Volunteer to Be a Home Room Parent!

Are you looking for a rewarding way to be involved at Sylvan Park? The PTO needs a Home
Room Parent (HRP) for each classroom. HRPs, a tradition at Sylvan Park, serve as a liaison between teachers, parents, and the PTO board. Please consider volunteering for this most rewarding role for your child’s classroom this year! Email Blair Gunn at blair.r.gunn@gmail.com if interested.

Additional Ways to See the School

You will have the opportunity to see your child’s classroom and meet the teacher 8/5/22, 3p-5p. If you are a KINDERGARTEN parent who is unable to attend the Ice Cream Social on 8/5, you will have an opportunity on Monday, 8/8, 12p-12:30p, to see your child’s classroom and briefly meet their teacher. School will be in session until 3p for 1st-5th grades so, this is a K parent opportunity only, for those who missed the 8/5 event. Please be aware that we are required to scan each adults driver’s license before entering the main building so come with your driver’s license. Please come through the front entrance of the school building to check-in at the front office.

We welcome our new SP families! If you are in grades 1st-5th and missed our 8/5 Roster reveal/ Meet the Teacher/ Ice Cream Social, we have arranged special tour times just for you! Please see syvlanparkschool.org to sign up for tours 8/16 or 8/23 at 9a or 9:45a. Feel free to contact ruthabutler@gmail.com with questions.

Kindergarten Tote Bags

Kindergarten students will NOT need a backpack as they will be using Sylvan Park tote bags. These bags fit in their Kindergarten lockers and are easy for the students to carry independently. Please send in $10 (or a check made to the Sylvan Park PTO) to cover the cost of your child’s bag – payments can be made at the Ice Cream Social or sent in during the first week of school. Tote bags will be sent home with Kindergarteners at the Ice Cream Social.
