Silver Hill Elementary School

The Mission of Silver Hill Elementary 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 Silver Hill 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.

 

At this time, the school building is closed.  If you need to reach us, please call Central Office at 978-374-3400.  Thank you!

    Sunday, April 19, 2020 – Good Evening Silver Hill Families,

    I hope everyone  was able to enjoy some of the sunshine out in your yards today, especially after the snow just yesterday!  We just have to love living in New England! 

    This coming week is still being treated as school vacation week!  There are no set schedules or expectations for staff or students, therefore no scheduled google meets.  The staff may have posted some enrichment activities on their Google Classrooms if you and/ or your child are looking for something to do.  

    I have also included a few suggestions below.

    Vacation Enrichment Ideas:

    1. Daffodil Days – according to Channel 4 of Boston, CSBN, “For the past six years, thousands of daffodils have lined the 26.2 course to inspire runners and show the city’s resiliency for the Boston Marathon. But this year, the marathon will not be held until September and that message of hope will go to workers on the front lines of the coronavirus crisis. On Friday, thousands of potted daffodils will be placed outside hospitals throughout the Boston area as a show of appreciation for medical workers. There is also a coloring page available for people to color and put in their windows to show support for all essential workers helping to keep us all safe and fed. Please be sure to send in a picture and a special message of support so that we may post on our website under Jaguar Corner! Seaport_Daffodils-for-Boston_ColoringPage_8.5×11.pdf
