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

To the miracle workers at Silver Creek: 

Words cannot express the gratitude and love that I feel.  You have been able to hold our hand and guide us to the millions of possibilities that our son Fadhil has.  It is bitter-sweet because you have become Family. Fadhil has become a more confident boy ready to take on the world.  He is able to sign and communicate his needs very efficiently.  I am no longer worried about how he will do in school because of the great accomplishments that I have seen while he was at Silver Creek.  

Thank you for giving us courage and strength.  Our support for Silver Creek will never end.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
