Box Tops for Sylvan Park

Box Tops for Education is going digital!

This year, there will be two ways to save money for Sylvan Park School:

1) Cut out and collect Box Tops located on many name brand product packaging such as General Mills cereal, Lysol cleaner, Hefty trash bags, and MANY more. Recycle the box, bring the Box Top in! Have your child put the Box Tops in the Ziplock Box Top Bag in their classroom.
Tip: ​ Please only bring Box Tops with expiration dates past ​11/01/19. ​ We cannot get any money for our school with expired tops.

2) Starting summer 2019, Box Tops is going digital and you will be able to scan your receipt using a mobile app. Download Apple app​ or Google play app. Visit boxtops4education.com to view eligible products and how to get credit from online stores.

PTO in the Park

Bring a picnic dinner, visit with other Panther families, and learn what’s happening at school. Our PTO meetings are open to ALL parents and caregivers! This event is a community gathering for both children and caregivers.

Fun Run Kickoff Friday!

Our first annual Panther Pride Fun Run kicks off this Friday, Sept 6th!  All students will have the opportunity to take part in our Fun Run Pep Rally and each will receive a Fun Run wristband, which includes the link to our online donation form.

Throughout September, financial donations may be made by parents, grandparents, neighbors, family and friends. We’re seeking monetary contributions earmarked for technology, books, supplies, recreational equipment and community and family events. The Panther Pride Fun Run Campaign will be the only time this year that we ask for monetary donations for our school. 

Our campaign will conclude with our school-wide Fun Run on Friday, October 4th.  The Fun Run will take place on our outdoor track during each grades’ Related Arts time.  All students and teachers will receive a free Fun Run t-shirt and have the opportunity to participate in this year’s Fun Run (with or without a donation).  We encourage parents, family members and friends to attend.

Keep an eye out for a flyer with donation details to come home in your child’s folder this Friday!

Stock the Teachers’ Lounge

Let’s show our Sylvan Park staff how much we love them by filling their lounge with necessities and special treats! Please bring all items to the downstairs staff lounge on Wednesday, September 11. If you would like to bring non-perishable items early, please ensure that they are clearly marked “Teacher Appreciation” and drop them in the main office.

New PTO Diversity Committee Bulletin Board

The PTO Diversity Committee has completed our first bulletin board of the school year! Throughout the year, we use this space to highlight the diversity in Sylvan Park and our world. We hope you ask your child(ren) about each display and utilize the messages as a starting point for family discussions. If you are interested in joining the committee to work this and other projects, email Valerie Cordero at valerie.d.cordero@gmail.com.
