Principal's Message

Mrs. Merrie Maxon - Principal 
Mrs. Merrie Maxon


On behalf the of elementary faculty and staff, I would like to celebrate your partnership with us during the 2017-2018 school year. I would like to express my deepest gratitude for your continued support in educating our children.  

The passion and dedication of our Parent Teacher Student Association have continually impacted the culture and instruction of our school. Our PTSA is an amazing group of people committed to focusing their time, talents, and resources for our children's education and social-emotional well-being. Our PTSA has been a strong partner in education, dedicated to communicating with stakeholders in the school and in our community, and highly supportive of our community as they have sponsored a back-to-school bash, hosted movie nights, planned and hosted a Heroes Dance, organized Trick-or-Treat the halls for a safe and fun community event, plan and meet monthly in the morning and evening for increased flexible communication opportunities, and much more. We are ever grateful as PTSA-sponsored fundraisers directly support student academic and extracurricular opportunities. I encourage you to connect with our PTSA members and consider become an active serving member of our PTSA.

Having the opportunity to work with the dedicated staff and parents in the Silver Creek community is truly a dream come true! The more time I spend as a Black Knight in Silver Creek, the more impressed I become. The people here are friendly, hardworking, and genuinely care about the children in the community.  With our preparation of the final quarter of the 2017-2018 school year, we look forward to continuing to help your student back his/her backpack of life with the tools necessary to succeed today, tomorrow, and beyond. 

As summer approaches and we begin our planning phases of our summer programming, I am eager to continue our pursuit of excellence and joy in learning with each and every child who we are fortunate enough to learn with beyond the regular school year! If your child is invited to our summer program, please reserve your spot as soon as possible, as space is limited. Last summer provided an amazing opportunity for students to participate in enrichment opportunities and our garden to bloom into a dynamite space filled with vegetation. If you have any questions or concerns, please connect with your child’s teacher, myself, or Julia Harford at 934-2603, ext. 1100.
