  • 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.

    I  want to recognize our 2nd grade teacher Mrs. Foster for being named as a Top 20 finalist for the UCPS Teacher of the Year! Congratulations to Mrs. Foster!

    Thank you and have a good night.

  • Mr. Spencer’s phone message to Shiloh families on 10/19/18:
     
     
    Good evening Shiloh families, this is Mr. Spencer with a few reminders. First, please note that our school now utilizes the Ident-a-Kid check-in/check-out system in our main office. This system is used in schools across UCPS to ensure an added layer of safety and security with the adults visiting our campus. You will need to have your driver's license with you in order to use the system in the event that you are coming on campus to visit or to check-out your child. This system uses the license to run background checks on our visitors. Thank you for your assistance and patience as we implement this system at Shiloh in order to continue to maintain a safe campus.
     
    Speaking of safety, many of you have met Deputy Hancock, our School Resource Officer, from Union County Sheriff's Office. Deputy Hancock is highly visible on our campus, and we are very lucky to have him as a wonderful resource for our school. He is well-known in the community, and everyone at Shiloh appreciates not only his support and positive presence, but also the great partnership that Union County Public Schools has with the Union County Sheriff's Office.
     
    Please remember that next Tuesday, October23 will be an Early Release Day. Buses will run and lunches will be served. Students will be dismissed at 11 AM, so please have dismissal plans in place for your children. Picture re-takes and club pictures will also take place on October 23.
     
    Report cards will go home with students on Wednesday, October 24.
     
    Friday, October 26 will be our annual #ShilohReads day and our Character Day Parade. This is a special day during which we celebrate reading at Shiloh. The parade is for students only, and letters have been sent home with students regarding the parade. Please contact your child's teacher for any questions about the parade.
     
    Lastly, the annual Vickie Johnson Cancer Walk will take place on Saturday, October 27 from 8-11 AM on our track. Come support this important cause, as all proceeds for the event,  including the prizes for the event, will benefit the American Cancer Society.
     
    Thank you and have a good night.

  • Shiloh families- Please remember that we do not have early dismissals between 1:30-2:00, as this is disruptive to the end of our day. As stated in the Shiloh student agenda, “On the RARE occasion that a student must leave school during the day (e.g. dentist appointment), a note should be sent to the teacher in advance. For your child’s protection, a student WILL NOT be permitted to school before the regular dismissal time of 2:00 PM unless the parent comes to the school and clears the dismissal with the office. In such cases it is necessary for the parent of guardian to sign the child’s name and his/her name in the office for early dismissals.” Thank you in advance as work each day to have safe and orderly dismissals for our student population of nearly 600 students.

  • Mr. Spencer’s phone message to Shiloh families 7/20/18:


    Hello Shiloh families, this is Mr. Spencer with a few reminders. First, I want to thank all of you for a fantastic Open House yesterday for grades 1-5. It was great to see so many returning Shiloh families and also to meet our new families. Please remember that our Kindergarten Open House will be from 4-5 PM on July 27.

    Monday, July 23 will be the first day of school for our students. Kindergarten students will attend one day of school between July 23-26 as part of our Staggered Entry process. Please contact the office if you are unsure of your Kindergartener's Staggered Entry day.

    Please remember that our tardy bell rings at 7:30 and our teachers begin their morning instruction at 7:15. Parents, if you will be driving your children to school, we ask that you leave plenty of time in the mornings so that you can have your children here on time. Please do not pass other cars while in the car rider line as this presents a safety issue for students, staff, and other parents. In the afternoon car rider line, please remain in your vehicles and you will pull up to designated spots to pick up your child.

    Students will walk themselves to class each morning beginning the week of August 13. Thank you for your cooperation, as this helps to foster independence in our students.

    Please be sure our teachers are absolutely clear on how your child will go home each day. Transportation changes must be in writing, and if we do not receive a change of transportation, students will be sent home their normal way. We do not take transportation changes verbally from students.

    In the coming days, your child will receive a student agenda. Parents, the student agenda is our main means of communication. Please be sure to check the agenda each night for important information.

    I want to remind our students who ride buses that we expect appropriate behavior on the buses so that our drivers can transport our students safely to and from school. Mrs. Aldredge and I will visit every class over the next few days, and we will discuss bus expectations with all classes.

    Parents, please help to ensure that your children do not bring toys or other inappropriate items to school, as they are distractions to the learning environment.

    Remember that our school supply lists are posted on our website. In addition to information posted on the Shiloh website and school sign, please be sure to follow us on e-news, Twitter, and Facebook for important daily updates and information.

    We have the best PTA around, and we encourage all of you to join our PTA. Please contact us if you are interested. Our PTA does so much for our school, and I want to thank them in advance for their on-going and strong support.

    I want to send a special thanks to the Shiloh staff. They have been working so hard and with a strong sense of purpose over the past few weeks to get this new school year up and running. If you have not worked in a school, I cannot stress to you how much work is involved with opening a new year, and I truly thank our staff for their teamwork and commitment.

    In closing, please know how excited we are to begin the new school year. I look forward to maintaining the positive relationships we have with our entire school community. We know we have the best students, staff, and parents around! Through collaboration, student leadership, goal setting, and empowerment we will continue to maintain our high standards of academic excellence.

    Thank you, and have a good night.
