“Silverleaf has helped my son feel like he belongs in school. He is excited to go every day!”
“Silverleaf has created an environment where a child’s love of learning is celebrated.”
“When my child talks about school, he says it’s “interesting” and “so much fun.” I haven’t heard those words about school for years. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving my kid permission to use his beautiful brain!”
“My child gets to be himself all day. He can show up with his sensitivity, perfectionism, energy, hunger for learning, quirky sense of humor, and innovative ideas…and he receives support and a sense of belonging. The teachers understand him, and the other parents understand me–we support each other.”
“I no longer have to worry if my child is sitting bored in the back of the room all day. I don’t have to spend hours advocating to the school to please provide adequate support. Thank you!”
“The teaching staff are nurturing, friendly, and very approachable. I especially want to mention Mr. L, who massively improved my child’s confidence in progressing dramatically with Math. All the teachers have been lovely. Her love of all the teachers and variety of subjects given, has truly made my child enjoy coming to school.”
Open House is February 5, 2020 5-6:30 p.m. Please come and have a look around, ask questions and schedule a visit for your child(ren) if you are interested in enrollment for 2020-21. We will be raffling off a scholarship to Camp Invention this summer, a prize valued at $245.00.
The students went on their fourth field trip of the year on January 15.
We did the Fabulous Fossils lab and they were able to all work on a real triceratops fossil!! They had a tour of the submarine at OMSI and got to enjoy the exhibits afterward. It was an awesome, and very tiring, day! If you haven’t seen the work of Oregon artist Chris Marley and his exhibit Exquisite Creatures, it is amazing–unlike anything we’ve seen before.
Imaginations will soar this summer in the all-new Camp Invention® program, Elevate! Campers in grades K-6 will spark their creativity and build collaboration skills while controlling their very own flight simulation robot, protecting Earth’s ecosystems, designing the ultimate sports complex and learning the value of their ideas! Local educators will lead fun, hands-on STEM activities inspiring children to ask questions, overcome obstacles and be confident in their innovative ideas. Visit invent.org/camp or call 800-968-4332 to register. Use promo code SUM25 to save $25 (expires 3/31) or SUM15 to save $15 (expires 5/12).
While Art is a component of STEAM, we also enjoy two full hours of dedicated art instruction each week. Mrs. Newton teaches about an artist of the month, teaches techniques and builds on them with the most amazing projects!
