In the fall of 2012, a group of kindergartners made history as they walked into the Spanish immersion classes at Shiloh and Sun Valley elementary schools. Those kindergartners are now fifth graders who are preparing to make history again as the first students to participate in the district’s Spanish immersion program at Sun Valley Middle.
Shiloh's Girls on the Run team participated in their annual Spring 5K on April 28 in Lake Park. Coaches Mrs. Kincaid, Mrs. Livesey, and Mrs. Long have worked with our wonderful girls throughout the school year. The girls had a great time at the race, and they have so much to be proud of!
