Last year SMS won a $1,000 Technology Grant through MAPS Credit Union. Thank you Mrs. Chandler for procuring the Grant last year. This year I submitted a video in hopes to claim a second victory for SMS and I need your help. Please share the link below and vote for “Guptill, Scott: Silverton Middle, Unlimited Imagination with Video Green Screen”. Our goal would be to receive at least 500 votes. Please share this link on social media and get the word out. There are a few other Silverton schools applying, and it is one email per vote. Voting is December 1st -15th. There are 10 grants available and only 18 applicants. We Can Do This! Here is the link: Thank you! Scott Guptill

Did you know that we are a Box Top School? It’s EASY MONEY! Clip the Box Tops off of all different kinds of purchased products, bring them to school in a Ziploc bag or envelope with your name on it, and give to your AG teacher or leave in the office for Mrs. Martinson. We will keep track of the quantity each of you are bringing in and we will likely have a party or a prize will be given to the winners with the most submitted by the end of the school year! More details to follow, but you can start collecting and submitting NOW!
