About Our School
The Silver Creek Elementary PTO raised over $56,000 this year for the school to help purchase additional technology equipment and support other building needs.
Silver Creek received a "Green up our Schools" grant to begin a compost program in the lunchroom, the only compost program originally offered in an Adams 12 school. The grant also provided funding to educate the students about the benefits of recycling throughout the school.
Since the voluntary summer reading program began, over 370 students have spent the night at Silver Creek as an incentive for practicing literacy skills over the summer.
Each year, the Silver Creek community participates in the world-wide "Walk to School Day" and "Safe-Schools Week."
Silver Creek Elementary has so many volunteer opportunities that if you added all the volunteer time up over the course of one school year it would equal close to six-full time employees. That's a lot of volunteers helping in the classrooms and other areas throughout the school. Many of our volunteers are also active members of the PTO (silvercreekpto.com).
Silver Creek one of the largest Crossing Guard program in the school district with over 25 adults volunteering as Crossing Guards. We want all our students arriving and leaving school safely.
Silver Creek has over 200 Dads or male relatives signed up to spend at least one entire day at school with their child every year as part of our WatchDOGS (Dads of Great Students) program. The WatchDOGS help students in the classroom, lunchroom, playground, and before and after school. We want more positive male role models in our school.
The Silver Creek Giving Committee and Student Leadership Club work together to teach the importance of "giving back" to those in need in the community. The students raise money and collect food for a local food bank, and donate new books, coats, and backpacks filled with school supplies for students at another school in the district. The Silver Creek community has donated food, clothing, back packs, school supplies, books and money to others in need totaling nearly $20,000 since 2007.
We love and appreciate the tremendous amount of parent and community involvement at our school!
