Digital Citizenship and Cell Phones at SVMS

SVMS cell phone policy will include a “Digital Citizenship” course, a program designed to teach kids the skills they need to be safe and smart on digital devices. The classes began the first week of school and when complete each child will receive a sticker that verifies they have learned the skills to be a responsible digital device user. At this point, they will be “certified” to use a personal device at school during approved times and in designated areas. Digital Citizenship means being smart, alert, strong, kind, and brave. Parents who are involved with the online/phone safety conversation at home are essential to our efforts to help all students at the school learn the lessons of safety and etiquette in the digital world. Here are some areas to focus on with your child.

  • Protect themselves from digital threats, including bullies and scams

  • Get smart about sharing: what, when and with whom

  • Be kind and respectful toward other people especially on social media

  • Ask for help from a parent or other adult with tricky situations

National School Lunch Week October 9-13, 2023

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) serves nearly 30 million children every school day. President John F. Kennedy created National School Lunch Week (NSLW) in 1962 to promote the importance of a healthy school lunch in a child’s life and the impact it has inside and outside of the classroom.

Watch for info on how to earn a chance to win a color changing tumbler (5 available) just by eating school lunch that week!

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 Monday, October 30th for 7th grade and November 13th for 8th grade.  Students will be going to Pinedale’s Recreation Center.
