We would like to officially welcome you and your “Soon-to-Be Kindergartener” to Silver City Elementary School.  Here at Silver City our mission is to provide a supportive environment with rigor and relevance that encourages problem solving, provides individual excellence, collaborative learning, and quality performance for all.  We realize that entry to Kindergarten is a “huge step” in your child’s journey and would like to make their transition to our “family” as seamless as possible.

The District is continuing to register all new students using a virtual process. You can begin the registration process by following these directions on our County website even without all of the required forms, but your child(ren) cannot start the first day of school until all of the forms are turned in. Any forms needed from a doctor can be turned in at a later day through the upload process. After registering, you will receive an email indicating any forms that are missing and the upload link is also provided.

  • Our virtual Orientation has many components, including virtual sessions, a virtual tour and many resources to help you and your child get ready for the 2021/2022 school year.  We are EXCITED!  Hope you are, too!
  • Check out THIS VIDEO to see what a typical day in Kindergarten will look like and some of the things your child will learn and do!

BUS ROUNDUP/OPEN HOUSE - Tuesday, August 3

You and your kindergartener should be at the Bus stop around 9:00am (your driver will call you a few days adead of time to confirm location of your bus stop and pickup time).  Due to limited space on the buses, only Kindergarteners are allowed to ride the bus with their parent(s) for this event. 

You will arrive at Silver City around 9:30am where the drivers will review some bus safety information with you and your kindergartener before you exit the bus and enter the school building from the back parking lot. 

While in the school, you and your chlld will have a chance to meet their teacher, register for Comet Kingdom (if needed), add money to the lunch account, pick up school supplies ordered through PTA OR deliver school supplies you bought to the classroom, fill out necessary paperwork for the teacher, take a quick tour of the buidling, join PTA, purchase spirit wear, etc.

Around 11:00am, you will reboard the bus and be taken back to your bus stop.

If you don't want to ride the bus, you can drive to the school and still participate in Open House beginning at 9:30am.

 

Please feel free to reach out to Shelley McCannon or Kelly Evans should you have any questions or concerns.  We look forward to an amazing year of learning with your child!
