A Message from Mrs. Booth

Dear Silver Springs Families,

It is hard to believe that we are entering the second week of May already. May always seems like the busiest month of the school year because we have so many fun activities for students and families. Last Friday, we would have held the Multi-Cultural Festival. This is one of my absolute favorite events of the entire school year! My heart was heavy knowing that this is the first time in a very long time that we were not able to come together to celebrate the diversity at Silver Springs. Next year, we will have to have an all-out celebration :)

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms, grandmothers, aunts, nieces, and caregivers! I hope that you are celebrated well today!

Stay safe and be well!

Katie Booth

Leader in Me Parent Survey

As a Leader in Me Lighthouse school we are always working to understand how we can improve.

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!

Silver Springs Elementary School offers the EduKit program as a convenient option for busy families to order school supplies for the 2020/2021 year. EduKits include the supplies approved by your school.

The Northville Council of PTAs in partnership with the middle and elementary schools are very excited about our school supply kit fundraiser ~ providing a convenient way for families to purchase school supplies for the coming school year. The school supply lists have been developed by the teachers in each grade, at each school.

Please note that the supply lists are simply suggestions of helpful items and are strictly voluntary, as Northville Public Schools provide the necessary supplies and materials for your child’s successful school experience.

Your student's order will be delivered directly to your school before the first day of school.

Extended ordering is available from June 13, 2020 - August 06, 2020 for an additional fee and will be delivered to your home shortly before school begins.



It's Kindergarten Registration Time!!!

We are currently enrolling for the 2020-2021 school year! Please let your neighbors, friends, and family know that they can still register their incoming kindergartener online!

Please visit the Northville Public Schools website for more information!

Silver Springs Playground is Closed

We completely understand that the Stay at Home order issued by our Governor during this challenging time is extremely difficult for you and our students, and that part of our being as humans is socializing with each other. As part of the order, Governor Whitmer has encouraged families and individuals to get outside, take walks, etc., but the order does not allow for large gatherings, or gatherings at parks and playgrounds, which includes on our school playgrounds.

In accordance with the Governor’s Stay Safe. Stay Home. Executive Order, and by Order of the Oakland County Health Division, Northville Public Schools has closed all of our school playgrounds and fields, including ALL play structures. Student safety and well being is at the forefront of all we do for our students both at Silver Springs and across Northville Public Schools. We are asking you to do everything you can to slow the spread. We appreciate your help in keeping each other safe and healthy.

An Invitation to Northville's "Virtual" STEAM Fair

For the safety of our school community, the 6th Annual Northville STEAM Fair was cancelled for this year. However, upon learning that many students had continued their projects, a "virtual" fair was created. Please go to http://www.northvillesteamfair.com/ to see the 20 projects that were submitted via video or presentation. They will also be featured on Northville Public School and the Northville Educational Foundation's Facebook Page. Please share so that our students can be showcased in our Northville Schools Community. Thank you to all who participated!
