    Dear Silver Hill Families,

    Sorry for the late mid week update. It’s hard to keep track of all of the events! There was an error in last week’s update for the times for our ROARS Assembly tomorrow. Grades 3, 4, and 5 will have their assembly at 9:30, and K, 1, and 2 will be at 10:30. Teachers have sent out the invitations.

    We just finished up our first week of MCAS testing, and all in all, it was a good week. We tell the students to be sure to get a good night’s sleep, get to school on time, answer every questions, and just do their best. Please remember that attendance is very important, so we ask that unless it is an emergency you do not make appointments on testing days. Also, if a student comes into school late, we cannot allow them to enter the classroom if the testing has started, and they will have to do make-ups. Thank you!

    We welcome our newest baby Jaguar, Callie Rae Hernandez. Mom is first grade teacher, Jennifer Gagnon. Callie was born on Friday, April 6th. Mom and Callie are doing great, and we send them lots of happy wishes!

    Our Student/Staff Basketball game is Friday at 9:30. Always a rip roaring good time! And then at the end of the day we send the students home for our spring break vacation next week. I hope everyone has a wonderful week off, with some fun adventures, relaxing family time, and great spring weather!

    I’m off to be the caller for round two of Bingo for Books. Grades K-2 was a blast, and everyone had BINGO!!

    Warm regards,

  • Weekly Update 3-20-18 and Picture Day Today!


    Dear Silver Hill Families,

    Happy First Day of Spring!  The warm weather really is coming (just after the next snow!!)

    Don’t forget…Picture Day today!

    I have attached the new dates for the Superintendent candidates’ receptions and final interviews this Thursday, March 22. With all the snow days, these have been delayed so Jared Fulgoni and Anthony Pope will have receptions at 5:00 and 6:00 respectively, with interviews following, and all three finalists, including Margaret Marotta, will have closing statements at 9:00. These will all be held at City Hall. I hope you have a chance to attend.

    MCAS testing for grades 3, 4, and 5 is coming up soon, dates are posted on our web site and will be listed in Planning Ahead, below. PLEASE do not plan any vacations or appointments for your child/children during these dates. Schools receive credit for participation, and part of the scoring for the Level rating is based on attendance during testing. We have tried to get you the dates as soon as possible so you can plan ahead. Thank you in advance for sending your child well rested and ready to go on MCAS days. Each grade level 3-5 will have practice tests, so every child can experience the testing protocol and sample questions before the actual testing. No need to stress, it’s what our students learn and do everyday!

    Our Tuesday after school fifth grade “Leading Ladies” group is going great! Ms. Symmes has asked that I remind parents/guardians that you need to come into the building and sign your daughter out before she can leave.  We will not be releasing any child unless a parent/guardian has signed her out. Thank you!

    Hope to see many of you at the VIP Dance for grades 3, 4, 5 on Friday from 6:00 – 8:00, and don’t forget the Health Fair on Saturday from 11:00 – 2:00. This was a great event last year, with lots of valuable resources and information…and fun things to do!

    Lots going on this week and in the upcoming weeks, with new events being added each week, so please be sure to check the Planning Ahead!

    Warm regards,
