    Siler City Elementary School Families,

    Our PTA meeting and Holiday Performance will be held this Tuesday, December 12th, in the multi-purpose room from 6:00 to 7:00.  Come out and hear important updates from SCE’s PTA as well as watch our kids share in the holiday spirit.

    Our school has begun collecting Box Tops again.  Please consider saving Box Tops from your food items and dropping them off with Itzel Ocelot in the front office. They seem small, but the Box Tops can really add up for our school financially.  As always, we appreciate the support.

    We are excited to announce that we will be having an International Night on February 23 here at SCE.  As part of the evening, we’re hoping you all will be willing to bring food that represents your culture, and to share some things from where you are from.  We have sent home a survey this week for you all to fill out to get feedback on the evening and to let us know if you would be willing to help out.  Please complete the survey and return by this Monday, December 11.

    Referrals for evaluation for AIG are being accepted now through Jan 5th.  Please contact our AIG Specialist, Merilee Chesney, for more information or a referral form.  If you currently have a child identified as AIG,  you do not need to take any action.

    Please remember that on Friday, December 15th, school is a half day.  All kids dismiss at 11:30.  December 15th will be the last day of school for the Holiday break. Our school will re-open for students on January 2.  We hope everyone enjoys spending time with family and friends over the holidays.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Larry Savage

    Principal, SCE

    Siler City Elementary School Families,

    Our PTA meeting and Holiday Performance will be held on December 12th in the multi-purpose room from 6:00 to 7:00.  Come out and hear important updates from SCE’s PTA as well as watch our kids share in the holiday spirit.

    We want to let you know that SCE has been selected as Chatham County Schools’ Piedmont Triad Education Consortium’s (PTEC) ‘signature school’ for our excellent 2016/17 test results.  District and SCE staff will be attending a ceremony at the University of Greensboro this Friday to receive the award.  While we are honored and excited, please know that we are pushing even harder to have a more successful 2017/18.  As our partners in the education of our children, please push equally hard at home.  

    We want to let you know that starting next week we are going to be setting up automatic phone calls to go home to parents should your child be absent from school.  We believe this is an important way for us to be sure our kids are accounted for and safe at all times.  Remember, regular school attendance is one of the greatest predictors of student success.  Overall, SCE’s attendance rate is excellent--above the District and State average at 96%.  Please help us continue this trend by getting your child here each day on time and ready to learn.

    Referrals for evaluation for AIG are being accepted now through Jan 5th.  Please contact our AIG Specialist, Merilee Chesney, for more information or a referral form.  If you currently have a child in AIG, you do not need to take any action.

    Sincerely,

  • Siler City Elementary School Families,

    We will be having a running club parent meeting on Wednesday, November 29, starting at 4:00 in the multipurpose room.  At 4:30, there will be a meeting for parents of students involved in the Marathon Kids program which includes students in Ms. Mitchell, Ms. Ford, and Mr. Valladares’ classes, and the running club kids who are in our afterschool tutoring program.  Come out and learn more about our running programs.  Running is an excellent way to stay healthy both mentally and physically.

    Please remember that students cannot be dropped off in the morning earlier than 7:30.  The last couple of weeks, we have noticed several kids being let out at carpool between 7:25 and 7:30.  This is a safety issue as those students will be unsupervised.  Please make sure you do not drop kids off in carpool until adults are outside and ready to supervise your children.

    Some SCE teachers and staff will be participating in the Reindeer Run 5K in Pittsboro on December 9th.  We’re inviting parents to come out and run for Team SCE Bulldogs or cheer on our staff and other participants.  It will be a morning of fun.  You can register for the race here:  http://chathamkids.org/events/reindeer-run/

    We hope you all had the chance to enjoy family and friends over the Thanksgiving Break.  We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Larry Savage

All other projects will be sent home with students on Wednesday morning.  If you plan to visit the Science Fair on Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday morning, however, you may take your child’s project home early.

    We are trying to keep our Facebook page up to date with posts about ‘happenings’ at our school and fun pictures of students and teachers around our school. Please ‘like’ our school Facebook page so you have the opportunity to see our posts.  Our Facebook page is ‘Siler City Elementary School.’  We have a goal of 900 people reached each month and we need your help to reach it.  Also, consider reviewing our school on Facebook.  We always appreciate your feedback.

    We have a number of students who owe money in the cafeteria.  Starting this week, we will be sending automatic calls to the parents of those students.  If you receive one of these calls, or if you know your child has an outstanding cafeteria balance, please pay your bill in the cafeteria ASAP.

    Report cards were sent home on November 8th.  Please let us know if you did not receive it.  Also, do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher if you have questions and/or concerns.

    Picture Retake Day is Wednesday morning, November 15th.  If you purchased pictures and were not happy with them, send them back with your child to have them retaken.  If you did not purchase pictures but would now like to, have your child pick up a picture envelope at the front desk and return the envelope filled out.  Just a reminder that this is a pre-paid sale.

    We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Larry Savage

    Today we began piloting a “red-tag” program.  We will be zip-tying a red plastic tag to the book bag or some other personal item that our K through 3rd grade bus riders will carry each day to and from school.  The tag will not have any writing on it so no confidential information will be disclosed.  The tag and zip tie should not damage the student’s personal item and will be replaced by the school if lost or damaged.

     

    We will ask the Pre-K through 3rd grade bus riders to show this tag to their afternoon bus driver each day as they are exiting the bus so the driver can make sure the student(s) are met by an adult or are in the care of an older student.  We are planning to begin using this process on October 31, 2017 at our school. A yellow bus permission form was sent home today, it is very important that you return this completed form.

     

    Thank you for your assistance and support with this program and our efforts to insure the safety of all Chatham County Schools students.  Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about this pilot program aimed at helping to safeguard this group of students.

    Siler City Elementary School Families,

     

    I appreciate everyone’s patience in carpool Monday morning and afternoon.  What a difference a day makes!  Tuesday morning buses and carpool went more smoothly.  Time and service should continue to improve over the coming days.

     

    We continue to have significant issues, however, with parents dropping students off prior to 7:30 a.m. without permission, or with parents parking, walking their child/children in prior to 7:30 a.m. and then leaving the students in the cafeteria.  As a reminder, if you have a job that requires you to drop your child off prior to 7:30, please email Dr. Larry Savage at:  lsavage@chatham.k12.nc.us.  You will need to include in your email a letter from your employer describing your start time as well as a contact number for your employer.  You may also drop off this information at the front office.  

     

    SCE staff report to school at 7:30 each morning.  Our front office interpreter (Itzel Ocelot) arrives at 7:15.  To accommodate parents who have unique work situations, we have also assigned an instructional assistant to supervise students of these parents as well as our ‘first run’ bus students.  We do not have additional staff members who can arrive at 7:00.  Put simply, to ensure our students’ safety, we can only supervise children between 7:00 and 7:30 who have the highest need.

     

    To ensure that all students dropped off early have the proper permission, we are putting a new procedure in place.  Starting Thursday, August 31, we will only allow students and parents to enter the building before 7:30 who have been granted permission to be dropped off early, or ride a ‘first run’ bus.  We will have a staff member at the front door to be sure that this procedure is followed.  At 7:30, we will let students and parents in the building, though parents and students must continue to wait in the front office until 7:35.  At 7:35, students in the front office and the cafeteria will be released to go to classrooms.

     

    We appreciate in advance your following of this new procedure.  To avoid these issues altogether, please remember that our school buses are the safest and most efficient way to get to school.  If you need more information on riding a bus, please call our front office at (919) 663-2032 and we will help you.   If riding a bus is not an option, carpool is the next best option.  Once carpool is running efficiently, you may arrive between 7:30 and 7:45 a.m. and drop your child off with minimal waiting.  Walking your child into our school each morning is least efficient as parking, waiting for parking, backing up from parking, and walking your children through the parking lot slows down cars trying to access carpool and increases the likelihood of accidents between cars, or between cars and students.

     

    Sincerely,

     

    Dr. Larry Savage

    Principal, SCE

     

    Estimadas familias de Siler City Elementary,

    Aprecio la paciencia de todos en la línea de carros del lunes en la mañana y en la tarde. ¡que diferencia hace un día! El martes en la mañana la línea de carros estuvo más calmada. El tiempo y servicio seguirán mejorando en los próximos días.

    Sigue habiendo problemas con los padres que dejan a sus niños antes de las 7:30 a.m. sin permiso, o con los que se estacionan para encaminarlos y dejarlos en la cafetería. Como un recordatorio, si tiene que dejar a su niño/a temprano por el trabajo, por favor mande un correo electrónico al director Dr. Larry Savage: lsavage@chatham.k12.nc.us.  Tendrá que incluir en su mensaje una carta de su empleador con la hora de entrada al igual que el número telefónico de su empleador. También puede dejar esta información en la oficina.

    El personal de SCE se reporta a la escuela a las 7:30 cada mañana. Nuestra intérprete en la oficina (Itzel Ocelot) llega a las 7:15 para ajustarse a los padres que tiene situaciones de trabajo únicas, también asignamos a una asistente de maestra para supervisar a los estudiantes de estos padres al igual que a los estudiantes que viajan en la “primera ronda”. No tenemos mas personal que pueda llegar a las 7:00. En pocas palabras, para asegurar la seguridad de los estudiantes, solo podemos supervisar de 7:00-7:30  a los niños con mayor necesidad.

    Para asegurarnos de que cada estudiante que se deje temprano tenga permiso previo, estamos estableciendo un procedimiento nuevo. Comenzando el jueves 31 de agosto solo permitiremos que los padres y estudiantes con permiso previo de dejar a sus niños temprano o los estudiantes de la “primera ronda” de autobuses entren al edificio antes de las 7:30. Tendremos un personal de la escuela en la puerta para asegurarse que se siga este procedimiento. A las 7:30 permitiremos que los padres y estudiantes entren al edificio, sin embargo, los padres y estudiantes deberán seguir esperando en la oficina hasta las 7:35. A las 7:35 los estudiantes en la oficina y en la cafetería podrán pasar a sus aulas.

    De antemano apreciamos su ayuda al seguir este procedimiento. Para evitar estos problemas, por favor recuerde que la manera más segura y eficiente de viajar a la escuela es a través de nuestros autobuses. Si necesita más información sobre viajar en autobús por favor comuníquese a la oficina al (919) 663-2032 y lo ayudaremos. Si viajar por autobús no es una opción, la siguiente mejor opción es la línea de carros. Una vez la línea de carros vaya de manera eficiente, usted podrá llegar de 7:30-7:45 a.m. y dejar a su niño/a con poca espera. Encaminar a su estudiante a la escuela es la manera menos eficiente de dejar a sus hijos, ya que tiene que estacionarse, esperar a estacionarse, salir del estacionamiento, y encaminar a su estudiante por el estacionamiento hace que la línea de carros se desacelere y aumenta la probabilidad de que pase un accidente entre los carros o entre los carros y los estudiantes.

     

    Sinceramente,

    Dr. Larry Savage

    Director, SCE

    Siler City Elementary School Families,

    We are excited to welcome your kids back Monday.  By all measures, we had an extremely successful 2016/17 school year.  We saw significant student growth in all areas and we hope to be able to share specific data very soon.  More importantly, we’re focused on making 2017/18 even more successful.  To get the school year started off right, we wanted to pass on some important information to ensure a smooth start.

    Please remember that school starts at 7:55 each day and ends at 2:55.  Education research shows how critical school attendance is for your child’s academic success.  Please do your part in making sure your child is at school each day on time and ready to learn.

    Remember that you may not drop off kids for school earlier than 7:35 a.m.  After 7:35 a.m., you may either park and walk your child into school, or use the designated drop-off location for carpool.  If you have a job that requires you to drop your child off prior to 7:35, please email Dr. Larry Savage at:  lsavage@chatham.k12.nc.us.  You will need to include in your email a letter from your employer describing your start time.  You may also drop off this information at the front office.

    All carpool parents should have carpool numbers.  If you need a number, please let us know in the front office and we will get one to you.  Also, if you need a duplicate number for multiple cars, we can do that too.  We have a process in place whereby you can pick up your child in carpool without cartags the first week.

    Please do not forget project ‘make Dr. Savage sleep on the roof.’  Have your children bring in their reading logs on the first day of school.  If your child has lost their log, they can get a new log from their teacher and turn them in on the first week.

    We will have a number of staff members in the parking lot the first couple of weeks of school to help direct traffic and keep cars moving.  As always, the safety of our students is most important to us.  We appreciate your patience in advance as delays in both carpool and buses are typical the first couple of weeks.  

    We look forward to seeing you all Monday.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Larry Savage

    Principal, SCE

    Siler City Elementary School Families,

    Our PTA meeting and Holiday Performance will be held on December 12th in the multi-purpose room from 6:00 to 7:00.  Come out and hear important updates from SCE’s PTA as well as watch our kids share in the holiday spirit.

    We want to let you know that SCE has been selected as Chatham County Schools’ Piedmont Triad Education Consortium’s (PTEC) ‘signature school’ for our excellent 2016/17 test results.  District and SCE staff will be attending a ceremony at the University of Greensboro this Friday to receive the award.  While we are honored and excited, please know that we are pushing even harder to have a more successful 2017/18.  As our partners in the education of our children, please push equally hard at home.  

    We want to let you know that starting next week we are going to be setting up automatic phone calls to go home to parents should your child be absent from school.  We believe this is an important way for us to be sure our kids are accounted for and safe at all times.  Remember, regular school attendance is one of the greatest predictors of student success.  Overall, SCE’s attendance rate is excellent--above the District and State average at 96%.  Please help us continue this trend by getting your child here each day on time and ready to learn.

    Referrals for evaluation for AIG are being accepted now through Jan 5th.  Please contact our AIG Specialist, Merilee Chesney, for more information or a referral form.  If you currently have a child in AIG, you do not need to take any action.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Larry Savage

    Principal, SCE
