Hello Siler City Elementary Families,
This is just a reminder that our family literacy night will be held this Wednesday June 6th, from 5:30-7:00. This year we are hosting this event with the Chatham County Education Foundation. Please come out to learn more about the importance of reading over the summer and the role you play in reading with your child. Specific strategies and tips will be provided for individual grade spans. Childcare and dinner from Compadres will also be provided. Each student attending will also go home with a free book.

Dear Siler City Elementary School Families,
Summer Reading information will be going home this Thursday with several free books to keep students reading over the summer. In this packet of information look for the bookmobile schedule, a reading log and several helpful tips and websites to keep your students reading. We have fun incentives included, so please keep up with reading logs from the start to the end of the summer. Our kids are really excited, but need your help making sure they follow up with documenting all the reading they are doing.
We only have one week of school left. If you have an unpaid balance in the cafeteria please pay the balance by Friday, June 8.
All school library books need to be returned to the Media Center this week. Please look in backpacks and at home for any school books and return them to Media Center. If books are not returned you will need to pay for missing items.
All Kindergarten pictures and/or money were due by Friday, June 1st. If you missed the deadline, please get us your items ASAP as this is the last week of school.
We still have yearbooks for sale. The price is $18.00. Take advantage of this opportunity to save memories for the year!
Please remember that this Friday, the last day of school, is an early release day. Students will be released at 11:30. Please plan accordingly.
We have been so impressed with how hard your kids have worked in 2017/18 and how much they have learned. We need them ready to take their learning to even higher levels next school year. To the extent possible, please give your child rich experiences this summer. Take them on hikes, visit parks and museums, go on a bike ride, talk to them about their futures, and most importantly, have them read, read, read. Always remember, you are their greatest teachers!
Have a wonderful summer!
Dr. Larry Savage , Principal, SCE
