What are Donut Socials at SVMS?

A celebration of success for academics

Donut Socials are one form of celebration for academic success at Star Valley Middle School. SVMS believes in promoting student academic success on a regular basis. Forms of celebration include: donut socials, dances and warrior clan activities, just to name a few. As a school, we feel it is important to have at least one of these celebrations monthly. Students are encouraged and required to keep their grades in the C range or higher to be able to participate in these celebrations. On January 2nd, a new semester begins. This means a clean start for everyone. The first celebration for 2020 will take place on January 30 with donuts during RIF. You "donut" want to miss it!!
