Sunset Valley Elementary 4/12/19

Jaguar Corner

Hello Jaguars!

-I wanted to let you know that the great and wonderful Mrs. Kayla Taylor, Assistant Principal at Sunset Valley, has taken a new position as lead Principal at Pleasant Hill Elementary School in the Pleasant Hill School District. She will begin her new position in July of 2019. Mrs. Taylor has been at SVE since it opened, 10 years ago. Mrs. Taylor has been an integral part of the success at SVE and we will miss her dearly. Mrs. Taylor is an extremely talented educator and I know she will excel in Pleasant Hill! However, you'll always be a Jaguar :-)

-I am pleased to announce, Mrs. Rachel Flood will serve as the full-time Assistant Principal at Sunset Valley beginning with the 2019-2020 school year. She is currently the traveling Assistant Principal between Longview Farm Elementary and Hazel Grove Elementary. Two of my own kids, Bryce and Mary Kate, have Mrs. Flood as their Assistant Principal at LFE and love her. I am in a bit of trouble with them since she is leaving LFE to come to SVE! Mrs. Flood and her family are residents of Lee's Summit. Mrs. Flood taught previously in the Blue Springs School District at William Bryant Elementary. She will make a few visits to SVE this spring to meet students and staff. Welcome Mrs. Flood!

SVE Students Make Our World A Better Place!

SVE students DREAM BIG! We are so proud of our students and families at SVE! We have a few 5th grade students who have brainstormed ways to help children at KU Pediatric Cancer Center. Through their leadership, and support from SVE Student Council, we have a book drive happening right now! These children's books will be donated to the KU Pediatric Center so children have books to read during their treatments. Very cool!

We also have 5th grade students who, through their leadership, are sponsoring a drive to support pets in the area. Their current project supports the KC PET PROJECT and WAYSIDE WAIFS. Students can bring in pet supplies to help these local organizations! Great leadership and care from our kids!!

I am very proud of these students and all of our SVE Jaguars!!
