    Dear Siler City Elementary School Families,

    Kindergarten registration will be open beginning April 9th and run through April 20th. If you have a child or know a child who will be 5 by August 31st, parents are welcome to pick up registration packets at their designated school of attendance.  If you are unsure which school your child is designated to attend, please call 919-545-3626. Families that speak a second language at home, such as Spanish, will need to register with the intake center for additional screening. The intake center will be holding Kindergarten registrations at our school on April 16th and 17th. Please call us at 919-663-2032 or stop by the front office to schedule an appointment.

    Relatedly, we will be hosting a Kindergarten parent night for rising kindergarten students on April 26th at 5 pm.  We will be sharing information on our dual language program, what to expect in kindergarten, and things you can do at home to help get your kindergartner ready for school.  Please help us spread the word about this meeting to any rising Kindergartener parents you may know.

    Please join us for our next PTA meeting starting at 6:00 this Tuesday (April 17th).  Our kindergarteners will be performing "A Year with Frog and Toad, Jr." Come out and hear updates on our PTA’s work on behalf of our school and watch our kindergarteners share the magic of music.

    Siler City Elementary will be having a clean up day again on our campus on April 18th from 3:30-5:00. Please make plans to come out and help us.  Pizza will be served for participants at 5:00.

    Please check your child’s backpack for Spring Picture Proofs that were sent home Friday.  If you would like to purchase pictures, please fill out the envelope with payment enclosed and send it back to school.  You may send a check or correct change only. Thank you for your participation in this school fundraiser.

    Report cards went home on Friday, April 13.  If you don’t receive your child’s report card, or if you have questions/concerns about your child’s grades, please contact his/her teacher.  Also, be sure to talk to your child about his/her progress. It’s critical that your children know you are interested in their education.

    Parents of 5th graders, please mark your calendar for our 5th grade ‘moving up ceremony  to be held at Jordan Matthews HS on June 5th from 6:00 to 7:30. Please come out and join us for an evening of memories and celebrations as students prepare to transition to middle school.
