Bronco Family,

We made it. Can you believe it! This school year will go down in our memories as one of the must unusual, challenging, and constantly changing years. But we made it!

I want to thank you all for your perseverance, patience, adaptability and support these past many months. Through these unusual learning and social times, our kids learned determination, how to adapt, how to handle/process big issues, and how to keep friendships going – even from a distance. Thank you, parents, for the additional time you put in to make this year work as well, for your participation and support of PTA programs and activities, and the example you showed your student(s) in tough times.

​Thank you teachers for the year of learning and your incredible flexibility and creativity in your teaching! Thank you staff for providing leadership, support, and a safe space for our kids to do school – whether at home or on campus. And finally, thank you, Dr. Genovese, for stepping in for a few months and helping us continue to plan/execute PTA programs/activities for our students.

Congrats to this year’s graduating 5th grade class! We are excited to watch you go off and do big things from here! And well-done Bronco students and families for completing the 2020-2021 school year. I hope you all have a wonderful summer! Can’t wait to see you all again in the fall!

Jen Cox

Good-Bye Mr. Sal 


After eight years of truly outstanding service to our school community, our amazing head custodian, Mr. Sal, will be leaving Silver Spur to start a new position in the PVPUSD Maintenance & Grounds Department.
