May is Better Hearing and Speech Month! Please join Silver Creek Central School District in raising awareness about communication disorders. Here are some things you can do at home to enhance your student’s speech and language skills, according to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association: In Early Grades K–2: · Talk with your child a lot. · Read different types of books. Read every day, and talk with your child about the story. · Help your child learn sound patterns of words. You can play rhyming games and point out letters as you read. · Have your child retell stories and talk about his day. · Talk with your child about what you do during the day. Give her directions to follow. · Talk about how things are the same and different. · Give your child chances to write. In Later Grades 3-5: · Keep your child reading. Find books and magazines that interest your child. · Ask your child what he thinks about what he hears or reads. Connect what he reads to events in his life. · Help your child connect what she reads and hears at school, home, and other events. · Talk out loud as you help your child read about and solve problems. · Help your child recognize spelling patterns. For example, point out the beginnings and endings of words, like "pre-" or "–ed." · Get your child to write letters, keep a diary, and write stories #wearesilvercreek #BlackKnightPride #BKP #BHSM #BHSM2022

BOARD OF EDUCATION STATEMENT 5/5/2022 The investigation into allegations contained in the March 28, 2022, Letter (the “Letter”) submitted by District administrator Jay Hall to the Board of Education is in its final stages. In the meantime, all use of the room remains suspended. The District has made every effort to ensure that a thorough, informed, comprehensive investigation is conducted. To that end, and as we explained in our last update, the District has repeatedly sought to meet with Mr. Hall to gain a full understanding of the claims he has brought forth. Mr. Hall has repeatedly declined to participate. Instead, as we mentioned previously, he sent another letter to the Board, which he also published on social media, claiming to have a 90-page report that he’s chosen not to share with the District. Bottom line – it remains that Mr. Hall claims to have information regarding mistreatment of students, but he won’t share it with the District so that it can be considered, and any necessary and appropriate action can be taken. Since the last board meeting, the District has also received four Notices of Claim filed by Jay Hall’s brother, attorney Rich Hall. The District is reviewing the Notices of Claim with its insurance company and counsel, and it will respond appropriately. The District will complete its investigation shortly, and as I stated at the last meeting, it is being completed with the singular goal of getting to the truth. And I will repeat it again – if anyone has any information related to the matters raised by Mr. Hall, or that they believe may be in any way relevant to the treatment of our students, we urge you to bring it forward. Finally, the investigators continue to provide regular updates to the Board, and the Board remains confident that the District is providing a safe, secure, and welcoming environment for all students.

Silver Creek Central School District is excited to invite the community to its UNIFIED BASKETBALL TEAM’S first home game of the season! Please come cheer on our Black Knights and their opponent, the Southwestern Trojans, on Wednesday, May 11, 2022, at 5 p.m. in the high school gym at this heartwarming, family friendly event. Silver Creek CSD stands behind the simple principle that inspired Unified Sports – training TOGETHER and playing TOGETHER is a quick path to friendship and understanding. So let’s fill the stands and cheer on both teams TOGETHER. Unified Sports – which join people with and without disabilities on the same team – have been part of the district’s athletic program for three years, with students competing against other districts for bowling. This is the basketball team’s inaugural season and our student-athletes are very excited. The district’s Youth Advisory Committee is also planning some fun events during breaks in the game and concessions will be sold. Games typically last about an hour.
