What is Cougar Challenge?

Cougar Challenge is SLC Home and School’s Biggest Fundraising Event! This event allows our students to raise money for their school without selling merchandise, while promoting a healthy lifestyle and having fun!! 100% of the money collected will go directly to the SLC Home & School.

How Does it work?

Students solicit sponsorship donations from family and friends for the Walk A Thon. The Walk A Thon will have students walk 2 laps around the ETR upper field, during the school day, with fun activities along the way! Students will earn awesome PRIZES for the donations they achieve.

When? Friday October 4th, 2019

Start collecting donations now or you can donate now using Paypal:

Remember when dropping off in the AM, DO NOT park on the side by the porch. That is for approved buses and vehicles that are dropping off students for various situations. AM Kindergarten should NOT be dropping off before 8:30

Kindergarten Car line Pick up

Please remember to arrive for car line pickup as close to 3:30 as possible. If you arrive BEFORE then, you may get caught in first grade car line and this will cause a delay in dismissing the first graders. Thank you for your corporation and to making the SLC car line run smoothly.

Please do not park by ETR before 3:00.

Notes from Nurse DiMaio

Nurse Notes

Welcome to the new school year!

Here are just a few reminders as we get started with new adventures and lots of learning.


All students must have had all their required immunizations by the start of the school year. Any student who is missing any of the required immunizations will be excluded from school until the vaccines are administered.


If your child has a doctor’s order for any medications such as Epi-pens, inhalers, or other prescription meds, I will need a prescription, an allergy action plan or an asthma action plan completed and signed by a doctor.

All Epi-pens must be in by the first week of school.

Extra Clothing

Please keep an extra set of clothes and underwear in your child’s backpack. Some students have spills happen in the lunch room and some students have toileting accidents as they get used to new schedules and unfamiliar restrooms.

Parking at the SLC

We have brand new visitor and 15 min parking spots in our lot. These spots ARE NOT to be used for drop off and/or walker line pickup. Please continue to use the car line for drop off. It is a very crazy time in the parking lot during arrival and dismissal and we do not want ANYTHING to happen to the children. Children must be supervised at all times while they are in the parking lot. The spots are to be used if you need to run something into school, guest reading, cafeteria help, meetings, etc. There are also 4 traveling teachers spots that are ONLY for our teachers that come to the SLC to teach, so please do not use these spots.

Thank you very much!
