CLASSY - a continued focus at SVMS

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

S = Service  -- one pillar of CLASSY is Service. Studies have shown that youth who participate in regular service activities are better prepared for life and are happier people.

The following information is an excerpt from Children's MD, Behavior & Development, January 29, 2015.

Teenagers are not only an extremely valuable resource of energy, good will and creativity, but also the key to our future. In a culture that is so wrapped around ‘wants’ and ‘achievements,’ it is easy for our teenagers to grow up without a sense of gratitude for what they have and empathy for the needs of the less fortunate around them. Volunteering in community service projects and helping others can be very fulfilling, and if you can show your teen how enriching it is from a young age, they’ll start to make an association between helping someone else and their own joy.Teen volunteering has been on a steady rise since the 1980s. Research has shown that teens who engage in community service are more responsible with higher self-esteem and resilience. Volunteering helps the teens gain new skills necessary for the job market such as leadership, communication skills, dependability, time management, and decision making. Teens who volunteer perform better at school and also build a stronger resume for college and scholarship applications.

What is Warrior Clan?

Warrior Clan is a rewards program for SVMS students based upon academic achievement and behavior. Each quarter students are rewarded with a school-wide activity to celebrate their hard work and achievement. Students work directly with their Stars teachers on a weekly basis as they progress towards achieving their Warrior Clan reward. Students also have the opportunity to regain points lost along the way. While teachers are there to help and support, this program is designed as a student motivator and helping students take responsibility for their success.

Quarter 1 Warrior Clan activities will be Wednesday, November 4th for 7th graders and Thursday, November 5th for 8th graders. Students will be enjoying movies and bowling for 1/2 day and then participating in community service projects for the other 1/2 day.
