Hopes and Dreams Survey / Encuesta
This fall Silk Hope School embarked on a journey to re-create our school’s mission and vision statements. We would like to invite every student and their family members to participate in the following Hopes and Dreams exercise. We hope that it will be a meaningful opportunity for children, parents, and guardians to talk about the future of our school. The survey was sent home Friday. You can also access the survey on the SHS website.
Hemos decidido reescribir la misión y visión de nuestra escuela y queremos invitarlos a participar en la siguiente actividad. Esperamos que esta sea la oportunidad para hablar en casa acerca del futuro de la Escuela de Silk Hope.
