Halloween Parade


Thanks for all the support of Red Ribbon Week. It is going great! Just a reminder that our Halloween festivities will be on Monday. There are many classes that will need volunteers and/or donations to make the parties for each class successful. Contact your child's room mom to see how you can help.

Parents and children are welcome to come in costume! No masks or clown costumes for adults and no weapons or anything that resembles a weapon for anyone. The parade will be outside on the west side of the school. No seating will be provided so feel free to bring a camp chair. The parade route will be marked. We ask that you not move the chairs we use to outline the route for the kids. The class parties will be directly after the parade is over and will conclude at the end of the school day. If you have any further question please contact your room mom or you can email silvermesapta@gmail.com .

Fundraiser


                                                                
Calling all Super Heroes!
Thank you for all the donations to the fundraiser so far.  We’re almost there…..but we still need more help.

If you see it at your school and it’s not in the official state curriculum….it’s funded by the PTA.  From paper and toner for the copy room to Red Ribbon Week and Class Parties. We fund NOVA for the 5th graders and Junior Achievement lessons for everyone.  How do we get our funds you ask?  From the amazing community here at Silver Mesa.  We have
some great business support, but the majority of our funds come from you!  Please take a few minutes, before Friday the 14th, to write out a check to Silver Mesa PTA and help us meet our goal and continue offering all the
programs you love!

Sincerely,

The Silver Mesa PTA

A Few of Our Supporters!

Here are a few of our supporters:

In my ten years as a teacher at Silver Mesa, I have always felt the support of the PTA in our school. We can always count on them to support the teachers in anything we need and often they go above and beyond our expectations. We know that we will always have great meals during parent teacher conferences. They use their earnings from the book fair to get books in the classrooms and library. We have parents willing to give of their time and talents to teach Masterpiece Art and other activities in the classroom. We know we can count on our room moms to plan amazing parties and just let us sit back and enjoy. Teacher appreciation week and other monthly treats show us that we are appreciated. PTA has always been there for the teachers of Silver Mesa.

PTA is first and foremost about the kids. I see the effect they have on the students all the time. The Reflections program, the Box Top prizes, the bike rodeos, carnivals, Red Ribbon Week and a million other activities that are aimed at giving back to the students and making their experience at Silver Mesa the best possible. These are some of the memories of elementary school that these students will hold onto for the rest of their lives. I know our students have benefited from PTA for more things than they even know.

For me, PTA is all about support. I know they support the teachers and they support the staff and they support the students most of all. I know that these parents and leaders are only a phone call or email away and will jump at the chance to help out. I have called on them on a number of occasions to plan parties, activities or help out at a moment's notice and have yet to be disappointed. I believe in PTA and the support they receive from a state and national organization. It's important to have those resources at hand to call upon when the need arises. I love having a supportive principal to listen to me when I have a question and I know she has had to call on her superiors before to get answers for some of them. It's nice to know she has those resources at hand. PTA is the same thing. They know that if they need to get support from outside the school, it is there for them. I truly believe it takes a village and more to teach and raise kids. It's nice to know that our students and teachers have a national organization that is looking out for them. I support PTA and all that it stands for. ”
Mr. Nelson, Silver Mesa Teacher
