Trunk or Treat Fun

Thank you to all who attended our 2nd Annual Trunk or Treat event! It was a great turnout and the kids had a blast. Special thanks to Ray Arceneaux and Lizzy Williams for coordinating such a fun night. And congratulations to the winning Trunk: Wayne’s World courtesy of Brown and Cunningham!

Connect Workshop

There are four spots available for couples to attend a relationship workshop hosted by parent Christina Coldiron. The workshop will be led by highly regarded licensed therapist Dr. Carol Stoney. Visit for more info.

Thanks for Stocking the Lounge!

Once again, our Sylvan Park community came through to shower our staff with love, appreciation, and yummy treats last Wednesday. Thank you for making teacher appreciation a priority!

A Note on Crossing Guards

There have been ongoing questions from parents around the lack of a crossing guard or proper safety precautions in areas surrounding our school. If you would like to contact Metro to relay your concerns, we encourage you to contact Sergeant Mark Denton.

Fun Run Raised $64,000!

We made it! $64,000! Yes, that’s up from our letter in student folders! We have so much to be proud of and we can’t say thanks enough to this community, both here in Nashville and extended, for helping us meet this goal. We are so excited to spoil our teachers, bring some incredible experiences to our Panthers, and make sure each and every student has an incredible rest of the year.

Peek at the sponsors on the back of the Fun Run t-shirts and on the magnets and go support them. And again, to all of you, thank you.

Keep an eye out for a special edition Fun Run newsletter coming soon! And give your kids a big high five from the Fun Run crew. They rocked it!

Book Fair This Week!

Our Scholastic Book Fair is this week, November 14-18. We are looking for a few more volunteers each morning to help kids shop, as well as volunteers to assist with clean up. Please sign up to help here.

Thank You for Your Supply Drive Help!

Thank you to Sylvan Park neighbor, Indro de Bock of eXpRealty, and his business partner, Jenn Otto, for hosting a fun community event at Richland Park! Attendees brought school supplies benefitting Sylvan Park Elementary and Park Avenue Elementary.

Fall Break Begins Friday
