Silver City Elementary
Administrative Team
Note to parents:
As a parent you play a key role in the success of your student. As a parent myself, I know that you entrust your child to us each and every day. With your support we can foster a love of learning and a path of success for each and every child. In addition to working with your children at home, we invite you to also become involved by volunteering in classrooms, serving as room parents, PTA or committee officers, tutors, or assisting with a variety of programs that occur throughout the school year.  Our standard of excellence is very high as our students consistently stand toe-to-toe with the very best in the state.  This success is due to teamwork and an absolute commitment by the parents, the students, and the educators to settle for nothing less than the very best.  It is the Comet way!

Thanks in advance for your commitment to work with and encourage your children during this school year.
