Our Mission Silver Lake Middle School is a community built on respect, responsibility, and academic excellence. Our mission, in collaboration with students’ families and the larger communities, is to foster social, emotional, and academic growth in our middle level learners. In a healthy, safe environment, students are challenged by rigorous academics and encouraged by dedicated staff to discover and embrace their own unique abilities and talents. We seek to promote a pattern of lifelong learning that will best enable our students to be contributing members of society and meet with success in a rapidly changing world.

Winners will also win a small prize.
Blankets For Buddies: Best Buddies will be running the annual Blanket for Buddies drive from 1/3/19 through 1/30/19. Please check your clset for gently used blankets, towels , or sheets which we will be donating to the local animal shelters. Your donations will help keep shelter animals warm during the cold winter months. If you would prefer to send in cat or dog treats, we will create "doggy bags" and donate these to the shelters also. Drop off locations are outside rooms 132 and 185. Thank you so much for generosity and kindness. Please click here for more information.

Student Safety: All schools in the Silver Lake Regional School District including Halifax, Kingston and Plympton use the A.L.I.C.E. protocols. All staff have received training and we practice evacuation and safety drills with our students and staff. We use age appropriate language and processes depending on the age of the students. We are very fortunate to have an excellent working relationship with all our local law enforcement agencies as well as fire departments and work closely with them on our safety protocols and drills. Here is a link to the A.L.I.C.E. website that has some excellent resources and videos https://www.alicetraining.com/our-program/alice-training/k12-education/ The safety and security of our students and staff is always our primary concern.
