Hello Shiloh families, this is Mr. Spencer. I hope all of you have been having a great summer. As we prepare for the upcoming school year, I wanted to be sure to reach out to you at this time. Shiloh's 102nd school year will begin on Monday, July 23. We are very excited to continue the tradition of excellence at our great school. If you are new to our school community or you are a returning family, we certainly welcome you to the upcoming school year !If some of you are no longer at our school, we will update the phone numbers for these calls to remove you, yet we certainly wish you the very best in the future.
Please note that our Open House for grades 1-5 will take place on Thursday, July 19 from 5:00-6:30 PM. Kindergarten will host their Open House on Friday, July 27 from 4:00-5:00 PM. If your child will be a Kindergarten student this year, then s/he will attend one day of school on either July 23, 24, 25, or 26 as part of our Staggered Entry process. All Kindergarten students will attend school starting on Monday, July 30. Please contact the office if you have not received information about your child’s assigned day for Kindergarten Staggered Entry.
Specific classroom and grade level information will be presented at our Grade Level Nights as follows:

Thanks to fundraising efforts by our wonderful PTA and by you, our school community, a beautiful new LED-sign also posts important school information daily. Once the year begins, your child will also receive a student agenda which will serve as the primary means of communication between our teachers and parents, in addition to teacher websites, e-mails, etc.
Our staff has been working very hard to prepare for the upcoming school year, and we want you to know how excited we are to have your family be a part of our school family! Please continue to have your child read each night over the remainder of the summer and feel free to contact our school office (704-296-3035) if you have any questions. Thank you and have a good night.
