Sunset Valley Elementary 09.20.19


Thank you to everyone who joined us at the PTA Family Picnic on Tuesday. We always treasure time spent with our Jaguar families. I certainly enjoyed the good food, activities, and laughter on our playground. A huge shout out to our PTA for organizing this event and providing opportunities for our families to connect!
