What you need to know is that each child below supported every other student clapping if a word was correct, shaking hands and hugging if a word was incorrect, just caring for one another. Truly a caring community of learners we have here at Mary Silveira.

Drive for Victims of Hurricane Harvey: We adopted a school
All change from our 4 Dixie District schools was collected and sent to Miller Creek last Friday. A district video is in the works to send as well. Such a KIND and supportive community we live in. We are filling BUCKETS by the hour. Stay tuned for final counts and we certainly hope to support the numerous families in need at Neff Elementary School.
Supporting our children who have allergies...
Mary Silveira Elementary is a school that prides itself on not only providing all students the finest education, but also ensuring their well-being and safety. This school year we have a number of students with food allergies some potentially life-threatening. While some children may experience a stuffy nose and watery eyes, other children develop more severe reactions. In the most severe cases, anaphylactic shock can occur within seconds of coming into contact with the nut product. Several of our children have strict guidelines in place to prevent these severe allergic reactions. This is where we need your support. We are asking for your help this year to provide all of our children with a safe school environment by considering not sending any peanut or nut containing products to school with your child. If this cannot be avoided, please remind your children not to share food with others.
On the school side, we continue to educate and remind our students that we do not share food and they have been responding well. Our school nurse has met with our teachers and instructional yard duty personnel to educate and support. We are very fortunate that our School Lunch program, Choice Lunch, is Nut Free. We thank you in advance for your understanding and consideration in helping us maintain a safe and healthy environment for all of our students. Alternative snack ideas.....
