Leader in Me - Parent Survey

As a Leader in Me Lighthouse school we are always working to understand how we can improve. Please complete the survey below as part of an annual assessment to help all members of the school community (students, parents, and the adults who work at the school) understand how we're doing. Your responses will provide us with important information to help us become even better. All of your responses are completely anonymous. The survey should take you approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. Please try to respond to all items. Thank you!

2019/2020 School Supply Kit Ordering Time!

We are into the 4th quarter of the school year now so ready or not, it's time to plan for next year!

The Northville Council of PTA's, in coordination with Silver Springs PTA, is again offering the Edukit School Supply Kit fundraiser. The lists have been developed by each of the grades as recommended supplies for your student. This fundraiser is completely optional and is only being offered as a convenient way to get all your supplies, as the Northville Public Schools provides the necessary supplies and materials for your child's successful school experience. If ordered by June 14th, the kits will be shipped directly (for free) to the school. After June 15th, kits will be shipped directly to your home for a nominal fee. Please contact Laurie Techko (lev1972@yahoo.com) with any questions.



Silver Springs Elementary Science Olympiad

Interested in exploring STEM through a hands-on and interactive approach? Science Olympiad provides one of the best environments to do just that. With 16 different events with varying areas of focus each year, elementary students have the ability to discover science through highly interesting and engaging material, such as learning about the stars that twinkle in the night sky or how to create a rocket out of a water bottle. Science Olympiad not only helps students expand their knowledge of scientific principles and phenomena but also allows them to acquire skills like teamwork, communication, and commitment that will prove to be invaluable in all aspects of life.

If you are interested in learning more about the program, feel free to fill out the following Google form and browse through the Wayne-Oakland Science Olympiad official website. The form will help us gauge the number of potential members and availability for an Open House in the fall of the next school year. If there are multiple students from the same family interested in the program, please fill out the form once per student.




Join us for the Silver Springs PTA's Breakfast With A Buddy - Thursday, May 23rd and Friday, May 24th

This is a free event put on by the PTA that the students really enjoy. It's a great way to bring our families together and to show appreciation to all the 'buddies' who support Silver Springs students. We are in need of volunteers to contribute food items and we will also need several volunteers to work at the event.

Look for RSVP forms in the next Monday Envelope. Families with the last name starting A-L will come on Thursday, and families with the last name starting M-Z will come on Friday.

Any contribution or donation of time is truly appreciated!

Supporting the The 7 Habits at home!

7-Habits Take Home Activity for April

This month’s Habit: Habit 7 Sharpen the Saw

Due Date: May 31, 2019

Habit #7: Sharpen the Saw

What this means: Balance feels best. In order to maintain and increase effectiveness, we must renew ourselves in body, mind, heart and soul.

“I take care of my body by eating right, exercising, and getting sleep.”

“I find meaningful ways to help others.”

“I spend time with family and friends.”

“I learn in lots of ways and places, not just at school.”

How can I do this in my life?

1. Go for a walk.

2. Read a book.

3. Volunteer in your community.

4. Value the difference in others.
