Volunteers Rule!

We are blessed with an amazing group of individuals who support the children and staff at Silver Creek every single day.  They are our Classroom Volunteers (and one in the office---thank you, Claire! and Mary of Parent Room fame).  These volunteers are led by a Volunteer Coordinator (also a volunteer position), Sue DiBlasio.  Our volunteers all submit to a criminal reference check for serving vulnerable populations, and receive an orientation and some ongoing training by our staff. 

We are super fortunate to have the following people give so generously of their time and talent: 

Ginny; Kathy J; Mary; Michelle; Soon; Hannah; Margaret; Dora; Beth; Liz; Amy; Sue; Claire; Brenda; Kathy F; Virginia; Halima; Leona; Naomi; Karen; Mieke and Nancy.

As well our Board of Directors are all volunteers, making important decisions around the financial and forward movement of Silver Creek. We applaud: Gail Pennington, President; Colette Lafreniere-Pividori, Vice-President; Greg Chellew, Secretary; Laura Balbinot, Treasurer; Karen Anning; Lisa Wong Boivin; Liz Nolan; Joe Graci; Stephanie Sorensen; and Leslie Griesinger for their commitment to Silver Creek. 

As it is Volunteer Appreciation in April please take a moment to say thank you to our Silver Creek Volunteers.  Their work makes our school stronger and brighter for  children and their families. 

Testimonial

 

My son David (who is now 17 and attending Michael Power H.S.), was at Silver Creek from 1995 – 98.  We were thrilled to find a nursery school where he could get his much-needed physiotherapy right in the classroom.  This team approach between the teachers and the therapists was innovative and exciting.  David flourished at Silver Creek and so did I.   The staff became my friends and a great emotional support to me. They helped with equipment suggestions, sources of extra funding, and co-ordinating David’s school placement at Sunnyview P.S..  Well, David moved on but I stayed.  I have been on the Board of Directors since 1998, and President for the past 5 years.   Silver Creek is a magical place !
