    logo Excellent Rating for SHS Band

    The 7th and 8th grade symphonic band participated in the state Music Performance Adjudication on Wednesday. MPA is a three-day event where bands from the NC Central District play a concert for three judges who give feedback via written and voice recorded comments. They also assign a rating between 1-5, with 1 being the best.  Our Silk Hope 7th and 8th grade band received a score of two from all three judges, for an overall rating of Excellent. Congratulations to band members and Ms. Clemens and thank you Silk Hope Symphonic Band for so positively representing our school at this prominent statewide music event.

    Chicken Tender Fundraiser Tickets

    The PTA Chicken Tender Fundraiser Dinner is one month from Tuesday. Since this event raises money for all Silk Hope students we hope to get each student involved in this fundraising effort.  Students will be receiving a flyer tomorrow with information on how to obtain tickets to sell for the dinner.  Return the bottom portion of the flyer and we will send the requested number of tickets home with your child. All money and any unsold tickets will need to be returned to school by April 19th.  This year the class with the most tickets sold will receive an ice cream party and extra recess.  The same prize will also be given to the class bringing in the most desserts.   Please note, dinner plates can also be purchased at the door without a ticket but selling tickets ahead of time will assist with food preparation.

     

    Distinguished Alumni Awards Program

    Chatham County Schools is launching the Distinguished Alumni Awards Program and invites all community members to nominate Chatham County Schools graduates they believe have made contributions to their profession, community, or have shown a sustained commitment to supporting Chatham County Schools.  Alumni are eligible if they are living, attending a Chatham County School for 2 or more years, and graduated at least 10 years ago.  All graduates from current and historic schools are included.  Selected alumni will be invited to the 2017 commencement ceremonies for their school, provided an honorary framed certificate, their name will be engraved on a plaque in the school, and they will have the opportunity for a brief address to the current graduates about how Chatham County Schools benefited their life.
