Spirit Week will be March 19-23. Monday is Pajama Day, Tuesday is Twin Tuesday, Wednesday is Wacky Wednesday, Thursday is Tie Day/Camo Day, and Friday is Color War Day. On Friday, 6th graders are encouraged to wear blue, 7th graders will wear orange and 8th graders will wear pink.
On Friday, March 23rd during school hours, we will celebrate our 6th Annual Walk-a-Thon. The purpose for this fundraiser is to help raise funds for our school, including our greenhouse, a new projector/sound system for the gym, and new water fountains. All donations will be invested directly back into Sun Valley Middle School. Last year's donations helped to fund the walking track behind the middle school. Our middle school families were able to raise over $30,000 last year. This was remarkable and we are aiming for equal success this year with $30,000 as the goal once again. To participate in this fun-filled day of activities requires a minimum donation of $20.00. The Walk-a-thon challenges all students to bring in a donation of at least $25.00. With the donation of $20.00 each student gets to enjoy a day filled with fun, a full dress-down day, a chance to hang out with friends while walking the track at SVHS, and music by a live DJ. There will also be games, entertainment and Haydini the magician at the middle school.
Congratulations to the following students for participating in the Union County Honor Band Clinic this weekend at Porter Ridge High School: Felicity Alamos, Mary Brenna Burgess, Abigail Duke, Katja Haarstick, James Merritt, Atish Pillai, Jordan Riggins, Jenny Taldo, and Draven Wright.
