Mr. Spencer’s phone message to Shiloh families on June 2, 2017:
Hello Shiloh families, this is Mr. Spencer with a few announcements. First, I want to thank everyone for a fantastic school year! The 2016-17 school year has officially come to an end, and I want to say how thankful I am for such an amazing staff, supportive parents, and of course wonderful students. I hope everyone finds some time to relax with family and friends over the summer.
If you will be returning to Shiloh next year, please note that July 20 will be the first day of school for UCPS Year Round schools. If you will not be with us next year, then I wish you the very best, and I am glad that you were able to spend time with us at Shiloh. I want to send a special message to our 5th graders to wish them the very best as they move on to middle school.
I say it many times, but Shiloh is truly a very special school, and I feel so honored to be a part of this great school with such a strong legacy of excellence. This year was my 23rd year in education, and I continue to be impressed each day by the high quality of teaching and dedication found on the Shiloh staff. Thank you, Shiloh staff, for going above and beyond each day for our students. To our school community members, you are the best. Thank you as well.
In closing, have a great summer, remember to read, and until we meet again- have a good night.
On June 2, Shiloh 5th grader Madison McLeod became the first recipient of Shiloh’s new Steve Morris Education Award. The award, consisting of a certificate and a scholarship to the winner, recognizes one 5th grade student at Shiloh who demonstrates the traits and qualities of a future teacher.
While we are always sad to see our 5th graders go, we enjoy planning and taking part in all of the end of year activities that take place in their honor. One of the first events was BASH, where students were encouraged to take a leap back in time, dress in 50s fashion, and dance the afternoon away with rootbeer floats, popcorn, cupcakes, and the yearbook reveal.
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.
