Shaylun Christenberry's "Cubes in Space" experiment launched successfully on a NASA Balloon from New Mexico on August 25! She sent up pumpkin seeds in her cube with window tint on the inside. In the spring she will plant her pumpkin seeds, along with seeds that stayed on Earth, to see if the window tint helped to block harmful rays they would have been exposed to in near space. She will be comparing the two seeds to see if there is any difference in growth. Here is the link to the Balloon launch video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCldq_VNUIk

Today, after morning announcements, all Shiloh students and staff gathered around the flagpole for a ceremony in remembrance of September 11. We asked students and staff to wear red, white, and blue to commemorate the day. Superintendent, Dr. Allen Hall, talked to students about the events of September 11, 2001. He conveyed what happened that day, talked about the heroism of people during the tragedy, and the sacrifice of our armed forces in the decades that followed. The ceremony ended with the school saying the Pledge of Allegiance. We hope the ceremony, as well as conversations it started, helped our students, none of whom were born at the time, learn a little more about this day in history as well as how the tragedy brought people together.
Picture retake day will be October 28th for any student in Preschool through 12th who was not present yesterday for school pictures. Please contact Randi Pollock with any questions at email@example.com.
Don't forget that picture day is Wednesday, September 8! You can order online at MyLifeTouch.com with Picture Day ID EVTJHFS7X.
