So whether you are hybrid or DLA this year, please submit photos of your students from this year! Normally the slideshow pictures would be taken on campus-in class and during campus activities. This year, all those things are at home! So submit pictures of your kids doing school, crafting, baking, reading, hiking, skiing, camping, etc! We want to showcase what and how our kids did to get through this unusual year! Please tag all pictures with student name and teacher.

• Diversity, Equity and Inclusion SURVEY •
March 1st-12th

ATTENTION all Silver Spur families! The DEI committee has created a schoolwide survey to get a baseline understanding of the current mindset, perspective, thinking, needs, and wants of our school community as it relates to DEI.  The survey is intended to help inform the committee and provide the insight needed to lay the groundwork for preparing a proper DEI presence in the 2021-2022 school year, and beyond. Without your help, we will be unable to represent your perspective and needs. The survey is completely anonymous and no personal information is collected. 
Please click the link below to participate in the survey. It will only take a minute or two. Thank you!
