End of October Update

Best October, ever, for SVMS

Color Runs, and Zombie plays, and Fall Mixers-oh my! We have had a ton of fun in October so far, but still have a lot of events to go! See below!

A huge THANK YOU to all parents and staff that helped to make the Color Run a Success!

It was a beautiful day for a Color Run last Wednesday and we took full advantage of it. Our first Color Run went very well and we are already thinking of great ideas for next year.

A huge thank you to the Mrs. Mullen, Mrs. Wheatley, Ms. Lester and Mrs. Lewis. If you see them be sure to tell them how much fun it was and how much we appreciate the opportunity.

And thank you for all the parents that came out to cheer on our runners and help them stay on the correct path, to haul tables, and water, and cups and who generally made this event the success it was!

If you have pictures of the event that haven't made it into our google photos please feel free to download them for all to see at this link: https://photos.app.goo.gl/GDIAZUOdeNe1CBOL2

Culver's Night, 10/26 5:00-9:00

Tonight's the night. SVMS will take on the Culver's in Liberty and get a portion of their profits from 5:00-9:00. The owners have graciously allowed us to extend our fundraiser an hour so that those wishing to see the play can come and enjoy Culver's after!

The flavor of the day is either Pumpkin Pecan (via website) or Pumpkin Pie (via actual sign). We hope to see you there!
