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.

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 smart phone 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.

Booster Club’s 4th Season of Dancing with the Silver Creek Stars fundraiser this past Saturday was simply a wonderful event!

Our Emcee’s, Erick Finnestead and Michelle Wright

        

 

Personally, I cannot  find strong enough words to say how much I appreciate everyone who helped to make this event the most successful one yet!  I will not be able to mention everyone individually for fear of forgetting someone, but you know who you are and I do as well, and I thank you!  We had the most wonderful parents who went above and beyond to gather sponsorships and silent auction items for this event.  We were able to bring in over $2000 in sponsorships and over $7000 for our silent auction items for our programs.  THANK YOU – we could not have done this without you!!

The day of the event, we had the best group of volunteers show up to help us set up and decorate.  What a blessing each one of these people were!  THANK YOU for taking time out of your day to help in this way!

Later that day/night, we had several more volunteers step in to help throughout the event in different places – check in, auction supervisors, hostesses, voter counters, clean up, etc.  Again, THANK YOU, we could not have done it without you.

AND, to everyone who attended the event and voted by your donations that night or online – THANK YOU!!  You helped raised over $7000 for our programs!

I do want to put a shout out to these key people and let them know their time is valuable and we appreciate them sharing some of it with us!!

  • The Silver Creek Coaches: Jason Lathrop, Mike Kisor, Rob Johnson, Karen Greenert, Jacy Riel, Tatum McKenzie, and David Henderson

  • The PCDC Dancers and Owner: Stephanie Odenbach, Lauralyn Voigt, Sammy Nelson, Jordan Metzler, Sami Nowlin, Miranda Noonan, and Sierra Serrette

  • Our Emcee’s for the evening: Erick Finnestead and Michelle Wright

  • Our Silent Auction Coordinator Extraordinaire: Suzanne Zens

  • Our Caterers: Goodfella’s – Jeff Price, Melanie Klein, and staff

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 smart phone 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.

Creating Connections

My name is Avery Sands, this year I am a senior in the Silver Creek Leadership Academy. I currently am building a program that integrates police officers with kids.

My program is called Creating Connections and I need participants! It’s is a five month long program, twice a month. It will be held the first and third Thursday of each month. It will be a fun way to get to interact and learn about the world of law enforcement.

We will be doing a multitude of different activities including: watching a movie, making gingerbread houses, going bowling, and tye-dying shirts. Along with the fun activities we will have many opportunities to communicate and understand the lives of law enforcement. This will also give the police officers the opportunity to learn more about high schoolers and how to better relate to them when working in the field. There will be food and games at every meeting.

Our first meeting is coming up fast, it’s an informational and sign up meeting. It will be held on November 2nd at the parks and open space building in Longmont (St. Vrain Complex in Longmont …Boulder County Parks & Open Space Building, 5201 St. Vrain Rd, Longmont, 80503). This will be a time where you can bring parents, friends, and siblings to see what this program is all about and sign up!

I am looking for 10-15 participants and I will have a two to one ratio with the police officers.

I am extremely excited about this program and I can’t wait to see all of you on November 2nd!

Please feel free to email, call or text me with any comments or questions. I would love to be notified if you will be attending the first meeting so feel free to contact me at any time! Aery Sands: project manager Email: Sands.avery16@svvsd.org  Phone: 303-818-2659

Thank you so much!

1000 Paper Cranes

Our mini capstone project this semester is focused on making the community at Silver Creek High School more empathetic and more supportive. We have been going to classes at Silver Creek and delivering an Anti-Bullying/Pro-Supportive presentation to the students. What makes our project unique and more fun compared to other presentations, is we having the students write a goal on a piece of paper on how they will impact Silver Creek’s community in a positive way. Those pieces of paper they wrote on, then, will be folded into a paper crane that will hang in the school library. Our goal is to have 1000 paper cranes folded by the end of our project. At the moment we have over 500 paper cranes folded. We are also allowing the students at Silver Creek to earn some volunteer hours by giving them one hour of volunteer work once they have folded 20 paper cranes (the drop box is in room E102).  

Thanks,

Do you have an iPod you no longer use? Donate it to Collect to Connect! Hi we are Lucy Scott, Kate Eggen, and Maya Amidon and for our Mini-Capstone project we are running an iPod drive throughout November in Silver Creek High School and Altona Middle School.  We are working with the Music & Memory organization to help people who suffer from Alzheimer’s to find renewed meaning and connection in their lives through personalized music.   This music taps into deep memories that have not been completely lost to Alzheimer’s, bringing participants back to life and enabling them to feel like themselves again!  Donate your old iPod today to help make this connection happen!  Check out our flyer and bring your iPod to the front office.

  • Each teacher will receive a dinner compliments of Village at the Peaks, have their name displayed at Village at the Peaks, and have their picture and information on the school’s website.

  • Once pictures are taken, the pictures and information will be available next week.

  • Thank you to everyone who nominated a teacher. All nominees are honored and recognized on the school website.

  • And, a special thanks to Village of the Peaks for their partnership and support!

              Student of the Month for November:

Nominated by SCHS staff – one student from each grade chosen

Criteria…goes far beyond normal job expectations, exhibits excellence in the classroom and out of the classroom, contributes leadership, and exhibits dedication to SCHS.

  • Each student will receive a movie and dinner compliments of Village at the Peaks, have their name and picture displayed at Village at the Peaks, and have their picture and information on the school’s website.

  • Once pictures are taken, the pictures and information will be available next week.

  • And, a special thanks to Village of the Peaks for their partnership and support!

Teacher Attendance Drawing for November:

  • Special thanks to the following contributors: Chik-fil-A (a lunch), Parry’s Pizza, Math Department, and King Soopers

  • The number one indicator of success in a classroom is an effective teacher every day, so a huge shout out to our teachers! 80% of our teachers had qualifying attendance…missing no more than 1 day or any part of 1 day.

Student Attendance Drawing for November:

Link to the Silver Creek Positive Attendance Program: LINK

  • Special thanks to the following contributors: Chik-fil-A (a week of Chik-fil-A), Parry’s Pizza (a free pizza), and Regal Movie Theatre (a movie pass)

  • Students will have their picture taken and displayed on our Silver Creek Website.

  • The second indicator – extremely close to an effective teacher every day (some argue it is the number one indicator)  is student attendance…”Every class. Every day.”

    • Qualifying attendance: missing a class, not more than one time – excused and/or unexcused.

  • Attendance is vital to student learning – Although assignments can be made up, the actual face-to-face dialogue, teacher direct instruction and feedback, and peer interaction cannot be duplicated.
