  • Parking Lot 


    Reserved Parking


    We will be limiting access to the front parking lot from 7:20 - 7:40 to staff members only.

    During that time all parents will need to use the back driveway to drop their students off as only staff will be allowed to enter and park. We have monitored the safety of our lot for almost two years and have met with city engineers, our Campus Excellence Committee, and our student voice committee seeking creative solutions and our safest route in the morning is for parents to drop their students in back driveway each day.

    If you have medicine to bring or need to visit the front office, please arrive before 7:20. If you have questions or concerns, please call or stop by the front office during the school day

  • About Experiences at Silver Lake


    Teacher testimonials about Experience Design:

    "Students were engaged and parents commented about how excited their children were to come to school and that they came home smiling from the positive learning experience."
    "Our experiences help to strengthen the learning of our students. They provide them with opportunities to engage and advance their understanding."
    "It is a lot of work..., but the effort is completely worth it. Our kids benefit in so many ways and we build great relationships with our kids."
    "Students really take ownership of the learning with the experience design projects and we as teachers enjoy the experience as well."
