Silver Mesa Science Fair

The PTA Silver Mesa Science Fair will be held at the end of January and this year we will be having a STEAM night (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) the evening of January 25th for families to view Science Fair and Reflections entries.

Students doing a project will be required to research a subject and have hands-on experience with the subject. They will also be required to prepare a poster for their presentation.

If you are interested in doing a science fair project, please complete the attached form and return it to school by December 4th, 2015.

PTA's Listen to the Music Program

Masterpiece Music's "Listen! to the Music" is a new PTA music program introduced to Silver Mesa in 2015 and is taught in all grades (Kindergarten through 5th).

The program is taught every other month in conjunction with Masterpiece Art. The goals of the program are to:

  • Introduce students to the joy of listening to music (instrumental, vocal, classical, contemporary, etc.)
  • Introduce various instrument families to students. Allow students to hear instruments from each of these families.
  • Provide listening activities that allow students to hear music examples of each family.
  • Provide listening activities that allow students to identify what instruments they hear.
  •  Introduce students to a myriad of composers.

You can download the lesson plans for each grade, as well as download all the individual music files to listen to at home!!
