Silverdale News

Week of 3/2

Leadership Day and Seuss Week were a success!

This past week was our fourth grade spelling bee. Congratulations to Justin Mendoza, he will be moving on to the county spelling bee to represent Silverdale on Thursday, March 8, at Parkwood Elementary beginning at 6:30pm. Good luck Justin!

Thank you to the many parents who came out on Thursday morning to help us practice for Leadership Day. Our students worked out all of the kinks before our big day and this wouldn't have been possible without the parents' help.

Over 300 people came out for Seuss Night! Stations were set up across campus to reinforce our 7 habits and students had fun making items like bookmarks, estimating, cookies, and fun hats, to name a few.

Friday was our biggest day of the year, Leadership Day! We had many community members join us, including the Sheriff Hans Miller and our local Board of Education members, Earl Taylor, Paul Wiggins, and Bob Williams. We also had many members from Swansboro Methodist Church to join us. Students highlighted their clubs from this year, led tours across campus, shared their data notebooks, and performed for the group. Students across our school made all of the decorations used throughout the day. We are thankful for the support from our community.

Jump Rope for Heart Celebration


If your child raised $5 or more for Jump Rope for Heart, we will celebrate on Monday with K-2 in the multipurpose room from 2:20-3:00. You may join your child for this. Grades 3-5 will celebrate on Tuesday, same time, same place. Please join them if you would like and thank you for helping make this Jump Rope for Heart a success.

Read-a-Thon runs through March 29

We will be holding a Read-a-Thon through the month of March to encourage students to read independently. They are asked to find sponsors and the one who raises the most money will win a brand new bicycle! There will also be incentives such as a pizza party and ice cream party for high participation (specific details next week).
