What is Stars at SVMS?

Students and Teachers Accepting Responsibility to Succeed

Stars is a class that all students at SVMS are assigned. Stars teachers serve as mentors — getting to know students on a personal level, monitoring grades, providing service opportunities, learning social skills and teaching students about CLASSY.

Parent Teacher Conference will be held November 16th & 17th.


November SV Middle School Parent Teacher Conferences

 Your child’s STARS teacher will reach out to you the week of November 8th via email or phone to do a preliminary check in. If you need to speak to any of your child’s teachers individually, please let your STARS teacher know at that time.

If an individual conference with the teacher is necessary, you have two options to choose from:

Option 1

You can meet with them via Zoom on November 16th from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm utilizing their individual zoom link. No appointment is necessary for the Zoom meetings.

Links will be provided on the SVMS home page prior to Parent Teacher Conferences.

Option 2

If you would like to meet in person with your child’s teacher, you can do that by scheduling an appointment with them for the date of November 17th between the hours of 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm.

To schedule a live meeting please email the individual teacher with whom you would like to meet. You can access their emails by clicking on the following blue link. Email Link

If you have any questions about this process, you can reach the middle school at 307-885-5208.

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.
