Students in Silver Creek High's Knights Against Cancer club visited Kevin Guest House on December 8, 2022, to cook dinner for the patients and their families staying there. They prepared spaghetti, garlic bread and brought cookies for dessert. 🚌🥖🍝🍪
People come from all over the country for medical care in Buffalo and Kevin Guest House provides patients and their families relief and comfort as well as meals and a place to stay when so many other things are going on in their lives. The KAC club has volunteered at Kevin Guest House for five or six years and is another one of the students' favorite ways to give back and advocate.
**CORRECTION** Please note that our attendance line is extension 4122. It was printed incorrectly on page 3 of the January edition of the Silverliner. Thank you.
Students in ninth-grade Global Studies at Silver Creek High made their own cylinder seals in their unit on Mesopotamia using crayons and clay. Cylinder seals are engraved with characters or scenes used in ancient times and used as an administrative tool or a form of signature and/or worn as jewelry.
In Mesopotamia, they would have been made out of stone depicting various aspects of their life. So our Black Knights carved pieces that represented them and practiced rolling them into clay to see what the process was like 5,000 years ago.
Teacher Mrs. Jessica Kardashian tells us historians have a better understanding of Mesopotamia through the finding of cylinder seals and her students had a blast making them.
Today in the library, elementary and middle school students got to listen to NFL Pro hall of famer, Tony Boselli and ask Mr. Boselli questions about his career and achievements. Mr. Boselli shared his tips for success, including working hard, being honest, showing people you care and always being ready to help and support one another. Students enjoyed the virtual visit and the ability to ask Mr. Boselli questions directly.
Students in Knights Against Cancer Club at Silver Creek High volunteered with Courage of Carly and Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center pediatric patients and their families on Tuesday, December 13, 2022. 🎄🏥

Our Black Knights worked a variety of craft tables, the scavenger hunt, greeted guests and had a dance party with the kids.
