General School Business 

Family-School Relationship Take the annual Family-School Relationships Survey to provide insight that allows us to measure year-over-year trends for your school and the district to ensure we are best serving you and your child. Evaluating how well we are doing is central to living out our strengths and goals in our new strategic plan, ELEVATE, so we encourage you to provide valuable feedback on where we are succeeding and where we can improve. 

We will triangulate the family data with our staff and student survey data for a comprehensive look at school culture and to gain a broader perspective on the district overall.

Congratulations MathCounts  After two years, MATHCOUNTS returned to in-person competition last Saturday, January 22nd.  In the “Preliminaries”, Daniel Karpov placed 9th out of 64 players.  In addition, “Silver Hills Team #1”,  “Abhi Singh”, “Ava Kanouse”, “Dennis Karpov”, and “Daniel Karpov” placed 5th out of 19 teams!  Congratulations to all!!!

Panorama Student Survey (Repeat)  All schools in the Adams 12 Five Star School District will administer the Panorama Social-Emotional Learning Survey between January 24th and February 19th. Silver Hills students will spend about 30-45 minutes completing the survey through their STORM Time class. Although this survey does not collect personally identifiable information, it does allow us to view feedback trends and patterns across our school that will inform how we approach social-emotional learning for all students. Our school is committed to increasing social-emotional resources and support for all students, and the data provided from this survey will help us do that more effectively and efficiently.

Congratulations to Spelling Bee Winners (Repeat)  We had an amazing event on Wednesday night, congratulations to all of our participants!  You made us all proud!  A special shout out to our Spelling Bee Winners - Lexis Engle and Ava Kanouse!
