With a hopeful outlook, Silver Gate Elementary staff, students, and families promise to fulfill the terms of The Gratitude Challenge. Over the next 4 weeks, we pledge to complete the gratitude activities.

We promise to take note of life’s little blessings and to give thanks for the relationships, experiences and opportunities that make my life unique. From this day forward, we commit to living on the brighter side of life.

Last week I tried to take time each day to think of at least one thing I was grateful for. My list included my family, my friends, our health, the entire Silver Gate Community, living and working in such a beautiful part of San Diego... the list goes on. What were some things on your list?

Fall - Week 8 - Potatoes

Conference week!

Parent/Teacher conferences are just around the corner. Your child's teacher will meet with you individually to discuss your child's progress toward achieving grade level standards. Most conferences will be held the week prior to Thanksgiving Break. To accommodate the time teachers need to prepare for and conduct these important meetings, they may reduce the amount of synchronous learning they provide to their students by up to an hour each day the week of November 16th. Be on the lookout for more information from your child's teacher.

Virtual Calming Room

SDUSD Virtual Calming Room, created by the Counseling and Guidance Department. This has been created to be a safe space where students and families can find various tools to help with managing their emotions, feelings, and stress.

The CHOICE Enrollment window for the 2021-2022 school year closes on November 16. Make sure to get your application in before the deadline. Remember, you will need to fill out a CHOICE application for younger siblings if you do not reside within our neighborhood boundaries.

I'M Glad You're Here!

I always kick off the year by showing this video to the students to let them know I'm Glad they are at Silver Gate. At the end of every Monday Morning Assembly, I ask everyone to turn to their neighbor and say " I 'm Glad You're Here!
