Shiloh heads back to the movies!
Shiloh hosted MASH 8 on Friday, March 13, 2015. This was the 8th time that the school has opened its doors to the school community for families to come enjoy a movie and have fun at the same time. Mr. Spencer and Mrs. Aldredge were joined by several Shiloh staff members at the event, some of whom brought their own children. Mr. Spencer opened the evening by reminding the parents that Shiloh earned letter grades of A in Math and B in Reading from the state based upon the 2014 EOG scores. Noting that the school’s overall grade was a B, Mr. Spencer informed the crowd that while the school is proud of their accomplishments, they also look for ways to improve. With an increased school-wide emphasis on reading, he stated that there are helpful links on our website showing the importance of reading at home. There were also some helpful reading tips for parents that were available at MASH for them to take home.
Shiloh’s PTA President Mrs. Guicheteau then addressed the crowd. She mentioned two reading programs that the PTA recently approved to purchase for the school. Additionally, please mark your calendars for PTA’s first-ever yard sale in the gym on Saturday, May 2. Information on the sale was recently sent home with students.
The fun then began when The Lego Movie started. How was the movie chosen? The Shiloh students voted for the movie they wanted to see at MASH, and The Lego Movie was by far the winner! The school estimates that about 260 people attended this movie night. Parents and students settled into their comfortable spots around the gym and enjoyed a Friday evening at school. Pierce Klutz, son of Media Coordinator Mrs. Jessica Klutz said, "It was the awesomest! I love MASH movie night!" His brother Parker Klutz added, "I get to go to my favorite school and watch my favorite movie? That is so cool!" Shiloh’s Guidance Counselor Mrs. Monica McGinniss made the following statements about MASH night: “I loved being able to enjoy the invention convention and the movie on the same night. The kids loved wearing their pajamas to school.” Addison Aldredge said, "I liked that I got to sit with my friends to watch the movie."
Thanks to nearby Sun Valley 14/Stone Theaters, Shiloh was able to raffle off two free movie tickets at the end of the night! Mr. Spencer promised the crowd that MASH 9 will be coming next Fall-stay tuned!
