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.

Thankful for the hands that help us learn

11/19/2021 10:37 am

SCES staff each received a fall-themed bottle of foaming hand soap with a tag reading "Thankful for the hands that help us learn" as a small token of our appreciation.

Please let them know how thankful you are if you get the chance! We're fortunate to have such dedicated, kind, compassionate staff at our school, from our cafeteria staff to our building staff to our administrators and educators.
