Principal's Welcome

 Welcome Students and Families to Silver Strand Elementary School

Jenny Moore
Welcome, Voyager students and families, to the Silver Strand Elementary School 2022-23 school year!  I am proud and grateful to support this unique, small, and special school in Coronado Unified School District and to serve Silver Strand’s dedicated and inspiring staff, kind and curious students, and generous and involved families and community members.  
Coronado Unified School District further believes every child every day needs a connection, a challenge, and a champion.  Regardless of the mode of instruction, we recognize the importance of your child having opportunities to make connections with peers and teachers and prioritize social-emotional well-being and connectedness.  Our students benefit from the resources of both clinical and Military Family Life counselors and community mentors, and through learning with classroom, Visual and Performing Arts, Innovation Lab, Spanish, and PE teachers.  
Silver Strand Elementary School offers curriculum, instructional strategies, and resources to meet the needs and styles of diverse learners. Each student will be challenged to achieve based on individual strengths and areas of growth and through small group instruction and interventions built into the school day. Through our VAPA and Innovation Lab special courses, students can discover new areas of interest and excitement in music, art, theatre, dance, computer science, engineering, coding, and robotics. Through funding from the Coronado Schools Foundation, we offer free before-school Band and Choir for select grade levels.  
The Silver Strand Elementary Voyager family recognizes how critical it is to belong to a safe and supportive community which champions the gifts and contributions of each unique individual and honors diverse backgrounds, values, and perspectives.  We are committed to recognizing, learning about, and supporting one another, and to preparing our students to learn, work, and thrive as citizens with cultural awareness and responsibility.  Our Harmony social-emotional learning and Playworks Recess programs promote peer mutual support through collaborative problem-solving, mentoring and partnerships, and coping strategies. Through the lens of a growth mindset, we champion our students’ individual growth and successes, encouraging them to recognize leaps in both academics and personal responsibility.
Our families hail from the neighboring Liberty Military Housing at Silver Strand, the Coronado Cays housing development, as well as neighborhoods in Imperial Beach and San Diego through inter-district transfers.  We extend a warm welcome to our military families, recognizing the unique gifts and challenges associated with families who serve.  Silver Strand Elementary and Coronado Unified School District are proud to offer robust resources for students and families through our partnerships with the military, including our Military Family Life Counselor (MFLC), Military Spouse support groups, and mentoring programs (Operation BIGs and PALs).  
This year we are excited to offer universal free breakfast and lunch for all students TK-5.  We have a newly renovated Library and Innovation Lab/Maker Space.  We also look forward to the return of our after-school enrichment clubs and PTO Family Fun Nights.  
Our programs and opportunities are the result of generous community support.  We encourage you to connect with us and other families through joining and volunteering with our Silver Strand PTO, the Coronado Schools Foundation, Coronado Safe Harbor, and in your child’s classroom. Communicate with your child’s teachers and participate in school activities such as weekly Friday Flagpole assemblies and Family Fun Nights, fairs, and performances.  
Invest in and champion your child’s education and personal growth this year by talking with your child about daily learning challenges and experiences, and reading, researching, and exploring together. 
We look forward to knowing your children and you.  It’s going to be a wonderful year! 
Welcome to our Voyager Family,
