Back To School Night Was A Success

The Slackwood Back To School Night is a night where you get to meet your children's teachers, see where they spend their days and get an understanding of what your children are doing all day. On Thursday, many of you came and got the first look at your child's new teacher(s) and new classroom. I hope you got the information you needed. Remember, we are always here to help you, if you have questions.

Some Reminders

School Begins at 8:00

  • If you are a walker or car rider please use the back entry way.
  • You can park you car up the lot or drop off. Drop off on the right, park on the left.
  • If you park on the street, you must use the front entrance.
  • If you arrive after 8:00 you must park and walk around the front.

School Ends at 2:40

  • Walker/Car Riders must come to the back door of the AP room and sign out your child.

If you a changing the way your child goes home, please call early and send a note (Both).


  • The Lost and Found is across from the library. I've noticed things beginning to appear
  • If your child has a birthday coming up and you want to do something, it is always best to talk to the teacher beforehand.

The NED Show

On Wednesday, Slackwood students were treated to a visit from NED and his friend Hayley. NED spreads the powerful message of Never Give Up, Encourage Others, Do Your Best through magic and Yo Yo tricks. The students were enthralled as Hayley tells the story of how NED arrived at Slackwood and why these character traits are important. This interactive performance was free for Slackwood students.... All we had to do was try to sell Yo Yo's. There are still Yo Yo's left in Mr. Billy's office. Send in your order form now!
