SVE 10 Year Anniversary: Spring 2019

Hard to believe that SVE will be 10 years old in Spring of 2019! Many of you have been here since the opening in 2009, others are new this year. As we think of all the schools we have been in as a child or as a parent, SVE is a very special and unique place. I hear from families, community patrons, students, famous SVE alumni, and others that SVE is just "special". I wholeheartedly agree. I knew it was a special place when I first arrived 2 years ago. We have had a special principal serve SVE in Mrs. Beth Trigg, fantastic teachers, a supportive PTA, fantastic families, and GREAT KIDS! I know many of you have special stories, memories and insights as to why SVE is special as well. We would love to include those in our celebration in the spring and ask If you have time, email those to me. I can be reached at
