Silver Hill Elementary School
March 19, 2020
Good Morning Silver Hill Jaguars and your Families,
Today is Thursday, March 19, 2020. Just continuing with our daily morning announcements. I will be sending out the phone message as close to 9am every morning to coincide with our regular morning announcements at school. I heard from some parents this will allow you to let the message go to voicemail and then be able to replay it for your children. Thank you so much for your suggestions.
I have also heard from a few parents that were unable to pick up their packets at school on Tuesday. I will be at school from 8:30-9:45 today but please email or call to be sure I have what you are looking for. Several teachers from grade levels, 1,3,4 were able to take their packets to deliver. If you need a packet from those grades, I can get in touch with staff to determne bst way to meet up.
We have a special Happy Birthday wish for three Jaguars today:
Happy Birthday to:
Zaylee M., Jasmine O., and Stephanie B. Hope you all have a fantastic day!

I hope some of you were able to try the Scholastic Resources mentioned in yesterday’s email. Please feel free to share any thoughts you have on any of the at home learning going on. If you have not tried Scholastic yet, it is always available to try at a later time.

Let’s get reading and show how dedicated, smart, and engaged our Silver Hill Jaguars are!
I cannot say how excited we were to get so many fantastic photos to share on our school website of Jaguars working or playing hard at home! Please keep them coming. It is a great way for us to keep connected in a positive way. I honestly smiled all day thinking of how lucky I was to work with so many wonderful students, staff, and families. Remember to check it out on the school website under Jaguar Corner! You can share by emailing me at email@example.com. We will only post the student name and picture with your permission .Can’t wait to see more learning and fun going on!
Joke of the Day:
Wednesday’s joke was: Why did the student eat his homework? Answer: Because the teacher said it was a piece of cake! Hahahaha
Today’s joke: What time do ducks wake up???? Answer: Coming tomorrow………
Just want to end with our Silver Hill Jaguar Pledge:
I pledge today and everyday, to show respect in every way.
I take ownership for my behavior, with a positive attitude towards my neighbor
Responsibility is on my mind, I try my best every time.
Safety is seen throughout the school, we care about others and follow the rules.
Silver Hill Jaguars, ROAR!!!!!!
Remember to make us PROUD, follow the pledge in and out of school!
It’s a rainy day today, good day for a board game, a family movie, or read a book together! Remember to keep learning, stay active, and wash your hands frequently!
Have a great day, we miss you all,
