Siler City Elementary School Families,
Test results are in, and once again SCE had a fantastic academic year in 2017/18! For the second year in a row our school exceeded expected growth meaning that our students’ change in achievement last year was high when compared to other North Carolina schools. Our performance composite score, which is based on our EOG testing results and growth, has grown by 17 points since 2015/2016. Our school earned a C in reading, a B in math, and a C overall. We are pushing to earn a ‘B’ score overall as a school in 2018/19 (we were only 3 points away last year) and we need your help keeping our kids focused on school and learning. The learning our kids do at home matters greatly. As a school community, we can reach our goals for this school year!
We are in the process of selecting a new school logo to represent our school into the future and we need your feedback (don’t worry, we are remaining ‘Bulldogs’). Please click the link in the email accompanying this message to give input on the SCE logo by September 28th. SCE Logo Survey
We will be holding our 2nd grade Parent Night on Monday, September 17th from 5:00 to 6:00. 5th grade parent night will be held on Wednesday, September 19th from 5:00 to 6:00. 3rd grade Parent Night will be held on Thursday, September 20th from 5:00 to 6:30. Please come out and learn about your child’s class and how you can support your child directly from your child’s teachers.
We hope you all have been safe, warm, dry, and with electricity throughout Hurricane Florence. We hope your extended families are well as well. We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow morning.
