IMPORTANT BUS INFORMATION

Attached you will find a MS Word Document that reiterates to parents that student bus passes are required to be stored and kept in a safe place over the summer to avoid their loss, and the subsequent cost of a replacement pass.  In addition, the letter also talks about the implementation of Zpass+, a notification system which sends time and location messages via phone text to parents when their student scans on and off the bus. This is a great program that provides another level of safety and security for the students of SVVSD.  Parents are truly going to love this new functionality. The system is currently active and ready for parents to sign up for an account and begin receiving these valuable text notifications.

Z Pass+ information – In an effort to better serve you, we are implementing a program called Z Pass+ this year.  This free program will allow parents to receive text and/or email notifications via their smartphone whenever their student scans on or off the bus.  This technology is invaluable, and provides an additional layer of safety and security for District students utilizing transportation services. The following link has directions on how to sign up.

Please open the following link for more important bus information.

RAPTOR RUN—RUN IT!

 

Hot off the press! Silver Creek students, faculty and staff will receive 50% off the registration fee for the Raptor Run AND a t-shirt. Ask for the code at the office. Register by April 18 at https://raptorrun5k.com or on race day!

 

Now for the details. RABC’s second major fundraiser, the Raptor Run, is fast approaching. This fun family event will take place on April 21, 2018 at 9 am in the neighborhoods around Silver Creek. This year’s race is a Bolder Boulder qualifier, and it is great for kids as the course does not cross a single street! If you can’t run or walk this year’s event, please consider donating (see next section).

RAPTOR RUN—SPRING CLEANING

If you can’t participate in the Raptor Run this year, we get it. But, you can still help raise funds to support teams and kids here at Silver Creek and do some spring cleaning at the same time. If you are anything like me, you have gift cards lying around. Put those unused gift cards to good use! Donate them to RABC for age group prizes for the Raptor Run. Please put them (minimum value $10 to $15, maximum value is up to you) in an envelope, mark “Raptor Run Race Director” on the front, and drop them at the office. Don’t have gift cards lying around, please consider buying a gift card or asking a local business to donate one (again, minimum value $10-$15).

THANK YOU

Thanks to all the folks who donated their time and gift cards to make After-Prom a success and to keep our Silver Creek students safe. And, thank you to everyone who turned out to hear Dr. Stephen Walker’s talk. I think we all agree that we learned a lot!

VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION EVENT

RABC along with SCOPA and the Education Foundation, will be hosting a volunteer appreciation event in early May. Details to come!

CONCESSIONS MANAGERS

We are still in desperate need of Concessions Managers or we will not be able to open the stand for some events. Teams will each lose $175 for their shift if Concessions cannot open. It is really easy, just follow a complete list of instructions. You can even watch most of the games/matches/meets/duals while earning $25 for your team or activity. If you can help, please contact SCConcessions01@gmail.com.

IMPORTANT BUS INFORMATION

Attached you will find a MS Word Document that reiterates to parents that student bus passes are required to be stored and kept in a safe place over the summer to avoid their loss, and the subsequent cost of a replacement pass.  In addition, the letter also talks about the implementation of Zpass+, a notification system which sends time and location messages via phone text to parents when their student scans on and off the bus. This is a great program that provides another level of safety and security for the students of SVVSD.  Parents are truly going to love this new functionality. The system is currently active and ready for parents to sign up for an account and begin receiving these valuable text notifications.

Z Pass+ information – In an effort to better serve you, we are implementing a program called Z Pass+ this year.  This free program will allow parents to receive text and/or email notifications via their smartphone whenever their student scans on or off the bus.  This technology is invaluable, and provides an additional layer of safety and security for District students utilizing transportation services. The following link has directions on how to sign up.

Please open the following link for more important bus information.

    Important Bus Pass Information for Parents of Students Riding the Bus     

Students only receive one free bus pass.  For a replacement pass, please contact the Bus Pass coordinator by sending an email to bus pass@svvsd.org or calling 303-702-7540.  The replacement cost for lost, stolen and/or mutilated bus passes is $5.00 and shows up as fee under your student’s name in Infinite Campus.  New students to the district or new to riding the bus may pick up their bus passes at the Main Office of the school they will be attending.

Congratulations Mathletes

On Saturday, March 3, eight of our students participated in the Mathworks Mathematical Modeling Challenge.  They spent 14 hours working on crafting a viable solution to the problem of re-allocating “lost” food in the food production system to the food-insecure population and discussing/creating other ways to reduce food waste.  In the process, they created a report that could be no longer than 20 pages long. They formed two teams – Paxton Lee, Emma Lilly, Jet Rostykus, Max Ruiz and Madeline Culwell, Ashlyn Kofford, Alakh Patel, Aidan Rooney.

One of the two teams just learned their paper has advanced to the second round of judging  (Jet Rostykus, Emma Lilly, Max Ruiz, and Paxton Lee). They will find out next week if they make “Honorable Mention” or “The Top 6”.  Only 20% of the papers submitted nation-wide earned the distinction of moving on to the second round.

IMPORTANT BUS INFORMATION

Attached you will find a MS Word Document that reiterates to parents that student bus passes are required to be stored and kept in a safe place over the summer to avoid their loss, and the subsequent cost of a replacement pass.  In addition, the letter also talks about the implementation of Zpass+, a notification system which sends time and location messages via phone text to parents when their student scans on and off the bus. This is a great program that provides another level of safety and security for the students of SVVSD.  Parents are truly going to love this new functionality. The system is currently active and ready for parents to sign up for an account and begin receiving these valuable text notifications.

Z Pass+ information – In an effort to better serve you, we are implementing a program called Z Pass+ this year.  This free program will allow parents to receive text and/or email notifications via their smartphone whenever their student scans on or off the bus.  This technology is invaluable, and provides an additional layer of safety and security for District students utilizing transportation services. The following link has directions on how to sign up.

Please open the following link for more important bus information.

2018-2019 Registration Information for ALL students

     For: classes of 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022

  • Elective registration is Feb. 20 and March 2. – Don’t miss it!

    • Go into your IC account. On the left side of the screen, directly under your student name, a link entitled “Course Registration for 18-19” will appear.

    • When you click on this link, 3 boxes will appear:

      • (1) Required courses: this box contain all the recommended core classes, any audition or special program classes…such as SCLA, CDC, AP, Bella, Advanced Jazz, etc.

      • (2) Requested courses: This is where your elective selection will go. These are the elective courses that you want to take.

      • (3) Alternate courses: These are the courses that you want to take if one of the requested courses does not fit.

        • IMPORTANT – be sure to pick elective courses…if not, we chose them for you! Every year we have students who do not do this, and for many of them, they are put in a class that they did not want simply because they did not choose any alternatives.

        • You really need 6, but 8 is even better!

    • To input a selection there is a bar that extends across the page about 1/4th of the way down with different tabs. Look for the “Course Selection” tab. When you click on this tab, the box to input your course numbers will appear.

    • How do you know when you have enough courses? If you look at the first box, Required Course, you will see two numbers sitting at the top of the box.

      • For freshman and sophomores, you need to enter requested courses until it reads 16/16.

      • For juniors and seniors, you need to enter requested courses until it read 12/16. You can have more, but it must read 12/16.

    • The easiest way to prepare is to have the course number of the classes that you would like to enter ready.

    • It is also important for students to verify their classes at this time…if they disagree with any recommendation, they can fill out an appeal (found on the registration site – link provided above) and submit it during the Feb. 20 – March 2 window.

    • If students to not select electives on or before March 2, classes will be selected for them.

IMPORTANT BUS INFORMATION

Attached you will find a MS Word Document that reiterates to parents that student bus passes are required to be stored and kept in a safe place over the summer to avoid their loss, and the subsequent cost of a replacement pass.  In addition, the letter also talks about the implementation of Zpass+, a notification system which sends time and location messages via phone text to parents when their student scans on and off the bus.  This is a great program that provides another level of safety and security for the students of SVVSD.  Parents are truly going to love this new functionality.  The system is currently active and ready for parents to sign up for an account and begin receiving these valuable text notifications.

Z Pass+ information – In an effort to better serve you, we are implementing a program called Z Pass+ this year.  This free program will allow parents to receive text and/or email notifications via their smartphone whenever their student scans on or off the bus.  This technology is invaluable, and provides an additional layer of safety and security for District students utilizing transportation services.  The following link has directions on how to sign up.

Please open the following link for more important bus information.

    Important Bus Pass Information for Parents of Students Riding the Bus     

Students only receive one free bus pass.  For a replacement pass, please contact the Bus Pass coordinator by sending an email to bus pass@svvsd.org or calling 303-702-7540.  The replacement cost for lost, stolen and/or mutilated bus passes is $5.00 and shows up as fee under your student’s name in Infinite Campus.  New students to the district or new to riding the bus may pick up their bus passes at the Main Office of the school they will be attending.

Speech and Debate State Qualifiers!

We had our Speech and Debate state qualifying tournament on Saturday and we are very pleased to report that we had three Public Forum Debate Teams go undefeated (4 – 0) and qualify for state. Debaters must win 3 of the 4 rounds to go to state, but to have all three teams win all four rounds is pretty special!

The teams are:

Riley Hinklin and Colista Bird

Richard Keck and Thomas Hight

Elizabeth Reitzig and Abi Lange

In addition, Katie Lam was top qualifier in Original Oratory. Being top qualifier grants her first round “protection” meaning she will not have any other top qualifiers in her first round of competition.

Needless to say, the students and we were very excited! The state competition is March 16 – 17 at Rocky Mountain High School in Ft. Collins.

 

 

 

 

Host A foreign Exchange Student

Silver Creek High School has had the pleasure of having foreign exchange students from all over the world attend and participate in the our school.  We are looking for families to host students for the upcoming school year for a semester or school year.  Exchange students offer first hand knowledge of cultures and customs from their country.  By having students from other countries participate in education and conversation we are able to offer more to our students and families. The relationships that are formed with the host families and  peers can make a lasting  impact on the student and the community. If you are interested in learning more please feel free to contact Debbie Odom at Exchangeofheartinfo@gmail.com or 303-532-6577

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Student Drop Off

There have been quite a few safety concerns regarding student drop off and pick ups in undesignated areas. Please drop off and pick up your students in the main parking lot in the designated areas. Handicapped spaces should not be used as a drop off space or waiting area. No students are allowed to park in the back of the school.  With increased construction, we ask that you use extreme caution when in the back parking area.

Please DO NOT use the staff parking lot and delivery entrance at the back of the school (in red on the picture below) to drop off or pick up students.

Please do not stop your car or do U turns in the red section in the picture. Stopping here impedes the traffic flow of cars coming off of Nelson Rd. and is unsafe for all coming in and out of this driveway. Do not block the entrance to the staff and delivery entrance.  Please help us with this area.  This year we have more employees and service deliveries due to being a regional kitchen.  Additionally, the school is open at 6:45 AM and students may use the library after school until 3:30 PM.  Thank you.

IMPORTANT BUS INFORMATION

Attached you will find a MS Word Document that reiterates to parents that student bus passes are required to be stored and kept in a safe place over the summer to avoid their loss, and the subsequent cost of a replacement pass.  In addition, the letter also talks about the implementation of Zpass+, a notification system which sends time and location messages via phone text to parents when their student scans on and off the bus.  This is a great program that provides another level of safety and security for the students of SVVSD.  Parents are truly going to love this new functionality.  The system is currently active and ready for parents to sign up for an account and begin receiving these valuable text notifications.

Z Pass+ information – In an effort to better serve you, we are implementing a program called Z Pass+ this year.  This free program will allow parents to receive text and/or email notifications via their smartphone whenever their student scans on or off the bus.  This technology is invaluable, and provides an additional layer of safety and security for District students utilizing transportation services.  The following link has directions on how to sign up.

Please open the following link for more important bus information.

    Important Bus Pass Information for Parents of Students Riding the Bus     

Students only receive one free bus pass.  For a replacement pass, please contact the Bus Pass coordinator by sending an email to bus pass@svvsd.org or calling 303-702-7540.  The replacement cost for lost, stolen and/or mutilated bus passes is $5.00 and shows up as fee under your student’s name in Infinite Campus.  New students to the district or new to riding the bus may pick up their bus passes at the Main Office of the school they will be attending.

Los estudiantes que tienen 18 años y están por graduar de preparatoria podrían ser elegibles para obtener SEGURO MÉDICO GRATUITO O A BAJO PRECIO hasta que cumplan 19 años!  Este seguro médico es proporcionado por parte de los programas del gobierno Medicaid y CHP+.  Cuando un joven cumple 18 años y no está asistiendo a la escuela, Medicaid no toma en cuenta el ingreso de los padres!

Host A Foreign Exchange Student

Silver Creek High School has had the pleasure of having foreign exchange students from all over the world attend and participate in the our school.  We are looking for families to host students for the upcoming school year for a semester or school year.  Exchange students offer first hand knowledge of cultures and customs from their country.  By having students from other countries participate in education and conversation we are able to offer more to our students and families. The relationships that are formed with the host families and  peers can make a lasting  impact on the student and the community. If you are interested in learning more please feel free to contact Debbie Odom at Exchangeofheartinfo@gmail.com or 303-532-6577

 

 

 

 

 

 

Student Drop Off

There have been quite a few safety concerns regarding student drop off and pick ups in undesignated areas. Please drop off and pick up your students in the main parking lot in the designated areas. Handicapped spaces should not be used as a drop off space or waiting area. No students are allowed to park in the back of the school.  With increased construction, we ask that you use extreme caution when in the back parking area.

Please DO NOT use the staff parking lot and delivery entrance at the back of the school (in red on the picture below) to drop off or pick up students.

 

Please do not stop your car or do U turns in the red section in the picture. Stopping here impedes the traffic flow of cars coming off of Nelson Rd. and is unsafe for all coming in and out of this driveway. Do not block the entrance to the staff and delivery entrance.  Please help us with this area.  This year we have more employees and service deliveries due to being a regional kitchen.  Additionally, the school is open at 6:45 AM and students may use the library after school until 3:30 PM.  Thank you

We are in desperate need of Concessions Managers or we will not be able to open the stand for some events. Teams will each lose $175 for their shift if Concessions cannot open. It is really easy, just follow a complete list of instructions. You can even watch most of the games/matches/meets/duals while earning $25 for your team or activity. If you can help, please contact  SCCONCESSIONS01@GMAIL.COM.

 

OTHER WAYS TO HELP

Sponsor, volunteer or run the Raptor Run on 4/21/18. This event supports RABC and thus sports and activities here at Silver Creek. This year it will be a Bolder Boulder qualifier. It is a great family event, so everyone put your running shoes on and get training together!

IMPORTANT BUS INFORMATION

Attached you will find a MS Word Document that reiterates to parents that student bus passes are required to be stored and kept in a safe place over the summer to avoid their loss, and the subsequent cost of a replacement pass.  In addition, the letter also talks about the implementation of Zpass+, a notification system which sends time and location messages via phone text to parents when their student scans on and off the bus.  This is a great program that provides another level of safety and security for the students of SVVSD.  Parents are truly going to love this new functionality.  The system is currently active and ready for parents to sign up for an account and begin receiving these valuable text notifications.

Z Pass+ information – In an effort to better serve you, we are implementing a program called Z Pass+ this year.  This free program will allow parents to receive text and/or email notifications via their smartphone whenever their student scans on or off the bus.  This technology is invaluable, and provides an additional layer of safety and security for District students utilizing transportation services.  The following link has directions on how to sign up.

Please open the following link for more important bus information.

Students only receive one free bus pass.  For a replacement pass, please contact the Bus Pass coordinator by sending an email to bus pass@svvsd.org or calling 303-702-7540.  The replacement cost for lost, stolen and/or mutilated bus passes is $5.00 and shows up as fee under your student’s name in Infinite Campus.  New students to the district or new to riding the bus may pick up their bus passes at the Main Office of the school they will be attending.
