    Hello Silver Hill Families,

    I hope everyone  had a wonderful weekend! I cannot believe March has arrived already!  

    Important Reminders:

    1. A special Thank You to our Mrs Sanchez for finding a magical Dr Seuss assembly for grade K-2 students and thank you to our amazing PTO for sponsoring the show!  The children were screaming with delight as the presenter weaved magic and reading into the show. It was a true pleasure to see and hear their excitement!

    2. Thanks to everyone who helped with another successful ski club season.  Special thanks go out to John Antonelli, Mary Ryan, Kerry Heusser, Colleen O’Connell and everyone who helped load and unload the buses each week. We could not do this without the tremendous support of our parents!

    3. Please remember Parking lot etiquette:

      1. drop off starts at 8:30.  It is safer if students are dropped off with staff on the sidewalk to the right of the parking lot.  Please be careful when pulling away from the sidewalk since buses also need to come in on the left side.

      2. Pick-up for dismissal starts at 3:15.  Please do not park in front of Consentino or in Silver Hill bus loop for the safety of all students and their families. We appreciate everyone’s help with these procedures.

    4. PTO sponsored Butterbraids Fundraiser – 2/24 – 3/10!
