School Announcements
First Day of School

Monday, August 25 will be the first day of school for students. School starts promptly at 8:00 am and dismisses at 2:45 pm.  If parents choose to walk their child to the classroom, please park in the side parking lot or behind the gym.  Kindergarten students will begin school on a staggered enrollment schedule and should have received notification of the staggered entry date via a summer mailing.  If you have questions regarding which day you are scheduled to attend school please call the front office. 
 
School Supply Lists
Meet the Teacher Night
Silk Hope students and families are invited to "Meet the Teacher" night Thursday, August 21 from 5:00-7:00pm.  Class lists will be posted at the bus parking lot entrance as well as the front office.  We look forward to seeing you and are excited about the upcoming school year! 
Softball Tryout Information
Attention Silk Hope softball players. We will not have sports physicals at school this year. You will need to get a physical before school starts in order to try out for the team. Physical forms are available at school and there is an Urgent Care in Pittsboro that does sports physicals. Softball tryouts will begin on August 27th. For more information contact Mrs. DeCristofaro.
Boys Soccer
For any 7th or 8th graders who would like to try out for the boys soccer team, you will need to get a sports physical from your pediatrician, family doctor, or clinic before tryouts. Sports physical forms are available from Karen at the front office. Tryouts will be Friday, September 5th right after school and continue into the following week Monday and Tuesday after school.

We are also looking for team managers. Any 6th grade boys who would like to tryout for the team NEXT year (when they are in 7th grade) and any 8th grade girls who played on the girls soccer team last year are welcome to join us at tryouts as potential team managers.

If you have shin guards and soccer cleats, please bring them to tryouts. If not, coupons will be handed out at tryouts so that you can get them at a discount. You will also need plenty of water to drink.

As a reminder, this information will also be sent home with 6th/7th/and 8th graders the first day of school.
