Upcycling Under Way

An old media center table was repurposed by Ms. Norcross to create a Lego table. Legos donated by families were sorted and put into upcycled plastic vhs cassette holders by 5th graders. We now have a new Lego Station. Many of our younger grades have already enjoyed this area.

New Lego Station is building creativity and engineering skills.

Innovation Sandbox - Media Marvels to the Rescue!

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.
