Welcome to Silva Valley Elementary School, home of the Golden Eagles! I am honored to serve as the principal at such an outstanding school. With over 13 years of experience in administration, 7 years in teaching, a Masters in Educational Leadership, and working in several states, I feel incredibly privileged to work with your children. It is my goal as the principal to get to know ALL of our students and families, and to work closely to build upon our Core Values. Together we can ensure that Silva Valley provides a supportive environment in which each student reaches their highest academic potential in an engaging, stimulating, safe, and respectful environment.

    Our staff at Silva Valley is just one of the many reasons this is such a special place. Our entire team, from our classified to our certificated members, is student-centered, caring, and motivated toward the success of ALL students.  Silva Valley teachers demonstrate a true passion and dedication to maintaining a strong academic program to ensure that all students meet or exceed the California State Standards. Our Silva Valley teachers are a truly committed team of professionals who will provide every child with the best education possible.

    The students are at the heart of every decision that is made at Silva Valley and they are why we are here. Our goal is that students excel academically, socially, emotionally and physically.  Our staff strives to create an environment where students feel safe, comfortable, and where ALL students are provided with opportunities to realize their greatest potential. Silva Valley continues to be a top performing school in the Buckeye Union School District. This achievement wouldn’t be possible without the support of our parents.

    I welcome you to join the Silva Valley Community and become our partner to support every child!

    With Kids in Mind,

    Kathy M. Holliman, Principal
