Siler City Elementary School Families,
As a reminder, there will be no school from April 15th through April 22nd for Spring Break. School will resume on April 23rd. Please plan accordingly, and make sure your kids do LOTS of reading during spring break. Also take time to do some fun family activities together if at all possible. EOGs are around the corner and to reach our ambitious school goal, we need the kids focused and ready to work hard, learn, and grow when they return to school.
We want to remind you that the CORA food Pantry SNACK! Program provides Chatham County children ages 2 to 18 with free food over the summer. Their services are available for you. Enrollment is limited, so sign up ASAP at one of their registration events, or online at corafoodpantry.org. In addition, CORA will be hosting a registration event at Siler City Elementary School on Tuesday, April 23rd from 4 to 6 p.m.
Thanks, and hope you all had a fantastic weekend and a fantastic Spring Break.
Dr. Larry Savage
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!
