feel free to read more about Exact Path by clicking on the file below and ask your Camper how many trophies they have already earned.

From your SC PTO

Hello Silver Creek Family!

The PTO has been busy organizing some pretty awesome events! January started off hot with 2 winners for our front row parent pick up! Tia Kattau and Kate Webb no longer have to wait in line to get their kids! Thank you for all who bought tickets, your money will go towards our goal of creating a new fourth grade rock garden!

On January 21, we will be having our first cereal box dominions! This should be so much fun for the kids! Not only is a giant dominos fun to watch, all cereal boxes brought will be donated to our local Community Caring Center in Azle! Look for the flyer to go home this week!

Lastly, PTO is proud to hold our 2nd Valentine’s Day family fun night! The night will be on Feb. 11 from 6-8, bring your whole family for a night of food, games, photos, crafts and prizes! Please make sure to SIGN UP HERE to work a time slot at our February 11th Valentine's Family Night. It is going to be such a great time but we need your help!

As always, we LOVE our volunteers and we could not run PTO without ya’ll! Please follow us on FB or email us at
