Welcome to Sylvan Park Elementary!

Founded in 1907, Sylvan Park Elementary is rich in history and tradition, with an emphasis on looking to the future. We are located in the heart of Sylvan Park and enjoy a rewarding and solid relationship with residents and businesses in the area. Our school is proud to offer a variety of learning opportunities based on the Paideia teaching method as well as numerous extracurricular activities, such as Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, Chess Club, school soccer team, and many more.

What makes our school a wonderful, close-knit, and diverse community is the involvement of the parents. Sylvan Park Elementary is truly what we make it through our time and monetary commitments. The PTO has a wide variety of opportunities for participation. Whatever your interests, talents and availability, we have places for you to plug in and contribute. Be sure to let us know what you are interested in helping with in the coming year – we welcome your help and involvement!

We would also like to take a moment to highlight our Invest in Your Child campaign. The Sylvan Park PTO has a long term goal of moving from fundraising through sales and events to funding through donations made by parents, grandparents, and other interested parties. As a PTO, we are a 501c3 organization and all donations are tax deductible. No donation amount is too small, and every dollar helps pay for important support items for our teachers that enhance our children’s education.

Examples of PTO purchases for the school include:

  • Sound system for the school auditorium
  • Website subscriptions for math, reading and more, used in the classroom and at home
  • Document cameras for every classroom
  • Laptops for teachers
  • Mounted projectors for classrooms
  • Supplies for art classes
  • $100 gift cards for every teacher at the beginning of the school year
  • And more!

The Sylvan Park PTO officers are always available and happy to answer any questions that you may have about the school. Please feel free to contact us any time at pto.spark@gmail.com. You can also call the school at 298-8423 or visit our website, www.sylvanparkschool.org, for information about the school, events, the Hillsboro cluster, and much more.

All the best, Sylvan Park PTO 2014-15 Board
