Welcome to Sylvan Avenue Elementary School, a wonderful place to learn
and grow! We are a very proud K-5 elementary school with 400 students.
Our school prides itself on focusing on the needs of each student and
making the school experience one that will inspire them to become
life-long learners. We know the importance of making school a place
where children want to come to learn about their favorite subjects,
friends, community, and world. Our dedicated and talented teachers and
support staff strive to make each day at our school one that challenges
students to learn something new; encourages them to feel good about
their efforts; and helps them to realize just how important each is to
our school family.
Sylvan Avenue has a very active PTA that generously supports our
instructional program. Throughout the year, our PTA brings us many
terrific learning experiences through the Arts-in-Education Program. In
addition, they support other school functions by funding “extras” that
make the events very special and memorable. They hold Family Fun Nights
several times a year—a great way for families to socialize, have fun,
and build community spirit.
The entire Sylvan Avenue staff is extremely dedicated to the success of
every child. We recognize the value and importance of the home-school
connection and encourage parents to play an active role in the education
of their child. We welcome the opportunity to work with you to
strengthen the home-school partnership and to make a difference in the
academic, social, and emotional growth of our children.
