Shiloh Recycles Then Heads to the Movies!

Blaze along with some students at the Recycled Invention Convention

On Friday, March 14, Shiloh hosted the school community for two different events. The evening kicked off with our annual Recycled Invention Convention (“RIC”) in the Media Center. The event, organized by 4th grade teacher Mrs. Kate Milutin, is an opportunity for students from all grades to be creative while also mindful of the environment. For the RIC, students create their own projects using recycled materials. For example, some projects consisted of plastic bottles, cereal boxes, and one project even had part of a tire! Students took these materials and turned them into items such as instruments, robots, etc. Students from across the grade levels participated in the event. There was even a surprise visit from Blaze during the Convention! Shiloh thanks Mrs. Milutin for her continued work with the RIC. After attending this amazing event, students were then able to head down to the gym for our 6th MASH movie night. The movie selection this time was The Lorax. Since Shiloh recently celebrated Read Across America Week, this movie selection tied in nicely with many of our recent school-wide activities. Our estimates put the number of attendees at MASH 6 at over 250! MASH nights started back in 2011 as a means of opening up the school and allowing students and their families to enjoy a night of fun together. We look forward to MASH 7 in the Fall. What will the movie be? You’ll have to stay tuned!
