Let’s Finish Our Fun Run Campaign Strong!
Let’s finish our Fun Run Campaign strong – we’ve only got a little over one week to go! Among other things, your dollars will assist other Panthers through our hardship fund, so let’s help each other out! Individual donations last week ranged from $5 to $1000 and every one of your donations helps contribute to our community. If you haven’t donated yet, click here. EVERY. DOLLAR. MATTERS. We’re already getting excited about some experiences we can bring to our Sylvan park Panthers and if you have ideas on educational opportunities we could bring to Sylvan Park, please email email@example.com

Paideia Seminar Wrap Up
We wrapped up our first school-wide seminar last week. In this seminar, classes read the story, The Me I Choose to Be by Natasha Anastasia Tarpley and discussed the ideas and values of identity, empowerment, and self-worth. Students answered the question “Who do you choose to be?” for the post seminar activity. Ask your child about this exciting and engaging learning experience.
James Bowling’s Brass Band Bazaar Returns September 24
It’s back! Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 24, 2022, for the return of James Bowling’s Brass Band Bazaar in the heart of Sylvan Park. This FREE neighborhood festival recalls the founding of Sylvan Park, circa 1900, when a brass band and cannon fire heralded the establishment of what was then Nashville’s newest neighborhood. The event is named in honor of Sylvan Park’s original founder, James Bowling.
Come and join us from 10a.m.-5p.m. at 45th Ave. and Murphy Rd. for music, food, local artisans, and fun for the whole family. More info: brassbandbazaar.com
A Successful PTO in the Park
Thank you to all who joined us at PTO in the Park last Thursday! It was great to see so many Sylvan Park families out together on a nice evening!
Only 2.5 Weeks Left to Reach Our Fun Run Goal!
We are over halfway to reaching our goal with 2.5 weeks left to donate! There are only two popsicle party weeks left to win your child’s classroom a party. Your Fun Run donations will be used to create a student hardship fund, ensuring that all Panthers have access to shopping at the book fair, field trips, and uniforms. Funds will also go to the purchase of a color printer and will bring unique arts experiences and assemblies to our school. Click here to donate today! You can also donate via cash or check by sending your donation directly to school!
First Paideia Seminar
Between September 6-16th, students will participate in our first school-wide seminar. For this seminar, we are reading the story The Me I Choose to Be by Natasha Anastasia Tarpley and discussing the ideas and values of identity, empowerment, and self-worth. Ask your child about this exciting and engaging learning experience!
So Long, Summer! Bash at Richland Park
Join our neighborhood friends on Sunday, September 25 from 1-4pm for food, fun, and a supply drive to benefit Sylvan Park and Park Avenue schools!
Thank You For Your Help!
Thanks to all the parents who donated items for last week’s Stock the Lounge event! We are always excited to show our appreciation to our amazing staff and we couldn’t do it without our amazing families!
Fun Run Goals By Grade
Hopefully last week’s Special Edition Newsletter provided a lot of great information on the Fun Run, our goal, and sponsorship opportunities. Big thanks to those who have donated so far! Kindergarten is leading all the other grades and hopefully you’re hearing from your student if they won a popsicle party last week! There are still 3 weeks to win before the run!
Starting next week we’ll be more focused on working towards our classroom goals. The goal for most grades is $8,000. Winners last week were based on sheer volume, so it’s working together as a community with both large and smaller donations that’s truly making a difference. We just ask that you do what you can and know that we appreciate ALL of you!
If you have any questions about the campaign or the Fun Run itself, we’ll be at the PTO in the Park event on the 15th, so look for us and we’re happy to answer whatever questions you have!
Calling All Sponsors!
We are still accepting sponsorships for this year’s Fun Run! If you own a business or know someone who does that would be interested in sponsoring this year, please email email@example.com to learn more about donor benefits.
