In the Elementary Art Club, students are given the opportunity to explore their creative ideas and talents through projects that are an extension of the elementary arts curriculum. The art club participants will hone their artistic skill sets, collaborate with other artists like themselves, and learn how to work together through group projects that will beautify the school and community. Students participating in Shiloh Art Club may also have the opportunity to work more independently on a given project, allowing more time for the creative juices to flow and individuality to blossom! Art club is proudly facilitated by the Shiloh Elementary art teacher and artist Mrs. Jamieson.
Girls on the Run
Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity-based positive youth development program for girls and teaches life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness. Girls on the Run is sponsored by Coach Reynolds.
Shiloh Morning News, a student-operated TV broadcast program, provides an opportunity for students to try their hand in the broadcast booth while providing important information and announcements to our students and teachers each day. Morning News is sponsored by Ms.Bishop.
The Robotics Club is an interesting way to engage students in STEM (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics) Education. The club offers students the opportunity to explore the basics of coding, computer science, and computational thinking through the hands-on experience of building robots. Students will have to understand how to research a problem, identify procedural steps, and work with others to find a solution. Finally, robotics is a way to engage in real-world problem solving and experience that they can apply to other areas in life. The Robotics club is sponsored by Mrs.Allen-Hartley.
Safety Patrol consists of 5th-grade students. The goal of the Safety Patrol is to improve safety during morning arrival and afternoon dismissal. Patrols are stationed around the school to help remind students of the "Shiloh Way". Members were selected for their courtesy, dependability, interest in helping others, and respect for others. Safety Patrol is sponsored by Ms.Taylor.
Each year, we put on a big spring musical. Students will audition probably in late fall and rehearse all spring to put on this 75 minute Broadway Jr. show. Rehearsals involve practicing songs, learning extensive choreography, blocking scenes and sometimes even painting sets. Being part of the musical requires a big commitment on the part of both the students and families. Typically, around 25-30 students are selected based on behavior and talent. The audition is comprised of a memorized dialogue and song and possibly some movement. Information will be sent home with interested students and posted in eClass when audition time comes. Though we've done over 15 shows now, examples of past shows include Disney's Lion King Jr., Shrek the Musical, The Sound of Music, Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka Jr., and most recently, Disney's Beauty & the Beast Jr. The spring musical is sponsored by Ms. Ginn.
