I’d like to take some time in, likely a long overdue, recognition to some of the great things occurring at Silver Creek High School. While running a small city of teenagers it may be easy to focus on some of the poor decisions or challenges we all face with high school life. Bye and large our kids continue to achieve at unprecedented levels in the classroom, in the arts, in leadership and in athletics!
We have had a tremendous fall at Silver Creek! With a successful 1:1 rollout, many academic, athletic and artistic successes, and accolades that continue to pour in; it reminds me of a saying a colleague used to share with me. “Yes, but it’s high school and the day is not over yet.” My response, “Yes, and look at how much more we can accomplish!”
Since last fall, we have been engaged in an ongoing dialogue regarding the correlation of adequate sleep and student well-being and achievement. In response, district officials and I have been exploring the feasibility of readjusting Silver Creek’s start time.
