Siler City Elementary School Families,
As a reminder, on June 10th select 4th and 5th grade students who did not successfully pass the End of Grade Reading test on their first attempt will have an opportunity to try again. On June 11th, select 5th grade students who did not successfully pass the End of Grade Science test on their first attempt will have an opportunity to try again. If you have agreed to let your child participate in the re-administration, please have them at their bus stops at the correct time.
Greetings Parents! Do you have a child who will be starting kindergarten this year? If so, have you heard about the Get On Track Kindergarten Readiness Camp? The dates are from July 29 through August 15, Mondays through Thursdays from 8:00-12:30. Paper registrations can be found at all schools, or you can go to the Chatham County Schools’ website and register online under Summer Learning Opportunities.
You should have received a paper with the dates of our summer PTA work nights. We still are in need of workers. Please consider volunteering. Your child can also work if they are 10 years of age or older. Call the front office if you are willing to help. This is our biggest fundraisers for our PTA. Thank you for your help.
We have been so impressed with how hard your kids have worked in 2018/19 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 (Dr. Savage will be kissing a pig next September if students read over the summer and complete their reading logs). Always remember, you are your children’s greatest teachers!
Have a wonderful summer!
Dr. Larry Savage
Our SCE 5th grade ‘Moving Up’ ceremony will be held on June 5 from 6:00 to 7:00 in the Jordan Matthews HS auditorium. The ceremony will be followed by a reception in the JM cafeteria with light snacks. We look forward to seeing you there.

Is your child struggling with learning their multiplication facts? Well, we are here to help!
Siler City Elementary is implementing a program called “Multiplication Masters” for students in grades 3-5. This is an incentive program which will encourage and reward students who demonstrate mastery for the 2 through the 9 multiplication tables. Students will receive small rewards for each level mastered, and students who achieve mastery of all facts will have their name and picture posted on the wall between the cafeteria and Art classrooms. These Multiplication Masters will also participate in a celebration at the end of the program! All participants will receive a certificate for mastery or participation. The program runs from March 4-April 12. A letter was sent home earlier by students explaining the program. Parents are asked to help their child practice these facts daily with flash cards, practice problems, games, etc. For those with internet access, a Symbaloo is available on the school website under the Student tab. Look for “Multiplication Masters.” This resource has several math websites that can be accessed for additional practice. We are excited about the program and hope to recognize many Multiplication Masters! Thank you for your help!
