Hello Sloan Creek Families,


I cannot believe we are about to enter our final week of school. This semester has flown by and I have loved every minute.


Please take special note of the following:

*The last day of school will only have one dismissal time. Even if your child is not eating Chick Fil A, they will dismiss at the same dismissal time as those eating. 


*Parents of rising 6th graders-Please read below in regards to information about EPI School supplies. We will be offering a link to order supplies soon. This link will also be shared with rising 5th grade parents. 


*Awards are next week: 

Monday-Awards in Homeroom classes (no parents in attendance)

Tuesday-Leadership and Be the Difference Awards. (Parents of award recipients have been notified and will be invited to attend awards.)

NASA Presentation.jpg

Thank you, NASA Ambassador, Michelle Wilde for speaking to our students.  It was an amazing presentation. 

Antarctic Program.jpg

Students enjoyed an amazing presentation on the United States Antarctic Program.  Thank you, Mr. Smith for a great presentation.

When a student asks you to wear your Jordan's, you do it! Thanks, Austin!

I had such a great time visiting the Art Show on Monday.  We have some talented students.  Thank you, to Mr. Fruge for putting on a great art show.  


I had to snap a picture of these sixth graders who were so happy to be finished with their STAAR Reading test.  They also had some pretty great dance moves.

May Fun!

We look forward to celebrating all of our Leopard Leaders and Be the Difference award winners during this time. Parents will be invited to attend these awards in person. Please be sure to allow time for check in at the front office. 


End of Year Awards

*Parents will not be in attendance during these awards.

This year, we will not be having grade level, end of year, award assemblies. Instead, students will be given their awards in their homeroom classes. Each homeroom class will be able to celebrate the successes of one another.


During homeroom celebrations, all "A" Honor Roll and All "A/B" Honor roll will be given to students receiving this honor. A snapshot of grades will be taken on May 2nd. This will determine "A" and "A/B" honor roll. Please note that we will not be awarding "A/B average" awards. Other awards, such as club certificates, and Lighthouse Leaders will be given at this time. We hope this is a great time of celebration between students and teachers.


While we love to have our families come to the school to celebrate their students, we would like to reserve our Leopard Leadership Awards as times for our families to attend in person. We also look forward to finding more ways to have families join our building throughout the year.
