Jordan Matthews High School will offer sports physicals for rising 9th grade JMHS student athletes on Saturday, July 15.
Students will need to arrive at 8:00 a.m. for registration and will need to have the sports physical information packet completed and signed.
Silk Hope Art Gallery
Don’t forget to visit the Silk Hope Art Gallery. The gallery features visual artwork by every Silk Hope student that currently participates in art classes. The artwork will be on display for one more week so as you come to visit the school be sure to tour the gallery as we celebrate Silk Hope’s talented students.
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 “Finish Strong”.
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.
8th Grade Promotion Ceremony
8th grade parents, please take note that the 8th grade promotion ceremony will be held Thursday, June 8 at 7pm at Jordan Matthews High School. A reception will be held following the ceremony.
