Tuesday is a full dress-down day for all students.
SVMS NEEDS a volunteer who can take initiative to organize a clothing closet in our school for students in need of emergency clothing. Set up and periodic maintenance throughout the year required. This is meaningful work for someone who cares about children and can work independently. Please click HERE for more information.
Picture Re-takes will be Thursday, Oct. 27th. If any students were absent they can stop by front office for picture form. If students are unsatisfied with portraits they need to RETURN original photos. There is no need for new form for re-takes.
SVMS wishes to thank all who contributed the Heifer International campaign. With the efforts of Sun Valley families, SVMS was able to raise $1400 for this worthwhile agency. These funds will be used to help end hunger and poverty. With the funds, SVMS gave two knitter baskets, two hope baskets, and two gardener gift baskets. Each of the Knitter’s Baskets include four animals - a llama, an alpaca, a sheep, and an Angora rabbit. The recipients are given instructions on the proper care and feeding of the animals. From this gift basket, families are able to get milk from the llama and sheep and use the wool to help keep them warm. Families are also able to supplement their income from the sale of clothing and blankets made from the wool.
English teacher Mrs. Cyndy Betts has had a positive influence on thousands of students lives without ever teaching them or even meeting them. But she taught and touched one student, Cathy Hess-Grove, who, in turn, has touched thousands of young lives who have passed through the doors of SVMS. Mrs. Hess-Grove was recently recognized for her work by being selected as Teacher of the Year by her peers.
