Grade Level Tshirts are Here and They're Amazing!
We are selling the grade level tshirts again this year. Shirts are a 50/50 blend and are from Cumpy's so they fit like the shirts from our Flash sale this spring. All orders will be online. We will be selling in two sessions. To receive your shirt to pick up by registration all orders must be in by July 22nd. If you want a shirt after that you may still order one, but it will be sent home with your student.
All sales are final and we will not be able to do exchanges as we will only order the amount that are ordered online.
Students will use these shirts to wear for assemblies and for school outings. Take a look and see what you think!
Second Annual SVMS Color Run is September 19th! Sign up by September 4th!
Mark your calendars for September 19th. That will be the day that the SVMS Eagles will get Color Run CRAZY! The run will start at 12:30 and conclude at 2:00. We will have Snowie KC there to purchase (snow cones run $5, $4, $3 respectively), dollar concessions and LOTS of fun! Be sure that you sign up in time to be a part of the fun!

Fundraising. It's how we support our Eagles.
We have several different elementary schools that feed into SVMS that come from several very successful fundraising strategies. So we here at the SVMS PTSA think we need to offer a variety of fundraising opportunities to help fit your family the best.
We will be rolling out our Invest In Your Eagle again this year. If you would love to give a donation to the SVMS PTSA and be done-this is a fundraiser for you! We will have paper copies of this fundraiser at registration or you can find it online as well.
If you like to physically sell something we have the fundraiser for you, too. This year we will be selling World's Finest Chocolate by the box. All chocolate is $1 and will come in the flavors of milk chocolate, caramel, crisp, dark chocolate and almond. We will receive a 50% profit from each chocolate bar we sell. Kick off for this event is August 20th when students will bring a permission form home to allow them to sell the box of chocolate. Be on the look out!
If you like a bit more participation to your fundraiser the Color Run is it. This will be the second year we will be utilizing the Color Run and it is tons of fun. The Color Run will take place September 19 and can be signed up for online from now until Tuesday, September 4th. For $20 you will get a tshirt, a bib, a packet of color, and the opportunity to participate in a Color Run during school hours! What could be more fun?
We will also post a host of restaurant and event nights for the school. Generally, we get a 15%-20% profit back from these opportunities.
Please pick the fundraiser or way to support your Eagle. We do not in any way expect participation in all, but do love to give a variety of opportunities so that all families can find a good fit!
