Mr. Spencer’s phone message to Shiloh families on 5/9/19:
Good evening Shiloh families, this is Mr. Spencer with an important announcement about next school year. Please note that at the May 7 Union County Board of Education meeting, the Board approved new names for our united campus beginning in the 2019-20 school year. The current Sun Valley Elementary, which will house Pre-K through 2nd graders next year, will be called Shiloh Valley Primary School. The current Shiloh Elementary School, which will house 3rd-5th graders next year, will be called Shiloh Valley Elementary School. Dr. Rodgers and I were very excited to announce the new names at our Meet the Principal event held at Shiloh on May 8 through a Facebook Live reveal!
Both schools and administrative teams look forward to working together on this exciting new chapter in the life of our community. The next Meet the Principal Night will be held on Tuesday, May 14 from 6-7 PM at Sun Valley Elementary School. This event will be streamed on Facebook live for families unable to attend. We hope to see you there!
In closing, please note that both schools will continue to communicate important information to our school communities as details become available, including transportation and start times.
Thank you, and have a good night.

You can help at home by communicating positive thoughts and a "can do" attitude with your child. Our school goal is for every student to show growth and we believe they CAN do it! You can also help by making sure they get a good night sleep and a healthy breakfast. In addition, please arrive on time to school on testing days, and let your techer know if your child will be out sick.
Thank you in advance to all of our volunteer proctors who will be helping with testing. It takes a village! If you'd like to help please contact Mrs. Aldredge at email@example.com or at 704-296-3035.
At the March 5 Union County Public Schools Board of Education meeting, the new school model for Shiloh and Sun Valley Elementary Schools was approved. As discussed in our previous meetings with our school community, this model will take effect for the 2019-20 school year. Under this model, Shiloh Elementary School will move to the Traditional Calendar. Sun Valley Elementary School will become our Pre-K through 2nd building and Shiloh Elementary will become our 3rd-5th grade building. We understand and respect that you may have questions about next year, including the bell schedules and transportation plan. We are in the initial planning phases for those items and will provide periodic updates to our school community as that information is available. We will also provide information in the coming weeks about possible summer enrichment programs. We appreciate all of your feedback and input during this process. We look forward to being better together!
The staffs of both Shiloh and Sun Valley Elementary Schools continue to build strong relationships as we move ahead with next year’s merging of the two schools. Dr. Rodgers and Mr. Spencer have wasted no time in beginning to build relationships between the staff members of both schools.
As a member of the Elite 8 schools for the Books and Brackets Reading Challenge, Shiloh’s 3rd grade students were fortunate to attend the final celebration at Wingate University.
