Thank You Everything, Mr. Steve!

The Wildcat Family lost a loved one last week with the passing of Mr. Steve Sullivan.


Not only did Mr. Steve help keep things rolling around here, he took great care of our people (students, staff, and visitors) as well. He was the head of our Custodial/Maintenance Crew and worked at Slater for the past 20 years. We are thankful for his time, dedication, and the impact that he made.


Please keep his home and school families in your thoughts.

All Sports Meeting

Any student in 6-8th grade that plans on participating in any sport (football, cheer, basketball, track), is required to attend an informational meeting on Monday, August 8 at 6:00 pm. Location TBA.


The Activity Handbook will be reviewed and coaches will have information in regards to each sport.


The first day for JH fall sports practice is Monday, August 15. All athletes are required to have a physical on file in the Elementary Office prior to being allowed to practice. Athletes must have 14 practices before they can play in a game.

It's Registration Time!

School Registration will take place on Wednesday, August 10 from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm in the School Library.


Please bring the following:

  • Proof of Residency (tax receipt, utility bill, etc.)
  • Updated Shot Records (Eight grade students will need the Tdap and MCV4 immunizations, per State law.)
  • Student Insurance Information (if different since last year)-- students participating in any sport will need this information prior to participating.


If you'd rather complete the registration forms beforehand, you can print and fill out the enrollment forms below. When you finish the forms, you can email them to me (bdrummond@slaterschools.net) or Tera (tallen@slaterschools.net), or you can bring them with you to registration. We'll still need to receive a copy of your proof of residency and updated medical/insurance info (if applicable).
