Positive Office Referrals from last month
Cuyahoga Falls City Schools utilizes PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) as a way to focus on the positive behaviors and how to change behaviors by using positive reinforcement. This goes hand-in-hand with our code of conduct that provides discipline procedures for negative behaviors. In wanting to help reinforce the positive behaviors students exhibit, Silver Lake Elementary is using a Positive Student Referral System where staff members can refer a student to the principal but for positive reasons.
Congratulations to these Silver Lakers on their Positive Referral to my office!
Playground Use Outside of School Hours
After school, once students have joined their parents/guardians and are in their care and under their supervision, students may be on the playground sets. Again, this is an issue with supervision and we do not want anything to happen to our little Black Tigers.
Parents with students picking up younger siblings (HS or MS students): please have conversations regarding how they should not be playing on the equipment when our day is still in session. I understand that older students get out earlier but that becomes a disruption to the end of the day here. I appreciate all of you help with this matter.

Silver Lake Staff Spotlight
Meet our Librarian
Get to know Mrs. Tina Lindy
Hi! This is my 20th year in education and my 17th year as the Elementary Librarian for Cuyahoga Falls City Schools. I enjoy working with all of the students in grades K-5 across the district! This is actually my 30th year in the district, as my first career was a CF student from Kindergarten through 12th grade.
Outside of school, I enjoy traveling with my family and hanging out with my cats and dogs. This year we traveled up the west coast from San Diego to Seattle. My daughter started college this year at Findlay University and both of my sons attend Cuyahoga Falls schools.
Meet our CTIS (Classroom Technology Integration Specialist)
Get to know Mr. Ron Winkler
When not in the classroom, I enjoy coaching. I coached boys/girls basketball for twelve years, spent eight years as a high school baseball coach, and spent ten years as a manager/coach for travel and recreational baseball/softball teams.
Little known facts about Mr. Winkler are that he likes working on anything with an engine, loves animals, built his own computer desk (and computer), was a reserve police officer for 5 years, has recently taught himself how to use a CNC plasma cutting machine, and enjoys welding.
