Sligo Swag Store
We heard you that you want MORE Sligo spirit wear and swag options for your Sligo student(s) and the whole family!
With winter holidays around the corner, we have partnered with SpiritHero.com to create a limited time SLIGO POP UP STORE to provide students and families with a wider variety Sligo t-shirts (including long sleeve), hoodies, shorts, pants, baseball caps and backpacks with some new logos and styles. Pretty snazzy stuff! The SLIGO POP UP STORE will be open through December 31st to ensure Sligo families have time to get some Sligo wear in advance of/for the winter holidays. The pop-up store is convenient in that items will be delivered direct to your address.
Be sure to check out what is available and thank you for supporting Sligo Middle School PTSA.
You can check out the store here.
Chromebook Best Practices
Hello families, we need your help to ensure students are ready to learn each and every day. Part of that readiness is ensuring that students bring their charged chromebook to school every day. We have an extremely limited number of loaner computers and are, at times, unable to accomodate the number of students who did not bring a computer. We appreciate your support in ensuring that your student is prepared for school every day.
After School Activities
Sligo MS is proud to host a robust offering of after-school activities, clubs, and athletics this year! Please review the link here to view all of the opportunities for students to get involved. This information is also present on the Sligo MS Website under the “After School Info” tab.
Please note the activity sponsor, dates, times, and location of each club. Some activities (Interscholastic Athletics, intramurals, and certain clubs) require permission slips, which students can ask the sponsors for. Any club requiring a permission slip will inform students at the first meeting. All grade levels are welcome in each activity, with the exception of the Interscholastic Athletics teams, which are for 7th and 8th grade students only. Please reach out to the activity sponsor or coach with any specific questions you may have.
Limited MCPS transportation is provided for activities on Tuesdays-Thursdays. Your bus stop may not be your regular bus stop. Please review the after school buses here. Speak with your students about their method of transportation home and how they will get home from activities safely.
We are looking forward to a great year of after-school activities!
Personal Mobile Device Policy- "Away All Day"
Personal Mobile Devices (PMD) such as cell phones, tablets, wireless headphones, handheld gaming systems, etc. will not be used during the school day. Students should expect to keep devices out of sight upon arrival, or keep their devices at home. PMDs can be used after school or after-school activities. Parents will be asked to pick up devices used during the school day.
Parents and caregivers, we appreciate your support in helping our students stay engaged in learning. If you need to send a message to your child during school hours, please contact the main office at (301) 287-8890. We are happy to relay messages to students during non-instructional times.
