Dear SLVE Families,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! We would like to introduce you to the Bobcat Club, the parent/teacher organization here at SLVE.  Our main objective is to raise money to support the Art, Music, Science, and Life Lab programs. In addition, we also help raise funds for teacher supplies, sports equipment, classroom technology and campus improvement items such as the new SLVE Water Bottle Filling station!

The following are some event highlights of the 2018-2019 school year:

  • Boosterthon Fun Run: The Fun Run debuted two years ago and was a huge success. We are excited to bring it back and again promote fun, fitness and Bobcat spirit.
  • Square 1 Art: The students will work on an art project that will then be used to create a catalog of personalized products – perfect gift ideas for the holidays!
  • Book Fair:  Last year we are super excited to bring the “Enchanted Forest” to SLVE. The book fair is a great event full of irresistible books of every reading level.  This year the “Artic Adventure” is coming your way.
  • Spring Auction: This is a wonderful adults-only event held at Roaring Camp’s Bret Harte Hall and is one of our biggest fundraiser of the year.

In order for these programs to be successful, we rely on our parent volunteers.  There are many opportunities to help and we appreciate any and all of the time and effort you are able to donate.

Our goal is to raise $100,000 or $150 per student for the 2018-2019 school year. Direct donations are always welcome. Any amount helps us to keep these great programs going. Tax-deductible donations can be made at our website at or by leaving a check in the Bobcat mailbox in the office.

Please join us at our monthly Bobcat Club Metings.  Meetings are held in the SLVE Library at 7:00 PM on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, starting September 10th!
