Information for Entering Kindergarten Families

Sylvan Park is excited to welcome our new Kindergarten families in August! We know you are excited too, but also a little nervous about this big milestone. There will be lots of information coming in July, so keep watch on the newsletter as we get closer to the start of school. In the meantime, here are a few important things to know:

-Don’t forget to register! Kindergarten Registration is open. Registering early helps our school plan for your student. Find out more:

-You can get a head start on back to school shopping by purchasing a School Supply Kit with everything the Kindergarten teachers requested in one box delivered directly to your child’s classroom before the 1st day of school. Sylvan Park PTO also gets a portion of the proceeds! Simply order online at Enter our school’s account number 79045.  Order the Kindergarten Girl or Boy box. Place your order by May 28, 2021. Questions? Contact Theresa Yarber at

-Will your student need before or aftercare? Our onsite option is PNA (Project for Neighborhood Aftercare). Check out for enrollment information. Contact Yawanda McCord with questions,

-Sylvan Park students wear “Standard School Attire” (SSA) for school each day. This means shirts with collars in solid colors–no stripes, no patterns, no words. (Any Insignia on the shirts must be less than 2 inches in diameter.) Pants, skirts, or shorts in khaki, navy blue, or black may also be worn. SSA can be purchased at Walmart, Target, Old Navy, etc, and is usually easy to find in the weeks before school starts.

-Students may also wear Sylvan Park “Spirit Wear” (shirts and sweatshirts with

the Sylvan Park logo). Links to the Online Spirit Wear store can be found on the PTO website, For early summer orders, please select the Ship to Home option. Look in the July newsletter for ship to school order options and deadlines.
