Message from Jen Kohl - new SMS Principal
Dear Silverado Parents/Guardians,
Welcome to the 2014-15 school year! I am looking forward to getting to know all of you and your student/s throughout the course of the year. It is my privilege to welcome back our returning students and to warmly welcome our new students to Silverado Middle School. As we begin the new year together, I invite you to come to the Library after drop off on Wednesday, August 13th for coffee with the principal. I look forward to meeting you and partnering with you this year. I will also be available to meet new and returning parents on Tuesday, August 19th from 6:00 – 7:00 PM in the Library. See you then.
This year, we continue our work around the use of technology in the classroom as a tool for learning. I encourage you to send your student to school with a device to be used for learning throughout the day, especially in the 6th and 7th grades. Information regarding our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies can be found on the district website at http://www.nvusd.k12.ca.us/byod.
At Silverado, we will continue our strong tradition for preparing students to be academically successful and ready to become productive and positive members of our community.
We continue our commitment to building relationships, engaging our students in meaningful and authentic classroom learning experiences, and working as a team to provide your student/s with a strong foundation from which to build.
Again, welcome, and enjoy the start of the 2014-15 school year!
All the Best,
