    Dear Silver Hill Families,

    Wow! Those Pats!! What a way to start the week J

    We have another fun event coming up this week! Instead of this month’s Coffee with the Principal, we are holding a Marvelous Math Night this Wednesday, January 24 at 6:00. This is a fun hands-on math activities night for students in grades 3, 4 and 5 and a parent/guardian.  Your student will teach you a variety of math activities from classroom instruction, including using chrome books.  To accommodate enough families we are limiting participation to one adult per student please.  Use the attached form to reserve your space for some math fun and activities to do at home!

    A reminder that this Friday, January 26, is an early release day for staff professional development. Early Birds will be dismissed at 11:15.

    Have a great week…no snow days!

  • Martin Luther King Day, Monday 1-15-18

    January 12, 2018

    Dear Silver Hill Families,

    Happy Friday! I apologize that I did not send out a Weekend Update. You may have guessed that this has been a very busy week after those cold snow days! I wanted to remind everyone that Monday is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  We do not have school on Monday in honor of Dr. King’s work in civil rights, especially teaching nonviolent ways to bring equality to our country. In his famous “I Have A Dream Speech” delivered on August 28, 1963, Dr. King preached his vision that still holds true today.

    I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. 

    I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.” 

    I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood. 

    I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. 

    I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. 

    I have a dream today. 

    I have a dream that one day the state of Alabama, whose governor’s lips are presently dripping with the words of interposition and nullification, will be transformed into a situation where little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls and walk together as sisters and brothers. 

    I have a dream today.

    Enjoy the long holiday weekend, stay warm, root for the Patriots on Saturday, and most of all, share Dr. King’s dream by one random act of kindness on Monday!

    Warm regards,


    January 15 – Martin Luther King, Jr Day – No School

    January 24 – Coffee with the Principal – Title 1 Math Night (Grades 3-5)

    January 26 – Early Release PD Day

    January 26 – PTO Skateland 5:30


  • Attention: No School January 4,2017

    Given the weather forecasts which seem to be consistent among reporting agencies, that we are going to get hit with a significant storm on Thursday and so that all families can properly prepare I’m hereby canceling school for Thursday January 4th for all schools in Haverhill. Again, there will be no school in Haverhill on Thursday.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding.

    Jim Scully

    Superintendent of Schools

  • Weekend Update: January 2, 2018

    January 2, 2018

    Dear Silver Hill Families,

    Happy New Year! 2018 will be remembered as the year that started out with frigid temperatures and another Super Moon!  As a teacher, one of my favorite books to read was Owl Moon, written by Jane Yolen. I was even lucky enough when my own two boys were much younger to have a chance to actually hear an owl in our backyard during one very cold full moon night. An adventure we still remember! If you have never read the book, tonight would be the perfect time to start off the new year with a new reading adventure!

    With these cold temperatures, we want to be sure that all children are dressed appropriately. Although we will not be going outside unless it is 30 degrees, even coming off the bus can be brutally cold.  We like to keep extra clothing at school just in case. I will be putting up our hat and mitten tree, and if you have any extra hats, mittens, and gently used boots and snow clothing, they are always greatly appreciated!

    I wish you all a new year filled with good health and happiness, and lots of fun learning adventures!
