• Silver Spur Elf Mischief! •

To keep the social distancing fun going, the PTA has put together a couple fun December activities!

​First! Download the Silver Spur Elf  and print the "You've Been Elfed" poster. Then put together little treats and secretly drop them off to your friends (and teachers, staff) during the month of December!

Secondly! There are 10 Silver Spur Elves (yard signs) making their way around the Silver Spur neighborhoods! Be on the lookout for if/when he arrives in your yard! When he does, sign your name on the back so we know where he's been and then sneak him into a friend's yard! Let's see if our Silver Spur Elves can make it all the way around the neighborhoods this month!

• One LAST Call for Art Docents! •

Please consider helping out your teacher and our students!!! And ensure that the lessons are all perfectly suited to your child’s class! Plus!! - it’s now only a half a year commitment!
To get more information or to volunteer, please contact Noelle Tydlaska asap at
