Silver Gate Elementary

Week of June14 , 2021

Two more days!

Well, we made it. The final two days of the school year have arrived and it is truly a bittersweet moment. This has been a year unlike any other and I will certainly never forget it. Thank you all for your support, patience, flexibility, and understanding.

I wish you all a wonderful summer break filled with relaxation, adventure, and good health! For those of you returning to Silver Gate the Fall, we are looking forward to welcoming you back. For those moving on, we will miss you and we wish you well!


Thank you to Jerry Nies, Kailah Fletcher, Alice Ramotowski and Max Ramotowski. They have been raising and lowering both school flags everyday since we started in person learning. Thank you students for your commitment to our school.

We are so excited to celebrate the accomplishments of our 4th graders at our Virtual Promotion Ceremony on Tuesday, June 15th! I will send the Zoom link through Konstella. The kids made wonderful slides for our promotion video. It will be a nice keepsake that they can share with their friends and family. On June 15th the fourth graders will engaged in yearbook signing, kickball game and popsicles at the end of the day. They need to dress sporty as we are going to be active most of the day.

Report Cards

Report Cards will be available to parents via the PowerSchool Parent Portal beginning on Tuesday June 15th. Please click the button below for help in logging into the PowerSchool Parent Portal.


Please slow down, do not double park, and do not drive into oncoming traffic. These driving basics are being ignored by some around school. Our main priority is the safety of the children. Please do your part.

All students remaining in SDUSD for the 2021-2022 school year will keep their devices over the summer and use them when they return to school in the Fall. This includes our students transitioning to Dana Middle School.

Students that will not be continuing in an SDUSD school next year must return their computers and chargers to Mrs. Hutchinson or Mrs. Gary in the library at Silver Gate by June 11th.

Students will have access to applications in Clever until July 30th.

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!
