Mr. Spencer’s phone message to Shiloh families on July 19, 2017:
Hello Shiloh families, this is Mr. Spencer with a few reminders. First, I want to thank all of you for a fantastic Open House yesterday! It was great to see so many returning Shiloh families and also to meet our new families. Please remember that our Kindergarten Open House/Orientation will begin at 4 PM on July 26. Tomorrow, July 20, will be the first day of school for our students. Please remember that our tardy bell rings at 7:30 and our teachers begin their morning instruction at 7:15. Parents, if you will be driving your children to school, we ask that you leave plenty of time in the mornings so that you can have your children here on time. Please be sure our teachers are clear on how your child will go home each day. Transportation changes must be in writing, and if we do not receive a change of transportation, students will be sent home their normal way.
In the coming days, your child will receive a student agenda. Parents, the student agenda is our main means of communication. Please be sure to check the agenda each night for important information.
I want to remind our students who ride buses that we expect appropriate behavior on the buses so that our drivers can transport all of our students safely to and from school. Mrs. Aldredge and I will visit every class over the next two days, and we will discuss bus expectations with students. Parents, also please help to ensure that your children do not bring toys or other inappropriate items to school, as they are distractions to the learning environment.
Shiloh's Dual Language Spanish immersion program earned the highest rating of "Showcase" last year!
Shiloh families: Please make sure you receive our texts that we send out through Twitter. You do not need to have a Twitter account, as these messages will come right to your phone as texts. This is how we send out instant, important communication to our school community. As of today, we have sent out 1,041 tweets since we started this in 2012! The directions are on our website, and we also have hard copies of the directions in the office. Here are the directions that we have posted on our website for receiving our texts through Twitter:
1) On your cell phones send a text to 40404. (You would normally send a text to a phone contact or a phone number. In this case, just type 40404 in the “To:” box on your phone.
2) In the message section, type “follow shilohbulldogs” (The bolding and quotations are for illustration.)
3) Please note that there is a space between “follow” and “shilohbulldogs.” shilohbulldogs is written as one word, and you do not need to capitalize.
4) You will receive a confirmation text from Twitter.
5) You’re done! You will now be able to receive “tweets” from Mr. Spencer/Mrs. Aldredge about school events.
Shiloh Parents: Please make sure that our teachers are clear on how your children will go home each afternoon. 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.
The faculty and staff of Shiloh Elementary would like to welcome you and your child to a new school year! As a school community, we believe in maintaining high standards and expectations for our students. We are proud to say that we were a 2013 National Blue Ribbon School, and we met our expected growth on the 2016 NC End of Grade tests.
