LaCrosse Skills Clinic at West End

The West End Middle School Lacrosse team will be holding twice weekly Fall Skill Building Practices for 4th-8th graders beginning September 15 and continuing through October 23.  Practices will be held at West End Middle School Wednesday 4:00-5:30 and Sunday 2:00-4:00.

We welcome players of any experience level that are interested in getting to know the sport, learning lacrosse techniques and game strategies and, most importantly, having fun!  Cost is $50 total – All participants must obtain a US Lacrosse membership ($30), the remaining $20 participation fee is payable to West End Lacrosse Club.
If your player does not have equipment, not to worry, we have full sets to lend to players -you just need to supply your own mouthguard

4th Graders:  This is an excellent way to get to know West End students. Lacrosse is a club sport, so you can play JV Lacrosse as a 5th grader at West End. If interested, please email for any questions and registration links.  And spread the word!

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 to view eligible products and how to get credit from online stores.

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!
