Spring Valley Winter Days 2020 “The Giving Tree”

Winter Days is a Spring Valley tradition dating back to 1984 and is the largest annual school-wide community outreach project at Spring Valley High School. The project consists of various charitable drives that benefit a number of local community agencies. Committee chairs survey agency needs, set collection goals, and begins the challenge of coordinating this large effort.

The theme this year is “The Giving Tree” as Spring Valley celebrates our 36th Winter Days and 36 years of giving back to our community. The theme represents the intention of giving.

Although we may collect physical items to donate, what we really hope to give to others through Winter Days is the knowledge that they are recognized and remembered during the holiday season. We want to highlight that the gift worth giving is the hope and love that accompanies the physical donations.

Help Grant A Kid’s Wish Today

Would you like to help make a child’s wish come true? This holiday season, Discovery senior Aisha Siddique is raising money for the Make-A-Wish foundation! In the past, her work in community service and fundraising has included participation in the school’s Key Club, raising money for the UNRWA Gather for Gaza Fund, working as a junior volunteer at Prisma Health, and making masks for health professionals and patients at the Prisma Health Children’s Hospital. 


During her freshman and sophomore years, she worked in multiple areas taking care of patients with different illnesses. The atmosphere in a hospital setting is always a bit grim, but it was completely different in the children’s hospital. She found myself entranced by the cheerful environment despite medical professionals trying their best to cure children of their life-threatening diseases. During her time there, she was fortunate enough to work in the cancer division of the Children’s hospital, spend time with those suffering from these illnesses, build friendships that will last a life-time, and learn important lessons along the way. The strength of the children suffering from these diseases is unimaginable and inspiring, and they have inspired Aisha to want to do more for them. Now, Aisha would like to do her part and help bring a bit of joy and happiness to them during the holiday season. Especially with COVID-19 impacting the course of this year, it is now more important than ever to give back to her community and the amazing people she has met along the way. Please consider donating at tinyurl.com/aisha-wd or scan the QR code on the flyer attached! Happy Holidays to all fellow Vikings!

Help the National Honor Society and Winter Days with This Garbage Can of a T-shirt

Front Back

You may remember that back in March, remote  learning didn’t exist and the National Honor Society was a week away from our Trashion Show that we put on every year to raise money for local food banks.  Literally, the day that school was cancelled, our order of 130 t-shirts arrived at Spring Valley.  Fortunately, they say “Trashion Show 2020” so we can still sell them for another six weeks in celebration of our remote/virtual Trashion Show.

SV TRASHION SHOW 2020

Originally, NHS was going to donate the profits from the sale of the t-shirts to the Souper Bowl of Caring.  Now, we will donate all proceeds from the sale, including our cost, to Winter Days.  We know that there are many people in need and the usual Winter Days can drive will be more challenging than ever.  Please consider buying a t-shirt and helping Winter Days reach their goals this year. 

We will also be selling Trashion Show mugs for $10 to support Winter Days. The mugs are made by students in our employability class, a class that prepares students with exceptional needs for life after high school.  The name of their company is Dragon Designs and they can help you with your design needs.  By purchasing from them, you are helping our students meet their 350 hour requirement to earn their employability certificate. 

If you think our logo is too “trashy,” you may also donate directly to our cause by simply donating in $10 increments. If we sell out of the t-shirts in your size we will refund your money or give you the option of being part of a reorder if there is enough interest.  Thank you in advance for your support.  You may order through Parent Portal.  If you don’t have a Parent Portal account, ask a member of NHS and they can order for you.

Adrienne Zweimiller Receives STEM Research Grant from Society for Science & the Public

December 15, 2020–Spring Valley is pleased to announce that Adrienne Zweimiller is one of 100 middle and high school science educators throughout the country who has been selected to receive a STEM research kit to help students conduct scientific research outside the classroom. She will be able to choose from a selection of 13 high-quality kits amounting to $1,000. These kits are distributed through the Society for Science & the Public’s STEM Research Grants program.

“In the last 10 months, STEM teachers have had to completely overhaul learning. It has been particularly difficult to move hands-on research and project-based learning, such as science labs, to a virtual environment without the appropriate equipment and materials,” said Maya Ajmera, President and CEO of the Society for Science & the Public and Publisher of Science News. “By providing teachers and students with STEM research kits and equipment, we hope to accelerate STEM learning and spark a curiosity in science and engineering topics, despite current circumstances.”

In prior years, the Society offered grants of up to $5,000 to educators through the STEM Research Grants program. Educators then used that funding to purchase resources for their classrooms. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the STEM Research Grants program was adapted to provide teachers the necessary tools for effective at-home learning.In order to better help educatorsadjust to their continually shifting environment and to maximize the money being spent, the Society purchased resources in bulk and developed multiple kits for educators to choose from.

Out of the 427 STEM Research Grants applicants, priority consideration was given to teachers in schools that serve low-income areas or underrepresented students.

Here are just a few examples of the 13 available research kits that will allow budding scientists to explore their distinct research interests:

•Foldscope Instruments –These paper microscopes work just like real microscopes and are perfect for students learning from home. Made with paper and lenses, these microscopes can fit right into your pocket and can give you magnifications of over 140X and 2-micron resolution.

•Arduino Starter Kits –With this open-source hardware and software platform, students can get started on learning about electronics. Available in a variety of languages and simple to use at home, teachers can lead students through projects about voltage, current, coding and also the fundamentals of programming. Students can build innovative prototypes with Arduino boards for their science fair projects with this kit

.•PocketLab Weather Sensors –Equipped with a rechargeable battery and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless connection, this sensor technology allows students to easily measure data about the physical world, such as temperature, humidity, pressure, light and more. The data can be collected, visualized and analyzed in a cloud platform, enabling studentsto access the data in real-timeon their iPads or mobile devices.

•Neuron SpikerBox Bundles –Neuroscience isn’t often taught in middle or high school, but this take-home kit from Backyard Brains was fashioned to encourage teens to study the brain and develop future therapies to treat neurobiological disease. The bundle gives budding neuroscientists exposure to the field early, exposing them to overlapping sciences, such as biology, chemistry, computer science and medicine. The built-in bioamplifier will allow students to hear and see action potentials in real-time.

The STEM Research Grants are funded by Regeneron. For a full list of this year’s grant recipients, visit https://www.societyforscience.org/outreach-and-equity/stem-research-grants/recipients/.

End-of-Course Exams: First Semester

Students who are taking Algebra 1, Intermediate Algebra, English 1 & 2, Biology 1, and/or US History (semester classes) will take the EOC exam in January.
