Fall Ball follow up: What an awesome evening!

On October 27th, many students and families enjoyed a fun evening of playing carnival games, dancing and learning about the Day of the Dead by tasting special goodies made specifically for this holiday by some of our awesome parents, all while having fun wearing their costumes.

Our silent auction included experiences donated by teachers and staff at SLE, the community, and several generous parents. It was a GREAT success and raised $4679.85. All of this money will be used to help support our SLE Students, Teachers and Staff this school year! Thank you for your generosity and showing your love for our Shooting Stars!


Can’t wait to see you at Fall Ball Friday, October 27th 6-8 pm!

Happy Fall, y’all! Join us at the SLE Fall Ball where you can show off your costume or your natural beauty and have fun with your friends. While there you can:

Dance to the tunes of the DJ

Play carnival games for prizes

Eat from the concession stand

Enter a raffle for prizes

Donate to teacher’s Wish lists

You will also be able to bid on some very special prizes like special experiences with some of your teachers, parking spots, front row seats at PTA sponsored events, name your grade’s hallway, and some other very special prizes!

Entry to the Fall Ball will be free, but we do ask that families bring canned food or non-perishable items to kick off our Fall Food Drive. Tickets will be on sale at the event for the carnival games, concessions, and raffle. More info to come on the auction.

Boosterthon Fun Run Final Results- $20,005 raised for SLE!

The inaugural Silver Lake Elementary Fun Run on September 14th was a HUGE success! Our school goal was to raise $15,000 for Teacher Grants, Classroom Resources and Student Awards & Activities.  We were able to raise a record-breaking $20,005

Here are a few FUN FACTS from our fun run this year:

–        All 540 students in grades K – 5 participated in the fun run

–        Students Registered Online: 64% or 346 out of 540 registered their child online

–        Students Pledged: 53% or 286 out of 540 received a pledge

–        We received pledges from all over the world. Pledges came in from 36 states and 8 countries!!!

Our Fun Run also came with a world-class character theme. This year’s theme was CASTLE QUEST, an English castle theme all about being brave and living with character. Students learned the “SIX VIRTUES of a TRUE HERO” from a cast of colorful characters like Muscle Mike and T-Rex Lex, attended a school pep-a-rally, earned prizes and ran up to 35 laps each during the fun run event.

A special thank you to our corporate and family t-shirt sponsors that made it possible to provide a free Silver Lake Elementary Fun Run t-shirt to every child in grades K – 5. This shirt will also be used for Class Field Trips!

Puede asistir el Fun Run para el 14 de septiembre. Necesita venir temprano para el evento de su estudiante porque tiene que entrar por la oficina primero. Disculpe por las largas líneas que vamos a tener, pero tenemos un nuevo sistema y necesitamos escanear todas sus identificaciones otra vez. No tuvimos mucho tiempo para establecer el “FAST PASS” hasta el siguiente evento. Les pedimos que tengan paciencia en este proceso, lo hacemos por la seguridad de sus estudiantes que es una prioridad muy alta para nosotros.

Lo siguiente es el horario del evento para los diferentes grados:

Kínder/1er grado es de 8:15 – 9:00 am
2do/3er grado de 9:15 – 10:00 am
4to/5to grado de 10:15 – 11:00 am

Necesitamos voluntario en ayudarnos marcar las vueltas en la playera de estudiantes cada vez que dan una vuelta para que completen 35 vueltas. Aquí es el link para inscribirse.

Necesita que inscribir su estudiante en línea en http://www.funrun.com y busque el nombre de Silver Lake Elementary y use el código 772-334. La clase de su hijo ganara un premio por el número de estudiantes que se inscriban, aunque no ponga las promesas allí.

Si no tiene internet o tiene promesas para inscribir, use la corona que su estudiante recibió el 5 de septiembre (tenemos más si lo necesitan). Muscle Mike le ayudara a su estudiante inscribirse si necesitan ayuda y pueden colectar sus promesas adentro de la corona.
