Membership & Spirit Wear (repeated)

Our PTA helps in big and small ways each year and couldn't make an impact at SVE without members like you. Not only does your membership get you access to the digital directory but it helps make class parties possible and contributes $5 per student for field trips. During the 2018-2019 school year the PTA also funded the purchase of 2 outdoor lunch tables, hosted special events like Grandparents Breakfast and Movie night.
