MASH 2- A Big Success at Shiloh!
Our second MASH (“Movies at Shiloh”) night on Friday, March 23rd was certainly a success. We had at least 300 Shiloh students and families come to Shiloh at 6:30 PM to watch Cars 2! Thanks to the help of several staff members as well as members of our PTO Board, we were able to pull off this event without a hitch. We also want to recognize our fine custodial staff for their great job that night. Students were able to relax with their families and eat pizza and popcorn during the movie. Our students were even treated to a special appearance by Blaze, our school mascot, during the movie! Shiloh 3rd grade teacher Mrs. Jennifer Aldredge had the following to say about the evening: “The kids were excited to be a part of the school environment outside of school hours. The food and atmosphere were great!”
Mr. Spencer addressed the crowd before the film started to state that he and Ms. Knight believed in opening up the school for these types of community events. The spirit behind our MASH nights is to continue to maintain strong bonds between the school and the home/community. The background for the movie also tied in with our school’s global awareness program, as parents and students were informed that the movie did not take place in our country. We hope to continue with more MASH nights in the future. We certainly thank all parents for taking the time to accompany their children to this movie night. If you could not make this one, we look forward to seeing you at the next one.
