Greetings and welcome to the Sligo Creek Elementary School community. We are so happy you are here. The mission of the PTA is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. The SCES PTA does this by sponsoring academic, cultural, athletic and interpersonal development events and by providing resources to fill the gaps and enhance the MCPS experience.

Wish List illustration with check boxes and a hopeful little rainbow

  • Do you love throwing a party? Is bringing people together your superpower? We have immediate openings for committee members to help our Vice President of Events, Jennifer Meyer, plan the Welcome Back Social, scheduled for September 15 (date to be confirmed by SCES) on the school playground. This is an outdoor event for our entire school and the first chance we've had in a year and a half to come together as a community! Be a part of the excitement. Contact Jennifer at  
  • Are you a sender of kind notes, a thoughtful gift-giver, an energetic champion of others? You could lead our Staff Appreciation Committee. We're all committed to finding meaningful ways to appreciate our incredible staff at SCES. Still, it really helps to have that ONE person who can lead the way in rallying the community and planning how to best support our staff. Are you that person? Please get in touch with Rick Bacon, Lisa Ferrugia Atkinson, or me for more details on leading this vital PTA Committee.
