Silk Hope School Superheros!

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 the 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 an afternoon pick up have been given a tag and directions about the pickup 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

The fall sports season is upon us. Softball tryouts being Tuesday after school until 5pm. Cross Country tryouts will begin September 3rd after school until 4:30pm. Please note, updated 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.


The Silk Hope PTA would like to invite you to partner with them for the 19-20 school year. The PTA membership drive will run through October 31. Individual membership is $10 and a family membership is $20 which includes a $5 concessions punch card. They are also selling sprit wear featuring our new Eagle mascot. And speaking of mascot, don’t forget to submit your idea of our Eagle’s name. All submissions are due September 13.

Chicken Tender Fundraiser Dinner

Mark your calendar for the PTA Chicken Tender Fundraiser Dinner, September 27. Be on the lookout for more information regarding how you can support the PTA’s efforts by volunteering, donating, securing business orders, and eating chicken.

Events for the week include:

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

  • Mrs. Clark, Mrs. Teague, and Mrs. Fuquay will hold their beginning of the year parent meeting Thursday at 5:30.
