Silverthorne spaghetti dinner

It was a wonderful evening to be a part of the Silverthorne community on Sept. 22

It was a wonderful evening to be a part of the Silverthorne community on Sept. 22 where the elementary school hosted a parent meet and greet, complete with a spaghetti dinner.

Silverthorne has one new principal and three new teachers to welcome this year into their community.

Principal Julie Krall, a refreshing and welcoming presence, has been an educator at the Bulkley Valley School District 54 for the past 20 years.

“I’m looking forward to getting to know the students and their families, and to work together with all the staff at Silverthorne to provide an exceptional education to this area,” commented Krall.

Elizabeth Bell recently graduated this past May at UNBC in Prince George. She has returned to her hometown Houston to begin her teaching career at Silverthorne, and had this to say about what she is looking forward to, “new experiences and getting to work with the children and build relationships.”

Tanya Margerm received her education in teaching in 2001. She has been working as a teacher in Houston for the past 13 years.

And for the last two years she has been developing an outdoor kindergarden program for Houston.

“This year will be a really exciting year doing this [outdoor kindergarten program] at Silverthorne and taking advantage of our downtown core.”

Cindy Pottinger finished her education in teaching in the year 1995. She has been teaching in Houston since 1999. She previously taught at Silverthorne once before, where she began her teaching career in Houston.

When asked what she was most looking forward to this school year, Pottinger commented, “becoming a part of the Silverthorne community, because I really feel like it is a great community based school.”

Be they new or familiar members to the community, these educators have been received well at Silverthorne.
