Kindergarten is studying life in the past, so Ms. Calverly has been digging through some Sylvan Park history in the library and found these gems from 1958. These are some students planting what later became the big magnolia tree out front. What a big difference a small act of service has made for our community!

Students learned about state & national symbols, habitats, westward expansion, space, renewable energy, and 1800’s America.

On March 6 the Sylvan Park Elementary PTO had our annual board retreat. We were lucky enough to have Yvonne Eaves come and speak with us about her time at Sylvan Park Elementary. She attended our school from 1963-1969 and still resides in Sylvan Park. It was an honor to hear about her experiences at our special school.
Sylvan Park was #1 in MNPS (yes, the entire district) for growing the most students in ELA into the 4th and 5th quintiles!!! Sylvan Park tied for 5th in MNPS for growing the most students in Math into the 4th and 5th quintiles!
