Siler City Elementary School Families,
We had our best science fair ever based on reports from our student judges. I want to thank our students who participated for their hard work, and all caregivers and SCE staff for helping our kids be prepared. As hard as the decision was, we had to select classrooms and individuals who will move on to compete at the district competition. Our winners are:
Kindergarten: Ms. Adelman’s Class
1st Grade: Ms. Arends’ Class
2nd Grade: Ms. Southward’s Class
3rd Grade: Reagan Sandel and Madelyn Smith; Keylor Urena; Ennis Aguilar
4th Grade: Marlon Cano; Torris Price; Jonathan Figueroa & Emmanuel Herrera
5th Grade: Pablo Sanchez Castro & Liz Marie Castro; Ashley Velasco Perea & Meredith de Jesus Lopez
As a reminder, we need all kids at school on time and ready to learn each day. Please remember that if your child is not heading to class at 7:55, they are considered tardy. Conversely, if you check your child out early, that is also considered a tardy. We understand that things happen, but strive to have your kids here on time each day.
We have lots of coats in the lost and found box. Please make sure to write your child’s name inside of their coat.
If you have a child staying after school for our Y-Learning program, YMCA has asked me to let you know that there will be no tutoring this Monday, November 19th. Please plan on your kids coming home on Monday as they normally would. Please let us know if we need to do anything different from a transportation perspective.
The PTA has a few spirit wear shirts left for sale. We have youth and adult sizes and all shirts are short sleeved. Please call the office or send a note with your child if you are interested in purchasing a shirt. All shirts are $12.00.
There will be no school on November 21, 22, and 23 for the Thanksgiving Holiday. We hope you all have the opportunity to spend valuable time with friends and family. It’s always a good time to read a book with your kids too!
Dr. Larry Savage
