Jaguar Corner

Hello Jaguars!

  • SVE Field Day was SUPER FUN! Thanks to Mrs. Reynolds for organizing this very fun day!!
  • Thanks to everyone of our guests who came to have lunch with our lil' Jaguars this school year! We LOVE having guests come and be part of our school culture and community! As we enter the last week of school, we ask that guests refrain from coming up to lunch to eat with the lil' Jaguars. Many classes will adjust their schedules and eat outside, sign yearbooks, and other activities that will make it difficult to host guests during the lunch period. Thank you for understanding and we look forward to seeing everyone at lunch next year!
  • May 23 Student Chromebook Collection: All students will need to bring their chromebook and power supply on May 23. If a student is going to summer school and it is verified in our system, we will return device and charger to the student​. If there is a question as to whether or not the student will attend summer school, we will collect the device. Upon verification of enrollment, the Chromebook and power supply will be moved to the summer school location.
  • Here is the 2018-2019 SVE School Supply List

Mrs. Mahurin: Counseling Update

Monday, May 21st will be our 1st Annual "Spring Forward".

One of our SVE families had a house fire last Saturday. Thank you to so many that reached out to support this family. Attached is a list of items you can donate to help.

Coonce Family Thank You

On Saturday May 12th we had a house fire early in the morning. We are all safe and blessed to have not been home. We are very devastated by the loss of our home and our lives have definitely been flipped upside down. However we have been able to push through this traumatic time with the kind words of encouragement, hugs and donations from our SVE family! There are not enough thank you cards and hugs that we could give you! Gwyn, Jilllian, Zoe and I feel so comforted by the love and support you have shown us! You are all a blessing and I thank God every day that we have you in our lives!


The PTA needs to have 25 PTA members present in order to vote on the revised bylaws. Unfortunately, we did not reach this goal at the 6th grade DARE graduation on Thursday, May 10th. So, the PTA is scheduling a unit meeting (open to all PTA members) at the 6th Grade Recognition Ceremony on Thursday, May 24th, at 6:00 pm. This will only take 5 minutes, but we do ask if you are a PTA member, we would appreciate it if you could attend to vote on the revised bylaws, which are available on the PTA website: Thank you!

End of Year Progress Reports

Fourth quarter progress reports will be sent electronically on Friday, May 25. As an added measure of security, the district requires a password to be entered before the download will open. The password required on each document is the student number. If you do not know your student's number, please log into the PowerSchool parent portal to access that information from the student user name info page.

2018-2019 Online Enrollment

Dear Lee’s Summit R-7 Families,

Lee’s Summit R-7 families will soon receive information and instructions on how to enroll their children for the 2018-2019 school year. Through the district’s online enrollment, families are able to complete registration from any location with Internet access. New for this year will be a smart phone or iOS capability to complete the online process. Families will be receiving additional information about online enrollment from their schools with the Power School Registration (formerly known as InfoSnap) enrollment portal opening on July 13.

As we near the end of this school year, we want to remind you that registration for the upcoming year will be online in the month of July. YOU MUST be able to log into your PowerSchool Parent Portal account to begin the registration process. This link will take you to the login page. We encourage each of you to test your account in May to make sure you can get into the system and are not slowed down by this in July. The directions for logging into Powerschool can be found here. If you have any problems logging in, please contact your school office. Thank you!
