School-wide Jobs


SAM 68819It is our belief that through shared leadership students become increasingly invested in the school. This is the culture of Mary Silveira. In grades 3-5 students an opportunity to apply for a school wide job in the month of September. It is a chance for students to build self-confidence, play a dynamic role in the decisions at Silveira, and become an agent for change and improvement. This team will be recognized in the Memory Book and at the end of the year Awards Assembly!

On Monday morning, September 11th, 2017, a special assembly will be held to share how the application process works and what jobs are available. Students will then receive application packets to take home and share with parents. On no later than Friday, September 22nd, applications are due to the front office. This gives students and their family two weeks to decide if this is something of interest. Students are not required to select a job; it is a choice. The application links are listed below.
