Cartoon Science

Lawrence High School students from Mrs. Laird's STEM academy class came to visit Slackwood on Thursday to present Cartoon Science to our 3rd graders. Students were exposed to a variety of science activities based on different cartoons. Mrs. Laird's students did a great job of presenting and Slackwood students got to make oobleck and paper airplanes, and see various scientific demonstrations using the scientific method.

Kindergarten Orientation Goes Off Without A Hitch

Thirty two out of the almost 50 students who have registered, showed up to find out more about the school they will be attending next year. The new children were filled with curiosity, excitement and some apprehension as the Kindergarten teachers took them to do activities in the classroom. Mr. Billy, Mrs. Seaman and Mrs. Wilson did a short presentation for the parents and answered questions. It was great beginning for our new students and their parents. Please tell anyone who has not yet registered to call the board of education office at 671-5500 or apply for kindergarten online at

Mrs. Damon had the students prepare several numbers to play for the students at our school. It was amazing to see the student growth in this area.
