NO SCHOOL - January 27th

There will be no school on Friday January 27th due to quarter end.


Thanks to a grant from the Frank Morbeck Foundation and the support of parents/community members we are happy to announce that the Wallace School District will again be hosting a week long residency with 2 representatives from the Missoula Children's Theatre.  Representatives work with interested students to put on a full length play (including music, dance, costumes, make-up, and a stage set).  Auditions and practice occur after school and the children will put on two separate performances.  This year the theatre will take place from February 6-11.  More information, including permission slips, will be sent home in the next couple of weeks.


Joe Bauer has assumed the role of school counselor at Silver Hills Elementary.  As the school counselor his primary responsibility is to promote the personal, social and academic development of all students.  A letter has gone home with all students this week introducing Mr. Bauer.  If you need to reach him please call 556-1556 or email him at
