Did You Know?

SVMS NEWS (a new publication)

A small group of ambitious students have decided to create a school newspaper for their peers. The project is just getting underway but will feature games, activities, talents, news and events at SVMS. Primary distribution will be digital, with paper for those who prefer the traditional method of reading the news. They have received coaching from SVI News staff and have a meeting with the staff of Mountain Star at SVHS. Stay tuned for future publications!!!

District Spelling Bee - Grades 6-8

The District Spelling Bee for grades 6-8 will be held on February 5th, 9am, at the District Office Building on Jefferson Street in Afton.

Warrior Clan Ski Trips

Students who qualified for warrior clan during the 2nd Quarter will get to go skiing this month.  7th grade qualifiers will go to Pine Creek Ski Area on February 13th, and 8th grade qualifiers will go to Beaver on February 19th. Students who qualified but don't want to go skiing have a school excused absence that day. (Ah a day of rest!)

Prevention Needs Assessment (PNA) Survey

The PNA Survey will be given to 8th graders on February 11.  This is a youth substance use survey.  It measures many different attitudes, beliefs, and perceptions that have been shown to influence substance use and problem behavior.  This survey is voluntary and anonymous.  A 'Parent Consent' form will be given to 8th graders in STARS classes.  If parent/guardian DOES NOT want you to participate, you need to bring the completed and signed form back to school by the morning of Feb 11.  The survey can be viewed at http://www.pnasurvey.org or a hard copy will be available in the SVMS office.
