Parent Message 5/13/2019

 

Siler City Elementary School Families,

I want to remind parents of our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students that End of Grade testing will occur as follows:

  • The Reading EOG for 3-5 graders will take place on Friday, May 24th

  • The Math EOG for 3-5 graders will take place on Wednesday, May 29th

  • The 5th grade Science EOG will be on Friday, May 31st  

Also, on June 10th, 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, 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.

It is critical that you make every effort for students to be at school on time each of these days rested and ready to work hard.  Please avoid making appointments for your children on these critical dates. Even though school is out on June 7th, please also do not make vacation plans or other appointments until after June 11th to give students who were not successful on their first try the opportunity to pass on the second attempt.  Thank you, and let us know if you have any questions.

Our Spring Picture sale has ended, please return any unpurchased pictures to your child’s teacher.  If you still plan to purchase pictures, please do so as soon as possible.

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.

If you are the parent of a rising kindergartener here at SCE, we will be holding a kindergarten preparation meeting and a dual language interest meeting for you on May 14th from 5:30 to 6:30 in our media center.  Please come out and learn more about preparing your kids for kindergarten and the advantages of bilingualism that accompany students throughout their academic career and life. We look forward to seeing you here.

Chatham Middle School will be holding an informational meeting on at SCE on May 15th from 6:00 to 7:00 in our media center for our current 5th grade students related to how to become a middle school band student.  Please attend if you are interested.

 Thanks, and hope you all had a fantastic weekend.

Dr. Larry Savage

Principal, SCE
