SLC is sponsoring a fundraiser benefiting the Alzheimer's Association. Families are invited to collect old sneakers to bring to the school between now and October 28th. There will be collection bins in the office and on the 2nd floor by the elevators. All of the sneakers will then be shipped to Got Sneakers who recycles them and gives a cash return which will be donated to the Alzheimer's Association. Win-Win-Win!

As we enter the second quarter, 3rd-6th graders should be keeping their first Book Report in sight (due date December 7th). Please refer to the updated Book Report Policy for all the details and visit our website under Parent Resources for a grade level book list as well as an example of the Book Report Format. 1st and 2nd graders will not have an independent book report until 3rd quarter, but the book lists may be helpful in choosing grade appropriate books. Happy reading!!
