Thank you to all volunteers who generously donated their time, materials and effort to the SILC Mela last weekend! YOU made it possible! The Mela is a testament to our teamwork. SILC depends and thrives on the strength of its volunteers. Thank you for volunteering! Thank you for keeping SILC strong! #silcstrong

If there are unsold items from the Bazaar that you donated and wish to take back, please check with SILC Staff at Como HS on May 14th.

Learning Model: SILC is now back to in-person onsite classes at Como Park High School (address below), weather permitting. In the event of any spikes in transmission and/or guidance from health authorities, we may transition back to online education. Please be on the lookout for our weekly email newsletter for the most up to date information around upcoming classes!

To ensure the safety of the SILC community and volunteers, SILC's medical advisers strongly recommend wearing N95, KN95 or triple-ply Surgical Masks in accordance with CDC Guidance: SILC will provide surgical masks onsite for any attendees in need of one. We have a limited supply so please bring your own if possible. Please refer to our SAFE AT SCHOOL page for additional practices to ensure a safe and healthy SILC community!
