Parent Message 2/16/2020
Siler City Elementary School Families,
I am very proud of how our staff and students responded while our area was under a Tornado Warning last week. Please know that if we are in a Tornado Warning our students and staff seek shelter and follow established safety procedures. If our school is in a Tornado Warning we will not allow parents to check students out of school because we will all be seeking shelter. Please contact me, Principal Poston, if you have any questions about this.
We are excited about the upcoming trip to the Hurricanes stadium. The last day to return permission slips will be Tuesday, February 18th. Because this is such a large trip, we will not be able to make multiple last-minute calls home for permission slips or take verbal permission over the phone. Any students that do not have permission slips filled out will not be able to attend the trip.
We have one more Thrift shop worknight this month on Friday, February 21st. Please consider volunteering at the Chatham PTA Thrift Shop to support our school. Call Siler City Elementary's front office to sign up. Thank you for your support.
We will also have our monthly PTA meeting featuring a fashion show with our kindergarten students on Tuesday, February 25th at 6:00
I want to extend an invitation to a districtwide event that we’re calling Family Fest. It’s February 25th from 5:00 to 7:45 in the evening at Jordan-Matthews High School. It’ll be a time for you to learn more about not only our school-based resources but also what’s available in the community for families. You’ll be able to drop in on the sessions that address your particular needs. Let me draw special attention to the asthma clinic that will be set up by the Chatham County Public Health Department. Bring your child’s asthma inhaler and spacer for tips on proper usage. Representatives from the health department will also provide information about asthma triggers and medication. The YMCA will have activities for children ages 5 to 17, which includes a virtual-reality truck. Dinner will be provided starting at 5:00 PM in the cafeteria. And you don’t want to miss the drawings for opportunities to win free wifi access for a year or an Apple iPad or all sorts of gifts cards. There is no charge for any of this. We just ask that you let us know you’re attending by calling our front office at the school. Our phone number is 919-663.2032. Looking forward to seeing you at Jordan-Matthews on Feb. 25th from 5:00 to 7:45 at Family Fest.
The Chatham Community Library will be celebrating Black History Month every Saturday in February. Go out and learn from various speakers about the contributions that African Americans have made to North Carolina.
Thanks, and hope you all had a fantastic weekend,
Enjoy these activities with your child!
