Check out everything happening at Back-to-School night TONIGHT: 
Reminder: ALL bus riding families must attend a bus rider safety meeting in the cafeteria that evening. Mr. Phillips will give a presentation in the cafeteria at 6:00, 6:30 and 7:00.  
To ensure families can visit multiple classrooms and catch Mr. Phillips in the cafeteria, each teacher will give the same presentation at 6:00, 6:30 and 7:00.  

This is a great opportunity to pick up SVA spirit gear! Staff will be on hand selling *NEW* black tees, along with the usual green and grey tees, stickers and more.  

Please plan to attend without your children tonight, if possible. If that is not an option for your family, please go ahead and bring them along. It is important to us that all families are in attendance at this event.  
A Friendly Reminder from the Front Office

If you have not yet submitted your emergency cards and other required documents from the first day of school packet, YOU'RE LATE! 

Please return ALL forms from the packet to your child's teacher ASAP. 

All required paperwork was sent home with your child on the first day of school. 

Please call Mrs. George at the front desk if you need duplicate forms. 559.622.3236
