Sunset Valley Elementary 5/3/19

Jaguar Corner

Hello Jaguars!

  • SVE has been open 10 years. Hundreds and hundreds of students have walked these halls. Each and every student has made a positive impact on our school community. We have been blessed with fantastic and committed teachers and staff. Each staff member has made a positive difference in the lives of each Jaguar. We have a wonderful PTA and committed families! This equals A FANTASTIC SCHOOL COMMUNITY! Thank you for your support of Sunset Valley Elementary and LSR7. Our partnership these past 10 years has been exceptional and the main reason our students continue to find success.
  • MAP testing is going well and the kids are working really hard. There is a lot of work and preparation that has to be done behind the scenes, and I am grateful to Mrs. Mahurin and Mrs. DeMoss for their help in organizing this endeavor! It really is a rigorous assessment and It requires a significant amount of stamina from our students, but they are ready for the challenge! Thank you for your support during this assessment window. We all appreciate it very much!
  • SVE Average Daily Attendance (ADA) for the month of April was 96%!!!
  • An important reminder: Mother's Day is Sunday, May 12!!!
