2023 INVEST Campaign: We Made It!

We started this year with the most ambitious fundraising goal that we have ever had… And we made it!

Thank you so very much, we could not have made it without the generous support of each and every member of our Sylvan Park Elementary Community. Your generous donations have helped to fund the instructional interventionist, a position which provides crucial support for students who are not at grade level, and benefits all Sylvan Park students.

Special thank You’s to Jenn Morse, Jamie Hess, Ashley Ryan, OscarAnderson, Leah Monica and Jon Wright for a STRONG INVEST campaign 

A huge Thank You to all our business sponsors:

Laps, Bubbles, Popsicles, & Medals… A Fabulous 2023 Fun Run

We had a fabulously successful 2023 Fun Run!

The students came out by grade during their related arts period, decked out in their fancy new shirts. After Coach Scott led everyone through warm up, the runners were off. Making it all the way around the track and through the ballon arch marked the completion of a lap. Four complete laps earned a medal, popsicle, and bracelet.

Thank You to Everyone who helped to make this such a great event!

Fun Run Shirts are available for $12

Our school is a UniCycle Partner! Uniform + Recycle = UniCycle.

Help us to keep our school closet stocked with great options for any student who needs them by donating what no longer fits. Remember to donate outgrown Spirit Wear and leggings as well!

We collect and use “outgrown, not worn out” school clothing in our school UniCycle Closet. If you spend some time cleaning out seasonal items over Fall Break, we’re ready to receive them. The donation basket is in the main lobby – drop off anytime!

Student Work from the School Wide Seminar on Elephant in the Dark

In September students participated in our first school-wide seminar for the 2023-2024 school year!  Our text for this seminar was Elephant in the Dark (based on a poem by Rumi; Retold by Mina Javaherbin).  In this seminar we discussed the values of perceptions, truth, understanding, differences, and cooperation.  For our post seminar activity, students worked in groups to write and/or draw what working together or solving a disagreement might look and sound like in our classrooms. 

Ask your child about this engaging and meaningful learning experience!
