SVMS September Update

It's not quite September, but it's close!

September is a super busy month for SVMS so I thought we'd get the Smore out early to get the dates on the calendar for everyone.


As always, please feel free to email svmsptsaeagles@gmail.com for questions, concerns or comments!

Where has our money gone so far?

The PTSA has been hard at work for SVMS. Four painted phrases went up in various student bathrooms as well as a number of vinyl cling sayings. We plan to continue to add these spaces as the school year contines.


We also had some canvases made for the teachers for their personal spaces to remind them how valuable they are to their Eagle families!


We invested in some books for your SVMS Eagles for a cool new opportunity for our students. Keep your ears open about an upcoming book competition. It sounds like fun!


We will continue to put the majority of our funds away for the various field trips that our students will be taking this year. We are hopeful to send our 8th grade students on a fall trip this year. Watch your newsletters for more information!

Color Run-Get your ticket before September 4th!

The Color Run is just around the corner and is an exclusive run for just our Eagle students. Join us for the second annual Color Run-it's going to be a blast!


The last day to buy a ticket will be Friday, September 4th. All tickets include a shirt, a color packet, and a whole lot of fun!

We are planning on having $1 concessions again this year which will include pop, candy, and chips. We also invited Snowie KC to come sell their cones which run $5, $4, and $3 and are inviting a new food truck to come and join in the fun! Cowtown mini donuts will serve up fun mini donuts which will run in the $5 range.

Got Chocolate? Due date September 6th!

If you have a SVMS Eagle that answer might be YES! We wanted to send some updates and clarifications to the Chocolate fundraising.


All boxes of chocolate that are checked out and opened are the responsibility of their seller. We can not accept back opened boxes of chocolate.


The last date to turn in your chocolate funds is September 6th.


Any SVMS Eagle who has paid for their chocolate boxes IN FULL by Friday, August 31st will be allowed to pick a prize out of the PTSA prize closet that day.


We are accepting many forms of payment. We will always take cash and check. If you prefer an online option we also have https://squareup.com/store/svms-ptsa. Venmo is also an option and you can find us at @South-Valley. Our pic should be the same pic as our facebook page.


Thank you again to those that are choosing to sell chocolate for our school. I have to say that we have some of the most polite and ambitious chocolate sellers around!

Grade Level Tshirts-Orders due September 14th! Delivery in October.

If you were one that still wants to order a grade level shirt and haven't yet you still have time! All grade level shirts will be collected and the site will be shut down on September 14th.


If you have ordered a shirt any time after July 22nd those shirts will be delivered in October. Thank you all for your patience as we try to allow everyone an opportunity to order their shirts before we shut down the store. We can give you a more updated delivery date as soon as we get the second order in.


Here's the shirt link: https://squareup.com/store/svms-ptsa


As of now we do not have any plans for any further spirit wear orders for the year.


As always if you have a question about your order please email svmsptsaeagles@gmail.com. Thank you!

Are you ready for some football? Back to School BBQ at first home football game, September 5th!

The Back to School BBQ is just around the corner. Bring your family out to root on the Eagles at their first home game against Kearney starting at 4:00. We have invited two food trucks to help you with your dining needs that night.


Mudhole BBQ will be there to serve up their best BBQ. Their entrees range around $10. They also have a variety of appetizers they offer.


Snowie KC will be there serving up their famous cones. Prices range from $5, $4, and $3 and they have a ton of yummy flavors.


Both trucks accept both cash and plastic.


Hope to see you there!
