The Middle school and High school included, pencils, blue, black and red pens, loose leaf paper, erasers, glue, a book mark, and school information. The Elementary office, Middle and High school counselors will give this to incoming Sloan-Hendrix students. This is the third year for this project.
The PTE collected cans at the annual Black and Gold games at Sloan-Hendrix on October 13th, 2014. 158 can were donated along with $9. The funds will be used to purchase more canned goods. These 158 cans will be donated to community Christmas basket project. This Christmas Basket project included families with children that attend Sloan-Hendrix.
Sloan-Hendrix PTE donated two carports to the Sloan-Hendrix School. These carports were needed for shade, protection from the elements, a place for the students to eat snacks and an area for outside teaching. One of the carports were placed in the Kindergarten playground area. This area already had tables ready to be placed under the carport. The kids and teachers are ecstatic about the new addition. The second carport was placed in the 1st-4th grade playground area. The students and teachers loved the shade it has provided on warm days.This playground was not equipped with tables, however. At the October 20th meeting, it was approved my the members of the PTE to purchase a table for this playground area. If the table is successful, more tables will be purchased.
