Mr. Robinson was a good sport this afternoon when he got a pie in the face by 5th grade student, Blake Cowell, who sold an impressive number of pies for the fundraiser this fall. The students, and other members of the staff, truly enjoyed this fun event. Enjoy the winter break!
Due to inclement weather forecasted for tomorrow, School Lane Charter School will be closed Friday, December 23rd. Happy Holidays!
The 4th grade students did a wonderful job at the SLCS Zoo Animal Exhibition this morning! They shared facts about their new species of animal that combined information from their independent research, as well as mathematical information about their habitat, to try to persuade the audience to choose their animal for the open space at the Zoo! The students were very persuasive and excited as they presented their creative projects. Great job everyone!

The 3rd and 4th grade students had a special experience this morning listening to the 5th and 6th grade Concert Band students perform their Winter Concert! It is clear that they have really put in a lot of of effort and practice over the past few years. A big shout out to Mrs. Windle for all her hard work and congratulations to the students for their fantastic performance!
Our kindergarten students had their first ever Exhibition! Students played math games with their families to show off their skills in recognizing, counting, and adding and subtracting numbers. These are some young, powerful mathematicians!
The 5th grade students researched three countries of their choice and analyzed data such as the literacy and poverty rates to compare how human rights are upheld there. They shared their findings today at the 5th Grade Human Rights & Math Exhibition and guests had the opportunities to hear their presentations and vote on the country that they think does the best job upholding human rights. Great work everyone! Check out photos here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/YfHKvC5vCNTejgxD7
We had a wonderful 6th Grade Exhibition this morning where the students presented research about a Spanish-speaking country and a map that they created after learning all about map skills in I&S. They also shared about how they used time management and organizational skills to help them be successful with this project, and sang a song of the Spanish-speaking countries and capitals. Thank you to the parents/guardians who were able to attend, and if you missed it, look for news coverage this evening on 6 ABC or Channel 10 & Telemundo. It was a great turnout!

The students at the Elementary Campus learned all about fire safety today. Thank you to the Bensalem Fire Department for coming in and teaching us to be careful with flammable items to prevent fires from starting, to "Stop, Drop, and Roll", and to cover our face and stay low to avoid smoke inhalation. We also learned how important it is to check the fire alarm batteries to make sure they are working properly, so please do so in your home so we can all stay safe.

Elementary Parents - a couple of important reminders: - If your child is absent from school or being picked up early, you must send in a physical note OR email firstname.lastname@example.org to notify us. Schoology or emails to the teacher are not always seen or make it to the main office. - Children must be in full uniform during the school day. On cold days, they can wear a shirt under their SLCS polo shirt OR wear a SLCS fleece from Flynn & O'Hara. Children cannot wear hoodies or other jackets in class.
We are in need of a few more lunch aides! If you know of anyone interested, please have them apply here: https://slcs.tedk12.com/hire/ViewJob.aspx?JobID=315
