Dear Silver Hill Community,
I hope you all are having a nice weekend! It is a hectic time of year for sure! We are so thankful for all of the families that made time to attend the Grade 3/4 Winter Concert! The students and Mrs. Kallas put on such wonderful performances!
Holiday Shopping Night – The Silver Hill PTO is hosting a Holiday Shopping night on Tuesday, December 12 from 5-7:30 pm in the cafeteria. This is a great opportunity for students and siblings to buy inexpensive gifts for their family and friends. There will be crafts and refreshments provided. We hope to see you there!

Pokemon (and other) Cards – Please have your children leave their Pokemon cards at home. We have too many instances of cards getting lost or hard feelings over “trades” at school. Thank you for your help and cooperation.
The district is adding text messaging (SMS) capability to SchoolMessenger Communicate, the system we now use for phone calls and emails – Over the following weeks, families can opt-in to receive text messages from SchoolMessenger texting Y to number 67587.
- If they opt-in before January 2, 2024, they will be pre-approved to receive text messages from Haverhill Public Schools.
- If they do not opt-in before January 2, 2024, they will receive a mass communication from SchoolMessenger to their cell phone number on file in SchoolBrains asking for their permission.
There is more information on the District website, at this link:
Thank you! We are working to keep important communication open and transparent with all HPS families and staff.
