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 3rd, a new semester begins. This means a clean start for everyone.

CLASSY – a continued focus at SVMS


Count Your Blessings – Look for the Good – Acts of Kindness – Self-Motivation – Service – You are Valued


L = Look for the Good  — Each day students are asked to “Look for the Good” around them and record it in their CLASSY journal. Martin Walsh said, “When you look for the good in others, you discover the best in yourself.”
