November PTSA Update


We're so Thankful!

The SVMS PTSA is thankful for a couple of very good reasons this school year.

We are thankful for our amazing parents who support us through teacher's conferences, the Color Run, and through our various volunteer opportunities that come up.

We are thankful for our dedicated and devoted staff and administration who make our experience at SVMS the best. They have offered support to our students and education to the families.

If you have a staff member or administration member that has gone that extra mile or that you would like to thank please feel free to drop them a thankful card sometime in the month of November. We'll have a can available for thank you card drop off on Mrs. Kroge's old desk. Your kiddo can drop in in the can as they go by and we'll be sure that it makes it to the right person. A word of thanks goes a long way!

Spirit Wear Sale open until November 26th

We have a second Spirit Wear sale up and running. A huge thanks go out to Amy Reames for organizing, managing, and delivering both of these spirit wear orders!

This sale brings back a lot of popular styles while adding a nice jacket to the mix. Take a look and see which piece suits you best!

If you need to pick your order up privately you must send an email to Otherwise all orders will be sent home with their student. Delivery of the spirit items will occur before the Winter break!

Poinsettia Sale is On! Ending December 5th.

Our annual Penrod's Poinsettia sale is officially available. We have been doing this sale with Penrod's for several years and they always deliver the biggest, most beautiful plants you will see. The 10 inch is exceptionally amazing and a popular seller.

This year we will be selling a 10 inch poinsettia in the colors of red, white or pink for $25 a piece. We will also be selling a smaller 6.5 inch poinsettia in the colors of red, white, or pink colors for $10.

We will be offering both online and paper sales this time around.

Pick up will be the day of December 12th. Please email if you can not make pick up during the day so that we can coordinate a pick up time.

Next Box Tops Submission Ends December 15th

We made over $200 on the last Box Tops submission and our next contest is in swing. We will continue to collect Box Tops until December 15th for our second submission.

Starting this submission please add your Box Tops to the added worksheet or even to a plain piece of paper if that is easier. Having them on paper is easy to organize and inspect especially for expired or the ones not properly cut to show codes and dates.

Link to boxtop pages as a suggestion to use or just a blank piece of paper to stick them on is easier =

The top five students will receive a prize from the PTSA closet.

Thank you for all your Box Tops. Every little bit truly helps!
