We are currently adjusting our schedule in order to meet the needs of all of the 4th graders. We are conducting a "writing workshop rotation" immediately following lunch. All of the fourth graders will be rotating through each classroom and participating in activities aimed at enhancing their writing skills. We will be having recess from 2:00-2:30 until we take the TAAS writing test on February 20.
Your Market Day Orders make a difference every month! A percentage of the sales go directly to the Slaughter PTO and then directly to your child in the form of new books for the Literacy Library or software for computers. If you have not ordered from Market Day before, give it a try! It will benefit your family with good food and benefit your child with money for educational tools.
Don't forget to save your Campbell Soup labels and send them to school with your child. These labels help our school to purchase new computers and software.
