Dogs on School Property

Attention Silver Springs Families,

Please DO NOT bring dogs onto school property before, during, or after the school day. While many of us love pets, it is difficult to ensure the safety and well-being of our students, including those with allergies & allergic reactions, as well as children and families who are fearful of dogs. Thank you for your understanding!

Supporting the The 7 Habits at home!

7 Habits at Home Activity for November

This month’s Habit: Habit 1 Be Proactive

Activity: Circle of Control

Due Date: November 30th


Habit 1 – Be Proactive – “I’m in Charge of Me”

What this means: Take charge of your own life. Make it happen. Don't wait for someone else to do it.


“I am responsible for me.”

“I do the right thing before I am asked.”

“I do the right thing even when no one is looking.”

“I do not blame others for my actions.”


How can I do this in my life?

1. If you do something wrong, say you are sorry before someone asks you to apologize.

2. When you get mad and want to say something, stop, think, and ask yourself-

Why am I getting so angry? Make a good choice in a good way.


Great Books for Habit #1- Be Proactive

  • The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds
  • Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst
  • Because of Winn Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
  • The Little Engine that Could by Watty Piper
  • Amazing Grace by Mary Hoffman
  • Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun by Maria Dismondy
