Slocum Celebrates the Last Day of School

Parents of Slocum Elementary students were welcomed to the school on June 21 in celebration of Fifth-Grade Day. During the event, the students and their families celebrated the soon-to-be-graduates’ final day of school by playing games, signing yearbooks, enjoying snacks and having fun.


Celebrating Flag Day

Students, staff and parents of Slocum Elementary School recently joined first responders to celebrate Flag Day.

For the celebration, students dressed in red, white and blue, recited the Pledge of Allegiance and sang patriotic songs around the school’s flag pole. Retiring teacher Tina Rote was given the honor of raising the American flag, with the assistance of two first responders.

Slocum physical education teacher John Zambriski organized the day’s festivities with the cooperation of staff and parents, inviting first responders living in the community to join the festivities. After the flag-raising ceremony, the guests visited the classrooms to talk to students about their professions and their dedication to the community they serve.
