Brrr…Time to Order More Spirit Wear!

With the weather changing and some students returning to in-person learning, it’s a great time to order Spirit Wear! Please be sure to provide your student’s name and teacher when ordering. If your student is not back at school, please add the “ship to home” option to your cart.

Video Tour of West End Middle School

With MNPS facilities currently closed to anyone but MNPS staff and students, the West End Middle PTSO created a video tour for prospective families. West End Middle is our pathway middle school for zoned families and open to lottery families through the Optional Schools application process.

Fun Run Extended to October 25

In light of the recent back to school changes to virtual and in-person learning, this year’s Fun Run Fundraising Campaign has been extended through October 25th.  If you have not done so already, we encourage you and your child/children to participate by walking/jogging/running 1 mile anytime before Sunday, October 25th.  You may print your child’s participation completion certificate here.

A reminder that not only is this a fun activity for our students, but it is also our school’s ONLY major fundraiser for the 2020-21 school year.  Any amount families and SP supporters are able to give not only goes a LONG way in redoing the bookroom, and also helps with non-budgeted purchases like playground enhancements, technology, etc.  There is no donation too small.  And do not forget to share the donation link with family, friends, and SP supporters.


And finally, If your student(s) did not yet receive their FREE purple Fun Run t-shirt please click here to complete a form and t-shirt pickup/drop off will be arranged. You do not need to complete the form if you have already picked up/received your child/children’s shirt.

Thank you for your continued support! Go Panthers!

Approval of Air Purifiers for Cafeteria

Sylvan Park’s community approved the purchase of 4 air purifiers by the PTO for the school cafeteria. Combined with the existing HVAC systems, these purifiers will increase the air changes per hour to over 6, which would provide the highest air changes per hour recommended by the Harvard School of Public Health’s Healthy Schools report. The air purifiers will be installed in time for students’ return to the cafeteria this week.
