SHS Updates and Reminders

Hello Silk Hope families this is Mrs. Brady-Andrew sharing updates and reminders for the week ahead.

Welcome Back

We hope that you are ready to begin the new school year bright and early tomorrow morning! Please remember our school day begins at 7:55 and ends at 2:55. Students who are not in their classroom at 7:55 will be counted tardy. Please help your child arrive on time by allowing ample time to unload the vehicle and unpack their book bag before the 7:55 tardy bell. If you are a car rider who plans to eat breakfast at school, please arrive no later than 7:45.


Please review the Silk Hope School handbook for student expectations and basic school policies. The handbook will be a valuable resource throughout the school year as we work together to create a safe and orderly learning environment so that our students can S.O.A.R (Show growth, Offer kindness, Accept responsibility, and Respect yourself and others)

Bus Routes

We ask that you please be patient with us during the first few weeks of school in regards to bus pick up and drop off time as routes are being established.

Car Rider Tags

Remember to display your car rider tag when picking up your child in the afternoon. Make sure that those family members who are responsible for afternoon pick up have been given a tag and directions about the pick up procedure. Car rider tags will be sent home with students Monday for families who were unable to attend our Meet the Teacher night.

Fall Sports

Fall Sports are just around the corner. Please note, physicals and middle school athletic participation forms MUST be submitted to the school BEFORE a student can tryout or practice. If you are in need of a physical form, please stop by the front office or see Mr. Campbell.

School Resource Officer

Silk Hope School would like to welcome School Resource Officer (SRO) Sgt. Cook to our school. We have had a SRO for a number of years but through increased funding from the county we will now be the base school for an SRO. This means they will be able to spend more time at our school assisting us with safety and security as well as positively interacting with our students as they serve in the role of community helpers.

Events for the week include:

  • Kindergarten will hold our “Meet the Teacher” night Wednesday at 5:30

  • Mrs. Jenkins and Mrs. Dickerson will hold their beginning of the year parent meeting Thursday at 5:30

  • Mrs. Clark and Mrs. Teague will hold their beginning of the year parent meeting Thursday at 6:30.

You can find a copy of this message as well as other important information on the Silk Hope School website. Also, don't forget to follow us on Twitter @SilkHopeEagles and on Facebook.

As always, we look forward to SOARING with you. See you tomorrow!
