West End Middle Partnership

Families who are geographically zoned to attend Sylvan Park or Eakin are also geographically zoned to attend West End for middle school. Sylvan Park and Eakin lottery families have priority in the West End lottery. To learn more about the West End, visit their PTO website here: http://westendptso.org/

We partner with West End and Hillsboro in an effort to build a strong pathway option for all families in our community. You may support West End by participating in INVEST IN WEST here: http://westendptso.org/invest-in-west/

The Race is On!

Our first annual Panther Pride Fun Run Campaign kicked off last Friday with a school-wide Pep Rally.  Students received their Fun Run wristbands and got to share in their excitement as a student body, with a few cheers and LOTS of screaming.  

To make a donation to this year’s Fun Run Campaign: visit our online site at https://www.sylvanparkschool.org/donate/
** From this page, you can find your student(s) class page.  If you have more than one child for which you would like to make a donation, you will need to split the donation between classrooms, as we are not able to do so on our end.  Financial donations may be made throughout the month of September.  

To buy a Fun Run T-Shirt: visit our online site at https://www.sylvanparkschool.org/donate/.  We’re pleased to offer both short sleeve and long sleeve youth and adult sizes, as well as a Ladies V-Neck.  Shirt orders must be placed by Friday, September 20th.  Reminder: all Sylvan Park students will receive 1 free Fun Run t-shirt the day of the event (October 4th).

This is the only time this year we will be asking for financial donations for 2019/20.  We are no longer selling City Savers to raise money, and our new Fun Run Campaign is the old INVEST Campaign (Fun Run = INVEST).  Encourage your student to participate and please share our donation link with family and friends!

The classroom in each grade level that collects the most money this week will receive a popsicle party during lunch or recess this Friday, September 13th.

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 wemslax@gmail.com for any questions and registration links.  And spread the word!
