Welcome Voyager Students & Families to

Silver Strand School 2019-20!

Welcome, Voyager students and families, to the Silver Strand Elementary School 2019-20 school year!

I am grateful and proud to support a 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 believes every child every day needs a connection, a challenge, and a champion.  Your child has the opportunity to make connections with peers and teachers through our daily classroom meet-up/circles, through cross-grade mentorships and “buddies,” through access to clinical and Military Family Life counselors and community mentors, and through learning with classroom, Visual and Performing Arts, Innovation Lab, 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, personalized education time, and interventions built into the school day. Through our VAPA and Innovation Lab specials, as well as enrichment club opportunities beyond the school day, students can discover new areas of interest and excitement in music, art, dance, computer science, engineering, coding, robotics, gardening, yoga, sports, running, world languages, and more.  

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 individual.  Our Sanford Harmony social-emotional learning program promotes peer support through problem-solving, mentoring and partnerships, and coping strategies.  At our weekly Friday Flagpole community assembly, we recognize students and staff for their positive contributions to our Voyager Family, celebrating character and kindness.  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 come from the neighboring Lincoln 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).  

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, 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,
