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!

 

**Food Support  For Parents and Students During the Closure**

We will be offering meals for pick up at 4 sites. We will run them daily from 11:00 am. – 1:00 pm beginning Monday, March 16.  The locations are:

  • The Consentino School  – 685 Washington Street
  • The Nettle School – 150 Boardman Street
  • The YMCA – 81 Winter Street
  • The Boys and Girls Club – 55 Emerson Street

  • Good Morning Silver Hill Families,   

    Today is Monday, March 30th. It’s Mrs. Lucas to start the week off.  Hope you are all ready for another good week although undoubtedly challenging.

    Anyone that signed up for a chromebook to use at home will be getting a phone call in the next few days to set up a pick up time on Friday April 3rd. We will also give directions for the pickup so as to maximize social distancing. The technology will allow everyone to access learning with your teachers from home!

    I hope many Jaguars and their families were able to take a walk or ride around town on a “BEAR HUNT” this weekend, looking for teddy bears at various houses.  Hope to see some pictures too! Thank you to Team Haverhill for sponsoring this fun event.

    Thank you to so many students for sharing pictures of you participating in spirit week from home.  There were some great ones. Check it out on the school website under Jaguar Corner! There is also a district wide video with many of our students posted on the HPS website: http://www.haverhill-ps.org/.  Check it out!  The JAGUARS ROARED!!

     

    HAPPY BIRTHDAYS:

    We have a special Happy Birthday wish for four Jaguars today.

    Three Jaguars celebrated birthdays this past weekend: Riley M., Milly D., and Ms. Carleton.

    One Jaguar has a special day today, March 30th: Lillianie R.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY to all!

     

    AT HOME LEARNING:

    All students should have work given out from their teachers for this last week of enrichment only activities.  They may be in the form of packets that were given out or online assignments. Teachers should be reaching out each day or once a week with daily activities  for the week. If you have any questions, please email your child’s classroom teacher.

    Please remember to read 20 minutes per day and utilize our STMATH program if you can.  You may also use the following link to find valuable resources offered to the entire district. 

    http://www.haverhill-ps.org/supportive-home-learning-resources/

    Chromebooks should be distributed by the end of this week.  Next week all assignments for every grade will be shared suing Google Classroom.  Directions will be sent home to explain how to find those assignments as well.

    Pledge of Allegiance

    I pledge Allegiance to the flag
    of the United States of America
    and to the Republic for which it stands,
    one nation under God, indivisible,
    with Liberty and Justice for all.

    Jaguar Pledge:

    Let’s end with our Silver Hill Jaguar Pledge:

    I pledge today and everyday, to show respect in every way.
    I take ownership for my behavior, with a positive attitude towards my neighbor
    Responsibility is on my mind, I try my best every time.
    Safety is seen throughout the school, we care about others and follow the rules.
    Silver Hill Jaguars, ROAR!!!!!! 

     

    Remember to make us PROUD, follow the pledge in and out of school!

    Keep learning, stay active, wash your hands frequently, and practice social distancing! 

    This week we have more special announcers.  Who do you think will do the announcement tomorrow?????  We shall see ….

    Have a great day, we miss you all,
    Mrs. Lucas ♥

  • Good Morning Silver Hill Families,   

     

    Today is Friday, March 27th. It’s Mrs. Lucas again.  I hope you enjoyed listening to all the special announcers this week, Mr. Parker, Mrs. Neira and Kayleigh, as well as Mrs. Kornachuk.  They all did a great job and were so excited to make the call! 

    The district sent out a survey regarding technology resources at home on Wednesday.  Teachers are attempting to call anyone that they are not sure has technology at home to use for school purposes.  With the new extended time out of school buildings, the best way to connect is through technology. Please be sure to complete the survey.  If you have any trouble you can email the teacher, email myself or call the central office and leave a message for us. We want everyone to be able to access learning with your teachers from home!

    Team Haverhill is sponsoring a fun event for the next three days, the HAVERHILL BEAR HUNT!  It starts today at 9am and runs through Sunday at 6pm.  

    Let’s have some town-wide fun and host a (teddy) bear hunt, based on the book “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt”.  Please put a teddy bear or other stuffed animal in your window or on your porch, visible from the street, by 9am Friday, March 27th and leave it on display until 6pm Sunday, March 29th.  Let’s make this a fun and safe event, and respect everyone’s privacy and safety: stay off properties and keep your 6+ feet! Participants have the option to list what street their bear will be displayed on, but this is not required.   You can share your bear pictures here. How many bears can you find?

    Would love to see some fun photos.  Include the hashtags #BearsofHaverhill  #WelcometoHaverhill

     

    To end our spirit week, today is Pajama Day – because let’s face it, pajamas are the best part of homeschooling and what better way to end the week!

    Remember, we need everyone’s help.  Each and everyday there is a competition among some of the district schools about who has more spirit.  We know Jaguars DO so let’s show everyone in the city our spirit! Keep sharing those pictures!

     

    HAPPY BIRTHDAYS:

    We have a special Happy Birthday wish for three Jaguars today, March 27th:

    Happy Birthday to: Andre P., Daman S., and Joshua G.

    We hope you all have a great birthday! 

     

    AT HOME LEARNING:

    We hope everyone is continuing the reading challenge sponsored by HAVERHILL PROMISE.  “I Stayed Home and Read… To Help Stop the Spread!”

    Let’s get 100% of Jaguars to take the challenge and read for 20 minutes per day.  Let’s all READ!

     

    We are hoping to have all grades communicating  daily assignments next week to help structure the at home learning the best way possible.  We know some may not have technology access as of yet, but the distribution should be the end of next week.  After that more directions will be given for logging in and finding assignments from your teachers online.

  • Good Morning Silver Hill Families,

     Today is Thursday, March 26, 2020.

    As I am sure you have all heard by now, Governor Baker closed all schools until May 4th, 2020.  This saddens us all deeply. We miss the daily interactions with the kids and the ability to truly help them learn new and exciting topics.  Please believe me when I tell you the Silver Hill staff is working so hard together to make this extended leave the most beneficial for your children.  You can expect to see daily schedules to help keep the students more focused and parents less stressed on what is next. You will also see more ZOOM meetings with whole classes being invited, more read alouds by Silver Hill Staff, more community based resources, as well as more guest morning callers. I cannot emphasize how proud I am of the staff at Silver Hill and the parents for their dedication and commitment to the children.  I am also overwhelmed with pride at the many students that have sent in pictures or parents have emailed or called about the work their children are doing! This is surely a difficult time for all and everyone has stepped up to the plate in the Silver Hill community!

     

    Today is Jersey Day  in honor of our favorite sports teams that are not able to play right now.  I hope all of our Jaguars can wear their favorite team jersey and send in a picture for our website!Remember, we need everyone’s help.  Each and everyday there is a competition among some of the district schools about who has more spirit.  We know Jaguars DO so let’s show everyone in the city our spirit! Share those pictures.

    Remember tomorrow’s spirit day is Pajama Day – because let’s face it, pajamas are the best part of homeschooling and what better way to end the week!

     

    HAPPY BIRTHDAYS:

    Grade levels are meeting each day this week and are hoping to have a more clear direction to simplify directions for students and parents moving forward.  I thought I may be able to get that out this week but I would rather wait this week out to get everyone on the same page and be as clear as possible for all.  We truly understand how challenging this can be for everyone in so many different ways. But, we do believe, together we can and will make a difference and lead our Silver Hill Jaguars to the highest level of success!
