The Tracy Rivas Fund was established in 2015 after the Silverwood Community lost a teacher and friend, Tracy Rivas, to colon cancer on October 1, 2014.  The fund was brought to life after Tracy's family requested that all donations made in her passing be gifted to the Silverwood PTA.  In the spirit of Tracy's philosophy of teaching - that children learn better with hands-on experience - teachers can make funding requests to enhance learning in their classrooms.

If you'd like to see your student's name on the Silverwood marquee, please print and fill in the pertinent sections of Your Name in Lights.  The cost is $10, and requests require 2 weeks' notice.

Our PTA plans so many exciting events for our students, and help with costs of many others!  Here is a list of many of those events:
