Mr. Spencer’s phone message to Shiloh families on 3/16/18:
Hello Shiloh families, this is Mr. Spencer with a few announcements. First, I want to say how proud I am of all the great reading that our 3rd and 4th grade students did for the UCPS Books and Brackets reading challenge! Our school made it to the Sweet 16 Round this year, and that is fantastic! Thank you also to those teachers and to our 3rd and 4th grade parents for supporting all of that great reading at home. No matter what grade our students are in, we certainly want to continue to encourage reading at home.
Great job to our 5th grade students for their work on their Heritage Projects which were on display at last night's annual Heritage Night event. The students put in a great amount of work, effort, and research into these projects and we thank them for their work. Thank you also to our teachers and parents for your support as well.
Please note that the week of March 19 will be Cultural Week here at Shiloh. Our Spanish immersion teachers and Global Committee have worked hard to plan an eventful and educational week for our students. Each day will have its own theme for each grade level that is related to cultural awareness. In particular, students will wear a t-shirt from their home, or favorite, country on Monday. There will be cultural dance performances from our Spanish immersion classes on Tuesday. Lessons will be taught on Wednesday and Thursday with cultural components relating to Science and Social Studies. There will be a World Cup soccer activity for grades 3-5 on Thursday, and all students will be able to participate in our Cultural Parade to be held on Friday. These events, which will be for our students and staff, reflect the importance that our school places on recognizing and respecting cultural diversity within our school community.
Our Book Fair will also be open during the week of March 19. It will be open until 5 PM March 19-21, and until 7 PM on March 22. March 22 will be the final day for the Book Fair.
We have a Battle of the Books team competing on Monday, March 19. Best of luck to our team!
Report cards will go home on Wednesday, March 21.
Our 4th grade performance will take place on March 22 during the day for students, and at 7 PM in the gym for parents. Come on out Thursday night to support our 4th graders!
Our two week Spring Intersession begins after dismissal on Friday, March 23. That means that once school dismisses on March 23, Shiloh's students will not return to school again until Monday, April 9.
Thank you for your continued support, and have a good night.

From Sun Valley Middle School Band Director, Natassia Day:: As you may know, your 5th graders visited Sun Valley Middle School last week. During their visit, our 8th Grade Band performed for them and I had the opportunity to talk to them about 6th Grade Band Registration. At Sun Valley Middle School, students start on the four primary instruments: Flute, Clarinet, Trumpet, and Trombone. Throughout the 6th grade year they can audition for specialty instruments such as: Alto Sax, Tenor Sax, Bass Clarinet, French Horn, Baritone, Tuba, and Percussion. The clarinet and trombone sections have the most options when it comes to auditioning for specialty instruments.
Students can sign-up on the Sun Valley Middle Beginning Band Website: https://svmsbeginningband.blogspot.com beginning NOW through Friday, March 9!! On Tuesday, March 13 the instrument selections will be post and a final parent meeting will take place at Sun Valley Middle School on Tuesday, March 27 at 5 or 6PM (parents only need to attend ONE session).
