This is Tom Childers contacting you from Antioch Elementary. I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving and is preparing for the upcoming holiday season.
This past week our students and staff participated in a monthly fire drill as well as practicing a lockdown drill. The lockdown drill is designed to keep everyone safe in the event of that an intruder would enter our campus. Students and staff performance on both of these safety drills was simply amazing. I feel our school is prepared to handle any emergency that may arise.
Wednesday is an early release day and students will be dismissed at 11:00 am. Please make the necessary transportation arrangements for your children.
On Thursday, our school will participate in An Hour Code. This is a global event that draws over 300 million participants and gives them the opportunity to learn how to write computer code. Each student in our building will participate in this program for one hour. Visit this site for more information https://hourofcode.com/us
Report Cards will go home on Thursday and the Antioch School Chorus will hold their winter concert on Thursday at 5:30 pm.
Friday will be a football Friday as our hometown Carolina Panthers prepare for a home game against the San Diego Chargers. Students may wear their favorite team gear.
On Monday, December 12th and Tuesday, December 13th, our third, fourth and fifth grade students will be involved in a district benchmark assessment. Our schedule will be altered on those days and I ask that you check with your child's teacher before planning to visit for lunch. It is very important that all of our third, fourth and fifth graders attend school on time on these two dates.
Thank you for supporting our school - working together as one team on one mission, we are meeting needs, challenging minds and celebrating accomplishments.
Until next time… Have a great evening!
