Mr. Spencer’s phone message to Shiloh families on 11/2/18:
Good evening Shiloh families, this is Mr. Spencer with a few announcements. First, I want to thank all of our teachers and staff for their hard work in preparing for our recent Mad Scientist Day. Our staff did an amazing job in preparing and presenting their experiments and activities for that day. Our students truly enjoyed learning about science on that special day. Likewise, we want to thank our parents as well for supporting this event. I know I speak for everyone here when I say we can't wait for next year's Mad Scientist Day!
Thanks to our 3rd grade teachers, staff, and parents who went on the trip to Old Salem today. The students enjoyed learning about the history of the area while on the trip.
Please note that Shiloh will be a designated Union County voting location on Tuesday, November 6. Parents, please keep this in mind when coming to our campus, as we do expect to have more cars than usual in our parking lot and on our campus throughout the day, as the polls are open from 6:30 AM- 7:30 PM.
Our SHOW ME literacy-based event will take place on Friday, November 9 from 5:00-6:00 PM in our Media Center. Students will be able to participate in a book swap if they bring gently used books to school, with parental permission. Parents will also receive helpful tips for helping with reading at home. Our MASH movie night will follow SHOW Me, with the movie Ninjago (PG) being shown in the gym starting at 6:30. Admission is free and drinks and snacks will be for sale.
Lastly, please remember that students will not have school on Monday, November 12 for the Veterans Day Holiday.
Thank you, and have a good night.

Fifth Grade extended our curriculum by exploring the skeletal system a bit more through owl pellet examination. The students loved this experiment equally as much as they were grossed out by it! They had to identify the type of animal the owl ate by examining the bones found within the pellet and comparing it to an identification chart.
Last year, 15 UCPS schools received state recognition for their Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) systems, the data-driven initiatives that improve social competence and academic achievement for students. The occasion marked the highest number of schools in district history to be recognized by the state for helping to create a positive and safe school wide culture.
NC House Representative for Union County District 68, Craig Horn, visited Sara Ryan, UCPS School Psychologist, at Shiloh Elementary on October 22 to receive his Friends of School Psychology Award from the NC School Psychology Association. Representative Horn and Mrs. Ryan first met over coffee at Alice Jules last spring to talk about the roles of school psychologists in supporting school safety and mental health in NC public schools.
