SVMS PTSA Update

SVMS Supporters are the BEST!

Thank you for all the friends and families that supported the SVMS Eagles this year. Your efforts are noticed and very much appreciated!

PTSA Meeting Dates

All PTSA meeting dates, meeting minutes, and upcoming PTSA events will be listed at www.memberplanet.com/svmsptsa. Memberplanet is a website that we have been using this year to promote some of our fundraisers and to streamline the PTSA membership process. Take a look around and see what you think!

SVMS Spirit wear

For SVMS spirit wear we use spiritpack.com. We have had great success with this company and earned some fundraising money as well. Please keep in mind when you order spirit wear for your child that students tend to have a growth spurt in middle school. So size up!

The Future of Fundraisers

We offer a variety of fundraisers in an effort to reach out to all of our families at SVMS. Traditionally, we offer our magazine fundraiser first as it will give us the most profit and allow us to have a healthy amount to start towards our grade level field trips.


Magazine Fundraiser: We earn back around 40% of our profit from this company and can continue to take orders (and will continue to receive contributions from this company) throughout the school year. This fundraiser is user friendly as it can be shared online. If you would like to use this fundraiser throughout the year be sure to save the website www.gaschoolstore.com. Our school number is 2608941.


Invest in Your Eagles: PTSA donations are also accepted throughout the year. You may write a check directly to the PTSA. 100% of these donations will go into the PTSA fund so that it can be devoted back to the students.


Amazon Smile: You can donate through amazon.com, too. By going to smile.amazon.com and designating PTA Missouri Congress South Valley Middle School, PTSA a portion of all of your purchases will come back to SVMS. You can even make it the home page that your web browser goes to. Every little bit helps!


Penrod's Mums Fundraiser: This is a new fundraiser this year. We will be selling a variety of colors of mums in 1.5 gallon tubs for $10 at our Back to School BBQ on Tuesday, September 13th.


Pendrod's Poinsettia Fundraiser: This one is new this year and was sent home at the end of November. We had anywhere from 40%-50% profit on these. PTSA will be looking for help with the organization and distribution of this fundraiser.


Major Saver Cards: These cards include discounts on restaurant and businesses throughout the district. They are sold by the district -- not through the PTSA. However, 50% of their profit goes directly back to SVMS and 100% of the profit goes back to the Liberty School district. These cards usually come home to students during December.


Pendrod's Spring Flower Sale: Once again, this is a new fundraiser for SVMS. We will also have a 40%-50% profit on this sale. The sizes and variety of flowers will be communicated to families in early spring. We will also need a decent amount of parent volunteers to help us organize this endeavor!


Restaurant Nights: We are currently in negotiations with several local restaurants in the area to confirm some restaurant nights. We usually have anywhere from a 15%-50% return in profit from these restaurants as they are very eager to give back to the community. If you have a restaurant that you would like to see us frequent please email southvalleymiddleschoolptsa@gmail.com.

PTSA Services


There are some services that we provide to the school that make little to no profit for the PTSA. We provide them to make SVMS families to help promote community among our Eagles.


Back to School BBQ: Our Back to School BBQ is the most attended service we provide. Red Robin provides meals for sale, parents donate desserts, and great football is watched. Thanks for all the donations and participation in making this the best BBQ, yet!


Book Fair: We provided this during the Back to School BBQ. All had a great time and there were many great books bought. Feedback was very favorable for providing this opportunity at a time when parents and families were able to take their time to browse and look for good books.


Box Tops: SVMS will have two school wide collections of Box Tops. Box Tops are worth 10 cents per piece which can really add up in big groups! More information will be communicated about this during the school year.


Culver's with the Eagles: If you have a kiddo who is in choir, band, or orchestra we have arranged for Culver's to arrive after the concerts and to offer a cup of ice cream with a topping for around $3. The really important item to remember about these events is that Culver's accepts CASH, ONLY. It is a great way to visit with other families and enjoy some great dessert without having to leave the school!


Spring Fling: During the last week of school, PTSA partners with the staff to provide an event full of fun for the students. Games are played, kids can do yearbook signings, and a snack and dance provided. This is a great way to wind up the school year for the students!
