Winter Concert – Monday, January 27th, 7pm – Slingerlands 

Just a reminder that both concerts this year are here at Slingerlands (not the High School).  Remember, parking can be tricky so please plan ahead. DO NOT park on Union Street.

Slingerlands 5th Grade Musical

Our school musical is a very important tradition. This year we will be celebrating the 50th year of the musical!  In honor of this important event, we are purchasing a new piano for the school. More information on how to make a donation to ‘purchase a key’ can be found here.

Applebee’s  Fundraiser

Applebee’s Flapjack Fundraiser is on Saturday, January 25th from 8 am – 10 am. Help support the 5th grade by bringing your family out for a fun breakfast with friends, and proceeds will help fund Nature’s Classroom! More details coming next week!  Tickets can be purchased at the door.
