Principal's Message

  • Silver Firs Families,  

    I would like to welcome each family to the 2022-23 school year at Silver Firs Elementary School!  I am honored and feel very fortunate to be able to serve the amazing Silver Firs school community of families and staff who are committed to supporting each child’s success and growth socially, emotionally, and academically every day.  Your support is very important for this success, so thank you for always partnering with us.  Together, we are going to make it a great 2022-23 school year!

    If you are new to Silver Firs Elementary, we embrace being a community that is passionate about helping each student achieve academic and social emotional excellence. Our teaching staff is highly qualified, and we are continually learning and growing professionally to better serve the needs of each student and their family. We will provide the best educational learning experiences for your child while helping them develop a strong growth mindset of determination, perseverance, grit, and passion to learn. Here at Silver Firs, we pride ourselves on ensuring all students receive exceptional standards-based instruction and we are dedicated to teaching students the skills necessary to become life-long learners who are respectful of differences and who can transition from the classroom to the community as successful contributing citizens. 

    The Jaguar community is made up of dedicated teachers, staff and parents who all come together with one common priority ~ doing what’s best for our students. Our motto at Silver Firs is, “Together we grow with PRIDE” (Politeness, Respect, Independent managers, Doing our best, Everyone working cooperatively). The education of our students is a partnership. Whether it is as a member of the PTA, or as a classroom volunteer, I invite you to visit Silver Firs and join in the partnership. We cannot do this important work without you! 

    The Silver Firs staff and I are very excited about working with you and your children this year and doing whatever it takes to ensure that every child has an outstanding learning experience at Silver Firs.  As always, I welcome opportunities to chat formally or informally about ways we can best serve our students and want to work collaboratively with you to make your child's experience at Silver Firs successful.

    Thank you for bringing your children to Silver Firs and giving us your trust in educating your children.

    Warmest regards, 

    Aleta Smoot, Principal
