Shiloh families- Our Read-A-Thon has officially begun! We are working hard to support literacy at Shiloh and we thank you for your support of this literacy-based fundraiser. Students who bring in donations of $10-$50 will receive prizes at the school. Other prizes can be claimed through the Read-A-Thon website depending on the amount raised. For the fundraiser, our students will read each day for 10 days for up to 30 minutes, depending on the grade level. This will last through August 28. Each student has been given informational flyers to bring home to parents. The money raised will help us to put more books in the hands of students in all grades, support tutors, provide enrichment sessions offered during our breaks, and provide overall support to each homeroom teacher. While sending donations is optional, all students will participate in the reading portion of the fundraiser. The next time you visit our school, you will see our goal board in the main foyer that shows the current amount earned for the school. If you have any questions about the fundraiser, please contact the school. Thank you again for supporting our Read-A-thon!
Mr. Spencer’s phone message to Shiloh families on August 10, 2018:
Hello Shiloh families, this is Mr. Spencer with a few announcements. First, thank you to all of our teachers and staff members for their time in presenting at this week's Grade Level Nights. Parents, thank you as well for a great turnout for those nights. We believe that it is very important to provide parents with grade level and classroom information at this point in the year, so I again thank you for your attendance at the Grade Level Nights. If you were not able to attend the events, please contact your child's teacher.
We are very excited to begin our Read-A-Thon fundraiser on Tuesday, August 14! We held assemblies for each grade level today to explain the fundraiser, and I want to thank our Connect Team teachers for their work in presenting to each grade level. Parents, your child will bring home information on the fundraiser either today or on Monday that will explain the fundraiser. Students will be collecting donations to support the reading that they will be doing in their classrooms over a 10 day period beginning on August 14. The donations will be made through the Read-A-Thon website, and there are also prizes for the students that can be claimed through the website as well. Students will be setting goals for reading and for their donations. In addition to rewards from the company, our school will also reward our students for every $10 they raise, up to $50. We thank you in advance for your assistance with this important fundraiser that will directly support our school. And most importantly, our students will be collecting donations to support their reading! Supporting reading is what we're all about at Shiloh, and this fundraiser certainly supports our students as growing readers. Please contact the school for any questions about the Read-A-Thon fundraiser.
Please remember that Fall Pictures will be taken on Thursday, August 16. And, mark your calendars in advance, as our first Early Release Day of the year will be on Thursday, August 23 at 11 AM. Also, students will not attend school on Friday, August 24 due to it being a Teacher Work Day.
Thank you again for a great start to the school year and for your continued support. Have a good night.
Shiloh’s Read-A-Thon fundraiser will begin August 14 and go until August 28!
We are raising money for our school to support our literacy efforts. We want to put books in the hands of our students, and also have available funds to pay for support personnel who can work with our students to improve their literacy skills. Additionally, we would like to be able to provide incentives and rewards for students who meet their personal goals for reading. As we tell our students, "The more you read, the more you'll know!" Information is being sent home with students on August 10 and August 13 to further explain the fundraiser. Please contact us for any questions. Thank you!
Shiloh families: Our Read-A-Thon fundraiser will start next week! Beginning on August 14, students will raise donations to read during the school day! The fundraiser will go through August 28. Supporting reading in order to support our school is a winning approach in every way! Look for materials to come home this Friday or next Monday, depending on your child’s grade level. Donations will be made on-line through the Read-a-Thon company, while cash donations can accepted as well. Students will also have opportunities to earn prizes for their reading! We are so excited to continue to support reading at Shiloh! Thank you in advance!
Mr. Spencer’s phone message to Shiloh families on August 3, 2018:
Hello Shiloh families, this is Mr. Spencer with a few announcements. First, thank you again for a very smooth start to the new school year. We have had a great two weeks so far here at Shiloh. Both our new and returning students have settled nicely into their routines, and great things are happening in our classrooms.
We are hosting a meeting for parents new to Shiloh on Tuesday morning at 7:45 in our Media Center. We believe it is important to take this time to welcome our new families to our school. During this meeting we will explain more about Shiloh and also provide our new parents with the opportunity to ask questions. We have sent home letters about this meeting with all new students for parents to complete, so please be sure to return those letters to your child's teacher.
Please remember that our Grade Level Night for 1st and 2nd grades will take place on Tuesday, August 7 from 6-7 PM. Grade Level Night for grades 3-5 will take place on Thursday, August 9 from 6-7. Please be sure to attend these Grade Level Nights, as our teachers will provide you with very important information for the school year. If you are a Kindergarten parent, our Kindergarten teachers covered their important information for the year at their Open House on July 27.
Parents, please remember that students in all grades will begin walking themselves to class in the mornings starting on Monday, August 13. From that date on, parents will only be allowed to enter the school in the mornings if they have scheduled meetings. Please note that while we provide many opportunities for parents to visit our school, and we certainly value our volunteers, unexpected morning visits by parents to classrooms disrupt the morning routines for our students and teachers, and they also pull our teachers away from valuable instructional time.
Our school will begin our Read-A-Thon fundraiser on August 13! This important fundraiser will promote reading for our students, as students will collect donations to support their reading. We will send home information on this fundraiser next week. Our Read-A-Thon will last for 10 days. Thank you in advance for supporting our school and our great readers!
Our first PTA Night of the year will take place on Tuesday, August 14 at Pizza Palace from 5-9 PM. We hope to see you there!
Fall pictures will be taken on Thursday, August 16.
Thank you, and have a good night.
5:00 PM - 9:00 PM PTA Night at Pizza Palace (5-9 PM)
