SHS Updates and Reminders

PreSchool Story Time

The Silk Hope School Library will host preschool story time again this year. Our first story time for the new school year is scheduled for Wednesday, September 19th, at 10:00 a.m.. Preschool-age children are invited to attend with their caregivers.


Order your yearbooks now! If you order your yearbook before September 30th, the price is only $30. The price will increase to $35 after September. Also, Signature packages are only available for a limited time. $46 includes: Yearbook, personalization, color autograph section, and autograph pens!

Box Tops for Education

One of Silk Hope School's easiest fundraisers is collecting Box Tops for Education. The $0.10 Box Tops quickly add up to hundreds, even thousands of dollars for our school. This year the PTA's goal is to raise $2,000. Visit the Box Tops homepage to learn which products carry the Box Tops label, print out valuable coupons, and much more. A Box Top submission form will be sent home this week with students. Fill it up and return it to school!

Kindergarten & 7th Grade Immunizations

Immunizations for kindergarteners and 7th graders are due by September 25. If you have any questions, please contact the school nurse.

Fall sports get underway this week. The Silk Hope Eagles Softball team will host JS Waters Tuesday and will travel to Pollard Thursday. Silk Hope’s first Cross Country Meet of the year will be held Wednesday at the Silk Hope Farm Heritage Park with our runners competing against Chatham Middle, Bennett, and Bonlee. All middle school athletic events begin at 4:15. Come out and support your Silk Hope Eagles!
