Thanks to everyone who took part in our Fall fundraiser with Big Kahuna. They had some fantastic items on sale, and your goodies will be ready for pick up on Thursday, 22nd October from 4:00pm – 7:00pm. Please make sure you’re able to come and get your order during this time. All orders must be picked up on this day, the school does not have freezer space to hold any unclaimed food items. Profits from our fundraiser will help fund some of our students and teachers’ favorite programs like Field Day, AR store, teacher appreciation events and much more, so thanks again for your support! If you have any questions, please contact Maritza Wong at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fall PTA in the Park
Join us for a fun family night out at PTA in the Park sponsored by Silvercrest PTA on Thursday, October 29th from 5:30pm-7:00pm at the park next door to the school. There will be food trucks, games, contests, bounce houses and lots of fun for the entire family. If the weather decides not to cooperate, the event will be held in the school cafeteria, so make sure to come along, rain or shine! Not only is this a great event but it also raises money for our PTA programs and school resources. More information will come home in the children’s folders in October.
We love encouraging our students to enjoy reading here at Silvercrest! One of the highlights of our reading activities is our Book Fair to be held November 2nd -4th from 7:30am-2:30pm and November 5th from 7:30am – 6:30pm. This is a great opportunity for our students to buy some fantastic new books. During the weeks leading up to the Book Fair, the children will be watching a video during their class library time of this year’s highlighted books. They will also be bringing home a Book Fair flyer, so look out for this in your child’s folder. The children can then write their Book Fair wish lists of the books they would like to purchase. Your child’s teacher can let you know when their class will be visiting Book Fair.
Please note that parents cannot pull their child out of class to shop, but they are welcome to shop with their child during their class’s time at Book Fair. Alternatively, parents have the option to come in before school and shop with their child, or come after school until 6:30pm on Thursday, November 5th for the late night. This is great way for parents to share in the experience and help your child select from the huge number of titles and other items available at the Book Fair. We will also need many volunteers to help with Book Fair set-up and during the week of the event. Please contact Myra Tijerina at email@example.com for more information. Hope to see you all there!
