Silver Hill Horace Mann Charter School
The Mission of Silver Hill Horace Mann Charter School is to be a thriving learning environment that educates, inspires, challenges and nurtures the minds and well-being of our diverse population of children Kindergarten through Grade 5; where all children achieve at their optimum academic level and develop positive citizenship and character. Silver Hill supports the growth of the Whole Child and the continuous improvement of the teachers in collaboration with the families of Silver Hill and the Haverhill community.
Our students wrote their own version: The mission of SHHMCS is to educate, inspire, challenge and nurture all students (US). Our thriving learning environment (classroom & school) helps us build and develop higher academic skills, positive citizenship and character traits.

We hope you received our 2016 Annual Giving campaign brochure! Please note that all funds raised by the SHHMCS Foundation, Inc. helps financially support our school’s yearly operating expenses* (*expenses such as an annual audit, state mandated data entry etc. and not included in our annual budget funds from HPS) which usually total $25,000; in addition to raising funds for technology, professional development, etc. It’s quite a challenge to meet these financial needs, but the SHHMCS Foundation is working hard to make sure that our school can continue to meet its mission and provide an exceptional education for our children!

Our Grade 2 ‘Good Food’ Garden Project
Thanks to Marlene Stasinos and members of the Bradford Grange, we now have four raised beds, so each grade 2 classroom will have their own garden. Lots of help went into this project based learning activity, with special thanks to Marlene, Nikki Mulloy, and Devan Ferreira for coordinating this project and helping with everything from building the beds to weeding! A big thank you also goes out to Neal, Ollie, Lucas, and Genevieve Ferreira and Brady Mulloy who have been digging, planting, and watering; Becca Marley for helping plant the seedlings with our grade 2 classes; Chris Stasinos from Chris’s farm stand for helping build the raised beds and along with Knapp’s Greenhouse donated the transplants; Kimball Farms for providing the compost; and especially Marlene and all the wonderful members of the Bradford Grange who chose Silver Hill to help educate the children on growing healthy food, helped build the beds, and provided manual labor and the soil and seedlings to bring our Plant unit to life!
Over the summer the vegetables were picked and donated to the Sacred Heart Food Pantry. Thank you to the Eldredge family for taking care of the vegetables all summer!

With the upcoming November 8 election and Question #2, as well as our upcoming charter renewal in 2018, it is very important to share this information to educate Haverhill residents and educators who may have a misconception of what a Horace Mann Charter school represents to the City of Haverhill.
