A very generous gift was delivered to the school today by Courtney Porter in honor of her mother Gail who passed away in April 2015 from cancer. Gail loved helping families in need during the holiday season. Courtney started a fundraiser, "Gail's Wish" and chose to donate the funds to our school this holiday season to help our families in need. We are so very thankful for this generous donation.

National Special Education Day 2022 National Special Education Day marks the anniversary of the nation's first federal special education law, signed by President Gerald Ford on December 2, 1975. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) made public education available to all children across the nation and ensured special education and related services were provided for children with disabilities. This law was a critical and necessary step on the path to making education and resources equitable for all children – a goal we are still working toward today. This day honors the milestones that have been achieved for special education so far and reminds us of the continued progress to come. To celebrate this important day, take the opportunity to thank the compassionate Shiloh CUSD#1 Special Education Teachers who give of themselves every single day to help our students grow. And if you’re a teacher, continue advocating for your students.
