Shiloh’s first day of the 2016-17 school year was a success! We have now entered our 100th year as a school. Thank you again to everyone for a great day. I continue to be very proud of this school, and many visitors today also commented on how smoothly things were going. Please know that our entire staff is looking forward to working with you and your children in order to have a fantastic year.
Parents, please make sure that our teachers are absolutely clear on how your children will go home each afternoon. We had several students today whose parents did not follow what they indicated for afternoon transportation on our forms. Any changes in transportation need to be in writing, not through e-mails or through word of mouth by a student. If we do not receive a change of transportation, our students will be sent home their normal way in the afternoon. Thank you in advance for helping us to get all of our students to and from school safely and correctly each day.
Mr. Spencer's Connect-ed from 7-20-16
Good evening Shiloh families, this is Mr. Spencer with a few announcements. First, it was great to see so many of you at yesterday's Open House. I want to thank all of our staff for their hard work in preparing for Open House. If you were unable to attend Open House, please contact your child's teacher for any questions. We are looking forward to opening our 100th year as a school! Please remember that UCPS Year Round schools begin tomorrow, July 21. Remember that our tardy bell rings at 7:30, and our teachers begin their instructional day at 7:15 so please do your best to have your child here by that time.
We have many new families to Shiloh this year, and we ask that you remain patient in our car rider line, and please do not pass cars in our car rider line. That creates a safety hazard and ultimately holds up the line. If you will be driving your child to school, please pull up as far as directed by our staff. If your child will be riding the bus to school, please remember to have your child at his/her stop 10 minutes prior to your assigned time.
Remember that all supply lists have been posted on the Shiloh website for this school year. Thank you again to all of our staff who have worked so hard in preparing for this year. Once your child receives a student agenda, please be sure to check that each night, as the agenda is the primary means of communication between the school and home. Our teachers also maintain websites and they are available by e-mail. We communicate frequently with our school community through e-blasts, text messages through Twitter, our Facebook page, our website, our school sign, and of course these phone messages. Please be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and e-news. Additionally, please check the Shiloh calendar on our website frequently for important school information.
In closing, thank you again for your continued support. Shiloh is an amazing school, and I am very proud to serve as the principal here for my 6th year. If you are new to our school, you are joining a very strong educational community that is now 100 years old and full of school pride. Go Bulldogs! Thank you again, and have a good night.

Mr. Spencer’s first back to school message to parents from 7/11/16:
Good evening Shiloh families, this is Mr. Spencer with a few announcements. First, I hope everyone has had an enjoyable and relaxing summer. Believe it or not, the new school year is right around the corner. Our staff has been working hard to prepare for what is shaping up to be another incredible year of learning here at Shiloh. I want to be sure to welcome all new Shiloh families as well as those returning families. If you are no longer a member of our school community, please note that we continue to update this phone list and we apologize in advance should you receive a few more messages in the near future.
Our Open House will take place on Tuesday, July 19 from 3:00-4:00 PM for students with last names A-L and from 4:15-5:15 PM for students with last names M-Z. Please be on time as these are not drop-in sessions. Parents with more than one student at Shiloh can certainly attend both sessions if you'd like. Students will be able to find out their teachers during Open House. Our first day of school will be on Thursday, July 21. Kindergarten students will attend one day of school during the first four days of the year, and parents will be informed of that staggered entry day during Open House. If you are a Pre-K parent and have questions about the year, please contact the office.
Please be sure to check the calendar on our website for important dates that have been added for the upcoming year. The calendar is updated frequently, so please be sure to check that periodically. Also, be sure to follow us on Facebook and sign up to receive our text messages through Twitter. Information for receiving the texts through Twitter can be found on our website, along with a link to receiving our e-news e-mail blasts. Thank you again for being such an amazing and supportive group of families. If you have any questions before the year starts, please give us a call. Thank you, and have a good night.
On Thursday, July 21 Shiloh opened its doors for the start of the 2016-17 school year. This is a very special school year as Shiloh becomes one of a small number of UCPS schools to reach the 100 year mark. That’s right- this is Shiloh’s 100th year! In true Shiloh style, the first day of school went very smoothly, and our staff members enjoyed seeing returning students and meeting new students.
On Tuesday, July 19, Shiloh opened its doors to the school community for its annual Open House. The school was proud to host this exciting event as it enters into its 100th year! Shiloh staff were eager to greet both new and returning Shiloh families and students. During the event, parents and students had a chance to meet their teachers and to learn about important school information for the upcoming year.
