A Message from Mrs. Booth

We have had the VERY BEST first week of school! Our halls and classrooms were filled with so many smiles and so much laughter! We have been working hard on routines, procedures, and building our class communities this week.


We are getting closer and closer to our building updates being complete. We are looking forward to sharing them with you next week at Open House.


Thank you for sharing your children with us!


Be well,

Katie Booth

Silver Springs Return to School Plan for Families

To help you understand our procedures for returning to school this year, this was created to provide you awareness of the many things we are doing this year to keep our students safe. This is also something that you could share with your child(ren) as well!


We hope that you find it helpful!

Video: How to Merge


To ensure the car loop works efficiently, effectively and safely we need you to do the following:

  1. Form TWO lanes as you enter the parking lot, to keep cars off Silver Springs Drive.
  2. MERGE alternating lanes when you approach the dumpsters. Please watch this video: How to Merge


  3. Pull ALL THE WAY forward in the drop off/pick up lane..
  4. Try to stay BUMPER TO BUMPER in the loop, don’t leave space between cars.


Thank you for your grace and patience as everyone learns the proper procedures for utilizing our loop.

What is the Silver Springs PTA?

Simply, the PTA is a group of parents that have organized to work to help children thrive

and learn — that means fundraising, educating parents, helping teachers/staff,

advocating for legislation to ensure every child gets a high-quality education, and

organizing activities in our school community. We hope each family and teacher joins

our PTA to show commitment and support to our PTA and all the things we provide for

Silver Springs.


Invest In Your Child

The Silver Springs PTA is looking forward to many activities planned this year! To fund

all the school activities and functions, we need your family to make a generous donation

to support our Silver Springs PTA. You do not need to be a PTA member to make a

donation. 100% of your tax-deductible donation goes directly back to our students and

Silver Springs.

Grade K-3 ROBOTICS is ready to sign up.!!!!!!!!!

We are excited to start a new Robotic season. The theme for the season is CARGO CONNECT

The cost is $65 per kid and we will meet on TUE 6-7pm from end of September until December


Parents, this program will be run by volunteer parent coaches for our students.There will be some challenges and problems to solve but the goal is to make this a fun and exciting experience for your student. FIRST requires for each team 2 parent volunteers. FIRST calls these coaches. We need 2 coaches per team of 4 kids. Don't worry about WEDO 2.0, what will be used to "program" the LEGO robot will be controlled by an app. It's really simple. There aren't any formal programming skills required. Just the fun of letting kids play with LEGOs and to solve the challenge.


Our final build will be displayed in December during the FIRST ROBOTIC EXPO. The exact dates for the EXPO will be posted by FIRST in October. We are planning to join an EXPO in the area around.

COVID Safety and Mitigation Plans

As we come together in learning this year, it is important to remember to perform at-home self-monitoring using the COVID-19 Daily Student Symptom Screening Tool. This screener serves as a daily reminder that children who are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 (or ANY illness) need to stay home from school. This is an important measure that will help prevent or reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our schools. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation in using this screener each school day. In addition to the daily screener students and staff are required to wear masks while indoors.

The NPS 2021-22 COVID-19 General Mitigation Response Plan outlines the multiple layers of COVID-19 safety measures being implemented across the district to support the health and safety of all students and staff. School principals will share specific building procedures with families. Processes are in place at each school to teach and/or reinforce safety measures with all students. The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document answers additional questions you may have as you and your child are preparing for the start of the 2021-22 school year.

*************************************************************

School Lunch Program

The Northville Public Schools provides a hot lunch program for interested students.


Families must preorder lunches for preschools and elementary students. Orders must be in by 8am for preschools students and 9 am for elementary students to receive a lunch that day. The system will not allow you to order after the time listed above. For your convenience, meals can be preordered up to 30 days in advance. To avoid any issues, we recommend ordering the night before.
