Grade Recovery Opportunities

Shiloh Parents/Guardians! Your student was given the opportunity to recover any missing work or undesirable grades in any content area during Thanksgiving Break. Recovery opportunities were posted on each teacher's eClass page in the Announcement Section. Progress Reports go home today. Please review the report and check the portal updated grades. If your scholar has any grades below 70, they will need to bring that grade up to a 70 or better before the end of the semester, Friday, December 17th. It is very important to remember that students must pass five out of six classes with two of the classes being Math and Language Arts.

Planning Ahead for Final Exams

Please ensure your scholar is present and on time for their final exams this week, December 13-17 (Monday - Friday).

From the Principal’s Desk

Good evening Generals:


Final examinations will continue this week. This Friday, December 17, 2021, is the last day for the First Semester. Please sit with your child(ren) to discuss the best ways they can achieve and pass all their classes (70% or higher). Engage in playful study games to test their knowledge of the content. Have them use flashcards to review standards. You may also have them come in for tutoring and review notes from their teachers’ eCLASS pages.


Join us for our exciting Shiloh Middle School Orchestra (12/13/2021), Chorus (12/15/2021) and Band (12/16/2021) Concerts this week at Shiloh High School. All concerts will begin at 6:00 PM. Please also join us at our upcoming Basketball Games this week. Stay informed by viewing the various Shiloh Middle School activities and events on our calendar (Calendar Link).


As we move into the season of giving, let us remind our students to pay it forward. Ali Ibn Abi Talib A.S. stated, “The best deed of a great man is to forgive and forget.” Remind your child(ren) that to live is to learn and the greatest part of living is finding the love to forgive.


Thank you for your continued support of Shiloh MS.
