After School clubs begin after winter break until spring break. This term will have robotics club and newsletter/year book club. Stay tuned for new postings regarding more after school activities as they open.
Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)-related learning is an integral component of a Silverleaf education and all students in all grades have STEM class daily. Students engage in lessons that explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation. Through hands-on activities each day, children use teamwork, creative thinking and problem-solving skills to invent unique solutions to real-world challenges. This year, due in part to a grant from Mid-Valley STEM-CTE Hub, Silverleaf upgraded its Makerspace and STEM equipment—including brand new laptops.
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.
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.
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.
