A Message from Mrs. Booth

Dear Silver Springs Families,

I can't believe that we are already planning for the last 3 weeks of school. I am so thankful for the beautiful weather this weekend. It was such a nice surprise to wake up to the sun shining and the rain that was forecasted!

I hope that you are able to sharpen the saw and rest, relax, and rejuvenate.

Stay safe and be well!

Katie Booth



Student Belongings Pick-Up

Please be on the lookout for an email next week that will detail the plan for you to pick-up your child(ren)'s belongs the first week in June. During that time you can pick-up anything your child(ren) may have left behind at school. You can also drop off library books, text books, safety belts, etc.


Art to Remember - Update

Dear Silver Springs families who have students who participated in the Art to Remember fundraiser and had turned in artwork. We were unable to send the Order Forms home with those students who did participate but you are still able to place an order for Keepsakes.

Due to the Stay at Home Order, Art to Remember has paused their order fulfillment operations, so shipping your keepsake products will take longer than normal. You can still order keepsakes during this time and help raise money for our school.

If you would like to place an order for products you may do so by creating an account on the website at arttoremember.com. This is a great way to save, organize, and share all the art you have at home.

If you do not already have an account through the website you need to sign up for one. Once you have created an account it will ask for the School name and Student’s name, then you will be able to view your student’s art and the different keepsakes to choose from.

Our apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused for those of you who had planned to give these as gifts. We appreciate your understanding and patience during these uncertain times. As always the SS PTA thanks you for your support and we wish you all well!


Leader in Me Parent Survey

As a Leader in Me Lighthouse school we are always working to understand how we can improve. Please complete the survey below as part of an annual assessment to help all members of the school community (students, parents, and the adults who work at the school) understand how we're doing. Your responses will provide us with important information to help us become even better. All of your responses are completely anonymous. The survey should take you approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. Please try to respond to all items. Thank you!

Silver Springs Elementary School offers the EduKit program as a convenient option for busy families to order school supplies for the 2020/2021 year. EduKits include the supplies approved by your school.

The Northville Council of PTAs in partnership with the middle and elementary schools are very excited about our school supply kit fundraiser ~ providing a convenient way for families to purchase school supplies for the coming school year. The school supply lists have been developed by the teachers in each grade, at each school.

Please note that the supply lists are simply suggestions of helpful items and are strictly voluntary, as Northville Public Schools provide the necessary supplies and materials for your child’s successful school experience.

Your student's order will be delivered directly to your school before the first day of school.

Extended ordering is available from June 13, 2020 - August 06, 2020 for an additional fee and will be delivered to your home shortly before school begins.



It's Kindergarten Registration Time!!!

We are currently enrolling for the 2020-2021 school year! Please let your neighbors, friends, and family know that they can still register their incoming kindergartener online!

Silver Springs Playground is Closed

We completely understand that the Stay at Home order issued by our Governor during this challenging time is extremely difficult for you and our students, and that part of our being as humans is socializing with each other. As part of the order, Governor Whitmer has encouraged families and individuals to get outside, take walks, etc., but the order does not allow for large gatherings, or gatherings at parks and playgrounds, which includes on our school playgrounds.

In accordance with the Governor’s Stay Safe. Stay Home. Executive Order, and by Order of the Oakland County Health Division, Northville Public Schools has closed all of our school playgrounds and fields, including ALL play structures. Student safety and well being is at the forefront of all we do for our students both at Silver Springs and across Northville Public Schools. We are asking you to do everything you can to slow the spread. We appreciate your help in keeping each other safe and healthy.
