Silver Bay Elementary is in the process of renovating our media center. It has been renamed "Innovation Sandbox" and is being redesigned to incorporate a Makerspace, Green Screen area, digital reading materials and flexible seating to suit the needs of our diverse population. This area will become the heart of our school where multiple classes with a variety of abilities can come together to explore, create and discover. A sandbox is a place where children can create and imagine without any boundaries, that is our vision for our “sandbox.”
We want to spark a spirit of unity and cooperation that will resonate throughout the school. Silver Bay has started a club, Media Marvels, whose goal has been to revamp and rejuvenate this section of the building. Their motivation has been inspirational and a lot of their ideas are taking shape. We need more funding to help complete our vision.
