    Star Polisher / Estrella del mes

    Congratulations to Mrs. Daniel, our Silk Hope School Star Polisher for the month of April. Thanks for all you do Mrs. Daniel!

    Felicitaciones a la maestra Daniel por ser seleccionada como el miembro destacado del personal de la escuela durante el mes de abril. Gracias por todo lo que hace maestra Daniel.

    Did You Know? / ¿Sabía usted….?

    As the year begins to come to a close, please make sure your child has an adequate amount of money in their lunch account to ensure that a negative balance is not remaining at the end of the year. Money remaining at the end of the year will roll over to the next year.  It also will roll over to high school and to any school in the Chatham County School system.

    Al aproximarse el fin de año escolar les pedimos que verifiquen que sus hijos tengan dinero en su cuenta del almuerzo para que no tengan un saldo negativo. El dinero que queden debiendo este año, aparecerá en el balance del año entrante. También aparecerá en la preparatoria y en cualquier escuela del condado.  


    Silk Hope Art Gallery / Galería de arte de Silk Hope  

    The Silk Hope Art Gallery is now open. The gallery features visual artwork by every Silk Hope student that currently participates in art classes here at Silk Hope School. The artwork will be on display for through the end of the week, so as you come to visit the school, be sure to tour the gallery as we celebrate Silk Hope’s talented students.

    La galería de arte de nuestra escuela ya se encuentra abierta, allí podrán encontrar trabajos de cada estudiante que asiste a clase de arte en Silk Hope. Los trabajos estarán exhibidos hasta el viernes. Son bienvenidos a venir a la escuela y observar el talento de nuestros estudiantes.

    Kindergarten Orientation

    Orientation for rising kindergarten students will be held Monday at 12:30. We invite all rising kindergarten students and their parents to join us but we especially would like to see families who have a child attending school for the first time.

    La reunión de orientación para los futuros estudiantes de kinder se llevará a cabo el lunes a las 12:30. Invitamos a los estudiantes y sus papás para que nos acompañen este día, especialmente a las familias que por primera vez asisten a la escuela con uno de sus hijos/as.

    End-of-Grade Testing / Exámenes de final de año

    Our end of year testing will begin later this week. Dates for each test can be found on the Silk Hope School calendar on the school website.  Please make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep, arrives to school on time, and is ready to do their best. We’ve had an outstanding year and we want our students to show how much they have grown throughout the year.

    To show our support for one another during this time of year we would like to encourage students, all students in grades K-8, to wear a blue shirt or a Silk Hope School shirt during testing days. Wearing the same color will hopefully remind students that we are all in this together and our unity in color will serve as a visual display of support for one another.


    Los exámenes de final de año dan inicio esta semana. Pueden mirar la fechas en el calendario que se encuentra en el sitio web de la escuela. Por favor, asegúrense que sus hijos duerman bien la noche anterior, que lleguen temprano a la escuela y que hagan su mayor esfuerzo. Este ha sido un gran año y queremos que nuestros estudiantes muestren todo lo que han aprendido y lo mucho que han progresado.

    Para mostrar nuestro apoyo, invitamos a todos los estudiantes a vestir una playera azul durante los días de exámenes. La idea de vestir todos el mismo color es darnos cuenta que como una familia, estamos todos juntos en esta parte final del año y usar el mismo color nos da la idea de unión.
