Wild about Reading Assembly   



This Thursday, February 6th, our kindergarten, first, second, and third grade students' achievements during January's Wild about Reading Challenge will be celebrated in a grand finale fashion when Sloan PTO brings Dynamic West School Assemblies, Incorporated to visit Sloan. During this safe, hands-on presentation, originally scheduled for January 29th, students will have the opportunity to take an exciting look at live animals from around the world.
