Jaguar Corner

Hello Jaguars!

-HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope this finds Jaguar Nation ready to rock 2nd semester!! We missed everyone over winter break so we are happy to have everyone back at school!

-Don't forget to order your yearbook by January 11th! Click here for the PTA website and yearbook ordering information.

-Progress reports will be emailed to you today. Please remember to log in to the portal with your child's lunch number.

-There was a lot of great learning on January 3! Great topics on executive functioning, reading/writing, and recognition of staff!

-Can the Chiefs win their first playoff game at home? Sounds like an opportunity to incorporate Math and a survey poll! :-)

-You may notice that your kids are no longer talking about the online resource, ISTATION. LSR7 has elected not to renew the purchase of this resource and is researching other options. We'll keep you posted.

-If your child was in grades 3-6 last year and took the MAP test, those results are trickling in from the Education Department and will be released soon.


One of our biggest and most fun events at SVE is coming up on Friday, March 8th, 6-8:30 - The Carnival Family Fun Night! We need your help planning! Have any ideas or suggestions? Would you have any time to help make this event a success? Please attend our PTA meeting on Mon. Jan 14th at 6:00 in the school library. If you'd like to help, but can't make the meeting, please contact Genevieve Boehm at If we have several volunteers, no one person has a job too big!

Please consider helping on the 2019-2020 PTA Board. We are all volunteers and we'd love to see new faces and get new ideas! The board positions are: President, 1st VP, 2nd VP, Treasurer, and Secretary. We'd love to tell you more - just attend our next meeting on Mon. Jan 14th at 6:00 pm in the library or contact us at
