Back to School!

Hi everyone! Welcome back! I apologize for not posting anything new for quite some time. This year my goal is to post regularly. My family and I had a wonderful summer with our new baby, Matthew Stewart. He was born April 11, 2019. (I missed all my Sylvan friends while I was on maternity leave!) His big sister and brother adore him and he is a perfect addition to our family. My older son, Peter, will be a 2nd grader this year and my daughter, Ginny, will be a 4th grader. We had the best summer ever, but now we're ready to get the school year started!

I am so excited for this year at Sylvan and all of the cool new things we are doing! We will be having recess before lunch this year, which other schools have piloted and had great success. We will be starting Healthy Minds Healthy Bodies with Miss Ash, which will help us practice focus and calming skills. We will also be focusing on our Bobcat Pride with Mrs. George as she is our new Student Affairs Coordinator and has lots of great ideas for our school. All of this, plus things like our traditional SPO Family Picnic and and Booster Movie Night - I can't wait for the year to get started!

I saw this post (below) on Facebook recently. A great message as we return to school.
