SV Week 35 Update

1 Month to Go

Our Vipers have been hard at work this week and back into their routines after state testing. We wanted to thank all of our SV Volunteers who have donated so much of their time, effort, resources, and energy to our campus and community as we celebrate Volunteer Appreciation Week. We also thank all of you for helping out our PTSO fundraiser at Babbo's on Wednesday, we had a great turnout and were able to bring home more money for our fantastic PTSO.


Congratulations to our Baseball and Softball teams for winning their first playoff games this past week! Next week the boys will host Canyon Springs in the Semi-Final at 4:30 pm. Our girls will travel to Terramar to take on the Titans in their semifinal playoff game. Good luck to all our coaches and student-athletes!


As we approach the last 4 weeks of the school year, we want to make sure everyone is able to attend our STEAM Night Showcase of student work on Wednesday, May 4 from 5:00-7:00 pm. All our grades will have STEAM on display and it will be a student-centered celebration of hard work, grit, and engineering that all our vipers have demonstrated in 21-22. We are very excited to have this capstone event back at SV after a two year hiatus.

PTSO Movie Night Next Friday @ SV!

PTSO Needs Your Help!

Just a friendly reminder that Teacher Appreciation Week is right around the corner. It’s the week of May 2nd – May 6th. We have had many parents/families come forward to volunteer to make signs for the windows of the 50+ wonderful teachers we have here at Sierra Verde! We are so grateful to those who have signed up to help out. We could still use several more volunteers to help out, if you can.


Parents can get posterboard in any dimension or size that you’d like from the store, or there’s rolls of banner paper, die cut machines, cutting boards and a copier that are available for use at school starting April 25th, once testing is finished. Parents are welcome to come into the workroom and use any of the equipment and make posters. We ask that you please don’t pick up materials during AM drop-off or PM pick-up because it is too busy in the office during those times. You may work at home at your own convenience on the signs as well.

On Sunday, May 1st the school campus will be open from 9AM – Noon to come and help hang up the signs on the teachers’ windows.

If you are able to help us out, please let us know as soon as possible!

Thank you so much for your support!

Please contact us by email: sierraverdeptso@gmail.com

Or on social media: https://www.facebook.com/svptso/

You will then be connected to Justine Huh, who is the Coordinator of this project. She will connect you to 1 or more teachers who have not already been spoken for.

We have a new batch of new era hats available for Pre-Order on our website. The hats are available in 3 sizes 1. Small/Medium 2. Medium/Large 3. Large/XL . The caps are flex fit which allows them to fit a range of sizes. You can pre-order them on our website for $25, and they will be $30 after the pre-order window.

There will also be a one size child/youth all black cap available for purchase as well that will fit our youngest Vipers better than the adult 39thirty. Please be sure to order the correct size on our website as we will not have extra hats on hand to exchange sizes.

PBIS Rewards Donations

Do you have any gently used stuffed animals or plush you no longer need? We are currently in need of stuffed animals for our PBIS Rewards store. These items are a huge hit in our store, and kids are loving to spend their PBIS Reward money on these and many other items in our store. If you have any gently used toys or unused small denomination gift cards, we could put them to great use in our shop.


We are also currently in need of brown paper bags/lunch sacks to organized and deliver our PBIS prizes. If you would like to contribute, we would welcome any donations of these brown paper bags. You can drop off any prizes or rewards at our front office.
