Congratulations Emily Zambrano, winner of the Shark drawing contest sponsored by the PTA. Emily is a 6th grader here at Silva, and her winning drawing will be featured on a pennant which will be displayed in the cafeteria.
Band and Strings Are Back!
We are excited to tell you that we are offering a band program at Silva this year! Mrs. Evans will teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced band classes during the school day at Silva. Beginning band classes will be taught twice a week for 40 minutes and will only be offered to 5th grade students. A 2nd year band class will be taught during the school day at Silva once a week. The intermediate and advanced classes are for 6th grade students that were in our band program last year.
We have added Mr. David Collum, who is a veteran strings teacher at McAuliffe Middle and Bear Creek High School, to Silva staff to teach strings to Silva’s 5th and 6th grade students during the school day. He will visit and speak to every 5th and 6th grade classes to share information about the requirements to join the strings program. Both strings classes will be taught twice a week for 40 minutes. Thank you all for your support!
