-You are invited to Sunset Valley PTA Grandparents/Special Friends Day on Thursday, November 29, 8:00 to 9:00 AM (breakfast ends at 8:35 AM). Bring your student(s) and join us first in the cafeteria for a BREAKFAST TREAT or enter the library to explore our Book Fair (opening for this special event from 8:00 to 9:00 AM). The teachers will open their classrooms at 8:15, so the students can show their visitors their class. Students must remain with their grandparent/special friend until the bell rings at 9:00AM. Parking is always at a premium, and staff will be out to assist with parking. The back playground will once again be utilized for parking.

-Lil' Jaguars! Please considering playing the Greg Tang Math Turkey Challenge!!

-The PTA board meeting that was cancelled due to snow has been rescheduled for Monday, November 19th at 6:00 PM in the school library. If you could join us, that would be great!

5th Grade PE Field Trip: Kansas City Mavericks

Our 5th grade Jaguars recently took a field trip to watch the Kansas City Mavericks take on the Wichita Thunder! The students are learning about the game of hockey from Mrs. Reynolds in their PE classes and this was a great extension of that learning! The students did a GREAT JOB, and represented SVE extremely well. The students won a prize for their section being the "loudest/most cheer"!! The kids loved the field trip and were thankful to Mrs. Reynolds, 5th grade teachers, and volunteers for their assistance in making this a great opportunity for learning. The Kansas City Mavericks won the contest 5-3!!

Book Fair is coming up!
