Did You Know....???

Each week I am going to try to put something fun or interesting about our school, our staff, or our students in this Did You Know....???? section.

Did you know that each morning when Mrs. Damon does the announcements that students are recognized for their "Golden-Hearted" deeds. These golden hearts are submitted by teachers when students do something especially nice.

Howdy Day at Slackwood

Howdy Day is a day for our students greet each other in a fun and different way. Our golden-hearted students learn to say "Howdy" as they greet other and staff members. Many students and staff wear typical Western wear, including hats.

Deadline for the Free/Reduced Lunch Applications is October 1. Make sure you have it in.

Lost and Found

The school keeps a lost and found across from the library on the hooks. With the changing weather, students often wear light coats and jackets to school. By afternoon, the temperature has risen and they discard their coats. If they leave them outside or in the all purpose room and they are not labeled, they get put in the lost and found. My best advice is to write your child's name in all of the labels of the clothes. Otherwise, it could end up in the lost and found like these items below.

Each year, we take unclaimed clothes and donate them or use them. The Lost and Found is emptied twice a year so if you are looking for something, come check it out.

Questions to ask your child when they come home from school

When you ask your child,"How was your day?", do they give an answer like, "Fine." Here is a great article for parents to help you ask different questions that may spark conversations.
