Robotics Competition Features Winning Slater Scholars and Teachers

On Saturday, December 14, 2019 our Slater scholars presented projects and robots in a major local competition. This competition allowed our scholars to compete with the best and the brightest students in the city. Among some of the other schools that presented was Thomasville Heights Elementary, Drew Elementary , and Miles Elementary School to name a few.

While we do not know the official results of the competition, the judges were openly impressed the hard work that our scholars put forth. It goes without saying that the Slater scholars' success was largely impacted by teachers Mrs. Bethany Thomas, and Mrs. Markii Jacobs. Slater was well represented in this weekend's competition!

We are so proud of our innovative teachers and our amazing future leaders.

Loew's Partnership Features Slater Artists!!

The LOEW'S Hotel is a generous partner to Slater Elementary School. As a result of this partnership we look forward to greetings from Loew's personnel on the first day of school, an annual coat drive, and an annual holiday card competition. Loew's also completely funded our robotics room and robotics team materials.

The picture above shows the 2nd graders that were selected to participate in this years Holiday card competition. Our very own art teacher, Mr. Cox selected the top artists in second grade. The students that participated in this competition toured the luxury hotel, met the Loew's chef and cook staff, and were treated to homemade cookies and chocolate milk as they created their holiday masterpieces.

Of course our scholars made amazing artwork making us so proud , but what they could not know was that the top two cards that were judged and selected would win either a dinner for the entire family at the Saltwood Restaurant in the Loew's hotel, or an overnight stay for the artist and their family. While we will announce the winners this week, we already know that each of our scholars entered the competition as winners.

With one more week before the 2019 Winter Holidays, the Slater Faculty and Staff makes plans for bringing the semester and the year to a close successfully. The faculty is pictured here celebrating the past week's successes and planning for the busy upcoming week!

Our Dean of Students, Mr. Moultrie, and Dean of Academics, Mrs. Amos shared the events that will take place this week and the things that need to happen for each of us to be prepared. Many teachers will probably spend this weekend making sure that they have everything they need to insure that everything is just right for our scholars and parents!
