To ensure that our learning environment is equitable and focused on instruction, we are a uniform school. All students are required to be in uniform Monday - Friday. Our uniforms consist of khaki or navy blue bottoms (shorts, pants, skirts) and white, orange, or blue polo shirts. All students should be in uniform Monday-Friday If you are facing a challenge in purchasing uniforms for your child(ren), feel free to reach out to our parent liaison, Ms. Woods, for assistance.

Early Release Day

As a reminder, every Friday our school day ends at 1:00 p.m. in order for our teachers to receive training and workshops to ensure your child(ren) have a top-notch educational experience here at Slater. All students must be picked up no later than 1:00 p.m.

Research indicates that missing more than five days of school each year, regardless of the cause, begins to impact student academic performance and starts shaping attitudes about school.

At Slater Elementary, we recognize the relationship between daily school attendance, school climate, student performance, and social-emotional health. We also know that the amount of time actually spent in class is a good measure of student access to an education. Each tardy or absence means a student has lost an opportunity to learn.

At T.H. Slater Elementary, we strive to proactively monitor school wide attendance and the individual attendance of each student. The following policy will be upheld for students who are tardy or repeatedly picked up late:

Get Ready for Slater 's Project Based Learning Instruction!!!!

Project Based Learning is....

an engaging strategy for teaching that allows students work on a project over an extended period of time that engages them in solving a real-world problem or answering a complex question. Students demonstrate their understanding by developing a public product or presentation for a real audience.


As a result, students develop an intense learning as well as critical thinking, creativity, and communication skills by doing an authentic, meaningful project. Project Based Learning unleashes a contagious, creative energy among students and teachers.


The fun starts the week of August 19th in grades Pre-K thru 5!!!!!
