Volunteer Clearances

It has recently come to the attention of Administration, Homeroom Teachers, and the PTO that some clearances submitted earlier in the year were not added to the master spreadsheet and cannot be accounted for. Those of you who have submitted clearances may wish to check with Sloan Secretary Felicia Dusetzina (fdusetzina@franklinregional.k12.pa.us) to see if they are on record in the office before your next volunteer activity. For those of you who have not yet obtained clearances, but plan to, we recommend that you make copies for your own records before turning them in. Links to the district's Volunteer Policy and Clearance Forms may be found here.




PTO Vacancies

The PTO is in need of volunteers next year to chair Fall Family Fun Night, scheduled for Friday, October 11, and the Science & Art Fair, scheduled for Friday, April 25. Fall Family Fun Night is a fun kick-off event that celebrates our Sloan community and the beginning of the new school year.The Science & Art Fair is a special opportunity for our children to showcase their creativity, grasp of the scientific method, and artistic skills.Both are historically meaningful events, and we'd like for the tradition to continue.We are also looking for a volunteer to serve as Co-Chair with Jodi Horvath on the Kindergarten Welcoming and New Student Orientation Committee, as Jodi will be moving on from Sloan at the end of next school year. If you are interested in chairing any of these committees, please contact Debby Rhea at kafking@hotmail.com.

Thank you!

Bus Driver Appreciation Day

Bus Driver Appreciation Day will be held next Monday, June 3, during morning bus arrival. If you or your children have signed up to help, please remember to be at Sloan by 8:15 AM.  

If you missed the deadline to register to lend a hand, fear not. More volunteers would be welcomed and appreciated!  If making hand-held thank you signs, cheering and greeting the drivers as they arrive, and helping deliver treat bags sounds like your speed, please call or text Bus Driver Appreciation Day Chair Beth McCormick ASAP at 724-325-8418 or bethmccormick12@comcast.net.


Lastly, if you would like to spread some cheer and thanks right from your children's bus stops, you can!  Simple gestures like holding signs or balloons for our drivers to express your gratitude would surely surprise and please them.


Thank you!
