Sunset Valley Elementary 1/26/18

Jaguar Corner

Hello Jaguars!

-We have cool kids at SVE! They come from great families! Each and every day I see our kids perform amazing acts of kindness and provide support for one another. Our kids:

  • Serve as peer mentors
  • Assist students with reading
  • Volunteer to take some of their recess to help another student
  • Peer buddy for our friends in the Medically Fragile Program
  • Are peer role models for students in the C.L.A.S.S. and Life Skills Program
  • Help other students with their math facts
  • Reach out to others who may need a friend
  • Stand up for one another
  • Serve on the Broadcast Journalism Team
  • SVE Alumni (High School Students) return to SVE weekly to help support students and staff! What a great compliment to this team and community when former students return to give back!!

Advocate for our kids!

The 'R-7 Advocacy' electronic newsletter provides interested individuals with relevant and timely information about legislative activities. Through this electronic communication, we will also occasionally ask subscribers to consider contacting their elected officials about specific proposed legislation that would impact Lee's Summit R-7 students.

If you would like to subscribe to this newsletter, please visit or e-mail Janice Phelan at and ask to be added to the list. The R-7 Legislative Platform is available at This website also includes a list of area elected officials and a Toolkit for Advocacy, developed with the assistance of the Missouri School Boards Association.

Have a great story?

Do you have a story about your child that you'd like to share focusing on his or her success in school? As part of "The Story Project," Lee's Summit R-7 is featuring personal stories about our students and their accomplishments in school. We are looking for stories about a specific incident or an individual school staff member making a positive difference for your child.

The stories may be about children from birth through high school and may be submitted by parents and guardians of both past and present students. Stories should be 200 words or less and should go to You may also contact Janice Phelan to provide general information, and she will draft your story for your review.
