Foley's Facts

November 6th, 2015

November is here bringing lots of fall fun to Shiloh Elementary!

Scientist & Engineering Day - November 23rd & 24th - Your child will not want to miss the two days before Thanksgiving!

  • Monday, November 23 will be an exciting day at Shiloh Christian!  I'm asking teachers and students to dress up like a scientist.  This could be a white shirt and goggles or clothing to give a clue as to why the scientist was famous.  Everyone will have a nametag. List of possible scientists-  Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, Johannes Kepler, Galileo, Gutenberg, Jane Goodall, Louis Pasteur, George Washington Carver, Jonas Salk, Archimedes, Bill Nye, Levi Strauss, Henry Ford....Just google scientists and what they were famous for! On this day, our students will discuss the engineering process and practice with a challenge problem from Mrs. Foley!
  • Tuesday, November 24 will be a day of discussing how science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are used in everyday real life.  STUDENTS AND TEACHERS will wear plaid shirts and dress like an engineer!  Again, we will finish the day with a challenge problem from Mrs. Foley! 

November Mission Project - We will be filling shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.  Look for emails from the teacher.

December Mission Project - Lottie Moon Offering.  Pay to dress up.  Look for emails from the teacher for the different dress up days.  Student Council will coordinate and announce these.
