Principal’s Welcome

Mark Twain Family,

Welcome to the 2023-24 school year! It is with great excitement that we welcome your children back to school for what is sure to be an extraordinary year. Every single student that walks through our doors adds something special to our community. We welcome them back with open arms!

This year, our staff and students are working hard on our “Three Be’s”: Be safe, Be respectful, Be responsible. We strive to create an environment where every student feels valued and important. Students earn “Kit Cards” when we see them meeting our Three Be’s! Kit cards can be saved and used to purchase fun items and experiences. Join us in encouraging your students to Be Safe, Be respectful, and Be responsible!

We are looking forward to a wonderful year in partnership with you!

Silver Falls School District now uses ParentSquare for school communication, primarily with email, text, and app notifications. ParentSquare automatically generates an account for each parent, using their preferred email address and phone number. We encourage parents to access their accounts so they can download the mobile app and update their preferences on when and how they are notified.

Here’s what you can do with ParentSquare:

  • Receive messages from the school via email, text or app notification
  • Choose to receive information as it comes or all at once at 6 pm daily
  • Communicate in your preferred language
  • Comment on school postings to engage in your school community
  • Direct message teachers, staff and other parents
  • Participate in group messages
  • and MORE!

We are excited to offer this communication tool for us to stay more connected and engaged with your student’s education.
