Mr. Spencer’s phone message to Shiloh families on 11/16/18:
Hello Shiloh families, this is Mr. Spencer with a few reminders. First, please remember that tomorrow, November 17, will be our Family Volunteer Day, known at Shiloh as Read-A-Palooza! The event will take place in our gym from 12-2 on the 17th. Shiloh has been collecting books to benefit the students and schools of Eastern North Carolina who were directly impacted by Hurricane Florence. Our amazing staff and our students' families have donated nearly 1,400 books as of today. Wow- that is fantastic! Thank you to everyone who has donated to this book drive so far. Parents, you can bring new or gently used books, as well as school supplies, to the event tomorrow as well. The first 800 children to attend the event will receive a new book! Other activities that we have planned for Read-A-Palooza include story time with the Shiloh staff, a bookmark station, a puppet making station, a poetry slam, and you can also meet our mascot Blaze! We are proud as a school to provide you with this opportunity and to also give back to other school communities in our state.
Our annual Turkey Trot will take place on Tuesday, November 20 on the Shiloh track starting a 1 PM. Thanks to Coach Roy for his leadership with this event and thanks also to all of our students who will be participating.
Please remember that students will not attend school on November 21-23 for the Thanksgiving holiday.

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.
