Sunset Valley Elementary 03.20.2020


Get Ready SVE Families! The SVE Prep Parade is coming to your neighborhood THIS Monday, March 23rd! Our hope is to bring some excitement for the weeks ahead in our online adventures. To maintain proper social distancing protocols, we will be in cars to drive by and wave at our students and families. We are encouraging families to watch from their windows or front porch. We cannot wait to see those smiling faces. Please take note of our approximate parade times. Won't be home? Don't worry! We will also be streaming live on our Facebook page!

To add a little more fun to the mix, we have created a Scavenger Hunt page of things to watch for as the parade cruises through your neighborhood! Here is the link for the SVE Parade Scavenger Hunt, which can be seen below. Find as many as you can and share your results with us via Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter using @svelsr7 and #SVEPrepParade.

Resources from LSR7 to support students and parents with e-Learning


As you know, we've been using Schoology all year long as our primary e-learning platform for students. Teachers use Schoology to regularly communicate with families as well as for daily instruction with students. Now, more than ever, Schoology has become a critical part of the work we do. It is imperative, then, that ALL of our families have access to the platform. If you are new to SVE or just haven't had a chance to sign up yet, please do so today.

Click HERE for detailed directions on how to sign up for Schoology as well as information about how to navigate the system. Please reach out with any questions you may have. We are here to help parents, too!

Read Along with SVE Staff via Schoology

In addition to joining your child's teacher or grade level "group" on Schoology, please be sure to ask your child if they have joined the Read Along with SVE Staff Course on Schoology, too! This course was started at the beginning of the school year and features teachers and staff reading books aloud for our Jaguar Nation to enjoy. Many students have joined already, and we will be positing additional book readings here, so be sure to get connected! (The access code to join is shown to the left.)
Need Internet Access?

We know that virtual learning can't take place without internet access. If you have limited or no internet access at home, consider these many options.
