New Silver Oak Parent Information

Welcome to our school

Welcome to Silver Oak Elementary School… We are so excited to have you join our community. Silver Oak is an exceptional school that is highly academic and challenging. It is a place where the Silver Oak staff, teachers, and parents have our kid’s best interests at heart. It is a community that cares. It takes a village these days to raise our children and our community at Silver Oak is a place where academics and our community come together to help our kids achieve their highest potential.

It is important to know that a wonderful school is truly a product of involved parents, staff, teachers and kids. Silver Oak is very successful because of these elements. All parents are encouraged to support our school through time and money. How can you help? You can help by getting involved and donating to Silver Oak.

Support your School

Giving Your Time: This can be done by volunteering in your child(ren)’s classroom. This is at the discretion of the teacher. You can get involved by volunteering in our parent organizations (SOEP/PTO). There will be opportunities throughout the year. You can always check the PTO page tab located to the far right on the front of the school's website.

Giving Your Money$: To keep all of the enrichment programs at Silver Oak it is encouraged for parents to contribute financially through the SOEP/PTO. You can support enrichment at Silver Oak by pledging funds today or attending one of our many fundraising events throughout the school year. Visit the Annual Pledge Drive page to learn more.

Earn Free Money for Our School: Every time you shop on or at Lucky's grocery store, or Office Depot, use eScript or collect Box Tops coupons these companies give money to our school. To learn more about how to get started, go to Silver Oak's Give Back to School programs.

Register on PowerSchool

Keeping in touch with parents and caregivers is important to us at Silver Oak. There are two online systems we use at Silver Oak to communicate.

  • PowerSchool is the system we use to keep you up to date on what is happening at school like information about school events, holidays, and other important activities. It is used to contact you in case of an emergency. On this system you will tell us who you want us to contact and where you want us to contact you...on email, through text or calling your home or mobile phone.
  • PeachJar helps you keep on top of important flyers from community groups like Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, the school district, athletic organizations and education enrichment. E-flyers can also be viewed by clicking on the Peachjar link on front page of our webpage.

It is important that you register on both systems to help us help you get information about your child in a timely manner. Learn more about these and other communication tools for ESD parents.
