Dear Families,

Welcome back to Slingerlands!!  We made it through our first full week of school!!  The kids did a fabulous job!!!

It was great to see everyone last night at our Open House!!  You are an important part of our school community and we appreciate all your support!

Just a reminder that our Community Food Drive will continue until September 27th.  For more information click here.

Slingerlands Elementary is participating in the Global Read Aloud this year. This world-wide reading project will take the place of One School, One Book for the 2019-2020 school year. All classroom teachers are participating and you have the opportunity to participate at home, too! For more information, click here.  If you decide to participate, you can choose ONE book.  The PTO will be purchasing the books for you. The deadline for signing up is September 16th.  Books will be ordered on September 17th.

This year we will have our Elementary Activities Fair.  It is a great opportunity to find out about the various activities in the Town of Bethlehem that are appropriate for elementary aged children.  It is also a great opportunity to advertise an activity that you are involved in such as Boy Scouts or Ballet.
