Silver Gate Events This Week

December 1st, 2020

Welcome back everyone!

I hope you all had an enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday and break, and are feeling refreshed and ready to dive back into learning for the next three weeks. That's right, we only have three weeks until our next break, so let's make them count! Getting back into the routine of school after a break takes a little getting used to during typical years, so I imagine getting back on Zoom might be a challenge. However, I can assure you that the entire Silver Gate Staff is excited to see everyone back on Zoom tomorrow morning!

Math Workshop

Math helps us have better problem-solving skills and have better reasoning abilities in math and real life applications. San Diego Unified's Family Engagement Department will present a math workshop for grades preK-5th to support families at home. This presentation is Thursday, December 3, from 5:15-6:30pm. The goal is to help you understand what Number Talks are in order to help your child make sense of numbers and solve word problems. If possible, we encourage you to bring your children during this Zoom workshop designed for families.


More details are on our Family Engagement website calendar at SDUSDfamilies.org.

Please join us for this Zoom session on Number Talks.

I'M Glad You're Here!

I always kick off the year by showing this video to the students to let them know I'm Glad they are at Silver Gate. At the end of every Monday Morning Assembly, I ask everyone to turn to their neighbor and say " I 'm Glad You're Here!
