Wondering about those Wildcats 2021
Updates and information about our Silliman Wildcats
A Word from the Principal
With the end of the semester in two short weeks, I have encouraged students to be mindful of their preparations for their mid-term exams. Beginning Wednesday, December 10 our teachers will no longer assign tests or projects as we prepare for the upcoming exams. The mid-term exams will begin on Tuesday, December 14, and conclude on Friday, December 17th. We will have early dismissal on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of that week. Dismissal time on those days will be at 11:25. For the first time, we will allow students in grades 7-12 to earn exemptions from their mid-term exams. A student must have earned an “A” for both first-semester nine-week grades to earn this exemption. Students will be notified of exemptions on December 10th. We will be on our Christmas Break from Monday, December 20th through January 3rd. Our students will return on January 4th.
Because this is a time of the year that we often get so busy in our daily lives that we can forget to thank God for the birth of his son. Therefore, I would like to offer a prayer to help us remember what is most important!
Thank you, God, for sending Your Son on one glorious night to be born of a virgin, to live a perfect life, and to die on the cross for my sins. Thank you that he rose from the dead three days later and that this Christmas and every Christmas we can celebrate the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ.
From all of the faculty and staff at Silliman, I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a blessed new year that is filled with peace and joy. - Kevin Lemoine

The Book Fair
1st and 2nd Grade Christmas Play
The high school and middle school students are enjoying Monday chapel once more. Chapel is organized by our Chapel Committee, led by Bridget Richards. The Chapel Committee is a group of 10th - 12th grade Silliman students that pray over students and staff, share testimonies, and reach out to students. We have different pastors from around the area worshiping with us each week. Thanks to Bridget Richards for organizing and Justen Taylor for leading our worship.
