Mr. Spencer’s phone message to Shiloh families on May 25, 2018:
Hello Shiloh families, this is Mr. Spencer with a few announcements. Today, May 25, is our last day of school and I want to begin by thanking all of you for a great school year. 2017-18 was an awesome year due to the support from all of our parents. We know we have the best students around, so I also want to thank our students for being so wonderful throughout the year. Lastly, I want to send a special thanks to the entire Shiloh staff. I am finishing my 7th year as the principal here, and I continue to be amazed by the dedication shown by our staff. They go above and beyond in everything they do each day. This staff is so caring and kind hearted that anyone of them would literally give their last dollar if it meant that they would be helping a child. I have seen so many acts of kindness towards our students and families that this staff has done over the years, most of them unknown by others, and they never cease to amaze me with their dedication.
If you will be returning to Shiloh next year, we can't wait to see you back here on July 23. If you are leaving our school, then I certainly wish you the very best and I am glad that you had this time to spend with us. I send a special send-off to our 5th graders. Good luck in middle school next year, and we all look forward to hearing about the great things that you will accomplish as you move through your lives.
Thank you again to everyone for a successful year. I wish everyone a safe and relaxing summer. Please enjoy your time with family and friends, and also remember to find time to read. Thank you again, and have a good night.
Message from UCPS Child Nutrition: This message is to give notice to all parents and guardians that Meal Account Balance Due letters are being sent home.
These letters are being sent home with students and/or are being mailed directly to your home from the School Nutrition office.
These letters are for meals that have been charged by your students here in our cafeteria.
School Nutrition allows students to charge meals because good nutrition is essential to learning, and we understand that sometimes children forget or lose their money. It is of the upmost importance that these charges be paid as soon as possible. Payments may be made by cash or check in the cafeteria or by credit card on K12PaymentCenter.com
If you have any questions about the balance due letters please contact the School Nutrition office at (704)296-3000.
Parents: If you are driving on our campus, please do not stop on the crosswalk that is located as you make the left into our parking lot. Students use that crosswalk, and we do not want them to have to walk around vehicles. If the traffic is backed up, please be sure to not stop your vehicle on the crosswalk. Thank you for your support of keeping our students safe.

On May 23, Shiloh and Sun Valley Elementary held a special ceremony to recognize the current 5th grade students in the Spanish Dual Language Immersion program. These are the first students in UCPS to go through the Spanish immersion program! Teachers, parents, and administrators from both schools, along with UCPS Central Services staff attended the event held at Sun Valley Elementary.
In the fall of 2012, a group of kindergartners made history as they walked into the Spanish immersion classes at Shiloh and Sun Valley elementary schools. Those kindergartners are now fifth graders who are preparing to make history again as the first students to participate in the district’s Spanish immersion program at Sun Valley Middle.
