Teacher Appreciation Week is May 2nd- May 6th.
Thank you to all of the volunteers who donated blood at the Blood Drive! With your help, SVMS and the American Red Cross received enough donations to save 67 lives!
The 7th grade Science Department held their annual roller coaster project last week to enhance their unit on physical science. Each team of students built a roller coaster made of only cardstock and tape. The goal is to have a marble travel the longest time without stopping. Certain other requirements must also be met. The roller coaster must have a loop, a certain number of turns, and a funnel.
Mr. Jeff Bassett from Discovery Place came recently to share a presentation on Light and Optic Illusions with sixth graders. He used a presentation to review the previously learning vocabulary and concepts of light such as refraction, reflection, and absorption.
The 4th Annual Strides for Success Walk-a-thon is over but the matching funds are still coming in. So far the walk-a-thon has raised almost $31,000! This fantastic outcome is the culmination of many people’s efforts and contributions. The SVMS PTO President Kathy Heintel and her army of tireless volunteers worked months bringing this celebration to fruition. It was a beautiful March day during which the students enjoyed the weather and games. Students enjoyed playing four-square, soccer, dodge ball, basketball, and other activities. They also walked the high school track, spending time with their friends while listening to tunes played by SVHS students.
