The Silver Lake Way
A Silver Lake Black Tiger will Be Respectful.
A Silver Lake Black Tiger will Take Responsibility.
A Silver Lake Black Tiger will Practice Safety.

As students demonstrate these characteristics they are recognized with Black Tiger Pride tickets. Black Tiger Pride tickets can be redeemed for classroom privileges and rewards as well as building-wide events such as Bingo or Pajama Day! We are so proud of the Black Tiger Pride happening every day here at Silver Lake Elementary.

As the days get shorter and the temperatures drop, please make sure that your student is dressed appropriately to go outside for recess. A friendly reminder that student drop off begins at 8:35 am. To avoid prolonged periods of waiting outside, please do not drop off your student prior to 8:35 am.

If you have any questions or would like to learn more about Silver Lake Elementary, please feel free to email me at [email protected] or call (330) 926-3811. Silver Lake is wonderful learning community where children come first!

Dear Silver Lake Family,

Here are some helpful tips to help make home and school connections successful:

  • Please visit the Newsletter link for additional happenings at SLE and information directly from me. J
  • Pick up of your students: When picking up your child at school, parents are to remain in the office. This is for several reasons:
    • Teachers are able to continue instruction time.
    • Teachers cannot visit or conference with you during this time. Please make an appointment with them before or after school.
    • For safety of all students and staff, we need visitors to remain in the office.
    • Students will be called down to come to meet you in the office.
  • Safety procedures: Safety procedures are practiced routinely. Our students and staff deserve to know how to react in situations that are out of the norm. For example, we practice fire drills, place and secure drills, lock down drills, and tornado drills routinely. Safety information can be found of the Ohio Department of Education website to help become more informed with the practices of school safety. Please feel comfortable emailing or calling me. I am always happy to speak to you about these concerns.
    • SLPD has a visible and frequent presence at SLE. We are very fortunate to work closely with our local police department.
  • Classroom teacher:  The first person to ask when you have a question is the classroom teacher. The classroom teacher is the person that spends the majority of the day your student. The teacher observes your student’s learning, how your student is interacting with the curriculum, and how your student problem solves. The classroom teacher builds a strong relationship with your student. The teacher watches and supports your student’s social relationships. The classroom teacher wants each student to have a successful learning day and an enjoyable day relating to peers. Please contact and trust your student’s teacher when you have a concern. The teacher is the best resource for support.
  • Safety: We have procedures in place to help your child practice safety as well as learn safe procedures. We teach the students about our arrival and dismissal procedures, about fire drills, place and secures, and lock down drills. Here is a reminder of what we review with the students.
    • Arrival and Dismissal procedures are designed for the safety all of students and staff members. Please respect the procedures that we have. These procedures are for everyone.
    • There is no parking on Overlook Drive during arrival times. Students are of school age and able to walk into the school independently. Overlook Drive is for drop off only.
    • The back of the building is for K students and bus riders before and after school.
    • There is no double parking on Overlook Drive for any reasons.
    • The school grounds are closed after school until 3:45. Students are not permitted to stay and play on the grounds after school for safety reasons. In order to ensure that all students have returned safely home, the grounds are to be exited and cleared until 3:45 for students and families.
    • Late arrivals: If you are arriving to school late, please come to the front door and buzz in. Mrs. Gerber will let you in, have your parent sign you in, and give you a pass to go to class.
    • Change of after school routine: Please do your best to have all after school routines established and communicated to your student before the school day.
    • All after school routines changes should be communicated to the office before 12:00 in order to inform the classroom teacher and student properly.
    • Changes in after school routines should only take place in an emergency.
  • Winter weather: The winter weather can pose some new family challenges. Please make sure that you dress your student for the weather every single day. If you are struggling with winter coat, hats, or gloves for your student, please notify the classroom teacher. We have resources that we can try to use to support your needs. Please remember to label all winter wear. Students are to be prepared to play outside at recess every day unless the weather in below 30º. Our hope is for students to be outside in the fresh air and exercising daily.

Our goal is for students to enjoy their day learning in a safe environment that promotes kindness and encourages individuality. We want students to grow as individuals as they prepare to be skilled members of the 21st century community.

For more information, please visit the classroom teachers’ websites, district calendars, and classroom newsletters.

Welcome to Silver Lake Elementary School!

Our goal is for students to enjoy their day learning in a safe environment that promotes kindness and encourages individuality. We want students to grow as individuals as they prepare to to be skilled members of the 21st century community.

The school year starts off with lots of excitement and many questions. We have many resources on our webpage that you might find helpful. Here are a few tips to help you stay informed:

  • When you have a question or concern, always contact the classroom teacher first. They are the best source for direct information about your student.
  • Please refer to the Family Handbook for information. You will find most answers to your questions in this handbook.
  • Arrival and Dismissal proceduresare designed for the safety all of students and staff members. Please respect the procedures that we have. These procedures are for everyone.
    • There is no parking on Overlook Drive during arrival times. Students are of school age and able to walk into the school independently. Overlook Drive is for drop off only.
    • The back of the building is for K students and bus riders before and after school.
  • The school grounds are closed after school until 3:45. Students are not permitted to stay and play on the grounds after school for safety reasons. in order to ensure that all students have returned safely home, the grounds are to be exited and cleared until 3:45 for students and families.
  • Late arrivals: If you are arriving to school late, please come tot he front door and buzz in. Mrs. Gerber will let you in, have your parent sign you in, and give you a pass to go to class.
  • Change of after school routine:Please do your best to have all after school routines established before the school day and have your student informed. All after school routines changes should be into the office before 12:00 in order to inform the classroom teacher and student properly.
    • A late request for a change in routine poses a challenge to students and staff to meet this demand when instruction is taking place. Please be proactive in making your routine changes before the start of the school.
    • Changes in after school routines should only take place in an emergency.
  • All visitors- even for the clinic: Please sign in at the office first. Then you will be excused to go to the clinic.
  • School buzzer: The school buzzer is designed for safety. If Mrs. Gerber is on the phone or away from her desk, she cannot answer the front door. Teachers are not permitted to let in visitors at the front door for safety reasons. Please be patient. We have routines established to keep students and staff safe.

If you cannot find the information that you need, please email at [email protected]cfalls.org. I am happy to help!

As plans are made for the upcoming school year, we will continue to add new information to the calendar and website. Please check back in as the school year approaches for the latest information.

I look forward to working with you and your child this school year!

Here are some upcoming details:

Spring MAP: We are starting round three of MAP. Students will set their final learning goals for the year.

They will depart from SLE at 9:00 and return back to school at approximately 2:00. Students can pre-order a packed lunch and charge it to their lunch account. The students will be eating at the high school! What a treat! The Art Sparks show will be at 12:45-1:30 in the high school auditorium! Wow!
