SV Week 30 Update

Happy Spring Break!

What a fantastic end to 3rd quarter and start of Spring Break! We are so grateful to all of our Vipers for such a great job at this year's Boosterthon. Wednesday was quite a celebration for the week and we had a great turnout for our Fun and Color Runs. Thank you all for contributing, sharing, and for coming you to celebrate and partake in the fun. We met our goal of $40,000 and are going to have over $42,000 raised for our kids and campus! Thanks to all of your support, I am typing this s'more from the roof of Sierra Verde as the reward for meeting our goal! I have spent the day working from various roofs across campus and cheering on the K-3 Vipers at field day.


We have enjoyed being able to have all of our families back on campus for field days and boosterthons this week after our Covid hiatus the last two years. We really appreciate having you all back on campus to come support our kids. As we head into Spring Break, we wish you all a restful and relaxing week off, and we will be ready to welcome everyone back for fourth quarter on March 21.
