The Principal's Den
- Thank you to everyone who helped make the first SVES PTA fundraiser such a huge success. Today was the day that I dressed up like a chicken to celebrate us selling over 250 boxes of the World's Finest Chocolate. Check out the video below to see me doing the Chicken Dance then check out our Twitter page @SunsetValleyES for more pictures and videos.
- To celebrate us selling over 350 boxes, ALL students and staff are invited to wear a favorite hat on Wednesday, October 19th.

Future Chef Competition
It’s that time of year again for the Keller ISD Future Chef competition. The feature theme will be Healthy Comfort Foods. The competition will be open to fourth and fifth graders this year. The actual event will take place in March. More information will be coming very soon but the district wanted to get the word out now so when it's time to submit recipes in advance, your student will have a little extra time to start planning. They will be picking the top 10 recipes to compete. Again, more information will follow.

ROCK - Message of the Week
Reaching Out with Character and Kindness isn’t just a once a year thing. We want our students, staff and parents sharing the message of R.O.C.K. every day. This year, KellerISD will be sharing a weekly message at all of our schools and in our community. The Weekly R.O.C.K. message will focus on character, kindness and commitments that each of us can make to prevent bullying and harassment in Keller ISD.
Here is this week's message:
When it comes to bullying and harassment, reporting is very important. If you feel that you are being bullied or see someone being bullied, please let a staff member know so that an investigation can be done. Remember, reporting is an important step in solving the problem.
