New Location! – Neighborhood Tree Lighting

Sylvan Park Neighborhood Association will hold its first-ever holiday tree lighting ceremony on Tuesday, December 10 at 6 p.m. will now take place at the corner of 44th Avenue and Murphy Rd. near Billy’s Corner. West End band students will launch the event playing holiday songs and Sylvan Park students will close the ceremony leading us in carols. This will be an opportunity for neighbors across Sylvan Park to get together to celebrate and to begin what will hopefully become a new holiday tradition. If your child is interested in singing with a group of Sylvan Park students, please meet at 5:50 to run through the songs at Billy’s Corner. We will sing Jingle Bells, Rudolph, and We Wish You a Merry Christmas. Participation is open to all ages. Dress warmly and the tree lighting will go on rain, snow or shine.

Girl Scouts Fulfill Teacher Wishes

Sylvan Park Girl Scout Troop 672 donates wishlist items to the Related Arts classes! Mr. Burns’ Music classroom was in need of songbook binders and Ms. Williams’ Art classroom was in need of fresh art supplies. The troop is still working with SeƱora Poole and Coach Scott for their needs and plans to make those donations during the spring semester. The Girl Scouts wish everyone a safe and happy holiday break!

Third Grade Creek Walk

Third graders practiced making scientific observations by examining specimen – living and non-living – at Richland Creek. Students also got extra time in nature, walking from school to the observation site and back. Thank you to parent volunteers who helped make it a safe field trip!

Gratitude for Teachers & Staff

With Thanksgiving around the corner, we want to encourage you and/or your children to write a thank you note to a teacher or other staff member who makes their days at Sylvan Park fantastic. We have amazing teachers, administrative staff, custodians, cafeteria workers, paraprofessionals, and other support staff – let’s offer our gratitude!
