Siler City Elementary School Families,
We are inviting all SCE families to a celebration of learning on November 2nd at SCE from 5:00 to 7:00. Kids will have the opportunity to play in ‘bouncy houses,’ and soccer and basketball (students vs. staff/parents). We plan to serve pizza, salad, and dessert. The evening will also represent an opportunity to share with you our many successes last year and have the chance to talk together about next steps to take our school to even higher levels. We will need you all to play a part if we are going to meet our next ambitious goal!
The PTA is currently selling SCE spirit wear. We are offering short sleeve shirts, long sleeve shirts and hoodies. This year’s shirt says “There is strength in diversity” and it is in both English and Spanish. Students were given order forms last week. Please let your child’s teacher know if you need another form. All orders and money are due October 15th and you can find a picture of this year’s shirt on our website.
Students in 3rd grade will complete the Cogat test on Monday. Please be sure students are present and on time.
Our Thrift Store work night remaining for October is Tuesday, October 16th. All work nights are from 5:30-7:30. Please volunteer at our work nights to support our PTA and their efforts to improve our playground facilities. Call our school office at 919-633-2032 to sign up to volunteer.
We hope you all are doing well after Hurricane Michael. If you have any needs that our school can meet, please do not hesitate to let us know. I’m sure you will join me in wishing this will be the last hurricane of the 2018 hurricane season.
