  • The proposed E-SPLOST could bring in $927.6 million in revenue for GCPS projects.
  • If renewed by voters, the E-SPLOST would run July 1, 2017, to June 30, 2022.
  • More information about the E-SPLOST is available online.

    Parent Observation Day

    We Have a Winner

    It's time to recognize one of our own as Parent of the Month. The winner is no other than Ms. Melania Anderson mother of Eliana Anderson (7th) and Sarah Anderson (8th). Ms. Anderson is a very active parent and can be seen volunteering throughout the year at Shiloh Middle events. Ms. Anderson most recently served on our Teacher of the Year Selection Committee and helped select the three finalist. Always eager to jump in where help is needed and promote the Shiloh way, it is with pleasure that we congratulate our September Parent of the Month--Ms. Melania Anderson. Well done ma'am, well done!
