IMPORTANT THOUGHTS FROM

Shiloh Hills Elementary School



Your Concerns

Disparity in affluence affects opportunities

We are definitely a district of haves and have not's. Schools do the best they can with what they have, but the more affluent schools can definitely offer more opportunities.

Evaluating kids off of test scores

I feel that there needs to be more one-on-one evaluating rather than having standardized testing performed on the computer. I don't believe that it is a good representation of the kids' true knowledge. What if the child is having a bad day or isn't feeling the best?

Math

Children should not only be taught Common Core math, but should also learn the traditional way to solve mathematical problems. I do advanced math daily, and if I used the Common Core methods I would be unemployed.

There are a lot of mental health issues for teachers to deal with

I think we need more mental health resources - counselors, social workers, behavior specialists - to support students with high needs. And support teachers in dealing with them in their classroom.

Writing

Children should be learning to read and write in cursive. All of our historical documents are written in cursive.

You Appreciate

Music opportunities for children at Shiloh Hills

Learning opportunities

What I appreciate about the learning opportunities available is the pace at which the students learn, the expertise of those teaching them, and the use of technology, which allows us to remain at the forefront of learning.

Technology

I appreciate the opportunity for my kids to have access to items that may not be available in most homes, such as the Chrome Books. It makes learning easier when they are enjoying it.

Teachers

I appreciate how the teachers at Shiloh Hills are hands on with students and always available to parents.

Caring teachers and other staff members

I appreciate the staff members who work directly with students. They are dedicated and work hard to help students learn and understand content.

Learning Opportunities

Cafeteria food

We need to ensure our children are receiving the best quality food possible. Locally sourced food made from scratch is proven to fuel the mind for learning. The food served at school could easily be the only balanced meal some students receive for the day. Proper nutrition needs to be taught.

An option for students who are not learning-ready

We have students at our school who are not ready to be in school. It is not developmentally, socially, or emotionally appropriate for them, yet they are thrown into a regular classroom and expected to perform up to the same standards as their peers. We need an option for kindergarteners.

Learning opportunities

Some learning opportunities that I would like students to experience are: expressive and fine arts, more STEM focused programs, and giving back to the community through partnerships.

Hands on activities

I would like to see students have more opportunities with hands on activities, brain breaks, cultural exchanges, and art.

Field trips and free afterschool activities

I hear about opportunities at Midway for things like science club, or Lego building, or art experiences. I would LOVE to see those things instituted at Shiloh. Some free activities that maybe happen once a week, that would enhance science, math or social studies learning.
