Welcome

  • Dear Parents,

    On behalf of the staff at Silsbee Elementary School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year!

    We look forward to partnering with you in helping your child achieve their highest potential academically and socially.  We know that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both home and school.  We share the responsibility for our students’ success and want you to know that we are totally committed to do our part.  We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning to make sure that he/she:

    • Attends school daily and arrives on time.
    • Wears their student ID daily.  These are used for safety identification, cafeteria and library. These ID’s are very important in making sure we get our student where they need to be at each day.  Replacement ID’s cost $5.00 and may be purchased in the front office.
    • Reads (or is read to) daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills.
    • Shares their daily school experience with you.
    • Completes assignments.

     I want to encourage you to stay in close contact with your child’s teachers.

    If your child will be a car rider, make sure you have your official car line card displayed in the front window and follow the signs.  Please be patient the first few days as we work through the procedures. 

    WE WELCOME YOU TO VISIT AT LUNCHTIME BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 12TH. PLEASE ALLOW US THE FIRST COUPLE OF WEEKS TO WORK THROUGH AND PRACTICE ALL OF OUR LUNCHTIME PROCEDURES.

    Remember that any time you need to pick up your student, you will be asked to show a valid picture ID.  This is for the safety of our students as our Raptor system does a quick background check each time.

    Once again, welcome to our school!  Here’s to a fabulous school year!

    Sincerely,

    Terry Deaver

    Principal
