Comet Connection

Keeping you connected with Silver City ES!

Admin Universe

Students and parents, you are doing an amazing job keeping up with all the online assignments and assessments that your teachers have been providing you over the past 5 days. We know this extended online learning experience has taken some getting used to, but keep working hard and pushing through! You've got this!

Remember your teachers are here to help you every step of the way so constant communication with them is critical to your success over the course of these three weeks leading up to Spring Break. Our expectation is that you are:

  1. participating in class meetings via Google Meets (or whatever other platform your teacher uses),
  2. signing up for one-on-one conferences with your teachers,
  3. completing all assignments and assessments, and
  4. turning in all the work that is assigned.

The assignments that are being given right now will go towards your Q4 report card, so they are not optional. If, at any point, you have questions or need help, contact your homeroom teacher and they will assist in any way they can.

We are all working together to help make these online learning days as successful as possible and keeping you on track with the standards that need to be mastered by the end of your current grade level. We can and will do this TOGETHER!

Providing a Galaxy of Support

Need a Chromebook? If you still are in need of a chromebook or hot spot, please reach out to your child's homeroom teacher and let them know, as well as our ITS, Mr. Smith, at We still have chromebooks available, so if you need one you can pick one up between 8:00-11:30am any day next week.

Upcoming Events

As you know, there are many upcoming events that have been cancelled due to school closures and the disruption to our everyday lives. As we make plans for these events, we will communicate them to you. Here's what we know about some of these events:

  • Aladdin Jr. Performances - we are hopeful we can reschedule these, but we are unsure of the dates at this time
  • Comet Classes - we will finish the last week of these classes once we return to school and that will be communicated out
  • Book Fair - we are seeing if there is an online option for this that we can offer if we are not able to reschedule it
  • Georgia Milestones Testing - based on the news we heard today from the State School Superintendent, Richard Woods, "Educators, parents, and students can expect that no state testing – to include Georgia Milestones, GAA 2.0, and GKIDS – will be administered in Georgia this year."
