PTA Information [repeated]

Student Directory

As a benefit to joining PTA you will get access to the student directory. This is a great way to contact other parents in your child's class and should not be used for solicitation. This will be available online password protected to PTA members only. If you do NOT want your child's contact information listed you must fill out this form by Wednesday, August 28th. Otherwise you will be in the directory. Thank you!

Membership & Spirit Wear

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. Please consider showing your support by becoming a member today and don't forget to check out the spirit wear available too!
