Silver Creek High School

Weekly Update for Friday, March 23rd

Update from the Principal

Dear Parents,

If there was ever a great cause to help support the safety of Silver Creek students, our annual After Prom event is surely that cause.  After Prom provides a supervised party at school for all juniors and seniors (and their prom dates) following the prom dance.  Juniors and Seniors who don’t attend prom are also welcome.

For several years the Raptor Activity Booster Club, Silver Creek parents and staff have volunteered to provide a safe and enticing alternative to unsupervised prom parties which can lead to the kind of tragedies none of us wants. Running an event like After Prom obviously requires money for food and prizes,  and it requires many adult volunteers.

Besides money (checks payable to RABC can be turned into Lois Davis at the front desk) or prize donations (these can even be gift cards to any restaurant and/or store), RABC is also looking for parents who can stay awake from midnight to 3:00 a.m.  If you’ve ever wanted to work in a casino as a dealer, this is your chance.  If you simply can’t shuffle, we also need people to work at the prize tables and the snack bar.

Any party can also use cookies, brownies, soda, sports drinks, bottled water…  Please contact RABC President, Annie Simboski, to volunteer or inquire further about donations.  She can be reached at: presidentrabc@gmail.com  or Annie Simboski  720.308.2331.  Please use the attached form for donations.  It has the Booster tax information on it.  We will send a thank you card for each donation.  Parents may donate too!  Thanks in advance for helping to make this a fun and safe venue for the students after the Prom.   Tax Form

Thank you for helping in any way you can to keep Silver Creek’s prom a glamorous, memorable and safe event.

Sincerely,
Erick Finnestead
Principal, Silver Creek High School

After Prom

Thanks for the great response for volunteers.  It is going to be a fun night/morning!  There are still spots left to volunteer.  You will want to participate…..it will be the place to be!!!!  Now, we are concentrating on prizes.  If you would like to make a financial or prize donation, please give it to Lois Davis, receptionist.  A tax receipt will be sent to you. If you have any questions, contact Annie Simboski:  720.308.2331 or presidentRABC@gmail.com

A True Story of Teen Driving Tragedy and Recovery

On April 3 we will be hosting Tyler Presnell to speak to our student body.  Tyler is a motivational speaker for every young driver in the United States.  His devotion stems from a nearly fatal crash that he, his twin brother, younger sister and another passenger were in involving a newly licensed 16 year-year-old driver.  Tyler speaks of the impacts on his family, his lifelong recovery, the subsequent pain and what it’s like to live with 80% of his short term memory gone.  After hearing his hour-long dynamic presentation with power powerpoint and video your student will drive with more consideration and be more empowered as passengers to get out of unsafe situations in a vehicle.  To learn more about this presentation please visit www.tylerpresnell.org .

They have educational programs here in the states which generate support for the economic and educational development programs on the ground in northern Uganda and the Congo, where 25 years of war have devastated the communities.

Weekly Update for Friday, March 9th

Important Information Regarding CSAP/TCAP

The TCAP (formally CSAP) is an annual assessment used by the state of Colorado to award accreditation to all public schools.  At Silver Creek we pride ourselves on being recognized as a “Performance Accreditation” school,  which is the highest designation a school receives.  This accreditation status is determined by our students’ results on the TCAP assessment, results on the ACT, along with the dropout rate and graduation rate.

TCAP results in Reading, Writing, Math and Science help teaching staff to develop a body of evidence in regards to individual student achievement.  This information allows us to assess both strengths and areas needing improvement for individual students and our school as a whole.

We encourage your sons and daughters to do their best.  Silver Creek students are prepared for this assessment.  Please insure that your child receives a good night’s rest and breakfast to fuel them for the morning testing sessions.  And please help them arrive on time to avoid the necessity of make-up testing.

TCAP/CSAP testing will take place on March 13, 14, 15 and 20.  Freshmen are scheduled for testing on March 13, 14, 15.  If your freshman would like to attend school between the hours of 7:15 an 11:25 on March 20, we will have supervision for them in the gymnasium and library.  Freshmen attendance on March 20 from 7:15-11:25 is optional, unless a student needs to make up a test.  All freshmen are expected to attend regularly scheduled classes on March 20 from 12:05-2:15.

Sophomores are scheduled for testing on March 13, 14, 15, 20.  Sophomores are also assessed in Science, requiring the extra day of testing.

Please see the link for the TCAP Schedule.  Two classes will occur in the afternoon each day.  All students (freshmen-senior) must be in attendance for afternoon classes from 12:05-2:15 on March 13, 14, 15, 20.

Important Information Regarding Junior ACT Preparation and Test

Junior ACT preparation will also be occurring on March 13, 14, 15, 20.  All juniors must be in attendance for the full day on March 13, 14, 15 and 20.  On March 13 we will kick off this event at 7:15 a.m. with Princeton Review providing the results of practice tests as well as test-taking strategies that will benefit all students.  Juniors will begin each day in the auditorium at 7:15 a.m. for a quick lesson related to ACT and then be released to their ACT subject-specific classroom.  Juniors will follow a four-day rotation of related test-taking strategies, content review and individual test preparation.  Each day your junior student will receive a full morning of instruction focused on one of four areas of the ACT: English, Math, Science, Reading.  Silver Creek instructors will provide the preparation free of charge.  Junior students will break for lunch from 11:00-12:00 each day.  All juniors must return by 12:05 each day for normally scheduled classes that occur from 12:05-2:15.  LINK to a Colorado Colleges and Universities letter for all junior students participating in the ACT this year on April 24.

Silver Creek High School

Weekly Update for Friday, March 1st

Important Information Regarding CSAP/TCAP

The TCAP (formally CSAP) is an annual assessment used by the state of Colorado to award accreditation to all public schools.  At Silver Creek we pride ourselves on being recognized as a “Performance Accreditation” school,  which is the highest designation a school receives.  This accreditation status is determined by our students’results on the TCAP assessment, results on the ACT, along with the dropout rate and graduation rate.

TCAP results in Reading, Writing, Math and Science help teaching staff to develop a body of evidence in regards to individual student achievement.  This information allows us to assess both strengths and areas needing improvement for individual students and our school as a whole.

We encourage your students to do their best.  Silver Creek students are prepared for this assessment.  Please insure that your child receives a good night’s rest and breakfast to fuel them for the morning testing sessions.  And please help them arrive on time to avoid the necessity of make-up testing.

TCAP/CSAP testing will take place on March 13, 14, 15 and 20.  Freshmen are scheduled for testing on March 13, 14, 15.  If your freshman would like to attend school between the hours of 7:15 an 11:25 on March 20, we will have supervision for them in the gymnasium and library.  Freshmen attendance on March 20 from 7:15-11:25 is optional, unless a student needs to make up a test.  All freshmen are expected to attend regularly scheduled classes on March 20 from 12:05-2:15.

Sophomores are scheduled for testing on March 13, 14, 15, 20.  Sophomores are also assessed in Science, requiring the extra day of testing.

Please see the link for the TCAP Schedule.  Two classes will occur in the afternoon each day.  All students (freshmen-senior) must be in attendance for afternoon classes from 12:05-2:15 on March 13, 14, 15, 20.

Important Information Regarding Junior ACT Preparation and Test

Junior ACT preparation will also be occurring on March 13, 14, 15, 20.  All juniors must be in attendance for the full day on March 13, 14, 15 and 20.  On March 13 we will kick off this event at 7:15 a.m. with Princeton Review providing the results of practice tests as well as test-taking strategies that will benefit all students.  Juniors will begin each day in the auditorium at 7:15 a.m. for a quick lesson related to ACT and then be released to their ACT subject-specific classroom.  Juniors will follow a four-day rotation of related test-taking strategies, content review and individual test preparation.  Each day your junior student will receive a full morning of instruction focused on one of four areas of the ACT: English, Math, Science, Reading.  Silver Creek instructors will provide the preparation free of charge.  Junior students will break for lunch from 11:00-12:00 each day.  All juniors must return by 12:05 each day for normally scheduled classes that occur from 12:05-2:15.  LINK to a Colorado Colleges and Universities letter for all junior students participating in the ACT this year on April 24.

Volunteer Opportunity For Students

Introducing 100 Squared, a student movement matching Silver Creek students and organizations needing volunteers.  This movement is taking place over the whole 2012 calendar year, with the ultimate goal of finding 100 volunteers who will each donate 100 community service hours.  We cannot do this without your help.  Please encourage your son or daughter to join this movement.  Not only will it look impressive on college applications, it will also strengthen the community around us.  If you know of a nonprofit organization that needs volunteers—either in general or for a specific, upcoming event—please forward them our website:  WWW.100SQUARED.ORG

Get your pictures in the Yearbook!

The yearbook staff cannot possibly be everywhere at once, so we’d love to have you share your favorite pictures with us to publish in this year’s book. Upload your favorite photos and they may be included in the yearbook! The yearbook staff reserves the right to refuse your photo if it is inappropriate, so please use good judgment with your submissions. Go to the Yearbook Web Page to upload your photos!

Computer speakers needed!

Many of our classrooms now have good projectors and effectively show video clips to supplement instruction. However, there are at least 4-6 classrooms that lack adequate speakers to project the sound sufficiently to promote learning. We need your help! Can you donate your old speakers or sound system to help these classrooms? If so- please contact Phil Goerner in the library for more information!

The Arts Prepare Students for School, Work, and Life
As this country works to strengthen our foothold in the 21st Century global economy, the arts
equip students with a creative, competitive edge. To succeed in today’s economy of ideas,
students must masterfully use words, images, sounds, and movement to communicate. The
arts provide the skills and knowledge students need to develop the creativity and
determination necessary for success in today’s global information age.

Silver Creek Education Foundation

Please consider donating to the Education Foundation’s 10 for 10 campaign.  We hope to collect over $10,000 to support Tech Equity – the technology initiative which will eventually provide two laptop carts for use in all Silver Creek classrooms, along with smart boards, laptops and document cameras in every classroom that would like to take advantage of such technology.
Our school is celebrating our 10th anniversary and with your support we can continue to celebrate academic success at SCHS.  Given recent state and district budget cuts, our school needs your continued support now more than ever.
Please go to www.stvrain.k12.co.us and donate directly through our PayPal account.  Checks can be made out to SCHS Education Foundation and sent in to the school office.  Questions?  Check out our website or contact Michelle Foster, President, at mmfoster1@qwestoffice.net or Eric Ottem, SCHS Administrator at 720-494-3721.
