Here's the form: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B01FSM1nh-RccVdWSW4wdkZaR2s/view?usp=sharing

Pick your fundraiser!

South Valley will have over 800 students in our school next year. With that many students and families a variety of fundraisers are needed to meet everyone's personal need. Feel free to pick the fundraiser that fits your familiy's lifestyle best!

Invest In Your Eagle: If you prefer a straight donation to the PTSA to support your Eagle and the staff at South Valley this fundraiser is for you! Pick a form up at the PTSA table at registration or print this off and send it in to the office with your student. 100% of the PTSA funds go straight back to SVMS with the majority of the funds covering the field trips!


Magazine Sales: If you are the family that enjoys selling merchandise SVMS will once again be selling magazines and cups starting the last week in August. Magazines can be sold both by direct mailers to friends and family as well as online. The great thing about this fundraiser is that it can be sold all year long so we receive checks from them almost every month. We will start sales August 31st and they will run through September 11th.

The online address is www.gaschoolstore.com and we are number 2608941.

Restaurant Nights: We will have several restaurant nights this year. Each restaurant will give us a portion of the proceeds to their restaurant. Our very first restaurant night of the year is Chipotle on August 22nd! Chipotle give us 50% of the profit from those guests that mention that they are buying their food in support of SVMS so it is one of our biggest restaurant nights. Let your friends, family, and neighbors know that they can support SVMS with their meals as well. The other restaurant nights are as follows:

September 21st: Dairy Queen 4:00-8:00

October 26th: Culver's 5:00-8:00

November 3rd: Planet Sub

More restaurant nights to come as the school year proceeds!

SVMS Color Run October 18th

This is the first year that SVMS will have a Color Run for our Eagles. The run will take place during school hours and will be open only to our SVMS students. For $20 you will receive an entry into the run, a tshirt, and a pack of powdered color. The students will take a couple of laps around the school where they will be sprayed with liquid color and will be allowed to throw their packets of powdered color up in the air at the conclusion of the race. This sounds like it will be a very fun opportunity for our Eagles and we are excited to try it this year.

Here is the sign up: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/svms-eagles-my-school-color-run-tickets-35764627965?aff=es2

And a cool video that gives your student an idea of what to look forward to! https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9BN3rHsClNhdFI0RFB1bjUyQkE/view?ts=5967abfe

We know that not every kind of fundraiser fits every family at SVMS so please feel free to pick the one that fits your family best!

Battle for the Paddles

We have events scheduled with the other middle schools in the area that are called Battle for the Paddle events. There is one for each athletic event that SVMS participates in. SVMS and Heritage band together to become the LN8 Eagles while LMS and Discovery become the Blue Jays. These events are always a lot of fun and a nice way for our Eagles to see some faces that they will go to high school with.

We will have an after school activity planned for the students that want to stay over for these game from 2:30-4:00 on each event date. We will have poster board and markers for those that want to decorate posters for the event and will also have board games available.

The fall Battle for the Paddle dates are as follows:

October 6th: Battle for the Paddle, cross country. Eagles are home team. Meet will be held on SVMS/DMS grounds starting at 4:00.

October 10: Battle for the Paddle, football. Eagles are away team. Game played at SVMS/DMS football field starting at 4:00.

October 11: Battle for the Paddle, volleyball. Eagles are home team. Game to be played on SVMS campus starting at 4:00.

If you would like to help out during the activity times (and we really, really need you!) come by our first PTSA meeting and let us know or email ljc3162@hotmail.com!
