Several months ago ELA/Humanities teacher Amelia Nordlund set up a Donor’s Choose account, hoping to get enough donations to purchase some books for her classroom.  In very short time her request was fulfilled, due to a very generous donation from the Elizabeth Ashley Hoke Memorial Trust.  In fact, the Trust was so generous that Mrs. Nordlund was able to purchase FIVE SETS OF BOOKS for the Language Arts Department!  After hearing about the tragedy that inspired the Trust to be formed, the students decided to paint “Love Rocks” (also inspired from a tragic event) and have Mrs. Nordlund deliver them to the Hoke family.  All of us at Silverton Middle School are grateful to the Elizabeth Ashley Hoke Memorial Trust, and send our love to the entire Hoke family.  Please read on for more information:
