We are excited to host the annual Salmon River Run on Wednesday, May 11 at Silver Creek School. We will begin the race with our grade 7-8’s who will run 3.6 km on the Salmon River Road trail. The grade 5-6 runners are next followed by the kindergartens, grade 1-2’s and finally, the grade 3-4 runners. Please come and cheer all of our runners on! Our hard working PAC moms will be selling pizza and the student Leadership team will be selling freezies for $1. Proceeds will go to the Red Cross Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
What a productive day we had at Silver Creek to celebrate Earth Day and promote Social Responsibility, one of the Core Competencies. Parents, students and staff picked rocks and branches, weeded the gardens, spread mulch and manure and picked up trash all over Silver Creek community and school yard. Thanks to Hillside Dreams Dairy for the goat compost and all the parents who rolled up their sleeves to help us out.
It’s the last week of January and we are thrilled to support the Literacy Alliance of the Shuswap Society (LASS) Unplug and Play event. Silver Creek teachers have created daily activities where we focus on literacy, fitness and outdoor learning. Today students are reading Robert Munsch books and participating in a Battle of the Books game to see what students know about Murmel, Murmel, Murmel, I Love You Forever, and the Paper Bag Princess, to name a few.
Tuesday we are searching the forest and playground on a scavenger hunt.
Wednesday is board games with friends.
Thursday is skating for two classes.
Friday is Outdoor stations and Super Friday Hot Lunch!
We encourage everyone to disconnect or reduce their time from technology this week and get outside, spend time with a book and family!
School resumes on Tuesday January 4, 2022. Have a wonderful holiday!
