Yearbook update

Our PTA cannot simply capture it all! We have a lot of activities scheduled for the rest of the school year and we need your help!

Many of the photos in our yearbooks are candid shots, captured and submitted by teachers and parents. If you have photos of your students that you would like to include in the yearbook*, please submit them to silverwoodyearbooks@gmail.com.

Please include – student name, grade, teacher, and activity/event.

*Please note that not every photo may be used.

If you would like to help with the yearbook, please email Linda Raney – silverwoodyearbooks@gmail.com

Red Ribbon Week 2022

Skyhawks, are you ready for Red Ribbon Week, starting October 23-31st (observed on-campus October 24 – 28th)?

The Nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention program, The Red Ribbon Campaign, is a great way for communities and students to unite and take a visible stand against drugs.

This year’s theme is “Celebrate Life, Live Drug Free.” Created by Emily King, Chelsea Abbott, and Celise Wicker, 7th graders at Wayland-Cohocton Middle School in Wayland, New York,  the Theme is a reminder that everyday Americans across the country make significant daily contributions to their communities by being the best they can be because they live Drug-Free!

Here are some of the ways Silverwood Elementary will be celebrating and uniting for Red Ribbon week:

National Walk to School Day – October 12

From Claycord.com 10/10/2022

The Concord Police Department encourages parents and students to join their classmates and walk or bike to school on Oct. 12.

“Walk and Roll to School Day” is celebrated annually to highlight the benefits of exercise and practice pedestrian and road safety with other students.

“Walking to school is a great way to exercise on a daily basis and feel comfortable getting to and from school safely,” Concord Police Lt. Gregory Rodriguez said. “We hope this is a fun, rewarding experience for students and members of the community that shows how important it is for everyone to be safe walking, biking or rolling.”

Concord Police offers tips for students who walk, bike, or roll to school:

  • Plan your route on roads with sidewalks or paths away from traffic. If there are no sidewalks, walk or ride as far from cars as possible, facing traffic.
  • Use crosswalks, preferably at stop signs or signals. If there are unmarked crosswalks, cross at corners on streets with fewer lanes and lower speed limits.
  • Always look left-right-left before crossing the street. Continue to scan for traffic as you cross the street.
  • Watch for cars entering/leaving driveways or parking spaces.
  • Always wear a helmet when riding or rolling.
  • Be aware of your surroundings. Keep earbud or headphone volume low enough so you can still hear around you.

Drivers should be extra careful and anticipate more foot and bike traffic the morning of Oct. 12, as well as be prepared to stop for school buses and children crossing the street. Drivers should always watch their speed and slow down in school zones.”
