Following dinner, we will settle into Camp Siloam for the evening.

For those staying in the bunkhouse, please make sure to bring the following items in addition to clothing and uniforms/shoes: bedding (pillow, sheet, and blanket/sleeping bag), toiletries, and towels.
Report Cards & Profiles -- Fr 10/27
Our first report cards are scheduled to go home on Friday along with student profiles. For new families, student profiles are a written document that summarizes what your students are learning and how they are doing academically, socially, and in their character.
We encourage you to look over these as tools to help you in parenting and in partnering with the school. Any questions about the Lower Level report cards or profiles can be directed to your student's homeroom teacher; Upper-Level questions can be directed to Ms. Shelton or the specific subject teacher.
Oratory Program -- 11/2 @ 6pm
Our Oratory Program is happening on Thursday, November 2. This is a great night as our upper-level students perform speeches, poems, readings, and scriptures from historical events, the literature they are studying, and much more.
Students will receive their reading parts on Monday along with some tips for how to learn and practice. We are looking forward to hearing our students perform. Ask them to recite their reading for you at home too!
BUS DRIVERS NEEDED
We are in need of bus drivers for away games and events. We need several volunteers and we can help you get set up to do so. Email email@example.com if you are willing.
We need someone to mow and weed-eat on campus, especially behind the main school building.
