Mr. Spencer’s phone message to Shiloh families on 5/19/17:
Hello Shiloh families, this is Mr. Spencer with a few reminders. Please remember that End of Grade testing for students in grades 3-5 begins next week. The Reading test will take place on May 23, the Math test will take place on May 24, and 5th grade Science will take on May 25. Our teachers and students have been working very hard all year to prepare for the tests. Students in all grades must be in school and on time on testing days. Late arrivals are disruptive to our testing environment. If your child will be testing on those days, please ensure that s/he gets a good night's sleep and a healthy breakfast. Thank you again to our parent volunteers who will be assisting with the testing.
Remember that our Kindergarten end of year ceremony will take place on June 1 at 8 AM in the gym and our 5th grade promotion ceremony will take place on June 2 at 8 AM in the gym. June 2 is the last day of school for students on the UCPS Year Round calendar.
There are other end of year activities going on for specific grade levels, so please be sure to check our calendar or contact your child's teacher for any questions. Thank you and have a good night.

Kindergarteners in Mrs. Livesey’s class got to work with Instructional Technology Facilitator Henry McGee this morning, as they learned how to use ActivExpressions in an activity practicing their addition facts. ActivExpressions are a student response system that enable teachers to poll their students to assess progress and based on their responses create lessons to meet specific student needs.
A meteorologist from Charlotte’s WSOC TV came to Shiloh Elementary on Wednesday, April 26th to speak to 5th graders to supplement our weather unit. John Ahrens spoke about the wonders of weather around the world. He helped further explain how meteorologists use science to predict upcoming weather events from data collected through observation and measurements.
Today was a fantastic kick-off to a very important week for our family: International Week at Shiloh. My daughters have been extremely excited and proud about the dances they have been practicing. They couldn't wait for Monday to wake up early, get their hair done, get their authentic dresses on, and represent their assigned countries.
