Camp Invention 2021

Silverleaf is proud to host Camp Invention again this year.  Camp will be held July 19-23, 2021.  We plan to hold camp in-person though families may choose to participate virtually.  Please visit the Camp Invention website to register.

Reopening 2021

We are currently in Phase II of our reopening plan with each class in the building full days two days per week and virtual school 2.5 days per week.  Phase III is expected to begin in April with all students attending in-person on Fridays as well.

COVID hasn’t slowed down our hands-on STEAM education.  Students engage in hands-on STEAM instruction daily, even during virtual learning with all supplies and materials provided and sent home.  While this has been an aspect of our virtual experience we are proud of, it has been so great to be back together in-person.

2020-21 School Year Updates

We are currently planning and preparing for the 2020-21 school year reopening.  Operational blueprints and COVID protocols will be available on the website by August 15, 2020.  Please connect through the Contact Us page for more information and follow us on Facebook for updates.

Silverleaf Science Expo

On February 28, we held our first Science Expo.  What a great success it was!  Parents, friends, and community members all came to see the students’ work.

The students, with guidance from Mr. L and Dr. Shelton, presented the experiments they had worked on during the month of February.  Students presented on centripetal force, electromagnetism, plant biology, composition of crystals, rising ocean levels, anatomy of marine animals, and others.  Great job students!
