    What's the focus of Summer SLAM?
    The elementary summer school program, SLAM 2018 (Summer Learning And More) is going to center around STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) activities! STEAM education encourages kids to ask questions, solve real world problems, think creatively and be innovative. We are also very excited about offering a STEAM themed class as a specials class for all of our SLAM students! Current assistant principal at Sweeny Elementary, Chris Lockmiller will be the Elementary Summer School Principal, and Mrs. Leanne Gove who is the assistant principal at Lyon Elementary will serve as the assistant. We are looking forward to a summer full of leadership development and STEAM related learning!
    What's the schedule for Summer SLAM?
    Summer school for elementary students will begin on May 29th and end on June 22nd. School is in session each day, Monday through Friday. Summer SLAM time is 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.  Doors will open at 7:45 a.m. To ensure a smooth pick-up process, we are asking that adults picking up Kindergarten students arrive at 2:40 p.m., park and come in the building to pick up their Kindergarten student and any siblings.

    SLAM 2018 will be housed in two buildings. Since no transportation is provided during summer school, this will help us ensure a smooth traffic flow process for our community. Lyon and Price will be the two sites used. Lyon will house all students who regularly attend Sweeny and Lyon, while Price will house all students who regularly attend Price, Schofield, and McCulloch. If you do not attend the Republic School District, but are joining us for Summer SLAM and are unsure of the location you are to attend, please call 417.732.3670.
