Silver Ridge Elementary is committed to being fair and equitable in the registration process for new students to the Pre-School Program. The program was developed to meet the needs of ESE students, working parents in our school, and working parents within the Western Innovation Zone.

The 2014-15 Pre-School procedures will be as follows: Students who are currently in the program will automatically re-enrolled. All Silver Ridge and Western Innovation Zone staff will be given priority. Additional spots will be open into a lottery system for neighborhood families. If you are interested in the Pre-School program, please send your name, address, child’s name and date of birth, and your phone numbers to the school by April 7, 2014, no exceptions, to the attention of Ms. Nancy Long. Any address out of our boundary will not be eligible for the lottery. All requests will be kept on file and if any additional spots open then the lottery procedure will be implemented again. Names will be drawn on April 8, 2014. Parents will be notified by phone if their child’s name has been drawn

TOY AND DOLLAR DRIVE
The SRE Student Council would like to thank you so much for all the support during the Toy and Dollar Drive. The Student Council was able to shop for 2 families and took care of 7 more.

Congratulations to Mrs. Coniglio’s class for winning the toy drive. They brought in 37 toys. Also, congratulations to the 4th Grade, they brought in $272.00 and won a week out of uniform on January 13—17, 2013. Thank you to Ms. Chrissy Trotta, Ms. Jen Meyer, and Ms. Robin Pappas for helping to sort the toys.

TANA-KEE-KEE EXPERIENCE
Tana-kee-kee was such a wonderful learning experience. We are so proud of the students, teachers and parents that made it special again this year. It truly could not have happened without everyone’s support and dedication.

Speaking of Tana-kee-kee, do you have any gently used TKK shirts that you would like to donate? Has your child outgrown it? Before you throw it away or donate it somewhere else, send it to Silver Ridge. Each year we have a few students that do not bring in shirts for Tana-kee-kee
We thought if anyone wanted to donate their shirt, we would take it to possibly use for the next year. Please send your donated shirt to the front office. Thank you in advance for helping with this. I also want to send a special THANK YOU to all of the
families that opened their homes to our students in order to use the restroom. We appreciate your kindness and generosity.

HARVEST DRIVE INFORMATION
Thank you so much for everyone's support during the Harvest Drive. We had one F150 pick up truck and 3 SUV's filled with the items we collected this year.

MEETING WITH THE MAYOR OF DAVIE
As a culmination of our Government Unit, the third graders attended a field trip to City Hall. We had the wonderful opportunity to meet with Davie's Mayor, Judy Paul. Mayor Paul invited us into her office. She asked the children questions about their studies, and shared her personal stories. She also explained how she hands out "Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches" to make people happy in this town. The children understood the metaphor, and continued asking her about preserving wildlife, balancing the budget, and her horseback riding interests. We had a lovely visit, and really connected a "being there experience" with our learning.

PRIMARY DISMISSAL PROCEDURES
All students being dismissed from the Primary dismissal side will all be dismissed from the North exit only. 

This means that:
  • Students that are meeting someone to either walk home or go to a car waiting on the north side of the school (36th street) will stay within the white-chained area and exit the campus at dismissal. We are asking parents to not park in the parking lot on the East side of the school and walk up to the dismissal area and walk their child back to the car. This is very dangerous and we are concerned about anyone walking through the car rider traffic.
  • If your child is a car rider, and you drive through the parking lot and pick them up, the students will also exit the school through the North exit and be escorted around to the car rider area – the same area we have always used.
  • If a student is a bike rider, they will also exit the school through the North exit, with all other students, but will be able to go to the bike rack and retrieve their bike.
