PTSA Update

PTSA Openings

We are looking for a few good parents to help us run the PTSA next year. The Treasurer position will be opening up and needs to be filled. We are also in need of a media coordinator. This person will be responsible for PTSA social media posting as well as creating and updating the PTSA newsletter. Time commitments for both of these positions are variable and flexible. If you are interested, contact Lori Hillman at

Thoughts and Plans

There was a lot of information shared at the January meeting. Mr. Bruce created an update on the 21st Century learning spaces and some innovative thoughts and plans for the rest of the school year.

Check out the video here.

SVMS PTSA January Update (21st Century Learning Spaces)

The Conferences are coming

It's that time of year again. Parent-Teacher conferences will take place on Monday, February 9th and Tuesday, February 10th from 3:00-7:00. We will be looking for volunteers to donate food for the teacher's meals on these days. If you are interested in helping out please contact Selina at

Books for Sale

We will be having a book fair at the same time that our conferences are taking place. Volunteer help will be needed both on Monday and Tuesday during lunch time and also during conferences. The time slots for conferences will be from 3:00-7:00. If you have ever ran a book fair or have helped out at one your presence would be greatly appreciated! Please contact LeeAnn at if you can help us out!

Box Tops due by February 10th

We had a lot of participation in our last Box Tops contest and collected a total of 4740 Box Tops. A huge thanks goes out to all of those who participated! Our next Box Tops turn in is Tuesday, February 10th.

Spirit Wear

A big thanks goes out to Jennifer Wolz who provided us with the opportunity to have a Winter Spirit wear sale. A portion of those proceeds went right back into the SVMS PTSA!

Restaurant Nights

We continue to have great success with our restaurant nights at Chipotle. Our next event is scheduled for Monday, January 19th from 1:00-7:00. Please feel free to share this date and time with friends and families. The more people we get there the more we benefit SVMS! Just be sure to mention at the time of purchase that you are with South Valley Middle school!


We are looking for a volunteer that would like to come in and photograph some items from the art classes to be uploaded to Artsonia. If this opportunity appeals to you contact Amy Wright at
