Jaguar Corner

Hello Jaguars!

  • Thank you to our terrific PTA for a great Read A Thon Fundraiser! Mrs. Boehm and her team did a remarkable job and it was great to see all of our kids READING!
  • 20+ students got to drench me with water balloons! In Principal School, I took Advanced Water Balloon Drenching II (online course). I was prepared! The Jaguars did a great job getting me drenched! Thank you to Mrs. Booker, Mrs. Boehm and Mrs. Shortino for helping organize the event!
  • THANK YOU for making time to attend Parent Teacher Conferences! We greatly appreciate you!
  • Red Ribbon Week is next week!

SVE PTA Fall Party!

  • We are so excited for our SVE Fall Parties at Sylvia Bailey Park, on October 31st. ()ur rain out date is November 2, 2017.) This is the first time, school-wide, we have had the opportunity to celebrate at the park. Your child will have a fun-filled party outside with some activities including: playing in a corn pile, climbing on hay, running through a corn maze, and much more. Your child will get dirty, but have a great time!

    • Sixth grade students will enjoy a longer celebration in the park, while enjoying Little Caesar’s pizza. Students K-5, and Mrs. Rader’s class, will enjoy cookies, made in our own SVE cafeteria (for ingredient list click here) in their classrooms.

    • In the past, students K-3 have worn costumes on this day, but knowing that the children will get dirty and Halloween Festivties are that evening, parents are welcome to send a costume, but it is not required. Students K-3 and the Medically Fragile students will parade 10 minutes before their scheduled party in the park.

    • Fall Party Schedule:

      • *Note 10 minutes before the party, K-3 and Mrs. Rader’s class will parade out to Sylvia Bailey Park. Parents please line-up near wooden bridge.

Mrs. Brown's students worked on making a quilt! The kids each picked out 9 squares, arranged and sewed them to make their personal block for the blanket. The kids also helped with the border and back of the quilt. Way to go!
