Family Room

The Family Room will operate on Tuesdays from 9-11am

when school is in session for the 2017-18 school year.


The Family Room is located in the S-VE Elementary building.

Please check the website calendar to confirm the Family Room schedule.


What is the Family Room?

The Elementary School houses a “Family Room” program where parents and guardians of birth through school aged children in the S-VE School District can bring and stay with your child for interactive play-time, craft, snack and story once a week. This program is designed to assist you and your child in becoming familiar with the district, as well as help your child in the transition of entering school.

This opportunity has allowed children to meet new friends that have become their classmates in Pre-K, introduced children to the structure of school and assisted parents and guardians in becoming comfortable with our district.

The Family Room will be open on Tuesday mornings from 9-11am when school is in session. We look forward to meeting new friends this year! For further information, elementary school office at 589-7110.


How can my child benefit from the Family Room?
