Back to School


Each year, during the first few weeks of school, Silver Lake Regional Middle School's PTO hosts a Back to School Event.  This is separate from the cook-out and movie night hosted by Student Council.  This event has evolved from a dance to an evening of activities with a fall theme (dances become unpopular over the past few years).
