Friday, January 18, is a HALF DAY of school for all elementary students.  School dismisses at 11:35 am.  School sack lunches, instead of a hot lunch, will be available from the kitchen for students.  This lunch will be recorded and charged against the student’s account (unless the student qualifies for the free lunch program).

There is NO SCHOOL on Monday, January 21.  It is a Teacher Professional Development day.

Will you be ready for on-line report card access?

Our first semester ends Friday, January 18th!   Last year, our schools moved to on-line report cards. Using our secure PowerSchool system, you are able to view, save, and print your student’s report cards once they are released. Our next report cards will be available after school on Wednesday, January 23, 2019.  Using this method of delivery allows us to be more efficient with both our time and taxpayer resources.

If you don’t have a PowerSchool account, or if you have forgotten how to access the system, please call Kendra at 721-4446 for instructions and information.  Only parents/guardians are allowed to create accounts to access the private and confidential information contained in PowerSchool.  When you call our office you will be provided with a unique access number and instructions that will allow you to access only your child’s information.  Please call Kendra if you need a printed copy. 

January 23rd is coming soon! Give the system a try soon so that you will be ready to access report card information!

Slade Library will introduce a Makerspace in January 2019! The Makerspace will have activities for students to explore and create, using both electronic resources and hands-on building materials.

Some resources are pricey, so some items will be re-used by many students, like Lego & electronics projects.

Some projects will be make & take, created from donated found objects. Please consider saving and donating some of these items:

* Empty, clean containers like coffee cans, water bottles, prescription bottles (with labels removed), Altoid tins, Clorox wipes containers, egg cartons.

* Toilet paper, paper towel, wrapping paper tubes.

* Fabric remnants, felt scraps, yarn, ribbons, buttons, thread spools or other sewing notions.

* Crafting items like cotton balls, sequins, pipe cleaners, googly eyes.

* Other appreciated items: glue (for a hot glue gun or Elmer’s), tape, brass fasteners, paper clips.

* Please contact Mrs. Boss if there are any other items that you think might be of use at our Destination: Imagination.

Thank you, Janet Boss

Image result for attendance matters logo
Common sense tells us that kids who miss school miss opportunities to learn. Some absences are just unavoidable. But, how much is too much? New research tells us that missing an average of just two days a month makes a child much more likely to fail a subject or to not graduate from high school. This research also points out that parents often underestimate the effects of missing school. It's in everyone's interest that students are at school the vast majority of the time. Thank you for making attendance a priority at Slade Elementary School!
