Message from Principal, Dr. Jonathan Leff
Dear Silver Shores Family,
Hello and welcome to the website of “The Greatest Corner in the Universe” – Silver Shores Elementary School. I am very excited to begin the 2014-2015 year. I’d like to invite you to navigate our website and find out all of the incredible things that happens daily at “The Shores.” We have an A+ faculty and staff who are talented, innovative, and committed to providing your child(ren) and you a quality education in a safe, warm, energetic, and nurturing environment.
Silver Shores had an incredible 2013-2014 school year. The following list includes some of our highlights:
· A-rated school since Silver Shores opened its doors in 2002
· 2nd Annual Enrichment Cluster Extravaganza
· State Representative Manny Diaz and Superintendent Runcie provided Silver Shores with an A+ School of Excellence Flag, which proudly flies above our school on the flagpole
· Human Peace Sign to commemorate Choose Peace Week (the entire school created a life-size Peace Sign on our playing fields that was captured by 3 major television networks via helicopter and aired on local news)
· 4th Grade partnership with Cornell University’s Department of Ornithology (STEM Initiative)
· Fully-functional Recycling Program (created by a 3rd grade student - STEM Initiative)
· Variety of produce and herbs from our Silver Shores Organic Garden (STEM Initiative)
· Whole-School participation in the Hour of Code, which taught computer coding to all students. Ari Ozder, NBC6 Education News Correspondent, highlighted Silver Shores, specifically Mrs. Bagiotti’s 4th Grade Class’ participation, on the 6:00pm news (which aired June 2nd, 2014).
At Silver Shores we highly encourage parent and community participation, through committees such as SAC (School Advisory Committee), SAF (school Advosory Forum)PTA (Parent-Teacher Association), and Volunteering (room parent, school-wide assistance).
Please pay attention to our website and calendar as we frequently update to provide you with the most real-time and up-to-date news. If you haven’t already, please “LIKE” our Facebook page (Silver Shores Elementary School) and follow us on Twitter (@silvershoresel).
