A Word of Thanks From the Parent Center (Charlene Fletcher)
Thank You: Volunteers Make It Happen!
There are not enough words to express my deepest appreciation and gratitude to our parents, guardians, grandparents, siblings, and community members who gave their time, talent and resources to make this year a success! We must continue our momentum and I employ you to take a look at our current volunteer campaign listed below and sign up today. We can be a premier school by having our premier volunteers present, when and where they are needed. I need you like any vital resource--it is more beneficial to have too much rather than not enough. Together, we can make every vision and goal a reality!

Rising 7th Grade Immunization Requirements
Greetings Shiloh Rising 7th Grade Families:
Please read the attached letters for more information about the immunization requirements for all scholars entering 7th Grade. They will be required to have one dose of Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis booster) and one dose of MCV4 (meningococcal conjugate vaccine). Although your scholar’s current certificate may not have an expiration date or may be marked complete for school, the law requires that a current certificate be submitted verifying that the student has received both of these vaccines before they enter 7th Grade.
