  • PBIS is having their first event of the school year!  They had to be creative due to our current situation, but they came up with a fun event for all! 

    They are having a Cinderblock Painting Party!  The event will be held in the courtyard outside the media center on Saturday, December 12th, from 1:00-2:30 students can come to SVMS with their friends (and stay 6 feet apart of course) and spend time listening to music and painting a cinderblock for our courtyard.  This is a great opportunity for students to leave a long-lasting impression on SVMS! 

    There will be a $10 charge to attend which is paid online on our SVMS webpage under quick links, then online payments.  Please bring design ideas  for approval on the day of the party – Saturday, December 12th.  Paint and paint brushes will be provided!

    Please email Mrs. Nadata with any questions.

    Going Green in the Greenhouse

    We have a fully functional greenhouse that we want to integrate into our science classes and greenhouse club to teach, hands on, botany and horticulture. The campaign would include start up costs of resources to begin planting. We also need cleaning and set up supplies to be able to make this project a reality for our students.
