Silver Gate Elementary
Week of November 2, 2020
Mindful Moment of the Month
With a hopeful outlook, Silver Gate Elementary staff, students, and families promise to fulfill the terms of The Gratitude Challenge. Over the next 4 weeks, we pledge to complete the gratitude activities.
We promise to take note of life’s little blessings and to give thanks for the relationships, experiences and opportunities that make my life unique. From this day forward, we commit to living on the brighter side of life.
UPDATE - Federal Impact Aid Survey 2020-21
Updated Information: The 2020-2021 Federal Impact Aid Survey mailing has been delayed. This school year the survey will be distributed via the United States Postal Service (USPS) along with a postage paid envelope in order for you to return the survey directly to the Impact Aid Office at the district. This is very important for Silver Gate Elementary, as each year the district earns a significant amount of income which can be used for any general fund purpose such as instructional materials, salaries, transportation, technology, or capital needs. Please be on the lookout!
