MASH- â€œMovies at Shilohâ€
Our first MASH Night was a huge success! On the evening of November 10th, over three hundred students and families came out to enjoy watching Toy Story 3 while supporting Shiloh and enjoying yummy pizza and popcorn together. Principal Scott Spencer and Assistant Principal Rebecca Knight welcomed everyone and reminded all of the families present of the importance of the home and school connection. Taking time out together as a school community to enjoy old friends and to make new ones is an important part of continuing to build our school community. Increasing the strength of our school community will only continue to build up and support the students and teachers of Shiloh.
Shiloh has been a successful school for so long because of all of the ways families and teachers have worked together to support our students. Working together as teachers, staff, parents and students, we showed students the importance of education, hard work, and community. We were also able to recognize the hard working members of our PTO Board and thank them for all they do to support Shiloh. Mr. Spencer introduced our PTO president, Chuck Davis , to those that may not know him. He also recognized the other members of the PTO Board who were in attendance. Our PTO works hard weekly to facilitate fund raisers, plan school community nights, and support the staff and students of Shiloh. Mr. Spencer thanked everyone for their recent support of the PTO Cookie Dough Fundraiser and for making it a success. After the short introductions, families and friends stretched out on blankets and pillows to enjoy the movie together. Watching the movie, returning to get seconds on popcorn and pizza, and chatting with friends were highlights of the evening.
It was a wonderful and relaxing evening before the long weekend. We also want to thank all of the staff members who came out to set up, clean up, and serve food. This again was a picture of what a great staff we have here at Shiloh. Teachers and staff members go way beyond their job descriptions to support students, reach out to families, and serve at Shiloh. We are a better place because of our staff! It was a great night and we look forward to celebrating many more events like this in the future as a Shiloh community.
