    Parents, your students did such a great job at the Eagle Fun Run Friday!  Silk Hope Students ran over 9,000 laps and celebrated the nearly $14,000 that had been pledged!! Thank you for supporting our school these past two weeks. Even though the Fun Run is over, we are not finished yet. It is time to focus on collections! Please have all of your pledge money turned in by this Friday, February 23.  Simply place all pledge money into the collection envelope your students came home with Friday and send that back to school. Also, sponsors can pay online if they entered their email address on funrun.com. Thank you again for your support of our school!

    Literacy Fair

    Students and families have an opportunity to work on projects together for an upcoming event at our school. The Silk Hope School Library is sponsoring our first school-wide Literacy Fair and Author-Illustrator Expo on March 1st and 2nd.  The concept of a literacy fair is similar to science fair, in that students may enter a display sharing information.  In this case, displays can feature a favorite book, author, topic or type of literature. Students may also enter a display showing their own work as writers and artists. Family members are encouraged to help with this project. An information flyer with more information was sent home this week. A copy can also be found on the school website.

     

    Nuestros Estudiantes y sus familias tienen la oportunidad de trabajar juntos en el próximo evento que está organizando en la escuela. Se llevará a cabo la primera feria literaria y la exposición de autores e ilustradores los días primero y dos de marzo. El concepto de la feria literaria es similar al de la feria de la ciencia porque los estudiantes van a compartir información. En este caso pueden hablar sobre su libro, autor, tema, o género de literatura favorito. También pueden mostrar su trabajo como autores y artistas. Invitamos a todos los miembros de la familia a participar en este evento y colaborar con el proyecto. Pronto recibirán más información o pueden encontrarla en la página de la escuela.
