Silver City Elementary
Administrative TeamNote 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.
Mike Sloop, Principal
Welcome, Comets, to an exciting new school year! I am thrilled to be your Principal at Silver City Elementary School and work in this incredibly supportive community!
I am currently in my 19th year of education. Previously, I served as an Assistant Principal at Big Creek Elementary School, Little Mill Middle School, and DeSana Middle School! Prior to becoming an administrator, I was a middle school science teacher and an instructional technology specialist (ITS) at Otwell Middle School. While at Otwell, I was named Forsyth County’s Teacher of the Year in 2006.
Throughout my career, I have been committed to doing whatever it takes to help children love their learning experience, be nurtured and challenged, and succeed in reaching their greatest goals. As an administrator, I seek to serve students and parents with selflessness and compassion and I strive to help my teachers and staff see the best in themselves and reach their highest potential. As Comets, we truly see our role as partners with you to give your children experiences and opportunities that will “ignite (their) minds for a brighter tomorrow!”
On a personal note, I graduated with High Honors from Georgia Tech as an industrial engineer and received my Master’s Degree in Civil Engineering from N.C. State in Raleigh, NC. After being an environmental engineer with a national consulting firm in Atlanta for six years, I decided to make a career change in 2001. I attended North Georgia College and State University and earned my teaching certificate and then returned a few years later to earn my Leadership Specialist degree.
My amazing wife, Sarah, and I have been married for 13 years and we have three children—Brady (10) Logan (8), and Allie (6). We feel blessed to be part of the Forsyth County Schools community and the Comet family!
