Letters from the Principal

Dear Parents of Incoming Silver Spur Kindergarten Students:

Welcome to Silver Spur and to the 2020-2021 Kindergarten class!!!! On behalf of our Kindergarten teachers, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to your children and all of you. We actually cannot wait to meet each and everyone of you.


This year we find ourselves in a bit of an unusual situation with our school closure. Should we have been at school, we would have had you come to school with your child in order to meet all of us prior to the beginning of the school year. We usually host two kindergarten round ups in the Spring. At these Round Ups children go to the classroom to meet their teachers while parents are with me in the MPR for an informational talk about what to expect in kindergarten. As of right now, we are unable to plan such a day. But don't worry. Our amazing teachers and I will put our heads together and once we move into phase 3 of reopening, we will plan something at school for all of you to meet us and for your children to meet their classmates. 


Just so that you know it has been a tradition at Silver Spur to also host a Kindergarten tea on the Kindergarten yard on the day before school begins. As of right now, we are still planning on doing that. The format might have to be different in order to observe protocols and guidelines from the Health Department but we are planning on it. As soon as I have more details I will contact you. The Annual Kindergarten Tea is an opportunity for your child to meet his/her teacher and spend a little time in his/her K classroom with future classmates. Parents also have the opportunity to meet other K parents.


The first day of school is Wednesday, August 26, 2020.  


Our K team is beyond exceptional. Please know that your child could not be in better hands with these three amazing and passionate K teachers (Mrs. Kruener, Mrs. Maier and Mrs. Malloy). Our teachers and I are very much looking forward to meeting you and your child/ren and welcome you to Silver Spur. It truly is an amazing community.
