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.



Staff Appreciation Writing Prompts

5/8/2024 7:52 am

"Notes from the Heart" Friday


Here are a few prompts that Ashley Briefel and I created (with thanks to Carmina Galvez for checking/correcting my French translations!) for "Notes from the Heart" Friday. In case your kiddo is like mine and freezes up when presented with a blank sheet of paper and asked to write something, here are some options for note writing in English and French.


We'll have printed copies of these at the table by the media center on Friday, but in case you have a home printer and would like to write them with your student in advance, here you go! Thanks for sharing your Notes from the Heart on Friday. It's been a challenging year for some of our staff and they'd love to hear from you and your student(s) about what went well.

Book Fair!

12/4/2023 8:40 pm


It's time for the SCES Book Fair!!!
The Book Fair featuring Scholastic and Bonjour Books is right around the corner!! The Book Fair is December 11-15 from 9:30-3:30 and on December 12th will be open from 6-8pm with a night for adults to come shop and buy. Our goal is to make sure all the students can get books and provide a huge selection of books that celebrate diversity and inclusion. Parents are welcome to come and shop throughout the day during the Book Fair.
The children will be able to purchase books at any point during the week. They will have an opportunity to visit the book fair with their class throughout the week.
  • Scholastic books can be paid for by cash, credit card, check, or e-wallet. We are encouraging families to set up e-wallets for scholastic books. This is the easiest way for your child to not have to carry cash and be able to purchase what they would like.
  • Bonjour Books will be providing books in French for our students. To pay for these books, you can only use cash or credit card.
Volunteer: We are still looking for volunteers to help with all aspects of the book fair, from setting up to take down, running registers and helping students select books. It is a lot of fun to help the children chose and enjoy their books. Please sign up using the Sign up Genius if you are able to help. You do not need to sign up for a slot, just sign into the main office. If you have any questions, please contact
SSL Hours: If you have a 6th grader or above that can help out at night and would love to earn SSL Hours, please contact

It's Time for the Salamander Stride!

9/28/2023 11:00 pm


The Salamander Stride is a non-competitive Fun Run that encourages physical activity and celebrates our students. It is a volunteer-planned community event where parents, guardians, and family members join staff to cheer our students on.

Every student who is able to stride, roll, walk, or run participates in the way they are able, and every dollar raised goes to fund the support and enrichment of staff and students at Sligo Creek Elementary School.
